4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. This came a dark and clear gold with a fat white head and very nice lacing in my pint glass. The nose was strongly citrus with some flowers as well. Relatively heavy body for an IPA and very slick on the palate going down. The flavor shows the alcohol just a bit and the flavor is a good balance between malts and hops, leading to a long bitter finish. An excellent DIPA that was easier drinking then many others of this type. Well done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Very nice vanilla and grain aroma and taste with the alcohol fairly well hidden. A dangerous brew.
