3.71/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22 oz. bottle with no freshness date consumed on: October 17, 2013. Bottle says, "70 ibu".

A- Pours a very cloudy, translucent dark copper with a tall, foamy, off-white head. Good retention with thick lacing.

S- Mostly hops in the nose. Very fresh, fruity hops aroma with some sweetness.

T- Solid malt backbone up front that slowly gives way to a bitter citrus flavor. A good amount of grapefruit in there and some pine resin as well. Good lasting hops flavors and bitterness without it becoming unpleasantly bitter.

M- Strange mouthfeel unlike any other IPA I've ever had. Not necessarily in a negative or positive way. It is full, resinous, and almost gelatinous; but it doesn't feel quite homogenous on my palate. It has different textures simultaneously. It is interesting and different, but not necessarily what I want in an IPA. However, it doesn't detract from the experience, and deserves a 4(outstanding) rating simply because its uniqueness stands out. Oh yeah, medium carbonation.

O- As it warmed, the sweetness in the nose intensified, and the bitterness bit down harder in an impressive balancing act. All in all, this tasty IPA hit the spot on rainy autumn night, and paired nicely with “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”.

3.75/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy golden brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, caramelized malts and piney hops.

T: The taste starts out with a decent burst of floral hops bitterness but it’s not over-powering. Then some sweet flavors of caramel and citrus come in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid IPA to drink for a while.

3.64/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Two finger head with some lasting time. Chunky spots for lace. Later it becomes a blanket of lace. Very cloudy, dark orange color. Light passes, but you cannot see through the glass.

Floral hop aroma. Light pale malt nose in the background. Pretty much as expected.

Pretty much a typical American IPA--Solid pale malt up front (there is some extra toastiness) and a biting bitter hop finish with a long aftertaste. Neutral body with barely elevated carbonation level. Overall, it's good but unremarkable--a safe IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a decent fizzy almost 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, lines of lacing, hazy amber orange-red color with a nice orange hue.

Nose brings nice hops, with a bit of citrus and grapefruit, some spicy earthy like hops too, nice tropical fruit with that bringing some mango, papaya, light citrus tangerine and orange zest, a sweet nectarine, very light musty resin and bit of dankness. With all that is a big sweet toasty copper malt, amber reddish malts, little caramel like, more like East meets West style IPA.

Taste comes sweet and malty at first, big copper malts, toasty amber reddish malts, light caramel toast, some sweetness too. Hops come in but more earthy spicy bitter, and quite bitter like a big DIPA style bitterness, earthy spicy hops, chewy hops even with a big astringent like chewy spicy hop character. The fruit is all gone basically, maybe a hint of a stone fruit like flavor but not really the tropical or citrus, but it does bring more dank resin and hint of cat piss. Finish is still quite bitter, the sweet malty balance that kept the bitterness from going too rampant is all but gone and it gets very bitter, salty astringent bitterness, lingering for a while, with spicy hops, chewy hops, and a touch of coppery malts lingering.

Mouth is med to a bit fuller bod, nice fluffy carb.

Overall mixed, the nose was nice, good tropical fruit hops, citrus, resin, aromatic, nice balance, etc. Then the flavor just ran off in the other direction, big malty sweetness, big spicy chewy earthy resinous hops that balance for a bit but then just become bimodal. Not bad but not as great as it started out to be.
