3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice, toffee-sweet aroma with notes of vanilla and sturdy strawberry esters. OK label, standard longneck. Brumous bronze color, lacing eggshell head. Up front itís a little chemical, especially when cold. Grapefruit pith, caramelized sugars, straw, elm sap, jute twine. Nicely bitter in the middle, but somewhat clingy towards the end. Goes distinctly grassy with a mellow sweetness in the aftertaste as it warms. Hard for me to determine where 2xIPA ends and barleywine begins. Respectable. New Leaf Market, Tallahassee.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish with a off white head. Taste pine, musty, hint citrus. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, reddish orange, darker in color than usual IIPA. Aroma is not strong, some citrus and pine. Flavor is huge though, lots of orange, caramel, apricot, grapefruit. Resiny, hoppy, sweet, a little boozy. Perhaps a bit malty for some but solid and enjoyable overall.

3/24/15 (Draft - Iron Horse Ale House Chicago) - Solid pour, slight tan head, copper red look. Nominal scent, great hoppy taste. Solid feel and texture, moderate carbonation, strong texture, bitter taste and kick going down. Overall excellent beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky copper with thin off white head. Light lacing left throughout. Thereís a tropical fruit, pine, caramel, and light booze aroma. Medium body thatís smooth and creamy on the palate, with a light alcohol warming on the back end. Flavorís of grapefruit, pine, caramel, apricot, citrus, and spices. A decent brew overall. An average DIPA, but definitely worth picking up.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a slightly hazy burnt orange with an off-white head. The aroma blends resiny and citrus hops with light notes of caramelly malts. The taste is quite bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet, but the sweetness comes through more in the aftertaste as the bitterness gradually fades. The palate fuses a soft carbonation, thick texture, a medium body.

12 oz Bottle. Tasted on 12/9/14. Bottle from Gomer's in Kansas City. Pours to a light Amber color with a medium head. Aroma has notes of leather, resin & earthy notes. The taste has pine, resin a darker malt & slight booze. As it warmed the flavors blended better. Overall a pretty good DIPA.
