3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of dkachur. Pours hazy deep gold with copper core and thin tan head. The aroma is mild musty sticky malts, pine hop bitterness and not much else. The taste is pine and floral hop flavors mixing with a nice malty sweetness before moving toward increasing hop bitterness and a touch of grain. Nice stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Natty Greenes, Greensboro NC on 13 July 2006. Hazy ginger colour. Lots of grapefruity hops. Clean, sharp mouthfeel with plenty of bitterness. Some sweetness but not too sticky and the alcohol is not too hot. A pretty decent DIPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Bill! Poured clear, lighter orange with a short, dense cap of eggshell head. The aroma picked up juicy, candied pineapple and floral notes over sweet caramel malts and a touch of vanilla.. quite candy-like.. enjoyed it. The flavor opened with tangy citrus and peppery notes, leading to sweet caramel and some grapefruit meat at the core.. more peppery and floral notes on the edges, but the overall bitterness remained a bit constrained.. slight oxidation was present.. sweetness and sourness clashed a little on the finish. Medium-bodied with very tightly packed carbonation on the palate.. a bit too sweet overall.. balance was alright, though. This was not bad on any front, but it failed to pass the threshold into the "good" realm.

Growler courtesy of kp sampled on 1/4/07: Pours a hazy copper orange with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of sweet, candy-like caramel malt has a citrusy hoppy presence. Body starts sweet and pale malty with nice fresh green piny and citric hoppy balance. A nice, fresh IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Opaque and murky chestnut, with a small but firm head. The aroma is somewhat mellow, and the beer I easy-drinking. Mild citrus and some musty grassiness. (#4429, 1/1/2012)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange, and rather syrupy looking, too. No head. Very heavy aroma of hops and alcohol. Thick and malty, with a surprisingly big caramel and brown sugar flavor, considering how hoppy it smells. Plenty of big citrusy hops, too, though. nice blending of sweet and bitter thoughout, and rather dryish finish. At 2007 Hickory Hops.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler at Immy’s Tasting on 7-22-06. Unopened and leftover at RBSG so I took this home and into the fridge it went. I believe chris_o purchased this - thanks Chris! Copper bodied. Nose is hoppy, malty, and citrusy. Taste is malt with loads of hops, pine, and citrus fruits. Body is medium-full and chewy. Light oily feel as well. Finishes with more furits (melon, pear and tangerine), sweet amlts, caramel, hops and pine. Nice stuff!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color ale with super large foamy head with great retention and super good lacing. Aroma of slightly bitter hops with a medium caramel malt backbone. Taste is also dominated by some caramel malt with notes of medium bitter hops. Body is a bit thin but carbonation is super great with no appearance of alcohol. I thought hops were a bit shy for the style and malt backbone could have more dominant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has a murky orange body with a brownish orange head. Serious lacing here. The aroma is rife with grapefruit, orange zest, and pine atop a strong sweet malt scent. Thick bodied, it has a sturdy caramel body with enough hop bitterness to make this hophead smile. The finish is a prolonged citric and pine bitterness. Not too shabby.
