4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Of the maltier DIPAs, this is my clear favorite. Big and bold hops paired with intense malts balance nicely against the 8.5 ABV.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a light amber color with a big cream-colored head. Retention is good and the surface has been covered with foam for 45 minutes now. Nice. Hoppy, but a strange hoppy. It’s floral and orange citrusy, but there’s a non-malty sweetness there that’s hard to place. Just smells slightly sweet in a very light way. There’s also a hint of an after-smell that reminds me of my homebrew IPA that I could never quite place. Not as hop-forward as the smell. It has more bittering hops than aromatic hops, it seems. The bitterness comes even before the maltiness. The malt just barely peeks through and then fades to a lingering bitterness. Again, there is that strange homebrew flavor that I still can’t place. Medium heavy body, but not too boozy or sweet. A little creamy. Well made, if a little underwhelming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden orange from the can with dissipating off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of sweet caramel malt over citrus and pine hops. Taste follows, more toward the hop than the nose though, goal notes and bittersweet finish. Booze is nicely hidden, good beer but nothing too exciting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around, with bread for the malt, orange and grapefruit for the hops, soap for the yeast, with a hint of dried fruit and alcohol. Head is small, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and faintly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a lively carbonation. A bit sweeter than I like for a DIPA, but this one it still nicely made and relatively easy drinking.

Nice IPA, slight scent with a nice golden color. A good light IPA taste without any aftertaste so overall very nice with a not-to-heavy taste

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy amber from a bottle. Nose is a little like nail polish remover, with some oaky notes. Flavor is a combo of floral and bitter hops, with some residual maltiness. A balanced mouthfeel. Good beer.

12 ounce can poured into a brandy snifter thanks to lukaduke. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has tropical fruits, pine, grass. The taste maintains the same profile as the aroma with medium bitterness and medium sweetness. Finishes a little floral. Medium carbonation.
