On tap at Dangerous Man. Aroma is delicious juicy citrus and tropical fruit. Flavour is really nice fresh fruit, flavourful but not too bitter. Well balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, pale malts. A rather nondescript aroma. Flavor of caramel malt, bitter hops, floral hops. A somewhat bland IPA...not that it is bad, just nothing sticks out about it. Somewhat malty for an IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear and clean orange pour. Butterscotch and orange cream candies in a sticky nose. Fresh baked bread and crystal notes characterize a prototypical overly sweet malt foundation. The electric, tropical fruit notes and the fragrant greenery are flimsily present beneath all this.
Pine aerosol and orange candy flavor, rather straight and narrow. A honey like floral tone is sticky and messy, but it serves to co-opt the butterscotch impression of the nose. Sourish, yuzu and overripe tangerine fruit flavors, and sticky toffee.
This is the fourth less than ideally carbonated beer from this establishment. It’s impossible to not speculate that they’re rushing beers to meet demand. The slick, rather heavy texture makes the persistent buttery coloring all the more noticeable. Again, throughout this feels like a rushed offering to me, which is an issue this able brewer should be above.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
10 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom. Consumed on 4-22-14. Labeled as 7.0% ABV and 66 IBU. Pours a mostly clear, perhaps slightly hazy orange-ish amber with a moderate amount of long-lasting, cream to beige head. Looks good and appetizing. Weaker aroma than I would prefer features cream and orange scents. Fresh smell. Nice, dry, piney taste. Lemon, minerals, and dirt flavors. There is a light floral note that becomes apparent upon multiple sips. Dry, tonic / soda / mineral water aftertaste that reminds me of green grape seeds. Medium to full body (full bodied for the style). Lively in the palate. Easy to drink; drinkable, tasty, and refreshing. Really good taste and mouthfeel. Clearly fresh. If it were more aromatic it would be a virtually perfect IPA. A very good effort from Dangerous Man.

On tap fresh from the taproom served in a tulip. One gets the feeling they’re always tweaking the recipe on their IPA. This one had just been re-released according to my beer-tender. Featuring Chinook hops I was very impressed with this version, but this was also my first visit to Dangerous Man. A beautiful light orange-amber and hazy this is a solid IPA. The hops are omnipresent with a nice light toasty malt for balance. Very citrus and crisp bitterness throughout the taste. An outstanding mouthfeel and finish. The quality and value are unbeatable in my estimation and the sheer freshness of this IPA makes it a go to. Have one in the taproom and then grab a growler
