3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy dark gold, clingy off-white head. Husky grainy aroma, a little caramel, tropical fruit and carrot tops. Very hoppy, with a parlsley/herbal character and a vegetal bitterness. I liked it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle (8.5%), split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is pretty light, with tropical fruits, citrus and piney hops and caramel. Flavour of orange zest, caramel malts, and citrus hops, finishing off with bitter hops and some candied sugar. The flavours are a bit out of whack and with a semi-bitter edge to the finish, but this is very enjoyable.

22 ounce bottle, thanks Craig. Another IPA that had to much caramel for me. The hop profile was nice;grassy, citrus, pine. The malts where sweet and caramel. No real flaws, just not my style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
8.5%, pours murky orange with nice white head, aroma of pineapple and citrus with some buttery caramel notes. Taste is more sweet than bitter, still a decent balance, but I would like a bit more bitter in this, no real distinguised taste, a bit of citrus, but nothing stands out and wows me. Its a good brew but not the best example for a DIPA.
