3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a murky, sediment-heavy copper with a thick tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel and piney, bitter citrus hops. Flavor follows suit, with a strong semi-sweet malt foundation and plenty of piney hops. Pleasant, mild booziness. Solid, but I suspect it may have been better fresher - I noticed after purchase that it was bottled in April and consumed in December. Come on Oade’s, take the old shit off the shelf.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This double IPA poured a nice caramel colour with a huge light tan head. Scents include ripe fruit, malt, butane? and citrus. First swig was smooth and creamy. Malty smoothness with lots of hop on a nice malty base. A little caramel in there too... Finish is bitter with hops lingering...

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft - Light amber color. Only a slight better ness with a good amount of sweetness. Citrus flavors all around with hints of grapefruit sprinkled into the flavor profile. Have an alcohol taste on this 9% ABV. Average beer. For a imperial/double IPA has more sweetness than I would like on this style of beer.

Hazy dark amber color with lots of sediments and medium white head. Dank aroma, with earthy notes, tropical fruits, pine and citrus hints. Taste follows the aroma, very dank, with passionfruit, grapefruit, pine, citrus and a strong earthy and resiny background, followed by a big bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served within a week of the best by date. Served from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma is hoppy with notes primarily of resin and floral. One and a half finger slightly off white head dissipated fairly quick. Leaves plenty of lacing. Beer is a hazy orange amber color. Taste is medium bitter with resin, floral and citrus notes. Lightly sweet finish with a lingering bitterness. Light to medium bodied beer with a fairly thin texture and average carbonation. Overall decent, enjoyable IPA. Simcoe hops are not my favorite variety of hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is hoppy, pine and floral dominate with a tropical fruit as well. Appearance is almost orange, white head, strange. Taste is delicious, pineapple with pine, a malt presence but that’s forgivable. Mouthfeel is somewhat crisp, yet decently thick for the style. Overall, it’s very good despite the weird color.
