On tap@O’Brien’s: Hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is light and fruity. Flavor starts sweet and fruity with pineapple and mandarin orange with a tangy dry citrus rind finish. Light to medium bodied and smooth with moderate carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. have not had this for a couple of years and I do not like it as much as i used to. The hop aroma is a little muted for a DIPA, and there is moderate caramel malt. Dark, hazy orange with a full white head. Flavor follows through with dank, moderate bitterness and slight citrus.

Light gold pour
Nice hoppy aroma of spruce and citrus, and flavor is just as big and hop forward, with citrus notes. Another great IPA from BR

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright medium orange with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, tropical fruits (mainly pineapple), caramel, grassy hops and some light dank hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma but also has more sweet malts and some green onion flavor. Has a medium-full body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a slightly dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty DIPA that might a tad too malty for my tastes.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Tap @ Capital Ale Downtown. I may have found a new favorite. I always like their Racer 5. Clean big hops + long hop finish. Perfumey stuff comes up as it warms. Like Ruination, my current favorite. I think I’ll have to have them side by side- more than once- just to be sure...

Growler from Grapevine. Good DIPA, though not exactly what I expected from the west coast. Pretty well balanced and not totally loaded with hop aroma and flavor, and nicely bitter. Good beer, Nick and I had no trouble finishing that growler off.

650ml bottle pours a pale amber color without much head. Full hop flavor but easy going. Mild bitterness lingering at the end.
