4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, my special pre-kickoff treat for Super Bowl XLVII. Seductive amber color, the head is thin but relatively staying. The aroma is pure goodness, promising some nice resiny hops. The promise comes to fruition on the tongue. The beer is full-up piney hops up front, and brings a ruddy malt backbone, too ... yet itís light in palate and exceptionally easy to drink, especially for 9%. Well done. (#4939, 2/3/2013)

"A gem from Thomassova. By the name of the beer, Iíd think this came out a month before VDay, but it sure tastes and smells fresh. Big, dank hops...reminiscent of Maharaja, but a little lighter. Tropical fruit, pine, and orange peel with a malty backbone that only shows when the beer warms. Really nice IIPA."

Gold in color... Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus hops... Flavor is fairly dry for an east coast IPA, but well balanced with sweet caramel malts, citrus hops... Mouthfeel is crisp, solid double IPA, could have fooled me as a west coast IPA... Dry hoppy finish. Nice beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a teku. Pours deep, hazy copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of resinous and floral and citrusy hops, caramel and pale malts, and some dough. Flavor mainly of the hops, but enough maltiness to balance them out. Average texture. A solid beer for the style.

5 20 14. 22 oz bottle into a teku. Clear dark amber body with a finger of light tan foam, tons of lacing. Nose is resinous pine, grass, and loads of citrus. Pretty typical DIPA nose but really nice. Taste is similar, sticky resin and pine with some grapefruit. Dry and bitter yet juicy and fresh hops. This is a really nice DIPA. Always wanted to try this one.

Aroma of hops and fruit, caramel color with a lasting well laced white head. Great taste of fruit, and hops with an oily feel and a bitter sweet palate.
