4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Bavarian Lodge, Lisle. Cloudy, orangey IPA color, sudsy head of bubbles coating the sides of the glass. Smells like an apricot sundae—it’s-just-that-hoppy! Taste is bursting with with syrupy malts and the fruitier side of American hops. Despite the name, I found this to be quite smooth, until I started to feel a bitter burn on my soft palate. Now the more familiar hop character of grapefruit, pine and an otherwise undefinable snap, like, yanking a big strip off a roll of strapping tape.

Drank during the american beer tasting at Marks place 23-4-2016. This was the last beer, after Struise’s double black. Do not remeber all of this beer. From notes that it was very good. Super rich, hoppy.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
5 days old mini-growler. Pours towards a clear amber with a white head. Aroma of big sticky citrus fruits, caramel malts, resin, pine and ripe orange. The taste is sticky and has lots of big hoppy notes and a decent amount of caramel malts behind that. ripe sweet citrus fruits and some resin and pine as well. Don’t know how much the growler has changed this but to me this is an old school american dipa. Good stuff indeed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured cloudy, orange, decent size off white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine and tropical fruit are predominant but there are some malts in there too. Taste is actually on my he sweet side from malts but there are also fruity and hoppy notes, this beer is extremely well balanced and certainly quite enjoyable. Great beer.
