3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 12 fl. oz. An unclear, orange beer with thick, frothy, off white head. Aromas of grapefruit and butterscotch. Creamy texture and full-bodied with little carbonation. Flavor is nicely balanced with heavy malt sweetness and a lingering bitter ending. Much more malty than most IPAs I’ve tried. Similar to Indica from the Lost Coast brewery, only stronger. Overall, a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber pour, foamy off-white head. Citrus and a little spice in the aroma. Sweet malt taste with a slightly bitter finish. Not a big enough hop presence in this one for my liking. Much better DIPAs available.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appears a hazy, orange toned amber with a 2 finger, fluffy, off-white head that fades into a small cap. Tons of dry hopped fallout floats around the brew like nuclear sludge. Plenty of scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of biscuit, caramel, pine, grass, and mild fruit notes.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a slightly herbal scent mixed with brown sugar also coming through in the flavors.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, boozy, fizzy, with hints of creaminess, chewy, sweet, and lightly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... Poured a foggy, burnt orange with a white, frothy head. Bitter hop aroma, flavors of citrus fruits, earthy hops, and a mellow malt presence. Kind of timid for a double but still a tasty brew.
