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.

Pours a slightly hazy darker golden color with off-white head. Pine, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a little bread. Nice DIPA.

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.

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.

I don’t rate my beers, but had to bust out one for this gem of a caramel bomb. I take great umbrage with u people rating this crap so high. Nose is of delicious caramels and a bit of orange marmalade. Nice deep copper/amber appearance w a quickly fading head. From there, bollox. Caramel and orange blahhhhhhhh. This is yet another caramel nasty bomb of a dipa. Screw u people who rated this up to a 98. My cat knows to bitter a dipa better than this.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap poured into a sampler glass. The aromas start off with a bit of orange soda, sugar, and a bright cleanser note. This eventually settles to more of a grapefruit, caramel, bread crust, and marmalade combination. It pours a nice, clear orange with a light, creamy white head. A thick ring is retained with a nearly full surface. It leaves behind a dense, micro bubble sheet lace. It’s highly bitter with a medium sweetness. There’s lots of soft carbonation to go along with the thick texture and full body. It finishes with notes of resin, burnt caramel, bitter citrus and pine. The aftertaste is big and lingering with a toast and dry spice character.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Tipples. Lot 1554 but no bottle date. Pours a deep dark orange red color with a beautifully creamy two finger off white head. Aroma is floral hop notes, rich bready malts, crisp and grassy. Flavor is big time caramel malts here, light fruity and floral hop notes, and a dry floral finish. Medium plus mouthfeel, strong bitterness, and medium plus carbonation. The malts really dominate here and it comes off like a very solid American style barleywine than a hoppy DIPA. No bottle date but I assume this is fresh based on the source of the bottle. In any case solid beer, but go in thinking the other end of the DIPA spectrum from the likes of Heady Topper or even Enjoy By.
