3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: October 22, ’13.
A: Tropical fruit, orange, mango, and hops. Really floral and fresh.
A: Pours a slight cloudy golden orange color, with a nice one finger off white head at the top, leaves a pretty good amount of lacing around the glass.
T: Initially an earthy hops bitterness followed by a mild caramel and citrus sweetness. The malt character is hearty but there isn’t much balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy.
P: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: A decent 2IPA but there are several others in the style that I would pick first.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap. Slightly hazy golden body, lasting white head. Aroma of honey, grapefruit, honeydew melon, bubble gum and hop resin. Taste of honey, honeydew melon, pine, grass, bubble gum and peach. Huge hop character in the taste and aroma, but it’s not super bitter. Very nice DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of dank bud, surprisingly smooth with just as surprising of biting, parting finish. Not boozy at all, not watery either...good balance to say the least. After the quick bite at the end, back to the smooth body and a slightly warming sensation but again, not boozy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep, clear gold with an amber hue and a small white head. Aroma of orange zest, pineapple, lemon thyme, mellow peaches and pears, sweet caramel malts, pine, some notes of overly ripe mango, cereals with honey and alcohol. Pretty strong. Taste is nice, sweet, medium bitter. Full, oily body with medium but lively carbonation. Lingering finish of bitterness and sweet ripe fruit. <b />
Very nice. A little boozy, intense ripe fruits. Big, bold, pleasant.
