4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle bought outside of Chicago. Pours a clear golden with an orange hue. Aroma of pine and citrus.Flavor is clean with a medium body and rich malty sweetness There is a delicious juicy hop character that blends very well with the malty sweetness. Right up front is lots of caramel and a significant amount of sweetness but it blends perfectly into the high hop flavor and bitterness in this beer. Pine and citrus come through in the flavrwith just a touch of bitterness at the end. This beer leaves a clean palate with fading hops, caramel sweetness, and a hint of alcohol warmth on the tail end. Hop Centric is a delicious and well-rounded beer that is a must try for all DIPA lovers. It is pretty rich and probably too malty for some but it is still a helluva beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a hazy orangish hue with a frothy light orange head and minimal, streaky lacing. Aroma of hops and yeast with hints of citrus & grass. Heavy taste of hops that is well balanced with malt and alcohol. While this delicious Double IPA brings it with 9.9%abv, it is still incredibly drinkable and welcoming.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a translucent copper with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter pine, sweet caramel malt and alcohol. Taste is sweet and malty, bitter pine and citrus. Fairly balanced but a bit too much of a malt presence for my liking.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Initial mild spice that is not indicative of hoppy beers. A mild orange spice that is smooth on the tongue. Little aftertaste but a taste of allspice continues.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at El Bait Shop. Pours a bright mahogany/ copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is barleywine-like, maltcentric, slight fruity and sweet. Fruit is tropical and bordering on dark fruits. Taste is definitely hop forward with a a clean, piney taste. Deep caramel malt backbone and the fruit is like the aroma, straddling tropical and dark. Medium body with a dry finish an a little acidic burn.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clean, full amber in glass. Aroma of orange, caramel and pine. Rich smelling. Taste has a pronounced malt backbone with some bitter citric hops over top. Sweet throughout, even with the hops pulling the other way. Alright, but not a go to.
