2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy, orange-copper with a off white head. Piney aroma with a little bit of citrus. Taste is not too good - a little mediciny. Many other better IPAs or DIPAs out there. Will not buy again.

Weird IIPA. Despite the triple IPA strength it drinks smaller and less hoppy than most in the 8-9% range. Grapefruit and apple(?) forward nose and flavor. Just weird.

Can. Shiny amber pour, super still, yet with a big ol’ head. The aroma is largely of tropical fruit salad. This also drinks with a distinct fruity character, super sweet and syrupy. This is pretty unique for a DIPA IMHO, and not what I expected. (#6163, 4/3/2016)

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can pours with a crystal clear copper body that has gold hues and supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up an odd earthy soapy sort of sensation as well as thin notes of citrus like gummy bears and floral hops and faint gravel. The taste starts with a blend of citrusy juicy hops, fussel like boozy pear and apple sweetness and then some sweet malts. To midway a thin resiny pine hop note comes to the surface to help pull this back toward being an IPA but fails in the end. For a drinking experience this does the trick but this is an odd IIPA.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is lemon and flowers.
The taste is mild bitterness... a little lemon and other citrus.
The texture is medium.
It’s easy drinking but not much flavor.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can, best by 3/11/16. Light amber, with a thin head and minimal lace.
Aroma is light citrus hops. DIPA? Maybe they forgot the aroma hops. Flavor is sweet crystal malt, sweet orange, citrus peel.
High ABV is hidden well, but there really isn’t much going on. I had high hopes after Grandma’s brown was so good. For a DIPA this one misses the mark.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a copper color with a head that fades to nominal lacing. Aroma of citrus, bit of pine, fruit and bit of malt sweetness. Taste of citrus, grain, some malt sweetness and fruit. Hoppy bitterness that lingers into the finish. Medium body, a bit fruity, with an awkward feel. Not what I expected for an Imperial IPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can shared at the Half Marathon tasting - May 2015. Pours a light golden body with thick white head and lacing. Mouthfeel is grainy, bitter and boozy with notes of sticky malt sweetness, crackery character, dry fruits and light bitterness on the palate. Not great.
