I bought a bottle of Third Voyage at a bottle shop, poured in to a tulip.

Pours a copper/bronze color, cloudy with a thick creamy beige head.

Smell is a sweet caramel candy aroma with a hint of citrus.

Taste is also a sweet caramel malt flavor up front, with a bitter pine flavor on the finish.

Mouthfeel is slightly cloying.

Overall not bad. Sweet and candy like. Decent.

Pours a clear dark copper with a half finger of head that quickly dissipates down to a thin film. The nose has hop notes, but malt is present as well. The body is relatively hearty for the style. The flavor profile is a really nice blend of malts and hops. This is a well-balanced, “East Coast” style DIPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A- pours a clear copper color with a two-finger foamy white head that retains nicely, leaving some lace behind

S- mix of piney, grassy and citrusy hops with a big malty sweetness & a hint of alcohol

T- citrusy grapefruit hop, pine sap, herbal notes, malty sweetness matches up to the hop flavor, underlying alcohol on the finish

M- medium body and carbonation, slightly boozy mouthfeel leads to a foamy, warming finish

O- As expected from a SA brew, this isn't an unbalanced hop bomb, there's a big maltiness to match up to the hops, which isn't a bad thing. It did seems bit boozy at times though
