2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark orange to copper colour, medium carbonation, thin head which gone in 10-15 sec. Aroma of nothing specific, presence of alcohol tough and unpleasent. Flavor for an DIPA is very bad. Alcohol, alcohol an nothing else.
Afteertaste is bitter but harsh bitter. Not a good stuff I’m afraid.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy to cloudy brown color, small white head which disappeared quickly. Biscuity aroma, a bit boozy. Taste is pleasantly hoppy, medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Boozy yet refreshing.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Surprised by the "low" ratings on this one. Glad I finally tried it. Pour is clear, golden-amber with thin, clingy top. Aroma is other-worldly, one of the most fantastic smells I’ve encountered - bready malt with wild berry and citrus. I spent most of my time with this thing with my nose in the glass! Flavor has malty start, a nice bitter bite in the middle, finishing pretty clean with a nice semi-sweet linger. Good stuff, this!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Green Growler. Average looking pour. The rich, sweet aroma is the star of this show. Unfortunately the flavor lags behind - dry with dashes of grapefruit, pine, & yeast. A solid brew but not a first rate imperial.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
One glance at the bottle and....I am not sure really, it looks classy and greasy all at the same time. What lurks inside is a fantastic brewski, why it isn’t rated higher for style I am not sure? Is the SRM off? Is it too sweet? Whatever, style bitchiness aside this is a pretty fuckin’ tight ale. Barreling off of a dark copper body come audacious aromas of peach, tangerine, sweet grapefruit, pineapple, honey and some wee vinous hints. T’is a big, bold fruity IPA , headed up by off-white foam. It is pretty much on the sweet side but enough grapefruit zing saunters in late, managing to hold this tropical train on it’s tracks. With a full mouthfeel and a fine lingering lusciousness consisting of sweet and citrus fruit, this booze-hiding big’gun is very much a tasty pour.
