3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft: very nice double IPA. Lots of tropical fruits and citrus sit on top of a big bready malt backbone.... Nice and sticky hops. Loved it.

I wish I could describe the flavors and feel of what I didn’t like about this beer. I was expecting so much from the makers of hop nosh and was pretty bummed. Its not what I was expecting from the makers of hop nosh. They should have just doubled that recipe.

Bottle from whole foods naples. Pours syrupy copper with wispy off white head. Spruce, pine, peach and a little alcohol. Flavour is chewy caramel sweet with astringent bitterness. Bit of alcohol heat on finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orange amber with a full pale yellow head and lots of lacing. Fruity and spicy aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, grapefruit juice, strong hop bitterness and a slight breadiness. If it weren’t for the high IBU, I imagine the malty sweetness would be cloying.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a beautiful hazy orange fading to gold - a bubble-strewn sunset with a huge foamy white head. Wet lacing. Aroma is candied caramel and peach - apricot citrus. Taste is a nice balance of caramel malts, grapefruit and piney hoppy bitterness. Actively carbonated, sticky and dry on the palate. Finish is strongly bitter with fairly noticable booze. A pretty high quality IIPA - sweetness toned down and balanced with bitter, but the alcohol is a bit dominant.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
We had the first bottle after a homemade pasta dinner. Unfortunately...not paling blame on tomato or bottle compromise...but it left a cat tongue in its wake. Tonight we had a "remember the alamo" moment. Vengeance happened. Clear as mud, as yankees say...smells like syrupy hops...tastes reminiscent of Bells Two Hearted and that’s NEVER a bad thing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy copper pour from bottle. Taste is citrus, pine, hops, dough and booze. A nice blend of hoppy bitterness and biting booziness. Well done.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the bottle of a 4 pack ($8.99) looks like a peach with foam in the glass. I was drawn to it by the Winston Smith like label art, and sold by the 9.5%, the fact that it tasted really good was just a bonus. If this one came in a 6 pack, I might be writing this review on my lap top from jail.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky orange-golden color with a short white thin layer on top. Sweet malt competes with orange citrus aromas. Full and a bit cottony in the palate. A lot of malt there, but less so than is noted in the nose. Citrus comes through evidently and with a notable harshness.
