4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a murky orange color with a large, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus fruits, candi sugar, light caramel, and floral hops. Taste of citrus, dank skunkiness, honey, yeast, tobacco, light pine, and a dry, bitter, lightly alcoholic finish.

11.2 oz bottle purchased at Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Pours hazy amber with a large, off-white head, somewhat diminishing with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (hay, straw, nutty), average hops (flowers, herbs), average yeast (horse blanket, barnyard) wit notes of apple, pear, pepper, and coriander. Full bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is slightly hoppy, spicy ginger, herbacious, and a little bretty-apple.
Taste is acidic, sweet caramel malt, apple, and bitterness.
Pours a hazy, conditioned orange with a scant eggshell head.
An odd tasting double IPA. Still get a little bit of ginger and herbs, but the hops are starting to shine a little bit here.
I think this is more like an Orval than a Double IPA, and for 9 percent, this shit is dangerous.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Lustrous metallic-orange body with a sudsy white head and significant carbonation. Even said, “Pffft!” when I opened the bottle. Aroma is of sweet stonefruit, grapefruit, minerals, and a wholesome herbal character. Nicely assertive with pleasant hop flavors, moderate honey-like sweetness, stern bitterness, and some notable heat. Enjoyable lacerative qualities. This is a very good, distinct DIPA. Kind of like early Dreadnaught... but different.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 Bottle, 9.0%. Flowery hop aroma, a little elderflower and a good roughness. Sparkling, hazy copper colour, getting chunky at the bottom. Brilliant tan head, very big, creamy, stable. The flavour starts off sweet. Turns hoppy with flowery and bitter notes. Yeasty finish. Good alcohol level and smooth mouthfeel. Quite late cleansing bitterness.
Bottle, 9%. I think this has been in my cellar for five years. Fruity aroma, slightly acidic, some oxidised notes, but still good. Dark red amber colour with some small bits of yeats floating around. Small stable creamy cream-coloured head. The flavour is quite malty, slightly bretty. Good strong and clean bitterness. Creamy finish with some flowery hops still left. Still good. 8 3 8 3 19

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Quite murkey and orange coloured with a rather large off-white head. Somewhat strange - notes of pines, soap, spices, peach, yeast, banana, cloves and flowers. Quite confusing.
