2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Cask Republic - New Haven, CT. Plain, green, planty aroma. The flavor follows through in a lot of bitterness and coppery malt. Clean, but yellow with raw hoppiness. I can’t get into this, it feels like an overly bitter Amber Ale with young flavor hops.

Moderate sample pour of bright golden straw with white head. Nose is straw and grassy notes, loads of citrus. Flavor is bright and clean, refreshing, plenty of citrus, lemon peel, dry and resinous. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very nice deep orange colour and a floral, honey nose. Taste is nice but nothing great, quite hoppy but not very complex.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - lightly hazy gold - nicely balanced DIPA - not overly bitter-abrasive or overly-sweet like many others tend to be (sometimes both) - starts with a clean, sweet citrus flavor - dries out through the middle, but the hops are very juicy and highly citric - however, they also bring a bright, quenching acidity - might not be too extreme for many fans of the style, but I really like the balance to this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is restrained, but as the beer warms I am finally able to pull a medicinal note and honey malt from the glass. Full-bodied with an abrasive mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Heaps of bitter citrus rinds and piths in the flavor and lingering finish. Dries out a good bit. Bottle courtesy of BriceNice!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Hazy dark gold pour with a mid range lingering off white head. Beak had notes of caramel malt, citrus and piney hop with similar traits unfolding flavour wise. Decent enough balance struck with a bit of heat from the abv towards the finish. Plenty of bitterness on offer. A solid cover drive of a DIPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light on the malt, heavy on the hops, but not too bitter. I like DIPA’s generally, but this one is pretty one dimensional. Reminiscent of the ’flavor of the week’ at the local brewpub, nice try but not a keeper.
