Taste thanks to Chris!
Drank next to Masala Mama. Light orange-amber, transparent and with a thin white ring for a head. Dirty, herbal nose, then with warmth ample grapefruit and pine. Definitely IIPA when compared to the MM. Flavor is unfortunately confused: burnt toast, caramel, and imbalanced, stinging grapefruit. The flavor is more off-putting than the nose, but neither works that well.

Growler from CBX. Pours a cloudy copper with thick fluffy white head. Lots of grapefruit and floral aroma. Just the type of smells I’m looking for in an IPA. VERY smooth and refreshing. Where is the alcohol!? It is well hidden. Not as much of the grapefruit in the taste. Much more floral and grassy. Did I mention it is very smooth. The bitter bite on the back end is long and drawn out. Wow is all I got to say.

A-pours a hazy lighter copperish orange with a dense off white head. S-light malt base of caramel and brown sugar. the grapefruit and citrus are present accompanied by some spicy herbal hops and toasted grain with a slightly messy hop aroma. T-the hop flavors are a little messy, the malt is less present and the hops have a good hold here, the grapefruit is there in the back, toasted grain and little dry herbs with notes of pine come in at the back. M-grainy on the palate, medium syrupy body with a good carbonation and somewhat dry finish. D-this is tasty, lots of huge hype and doesn’t quite live up to the equal pliny claims. Solid hop flavors but seems a little rough around the edges. the feel is little grainy.

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.
