Pours orange hued copper with a slightly off white head. Aroma is floral, citrus and a touch of toast. Taste is a good amount of bitters that sweetens towards the finish. Medium bodied, slick texture and overall a very solid DIPA, the aroma is excellent.

Draft at Yard house. First wiff smacks you with fresh hops. Notes of citrus and grapefruit hang around. Also get some pine. Taste brings out a strong malt backbone and an alcohol burn. Solid IIPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber with a tight sudsy off white head that fades to a tight foamy film with plenty of lacing. Aroma has subtle hop presence with sweet caramel malt playing the field. Taste is sweet spicy bitter hops of pins spruce and caramel malt. Palate is medium sticky and crisp/dry. Solid, but not anything new in terms of pushing boundaries.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear orange / golden with a beige head, The aroma has lots of grapefruit, bits of pineapple, pine, dry caramel and crackers. The body is pretty rough with a bit of aggressive carbonation. The flavor starts with grapefruit zest, pine, woodiness and the caramel / crackery malt. The finish has a bit of sweetness and alcohol, but is still pretty hop forward with a rough and resiny sort of thing. Pretty solid.

First beer sampled on my beer wandering quest in the Deep South of America turns up a little on the underwhelming side of things. Well, its not that itís a bad beer at all, itís just the the ratings below mine -- with so many busting into the 4.0ís made me think this would be a beer that exceeded expectations. Nope. Clearly over rated. Despite this disclaimer, lets agree that this is an enjoyable DIPA. The hops are punchy but they lack the juicy resin that I often enjoy in the style. Malts in the front, hops in the back. Love the label, glad I tried it, just find the super high ratings hard to swallow.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear bright copper-colored dark amber, big frothy beige head, broken sheets of lace. Taste is assertive caramel malt that never gives in to equally strong hops on the swallow. As much as the hop presence grabs attention, so too does the caramel. A bold brew that never betrays its alcohol, except through the full bodied malt and hops. It is good enough to be dangerous on a long night.
