3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle dated 19 June 2012 served in a snifter. Poured a murky, orange-amber color with essentially no head. Nonetheless, some lacing was left on the glass, The fruity nose foreshadows a flavor in which grapefruit, lemon, lime and other vague fruit flavors dominate, with some pine resin too. Plenty bitter, as expected, but the bitterness and harshness of a high ABV DIPA are both tempered by a detectable sweetness and some light maltiness.
O: A very drinkable DIPA, yet disappointing overall. Strong points are the mouthfeel where it does relatively well for a high ABV DIPA, and hoppy/fruitiness. A little overpriced; this local SC beer cost (about $8) as much or more than fine beers coming all the way from the West coast (e.g., many from Stone and Rogue).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 65 ml. Hazy orange with a small white head. Very hoppy, ripe fruity nose with herbal accents. Taste is sweet, toasted caramel mixed with greasy, almost oily piney, grapefruity hops. Full bodied, harsh and almost rancid heavy bitter finish. A little too bozzy and head on for my liking. No subbtleness.

Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of citrusy fresh hops, peach, orange, juicy but still some malts in the background. Otherwise pretty hop forward. Taste of fresh pine, citrusy hops, peach, rather dusty and some grapefruit. Malts are more subtle here.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, yes this could have been fresher, but let’s give it a fair chance.
Amber with an off-white head leaving lacing.
Aroma: freshly cut grapefruit, peach, vanilla.
Taste: loads of fruit, grapefruit, other citrus fruits, tropical fruits, sweet caramel, vanilla, medium bitter.
This had a nice fruitiness I really liked, would love to try it fresh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
What impressed me the most about this beer is how, regardless of other peoples’ evaluations of this beer, it thankfully tastes nothing like fresh grapefruit: rather, it compliments the ingredients so well that it just tastes like a really fresh version of a grapefruity, citrus hop variety. Coupling grapefruit with Cascade was a great idea. Bright in appearance, fresh, refreshing, and actually pretty respectable.

Bottle from Murphy. Aroma and flavors were of sweet grapefruit and citrus. Nice maltiness in there, and the palate was excellent and controlled. Very good beer.
