3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours as a amber with an orange hue to it. it is a bit cloudy. The head is actually kind of peach in color. It actually has a bit of a caramel smell mixed with the citrus. There are apricot flavors that dominate the flavor with other hops and malts. It is not as bitter as must brews in this category.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grunt fill from Albertsons. Dark amber pour, small creamy head, lots of lacing. Aroma is nice rich blend of hops and malts, while taste features a much richer malt base. Caramel and toffee, nice hop bite at the finish. Much better than expected.

Hazy orange with a thin white head. Citrus aroma. Both citrus and pine flavors. Definitely qualifies as a dank beer. Well done though unremarkable DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, can’t see a date. Amber with an off white head that’s soon a coat but laces OK. Aroma of kumquats, grapes, toast, some overripe tropical fruit. 6+ Sweet with caramel, peach, tropical fruit, citrus. Not very vibrant but pleasant enough. Resin and bitterness creep up. Another Mad River beer where it feels like they’ve chosen to make a harmonious beer rather than try to be on the bleeding edge. Fair enough.

12 oz bottle poured at a restaurant in Humboldt County. Pours a thick copper orange with a rocky foam head. Rich caramel and soft pine hops aroma with a matching flavor. Good malt bill. Creamy.
