Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of resiny pine and grapefruit with a lightly toasted caramel background. The taste was of light caramel sweetness with lots of juicy piny hop flavor and good bitter balance before a drier, citrusy bittersweet finish. Very nice.

On draft at Brothers in South Bend IN. Pours a hazy amber with a frothy white head. Feint hop aroma. Flavor much more intriguing with grapefruit and some sweet pineapple. Bitter finish.

My phone died after I had calculated the total score. Luckily, the ratebeer app saved it. The aroma was a little off on this one. Maybe just too much malt or just too generic? Taste is good and bitter, somewhat making up for the aroma. Palate was off.

Amber pour with a small white head. Overall, this beer wasn’t as complex as I would have liked. No presence of the floral or citrus hop notes I like so much. It’s well-balanced from a malt/hop standpoint but not interesting enough. Plenty of room for improvement here.

Bottle. The pour is pretty clear and bright orange. The aroma has faint hops and some sweetness. The taste is fairly mild for a iipa. Solid, not too bitter and a lot of flavor.

Pour from 22oz bottle. Clear orange amber brew with small head. Aroma of caramel, floral hops, a little spice and resin. Taste is sweet caramel at the start with moderate hops at the finish. Very nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In general I found this brew to be pretty average and unimpressive. The aroma did not have the big hop bouquet that I expect from an imperial IPA. Flavor was bitter and hoppy, but lacking a punch. None of the huge citrus I want. Pretty malty, really. It’s not bad, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

Out of a keg at the ’13 Cincy Beerfest. Burnished gold color with a sticky off white head. Sweet hop resin nose. Flavors of candied grapefruit rind, resin, apricot and orange marmalade on biscuits. Some pineapple and apple sauce with a long orange rind finish. Nice DIPA.
