3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Old notes, 4-5-07. Amber, minimal head. Big in your face, caramel, hop resin, light fruit zest. Flavor on par, as it warms malt backbone comes through a bit more, sweetens up a bit. Sticky mouthfeel. Decent overall.
Draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy amber color with medium foamy head that lingers nicely. Aroma is dominated by fruity and herbal hops. Taste is slightly sweet with a moderate bitterness. Pine and herbs up front and citrus hops in the finish. Bready malt backbone. Pretty smooth, slightly creamy. Medium to thick body. Solid DIPA.

On tap: The aroma is very fruity with moderate orange and citrus hops. It’s a transparent orange with a touch of haze with a small white head that leaves behind very good lacing. The flavor starts very fruity with moderate sweet orange. The finish has moderate some mild grapefruit hoppiness.
