3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper with a tall tan head. Aroma is citrus and grass, spicy hops, a hint of malt. Taste citrusy hops with a bitter slightly boozy finish. Fine carbonation, nice mouth feel, just right for a DIPA.

2/10/12 bottle date
750 ML bottle
Orange copper color with a light brown head. Good body to the head and nice sticky lacing with this.
Nose is mostly candied orange, grass and sweet malt.
Taste is pretty much the same but more medicinal and grassy.
Sweet body and harsh grassy bitterness with a lot of candied orange and grapefruit. Lighter bodied and pretty clean really.
A bit faded but not bad. Not great at this point but has held up decently

Small sample from a bottle@SBWF2011. Deep amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops along with some mild floral and grassy notes. Flavour is sweet malts, fruity and floral along with some mild herbal notes. Pleasantly balanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle from Cardinal in Niles. Pours an unclear orange with a long lasting orangey-white head. Nice drops of lacing as I work through the glass. Aroma has fresh fruit, overripe citrus, pine and resin. Taste is of sugary sweet oranges, pine, sticky resin and bitter grapefruit. Heavy simcoe, I would wager, as well as quite a bit of alcohol presence. Syrupy. Strong. Finishes bittersweet and sticky, getting sweeter as I get down through the bottle. Interesting IIPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich, hop character of grapefruit and pine. Full bodied and smooth. Wonderful texture and no bitter hop finish. Round and creamy, with a fair amount of toasty, caramel malt rounding out the finish, with lingering notes of hops. Enjoyable and crowd pleasing.. Likely a bit of a let down for those wanting a hoppy, bitter finish.

Wow. Just, wow. Pours very clear and dark amber with a thick head. Great hoppy nose to it with similar hoppiness in the taste. Super easy drink that is also super tasty.

Had a fresh one. Sad to say i wasn’t a big fan. I’ve always favored malts, but the great beers strike a clean balance. That wasn’t present here, in a bottle of what basically equated to carbonated, alcoholic hop water.

Cloudy dark gold with a nice malty pine aroma. Moderate body with pine and a bit of grapefruit that lingers nicely on the tongue. Good beer.
