3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Toronado Seattle. Pours hazy medium golden with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet light caramel malt; floral fruity hops on the back with notes of mango and passionfruit. Taste is assertive medium caramel malt; hops are dank, lightly earthy, substantial floral undertones with light citrus notes throughout. Clean finish with faint lingering bitterness. Not quite as good as Big Swell, but solid IIPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Maui Brewing in Kihei.
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), moderately hoppy (marijuana, grapefruit, melon, resin).
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.
Medium to full body, watery/velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
Fairly similar to the Mosaic Mo Betta, although this is a bit more west coasty in the hop aroma. Somehow MBC gets a fair amount of weed odor from their hop treatment; most of their draft pale ales / IPAs have it.

Draft… Pours hazy and golden with orange highlights and a large, white head. The aroma features an assortment of tropical, stone and citrus fruits with an undercurrent of gooey caramel. Full-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor is fruity, boozy and malty. Well-balanced and bittersweet overall. Finishes hot with lingering ethanol and resiny bitterness.

Big DIPA! Lots of tropical fruity, syrupy sweet notes of mango, pineapple, guava. Heavy aroma of fruit, light pine, caramel and honey. Sweet and sweltering with a bulge of bitterness on the finish. Big and boisterous but a nicely done DIPA!

pretty fantastic juicy big bodied double IPA. Description is pretty spot on with the fruits, and it’s a little dank, bitter, and sweet. Good stuff.
