4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle Pours a hazy golden with a creamy off white head. Head fades but produces some quality lacing. Has a great hoppy aroma of citrus and spruce. A nice medium body with good carbination. Has a slick texture. A big duration with a great finish.This is a solid beer. Very hoppy and robust. Really sits on the tastebuds for some time. Has a strong bitterness that starts slow and revs up to a wonderful ending. This is real good stuff, I wouldn’t recommend a 12 oz bottle, you’ll just want more.

Draft. Nice citrus aroma with a distinctive malt aroma as well. Medium mouthfeel, with a resiny, mouth coating body. Malt backbone makes this a bit filling, and takes away from hop blast.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A delicious beer that is an overall winner in every catagory for a DIPA. Aroma is hoppy with mango over tones and an underlying dankness that I personally love. Appearance is beautiful light orange, and mouthfeel is dense but still lighter than most beers of this style, making it dangerously drinkable. Taste is maltier and not quite as aggressive as 3F’s other featured DIPA, Arctic Panzer Wolf, but still packs an awesome punch. In 2013, this isn’t nessecarily a super-unique beer, but it’s does everything right.

Citrus, pine and mango in the aroma. Cloudy light amber color with nice head. Bitter citrus, pine and onion taste. Perfect mouthfeel. Bitter aftertaste liners more than it should.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle in trade from Fletche00. Nice orange color, with a medium, beige head. The lacing is thick and persistent. The aroma is mangoes, sweet potatoes, caramel, pine, and a lot of herbs. Intense bitterness, cut with a mild, grainy sweetness. Heavy body, sticky, thick, acidic, with a harsh, metallic mouthfeel. The finish is sticky and bitter, and very persistent. Overall, this is an immense, flavorful DIPA. The mouthfeel and aftertaste are very overpowering, and not very pleasant. Still, this a delicious, irresistible, and great tasting beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle pours semi-clear amber with nice finger of head. Got this one fresh. Nose is big fruity hops, orange, pineapple, lemon, citrus. Taste is tons of tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, citrus, with a very nicely balanced malt presence that holds up the hops well. Finish is bitter juicy grapefruit and pine resin, a touch of heat as it warms, lasts. Amazing DIPA.

Bottle. Pours a copper orange color with white head. Resiny, grassy, hoppy, piney aromas. Hoppy, resiny, grassy, earthy, piney flavors. Very hoppy and you can taste the alcohol a little. Really hoppy beer, quite good. Not quite 100 Percentile in my mind, but I wouldn’t mind having a few of these.

Bottle via trade. Pours a medium amber-orange, little head. Aroma biscuit malt, resin, maybe some booze. Really nice in the nose. Body lively, effervescent, finish slightly sweet, well-balanced.
