3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle poured into nonic. Hazy golden-orange with floaties and a stiff finger plus of white head that lasts nearly the entire drink. Some streaky lacing. Aroma is citrus hop, grapefruit, bready malt, maybe a hint of caramel. Taste is medium bitterness with citrus and floral notes, spicy rye (some say onion; I don’t get that), and light sweetness from that bready/caramel character. Medium bodied, slick, resinous texture, moderate to soft carbonation, bitter drying finish.

22 oz. bomber. Poured burnt orange with thin white head that dissipated quickly. Big malt, caramel sweetness, complex mix of orange, grapefruit, and resinous pine. Touch boozy. Dry finish. Been a while since my last but seemed like an aged Dreadnaught. Very solid, just not quite my style IIPA.

How: Bottle (22 oz) at tasting. Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks!
>>> A good DIPA that is not too sweet but a bit too boozy to be easily drinkable/enjoyable.
+ The malt base isn’t taking too much place and I think a little more hops (or maybe it’s just freshness) could do wonders
+ The tropical fruits and citrusy hops are well supported by a lean caramel presence and a mild spiciness
− While I like the fact that the malt base isn’t taking too much place, I think that it might not be strong enough to support the alcohol and therefore feels too boozy for my liking
− The beer is nicely hopped, but definitely not on a similar level than FFF hoppy beers that "wowed" me in the past like Zombie Dust and Dreadnaught
○ No idea about when this was bottled, so freshness might be an issue here
Flavors: Tropical fruits, caramel, citrus, mild spiciness

Pours hazy golden with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, flowers, oranges. Taste is of citrus, flowers, alcohol. Palate: Medium body. Light carbonation. Overall: Quite good, but quite unfortunately seems a couple weeks over the hill.

Bottle shared by JulienHuxley, thanks dude! It pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of fruits, pine and some sweetish cereals. Taste is if oranges, pine, weed and moderately bitter. Some alcohol but nothing bad for an IIPA. Moderate body and carbonation. Pretty good, fairly easy to drink for a IIPA.
