4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright, opaque, orange, apricot color with a finger length white head that goes away slowly and leaves a blanket of thick lacing. Good amount of carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of wonderful, juicy tropical fruits like mango, papaya, guava, pineapple, orange, some pine, floral, grass, small amount of grain. Resinous, yet sweet smelling. Taste starts with lots of hop qualities as expected: resinous pine, orange, mango, papaya. Sweet even in the beginning. May of added some dextrose sugar. The the middle brings a modest malt backbone. More than I detected in the taste. A light biscuity note, as well as some sweet carmel and grain. The finish does an excellent job of showing off the hop qualities, yet still staying pretty balanced. Lots of tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, papaya, as well as resinous grass, pine, floral notes. Tastes a lot like different flavored gummi worms. Little hint of alcohol. Full body with a creamy and sticky mouthfeel. The sweetness throughout really helps to cut the bitterness and balance the beer. A really solid double ipa.

Chappy's, Dayton, OH, draft. First impression was soap. Dark yellow and cloudy. Very hoppy, lasts forever on the palate. Hop concentration. It's good.

Straight away this hits with a really bitter nose, but I'm excited, and starting to feel thirsty. That bitterness is lightly coated with some fruitier flavours, but let's get in.
A mild carbonation brings with it a savoury spice, which gives no regard to any fruit you might be thinking. Until. That classic cascade comes around and taps you in the shoulder, pretty classic citrus and sweeter notes. Stone, and peat are quite prominent on the vapour left floating in your mouth, giving oaky or scotchy elements- fuck yes.
It's pretty kickass, it's pretty rocking, it's pretty damn good. Probably my favourite multi-hop brew for a while, usually they blur into madness, but this highlights the key points of each and makes as a good friend would say "One tasty beverage".

Fruity IPA. Sweet hints with fresh hops. Nice IPA but too malty fruity for my buds.

Poured from the bomber smells like fresh hops. Taste is chunky and hoppy (which I think were the 2 cops on sandford and son). Deschutes always does a good job with the fresh hop style, all of their beer I’ve tried taste similar, but with different characteristics. This one is strong but if not for the buzz I wouldn’t have been able to tell. Fresh squeezed on steroids, and steroids is good. You keep making beer in this style and I’ll keep buying them.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thin head on a hazy medium straw body.
The aroma is a big blend of citrus (all of them) plus some pine.
The taste is bold and complex. Moderate bitterness throughout held up by a big malt.
The texture is thick.

Really nice!! Pours slightly hazy light orange with lots of foamy head that sticks around and tons of lacing. Lots of sweet citrus nose. Flavours are pineapple, peach, grapefruit, some sweet syrup. Taste medium/big bitter med/sweet. Full body, somewhat creamy with an aggressive bitter finish. Alcohol is there, but reasonably well hidden.

Bomber. Melon and grapefruit citrus hop aroma with pine resiny notes. Pours hazy golden colored with a large soapy white head and some lacing. Starts with tropical fruit flavors with subtle grapefruit citrus. Finishes dry with more of the sweet tropical fruit and slight pine resiny flavors. Nice IPA.

Great imperial IPA, plenty of balanced hops, grapefruit, and pine flavours to it. 9.5% ABV is well hidden, with a great, not too bitter finish.
