3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A decent and drinkable IIPA though with the way this style has gone Iíd almost consider this an IPA nowadays. Aroma was sweet grains with a light grapefruit undertone. Pour was a beautiful light gold with a huge 2 finer puffy head. Taste was slightly hoppy with light malt and grapefruit. Medium carbonation. Very drinkable and hides the alcohol well.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale gold color, slightly cloudy, with medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma is light, refreshing, citrusy with bubblegum notes and light floral hops. Flavor has nice fruity, piney hops up front that ends in a dry pretzel flavor, but bland. It tastes like a weak APA, not a IIPA. I donít know. Could be old and oxidized, itís just- strange. I donít know though because thereís no date on the bottle. Everyone loses when you donít date your bottles. I get a bad beer and you get a bad rating... just buy a stamp machine or whatever so i know not to buy an old beer and rate it poorly. Unless thatís just what it tastes like. I donít know. How does one know?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazed orange gold with a large dense white head. Big spicy citrus on the nose, dusty and malty. Medium-bodied, some nice citrus, but a bit dull. Long citrus edged bitterness on the finish that develops slowly into a huge quinine and grapefruit pith. Starts a little boring but picks up nicely. Alcohol is fairly well hidden.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Save On. Bright clear gold with head and lace. Woody pine and lemon cake aroma. Very mild and complex honey sweetness with subdued fruitiness some crackery malts with grapefuit rind and piney assertive bitter finish. Nice smooth texture and lively-but-not-too-lively carbo. As balanced as I would want a DIPA to be. Excellent.

Hazy, straw-colored pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has citrus with just a hint of pine. It has a medium body with silky texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a mildly bitter finish.

Iím not sure if itís because Iím having this beer after a long day at work, but this is tasting pretty freaking great. The hops are definitely there and the body is nice and thick. Beware the mountain of thick white sticky head that will be unstoppable. Very little bitterness on the palate and very well balanced. Definitely will be picking up more of this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light cloudy orange with a single finger head that produces decent lacing. Lots of citrus and pine in the nose. Taste is floral pine and citrus peel with a touch of yeast flavor and a mildly bitter backside, weaker than expected for a DIPA, Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied with medium carbonation. Overall certainly not a bad IPA, though not as "big" of a beer as I had hoped.
