4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a dark orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy beige-orange head that left great lacing. The aroma was sweet pine, tropical fruits, pineapple and a bit of tobacco. The flavor was sweet sugar, a strong tropical fruit presence and notes of pineapple, grapefruit, leather and tobacco. Long finish of pineapple, tropical fruits, leather and tobacco. Full bodied. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, copper pour with an off-white head. The aroma has earthy hops along with roasted malt. It has a full body with thick texture and average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet in the beginning, then it finishes bitter and slightly dry.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Herbal, fruity hop aroma and flavor; plus, some spicy hop flavor. Sweet, grainy malt. Too sweet--but otherwise a nice flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 4/12/13. Pours a dark but transparent amber, with a foamy, long-lasting light-tan head. Aroma is sweet, dank, resinous...caramel and pine. Flavor is sweet, resinous, piny with some fruit elements in the sweetness. Moderately bitter finish lingers for a bit, with the bitterness becoming more pronounced. A really nice, resinous DIPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle, and poured to snifters with a hazed, orange/amber hue, and some modest, off white head foam & spotty lacing. The aroma was some dank grain, citrus & resin, caramel, and malty sweetness. Medium bodied, the flavor notes were similar to the aroma’s, with still a decent hop bitterness & dryness for being approximately a year old. The alcohol presence, on the other hand, seemed to have waned a bit. Thanks, Craig!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the corked, caged bottle dated 02/27/13. It pours a beautiful bronze-amber with a tremendous, puffy off-white head that lingers. The aroma presents itself with floral hops but in a mild, mellow way. The body is medium to bold. The taste starts out with a slight malty character and develops swiftly into a hoppy one that ends slightly dry. The alcohol is well-integrated into the flavor. An IPA I could have often.
