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.

Draft @ beer temple. Standard double IPA. It has all the traits, but it’s just a but boring and has nothing to make it stand out. Just the usual hops and some more malt in the body.

Sampled at Blues and Brews. Pours slightly hazy amber/orange with a short off white head. Lots of pine resin on the aroma, secondary fruit scent. Little more fruit in the flavor, with orange and tangerine. Still more bitter than sweet. Good malt base. Body is thinner than you would expect. Bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle with a date of 7/22/14. Orange amber color with light bubbly head in the snifter. Tiny particles floating in the brew. Aroma of fruit ( light peach) but mostly strong pine hops. More like whole hop pellets from the home brewers supply shop.
Main base of the beer has some caramel/ toffee malt. The hops are earthy with just a ton of pine. The bitterness is long lingering and abrasive. And abrasive in this case is not pleasant because the alcohol also can be detected. Pretty dry texture. I think if they can integrate more fruit with more malt balance and hide the alcohol, this would improve it greatly.
