4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy goldish amber. What a delicious aroma - spicy, citrusy, the beach. Lively. Flavor intensely citrus, lime and orange, bitterness almost perfectly balanced although I don’t mind it slightly off center. I just love the smell - woodsy more than piney, and maybe it’s just sentimental, but it smells like ... New Jersey, and not the part you’re thinking. The pine barrens, the shore. This should have been a Parkway Exit 0 release or something. Nice lacing. It’s a little thinner than I’d like. Flying Fish is really setting new standards with the Exit series. Exit 4 is excellent, Exit 1 was quite good and now Exit 16 - these are all better than anything they’ve done before IMO.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to swalden28 (with the assist from ericandersnavy). Pours with a small white head and a hazy golden body. Aroma is hoppy, bitter, citrus and dank. Taste is bitter and pine. Not much balance, and not a super interesting hop profile from the citra (the other c-hop dominates). Medium carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Capone’s. Pours an almost clear yellow gold with a thin creamy white head. Big clean pine with a light citrus background and a nice subtle caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied with a lot of hop presence. Big and earthy. Finishes up with a long lingering tannic grapefruit bitterness. Nice.

Bought this 750 for me and james. had a nice hazy orangey gold pour. Moderate white head that lasted for a little bit. Aroma was sweet and full of hops and some fruits. Flavor was hops, bitter, with after taste of citrus and sweetness. Nice on the palate.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Shared with Ryan before clash of titans. This beer was awesome. Delicious grapefruit, mango, and pine taste.. Commericial description is spot on. Mouthfeel was juicey and bubbly. Such a great dipa, probably one of the least astrigent and bitter too... A totally different approach on this badass style. Get this now.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a great beer. You could taste the sweetness of the rice through it all, and it was quite enjoyable. It was kind of a balance or off-setting flavor for the hops. Definitely has some floral, fruity notes like an (d)IPA should but that rice made it different for me, and different in a good way.
It poured without much fanfare though and the aroma wasn’t as strong as some can be, but there was definitely that sweetness to its aroma as well.
