3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the tap at the Brewery: Beautiful orange/amber color, hint of haze, with a creamy head. Nutty aroma with a little bite. Assertive taste with bitter notes right up front that soften into a tangy aftertaste. Full body but creamy texture. Overall, because of it;’s assertiveness, this is probably a one or two per sitting beer, but with this beer, that’s enough. Very nice DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It poured with an orange-amber body with an off white head that had good retention and lace. Aroma was very hop forward. A strong grapefruit quality upfront notes of pine and tropical fruit. At times there was a citronella presence. Flavor had a nice caramel malts initially. A nice bitterness from the hops, but there was more grapefruit than anything else. Slight hint of alcohol. Finish was very dry. A nice beer
