3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bomber. Pours opaque orange copper with a foamy, frothy off white head. Tastes like strong hops, strong malt, strong orange citrus. Sweet, dry feel, but medium body and carbonation. Smells like malty, nutty, orange, sweet hops, and malt.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, light to moderate herbs and pine for the hops, dough for the yeast, with a hint of coriander. Head is average to large, frothy, off-white with some darker swirls, has good lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is murky medium amber/orange. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily, with a lively carbonation. A little too malt forward for a true to style DIPA but it’s full of flavors and is very easy to drinking.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vintage 2013. Hazy orange copper pour with good white head. Slightly stinky Orange citrus and forest pine aroma and flavor. Subtle notes of honey and caramel malt. A little hop sweetness up front, but Very bitter on the tail. Not amazing, but not certainly drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very drinkable IPA. Not aggressive enough to be deemed a DIPA, but perhaps a month earlier trip to Capone’s would have made a difference.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Large, rocky, off white head with excellent retention and a ton of coating lace.Ugly ass, murky orange/copper hued brew, looks like Tang. Nice, spicy hop nose, floral and earthy with notes of fruit, citrus and mango with large piny effort. Body is full, juicy, chewy and resiny with a very gentle carbonation, sorta silky. Big pine and citrus flavors are daunting but worth the effort and bury the malts easily. Lil sulphur finishes a dry biting hop bitterness. No need for a C+C bottle though. Fairly big brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Orange rind, resin, and pine. Light crackery malts. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, aggressive bitterness. A bit heavy handed with the hops, but enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Cloudy orange. Lovely hoppy aroma full of citrus and tropical fruits, a bit "green". Dry-ish flavor with faint sweetness, lots of fruity hops and a nice big bitterness. Medium-bodied, slightly heavy. A good one.
