Growler thanks to Treebute! Clear gold pour with a small bubbly head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma is an explosion of tropical fruit and citrus including mango, grapefruit, mandarin orange, light pineapple, burnt sugar, and light pine. A nice moderate dankness over it all as well. Taste has a light sweetness throughout. The dank hops hit first which is countered nicely by the sweetness. The back end is a bunch of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Long after the finish I eventually get pine and a lingering sweetness. Medium body. Solid mouthfeel, slightly oily, carb still pretty high from the growler and it stings a bit. Great DIPA. I was trying to figure out what beer this reminds me of and then I read tectactoeís review. This is Kuhnhenn DRIPA but without the rice. I might have to trade for this again in the future.

From notes. This was shared at a tasting put on by @mikem409 on November 7. From a Growler. Oh man. This is great. The pour is a foggy golden orangey color with a nice tall white head that falls to a filmy cap, leaving some beautiful lace all around. The aroma is great. A beautiful citrus explosion. Orange, grapefruit, with a little mango and pineapple. There is a movement to a nice tropical floral hop blast thatís just great. The flavor is much of the same. Thereís a strong orange and grapefruit with a little bit of triple sec actually. Itís a little boozy for what I was expecting, but still really good. There is a good hop and a strong resin on the back end. The mouth feel is great. Thinner, but clings to the mouth, with an excellent carbonation. The aftertaste is really citrusy, before moving through a solid hoppiness and into a lingeringly dry bitterness. Great

Growler. Pours murky burnt orange with a thin white head that dissipates. Great pine-grapefruit arose over mild carbonation. Solid DIPA with above average complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wowsers! Growler shared by Dave. Aroma is lovely with grapefruit, orange rind, and the slightest hint of pine resin. Pours golden orange and clear with nice bubbles and a small sticky head. Taste follows suit with orange rind, grapefruit, almost a boozy tripel sec, apricot, and resin. Great full body and lingering tropical fruit and bitter hop taste. This is one for the books. ISO to share.

Pailhead (5061) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Growler: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, grapefruit, dank notes, and faint grass. It pours dull transparent golden-orange with a small white head. The flavor starts with moderate citrus and lighter tropical fruits. The finish has moderate grapefruit, light dank hops, and a touch of pine. Itís light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a super refreshing and drinkable IIPA.

Tap: Thanks to whomever brought the half barrel to Darkness Day... Righteous maneuver. Golden body, slightly cloudy with a nice, soapy white foam that forms slowly on top. Aroma of lovely, sticky citrus, grapefruit, orange & it transitions into more tropical notes towards the back-end; mango, light pineapple rind, all coated with a nice, slightly caramelized sugar glaze. Oily, dense pine & mild resin. Reminds me of Kuhnhennís DRIPA in many ways. Same for the flavor. A little bit of spicy hop up front; moderately herbal with a peppery note as you get instantly flung into a sea of sticky wet citrus & tropical fruits, mango, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, crystal malts, hemp oil, resinous pine needles, as things wrap up into a mostly dry finish. Light stickiness left behind. A great DIPA, I went back for many refills of this one.

Growler pours clear yellow with low head. Aroma is really nice tropical and pine notes. Taste is similar with a pale dry and bitter finish, very nice, buzz good

On tap at Roziís in Lakewood. Pour is medium straw in color, clear, with a fluffy thick white head. Aromas of resinous hops and pine. Taste is more dank resins and piney-citrusy hops. Finishes bitter but has a sweet balance that sneaks in there. I have had this many times and it seems to get better. Really a must try if you love hops. Ohio is on the charts with our IPAs.

10oz on tap at House Beer in Columbus. Totally hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker sheets of lace. Fantastic big hoppy assertive aroma up front. Good grapefruity piney hop. Lightly peppery. Hint of caramel malt. Bigger body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light to moderate sweet. Minimal hint of alcohol. Pretty awesome, satisfying DIPA.

Fresh growler, less than a week old. Been ~3 years since I tried this one! Fluffy white head & lace sit atop the handsome golden body.

Huge aroma of fresh, juicy, somewhat earthy hops and malt. Dat dankness. More bitter than expected on the palate, yet the hefty malt base rounds things out. A touch too bitter for my preference, but damn, this is an impressively-brewed DIPA. Dig.
