3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle-I have been wanting to have this one for many years. I wish i had a more fresh sample than this July bottle (over 2 months old). Regardless, i will rate it as it is. Pours slightly hazy dark orange with a very small spritzy white head and sparse lacing. Actually a pretty cool looking brew. Nose is slightly ozidized floral/citric hops, lite alcohol and big sticky robust hops. again, this was not fresh so it smelled a bit on the sweet side. Flavors of big sugary sweet hops to start mixed with a big pale malt base. Finish is huge resinous bitterness-think spearamint, earthy and piney with lots of minty notes. I REALLY want a fresh sample of this beer because i bet its pretty damn fantastic.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly orange gold color with a nice white head. The aroma is mostly pine and orange/tangerine, with some sweet, light colored caramel malt. The flavor brings a lot more malt into the mix, with a slightly toasty note. The hops are very prominent on the back end, lending resinous pine, floral, spicy, and citrus flavors. The alcohol is pretty noticeable but who cares!, this is tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Wine Warehouse. Plan of going to Random Row foiled after a few hours of yard work and not wanting to move off the couch, so letís go big. Pours orange with a large frothy beige head.Nose is very faint under that huge head, so letting it sit a bit. OK, so grapefruit, pineapple, minor caramel. Flavor is full of booze, with a heavy amount of grapefruit peel and almost grapefruit concentrate. Not very malty - which I kinda like, a little grass, and even more grapefruit.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour was amber in color, with hazy body, and a good sized, two finger thick head. The aroma was very potent, even at an armís length. Upon bringing the glass to the nose, I could smell lots of grapefruit, pineapple, and melon. There was also some hay in addition to the tropical fruits. The first sip was was quite bit more bitter than I was expecting, proving flavors of grapefruit pith, bitter orange, and pine. There was a good deal of malt sweetness, and alcohol lurking behind the hop assault. This was a thick, chewy DIPA, providing a hefty mouthfeel. Definitely a DIPA made for sipping.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. This brew was mega boozy, Iím going to allow a bottle to age and see if it smooths out with time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle dated 7/26/16. Pours hazy dark golden orange with a big rocky white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet caramel malt and fruit with piney hops and some fusel alcohol.
The flavor is sweet caramel and toffee malt with some fruit that quickly gives way to a big harsh piney resiny hop bitterness with some noticeable alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, I was hoping for Hopslam but too much harsh alcohol and bitterness.
