Tap at Urge. Rating #187. Muddy light brown pour with a great fluffy white head. Great aroma, light sweet fruits with a nice malt backbone. Flavor was similar, lots of fruitiness, mango, pineapple and grapefruit, really nice. (1762)

I really liked this beer. I had it out of the tap. It had strong hop bitterness yet easy to drink

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at ACBF. Hazy copper pour with a small head. Aroma and flavor were both fairly subtle for a DIPA, with notes of orange zest, ruby red grapefruit, and sweet honey malt notes. Thinnish palate. One of the more disappointing beers I tried at the fest.

Sampled at The Stable’s Beer Lover’s Anonymous. Lightly hazy golden. Small white head is soapy. Subtle and very nice. Not over the top hops with soft pine and fruit with floral notes. Very light caramel. An understated beer and definitely a nice one.

Nose is relatively light and dead for an IIPA. Moderately sweet taste, moderately bitter, nice fruity citrus, grapefruit and apricots, lots of cotton candy and honey. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy hop and small malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a good bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very good brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Broadway. Nice hoppy Double IPA with some nice tones of grapefruit and citrus. Well done and ABV feels like it’s high, but not overpowering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at PB TapRoom. Pours a dark copper color. Mild aroma. Hops dominate the front and mid palate along with a note of cream and red apple skins on the finish. Nice, but I wasn’t a fan of the sweetness.
