4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Details left out as I was writing it down when drinking. Orange pretty murky stuff with a big head. Looks like a proper dipa indeed. Fruity, hoppy and malty aroma, pretty complex. Oily smooth mouthfeel. Bitterish aftertaste, not that much though. Some alcohol.
I’d have another and with a bit more time to drink it, please.

Tastes like itd been aged in bourbon barrels. Bit on the heavier side for my personal taste for DIPA. Couldnt drink too many of these..and i enjoy some DIPAs

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes (10/16/15). Pretty straightforward, slightly under-inspired DIPA. Lots of pine and not much fruit from the Simcoe. Not bad, though.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is a glass of 2003--an amber colored, super bitter, super sweet IPA. It smells like a pine forest complete w/ a damp pad of pine needles and earth underfoot and tastes like hopped malt extract. It is big and syrupy on the palate w/ a bit of alcohol burn to it. This is really typical of everything wrong w/ the giant IPAs of decades past and I’m glad most brewers have moved on.

Bottle. Hazy dark orange with small foamy beige head, strong citrus peel aroma, low carbonation, sweetish start followed by bitter citrus peel taste, thickish body, medium bitter finish. The expiration date had passed, and it felt a bit too bitter. I am not sure whether it was because of that though.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, it seems best before March 4, 2016, oops. Opaque reddish medium brown with small beige head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, lower carbonation, and a little lacing. Taste is herbal hops, caramel malt, resin, and bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at whole foods Auburn Hills. Pours deep honey spiked with melted caramel. Off white head. Aroma is big pine, resin, tropical pineapple, slight orange and grapefruit biscuit malt, dank hops. Wow, this feels like a West coast double to me. Kinda like a knee deep sorta deal almost. Flavor is pine, resin, malt, sugar sweetness from the high abv, pineapple, grapefruit. Wow, really really good.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a creamy off-white foamy head. Very clingy with lots of lacing. Tons of sediment suspended in the glass. Medium citrus and a pine resin aroma. Surprisingly smooth with just a hint of bitterness on the roof of the mouth and at the finish. Very well balanced with a thicker malty flavor masking any harshness or bitterness. Hides the alcohol well. Refreshing and very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber color with lots of floaters, clearly unfiltered. Nose is malts and faint citrus. Taste is malts, lots of sweetness, some citrus, and maybe a little very faint mango. This one is very similar to Sierra Nevada Hoptinum in look, nose, and taste. Not my favorite dipa.

12oz bottle. Pours orangish amber with off-white head. Aroma is Malt, Mango and papaya. Taste is sweet malty citrus pine and alcohol up front with a fruity mango/papaya alcohol warmth finish. Pretty good but a little too malty for my personal preferences.
