3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from StFun (thanks Josh), pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of orangey hops, wheat, some resin and syrupy caramel malts. Flavour brings out pungent resinous hops, tropical fruits, oranges, and slightly syrupy caramel malts. Quite an astringency from the hops, yet the caramel malt is very prominent as well. Good stuff, but too heavy on the malts for me and the malt is a bit too syrupy for me. Overrated.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Batch 81. Enjoyed in a tulip. Poured a slightly cloudy orange hue with a 2 finger head. Nose is earthy with a grassy bit with nice peach and mango notes. Taste is very well rounded. Extreme bitterness. Lots of citrus. Very earthy and drinkable. Only annoying thing is the big malt presence but it is a 9.5% IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle generously shared by the nice lady sitting next to me at the preHunahpu Thursday tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is an explosion of tropical fruit hops with some citrus pith, Unicorn tears, and some caramel. Flavor is the same caramel with a ba-bomb of Galaxy hops and tropical fruit and a bit of booze with a hint of bliss on the end. Just a hint. Outstanding Galaxy IPA.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks Doug. This beer is super fruity, grassy, mango, juicy, citrus. My only complaint would be that it is one dimensional.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at RBWG! Pours a golden orange with thick off-white foamy head and good sticky lacing. Aroma of caramel malt up front, a funky resinous hop finish, piney and sweet. Taste follows, nice sticky, resinous mouth with a bitter finish. Pretty damn good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
651mL at RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours a clear lighter orange. Rocky, off-white foam. Webby lacing. Nose is heavy butterscotch, melons, vanilla, caramel, dank hops, lots of dessert character. Taste is similar with buttercream, caramel, butterscotch, sugary tropical melons. Palate is dense, sticky, oily. Definitely on the sweeter, dessert side of DIPA but no typical DIPA flaws like nutty astringency, tea leaf tannins, old candies, cheesecloth.
