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

Had this poured from a 12oz. can at the Malted Barley in RI.

Appearance: Pours a golden amber orange brown color. A very careful pour did not generate any head but a few swirls brought out a bit of a cap.

Smell: Sharp sugars, some alcohol and *lots* of fruits in the nose. It makes me think on passion fruit and peaches.

Taste: Toasted sugars and fruity juicy flavors are pleasing but not as complex as the Middle Ages beer I had last night. There is a bit of orange oils, peachy juices and citrus hops (but not very bitter). The alcohol is very evident. I enjoy it but I think some people may find it quite boozy.

Mouthfeel: The texture is slick despite the sharp alcohol attribute.

Drinkability: This beer went down quite nicely but I would certainly *not* consider this an 'easy' or a sessionable beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into DH IPA glass.

A: Orange golden hue. Pours a 2 finger, tight, frothy white head. Settles slowly leaving some residue behind as it does. Thick, persistent beer ring lacing.

S: Orange and lemon citrus, tropical fruit, and pine resin. A bit of a soapy distinction.

T: Biting hops accentuated with some orange liqueur, pine cone, some bitter nut shell, and a slight sweet resin.

M: Thick and syrupy fell. Hops attack the palate and linger. Bittersweet finish that seems a little off. Boozy.

D: Character will dictate a sipping experience.

Atmosphere is good. Frothy head, and thick persistent lacing. Citrus, tropical fruit, and pine make up the nose. Biting with some boozy orange, bitter nut, and pine resin (not enough to finish the balancing act though). Overall, this is a good quaff.

Got this one as a Christmas gift from Florida. From notes.

A - Poured mildly hazy and dark golden. Two fingers of fluffy white head on top. Good carbonation. Decent lace rings and a finger of retention.

S - Peach, boozy fruits, sugar.

T - Peach, citrus, booze. Not much complexity.

M - Good carbonation, medium body, peachy bitterness to finish with some alcohol.

O/D - Nothing too interesting. Could be older than you'd want in a DIPA. Not too much hop depth at all and fairly restrained. Avoid it if you're a fan of the style.
