Pale golden color. Light head. Nice tropical hop aroma. Medium light bitterness. Average carbonation. Pineapple. Notes. Good. Didn’t notice the rice making much of a difference.

Golden pour with a white head. Aromas of citrus peel and pine hops. Flavor is very dry all around. I can see what they were going for here with the rice to showcase the hop character but it loses a lot of complexity from the lack of malt. It just comes across as very dry with some hoppy notes. Interesting concept though and I’m glad I got to try it. Shoutout to Mikeq215 for hooking me up with a bottle, thanks man!

Bottle thanks to Blipp. Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain and biscuit with some grass and pine notes. Flavor has notes of rice and sweet grain with just a light hoppiness of grass and a hint of mango.

Interesting color... two parts urine, one part pickle juice... with a foamy white head. Aroma of piney citrus hops... with an almost briny effervescence. Tastes of fairly intense, clean hops. Typical strong IPA mouthfeel. Good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Received on a trade from mikeq215:
Pours a nice bright clear yellow blonde.
3" white pillowy head (with fairly gentle pour).
Aroma of orchard fruits: grapes and apples stand out.
Tastes pretty much as it smells.
A sweet ipa without a lingering finish.
I would drink this again if the opportunity presents itself.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. Pours an ultra clear light orange color with a small foamy head that lingers nicely. Aromas are pineapple, mango, citrus and pine with some nice sweet malt too. Taste starts off malty sweet and finishes with lots of fresh hops. Light bitterness, especially for a DIPA, which gives this beer more of a pilsener feel but with some nice juicy hops. Very unique and very good.

Pour on tap, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought big orange peel, orange, grapefruit and other citrus, hints of nice floral and grassy notes as well, touch of caramel come through as well. Taste is a mix of grapefruit, orange, lemon into some grass, floral and herbal notes, hints of caramel, spice and yeast, finishing bitter. Decent.

Draft. Pours perfectly clear gold with a thin white head. Taste like smooth grapefruit and pine. Very light and smooth. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells like citrus and pine hops, slightly creamy and nutty.

Double IPA that gives Pliny the Elder a serious run for its money. Super smooth. Light. Extraordinarily drinkable. One of my favorites.
