Served from growler purchased from COAST into a Duvel tulip. Pours hazy brown-orange with a one finger whitish head. Maintains excellent lacing throughout. The aroma is comprised of tropical fruit, hops, and subtle malt. The flavor is of tropical fruit, slight malt, with a nice crisp hoppy followthrough. It has a medium feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this is an awesome brew from a local brewery. Really wish they would bottle this so it could be distributed more readily for other states. The tropical fruit up front are nicely balanced with the hop followthrough. The aroma is quite pleasant as well. All hop-heads must try this one at least once.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this growler. The beer pours a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma is pine and tropical fruit. The flavor is tropical fruit with some resiny and piney hops. There is also some caramel malt to keep the bitterness from being too high. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. A very nice, very fruity double IPA.

On tap. Poured cloudy orangish copper with a big white head. Nose is hoppy citrus, light malt - very hoppy. Taste is very hoppy and malt sweetness is there for some balance, not all that much considering the hops. Hops are very citrusy and fruity. Mouth is full and sticky. Overall, a decent ale.

A: The pour is a golden orange color with a nice white head on top. S: An intense citrus nose on this beer. Lots of juicy grapefruit notes with some orange and maybe a bit of pineapple as well. A very mild malt character. T: A sharp citrus kick up front featuring some fresh and juicy grapefruit flavors. The hops are slightly fruity but also some great piney bitterness, especially on the finish. M: The body is medium with a really crisp and refreshing finish and a great carbonation. D: A really easy to drink DIPA and one that is truly delicious as well. Iím pleased to have been able to try this one out.

Thanks to Alex for getting a growler of this stuff. Poured into Surly pint glass. A - Pours a grapefruit orange/pink color, very hazy, with a couple fingers of white head. This stuff is sticky, lots of lacing and a decent cap remains after the initial pour. S - More malty then hoppy on the nose mixed in with some floral notes. T - Decently bitter, a good amount of hops along with some sweetness. Some tropical fruit notes, citrus, and some nice malty notes. M - Light to medium, light carbonation, oily finish. D - A good DIPA, but not great. Drank an Exit 16 right after and it was much better then this one. Would drink again, but not going to go out on a limb to get it again.

Huge thanks to Brodie for sharing this one. Pours a hazy golden orange with a small soapy white head that recedes to a thin collar leaving spotty lacing. The nose is great on this one with a boatload of juicy sweet citrus hops - grapefruit, oranges, pineapples - with a complementary grassy character as well. The sweet caramel malts are there but definitely take a back seat. The taste is just as good and, again, dominated by citrus fruits in the form of pineapples and grapefruit. Itís really all about the hops with only enough malt to keep things balanced. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation but with a pleasant hop stickiness that lingers with mild bitterness through the finish. Well, this one exceeded expectations for me and is really in my wheelhouse as far as DIPAs go - big juicy citrus hop flavor without palate-crushing bitterness. An excellent beer and the best thing that COAST has produced as far as Iím concerned.
