1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Nose, palate, and finish of "menthol and bandaids". NOT what I would expect from an IIPA.
Bottle from the brewery. Pours amber with a small off-white head leaving good lacing. Aroma of hop, caramel, citrus fruit, floral, light veg and malt. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Murky, light umber color with a smaller covering of big taupe bubbles. Lightly fruity aroma. Hints of fruit wine and floral hops. Earthy, fruity flavors with light strawberries and tart cranberries. Reminds me of a traditional old ale with a bit more hops. Finish gains some malt, but still a bit “off” with the tartness. 3/10 wlajwl (6814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 29, 2015
Aroma is fruit and sourness/tartness. The flavor is fruit, light citrus, malts, a hint of tropical fruit and a tart/mildly warming finish. Karstenborg (1077) - Hasselager, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2014

Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a murky brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of faint hops, light caramel and some grassy notes. Hops have faded a bit. Flavor is very thin, light bitterness and has low carbonation. Not the best IIPA. kermis (13482) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2014
