On cask at flying saucer Houston. Pour is hazy chestnut ornage w a white head that dissipated to the edges. Nose is loads of uber deet hops. Cherries galore. Taste is thick sappy hops with a resin balanced by sweetness. Tasty and complex.

Draft @ Hopgeist 2014. Strawberry amber in color. Minimal head. Clear. Bready flavor that quickly mellows out to a smooth malty finish. Strong initial resiny flavor that is very fleeting.

Thick head, golden yellow color. Smells vegetal, savory, some musky bread character. Flavor is pine, toffee, bitter resin. Well-balanced complex flavor that sits between sweet and bitter.

Super tropical all around. In my opinion way better than Maharaja. Lots of tropical fruit juice, fresh grapefruit, and intense hop bitterness. Super clean and fresh. As it warms up the aroma and taste just get even better. Definitely recommend this one. cheers.

"large amounts of pine and sweet fruity malts in the aroma. body is big and sticky. taste is big too. bitter pine and a little candy sweetness as well. not as good as the amazing Maharaja, but pretty tasty and aromatic nonetheless."

Smells fruity and floral, big pour, very bitter, well hopped, really dry and powerful at the end, bitter aftertaste, if you like hops, this is a winner, all in all a very solid DIPA, definitely top tier but not elite in my book.
