Sample pour from bottle. Pours a clear orange/amber color with small bubbly white head. Aroma is malty with citrus. Flavor starts malty and sweet with caramel hints then turns into grapefruit, lemon, and maybe some tropical fruit in there too. Medium to full body, thinner texture, average carbonation. Bitter finish creeps in. Solid.

Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with minimal lacy off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big tropical fruit and melon from the hops with a nice caramel malt and biscuit back end. Taste is less of the tropical and more of the melon, but malt kind of over powers everything. Booze is big, but of astringency, solid double DIPA.

Sample at first sunday. Judging by other reviews I wonder if this was not a little old. Closer to a barleywine with muted hop flavors but lots of sweet caramel malt and toffee working. A little bit of grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Some body send me some fresh!

Bottle thanks to woodchopper on BA! Clear orange pour, a little carbonation and an aroma of hoppy melons. Flavor is more nice melon, good blend of hops and just enough malt to keep it balanced. Finish was perfect with just a little white grape and peaches. Really enjoyable.

Growler pour at my house in myrtle beach. Peachy, mango flavors dominate with a note of dank earthy flavor. Extremely hoppy and slightly boozy. Pours copper in color with a thin tan head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from a trade. Nice golden amber pour with some hazy and a thick head. Shared with Danni at the Pig. Tulip was nice and laced. The aroma was citrus and pine with some breadiness and sweet roll. The taste was at first hop forward with citrus and pine notes, then transitions into a malty sweetness that is heavy grains and cereal. Nice overall flavors and balance. Medium body, solid carb. Finish is grains, sweet malts, and hops.

Growler share thanks to Homer. Pours golden orange white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, not in your face. Taste is a bit danky, mouthfeel is a bit wierd to me, not sure what it is. Bitterness sticks with you a bit.

Draft at brewery. Nose is slightly muted in terms of hops for a double ipa. Slightly citrus with a hint of danky earthiness. Pours very clear with a medium sized white head. Taste is very hop forward with layers of different hops. Starts tropical then shows off some citrus orange, grapefruit and zest. Finishes with some earthy dankiness. Dry and quenching. Would like to see more hop aroma but very nice and no alcohol burn.

Draft at Coast. Hazy burnt orange pour with a fat white head with sheets of lace all the way down. Tangerine, mandarin oranges, kumquats and tons of tropical citrus in the aroma. Smooth sticky and dank hop flavor on the tongue with lingering bitterness through the finish. Damn tasty stuff.
