3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Wedge. Pours a hazy medium to deep amber with a thin lasting white head. Aroma is similar to the regular IPA- lots of amarillo- mango, tropical, with some columbus - dankness, resiny- medium sweet honey and caramel malts. Flavor is resinous hops, sweet and fruity hops, peach, mango, pear, green raisin, honey and pine and dankness- a bit too sweet for a DIPA, but overall it is nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brownish orange, with a nice beige head. Huge piney citrusy caramelly nose. Rich and almost decadent palate. Mostly piney bitterness on top of caramel, toffee malty flavors. Perhaps the experience is enhanced by sitting at the brewery and watching trains go by on a crisp Fall afternoon, but I really liked this brew...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Orangish amber in color with a medium-sized white head. Nice orange and citrus aroma with complex hops and a bit of sweet malt. Pale and caramel malt base with grapefruit, tangerine, and resinous hops as well as some honey. Dry and bitter. Mouthfeel is nice, medium-plus bodied with good carbonation and you can feel the IBUs. Nice DIPA overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown-orange, thick whitish cover. Toffee raisin aroma. Taste is slick, toffee, caramel, raisin, figgy. This is much more barley wine than DIPA, which unless I was drunker than I thought was how it was written on the chalkboard.

A little disappointed in this one. Not really hoppy at all, but not bad bouquet of big beer aroma.
