3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle. A hazy pale-copper pour with a smallish off-white head. Pleasant aroma that features plenty of pineapples, mangoes, oranges, grapefruits, pine, and floral qualities. Medium body. The taste starts out with some lightly sweet cereal graininess and the slightest touch of caramel. A hint of wheat and starchy bread in the middle. Juicy finish with loads of the aforementioned sweet tropical citrus fruits. Very drying at the end. Quite enjoyable. I could drink this one all night.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a larger sized white head. Aromas of tropical fruits, pine, floral, and juicy citrus. Tastes of the same tropical fruitiness/pineapples, citrus, some rice (or is that implanted in my mind from the name?) , and pine. I’m really enjoying this one...

Hazy orange with a dense white head. Aroma is ambrosial citrus and guava with a piny edge, and the suggestion of fruity sweetness. Taste is the same with a slight pithy bite, and fruits into the finish $8/750ml

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Extremely good stuff here. Golden amber color with a rocky white head that laces nicely. Intense pine and citrus aroma right from the bottle and then with each sip. Taste has a bit of sweetness up front and then more hops. Very nice after taste that stays with you a while. Finish is very very dry.

perfect representation of the diverse population at my lifelong turnpike stop....in beer. tropical flavors this brew is hoppy with citrus and sweet. in your face gritty and powerful enough hop bite. enough alcohol to count but tempered enough toward refinement. bright looking but unpretensious. different flavors that have been worked togeather well.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle at The Abbey in Philly. Citrus bigtime on the nose and initial palate shot but with a bigtime piney backend. More carbonated than most IPA’s, golden, almost belgian appearance with some lacing that slides down all sultry, like a neglige in a honeymoon suite. Hides the 9.5% ABV very well, better than most at that level. You can taste a bit of booze, but still leaves something to the imagination...just shows ya a little leg. Exit 16E is kinda like the Elder, the Younger, Stone and Mongo got together and had a baby. My wife took one sip after hearing me rave about it and put it succinctly: "Whore piss...its like a whore pissed in my mouth." Well, make mine a double.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Capones. Pours a light hazy golden with a medium bubbly/creamy white head. Aroma of piney, tropical fruits and citrus hops, some light malt notes. To be honest the malt aroma was very low but the hop aroma was very nice (appropriate for the style). Flavor was also very hop forward with more of the pine, mixed citrus and tropical fruits coming through. REally like the hop flavor profile and overall this was a very dry DIPA. At 9.5% abv was totally hidden. Reminds me of a nice and dry, well done West Coast Style Double IPA. Way to go Flying Fish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle shared by Pineypower thanks Dean. Poured lighter then I was expecting for a DIPA with a light gold body sitting underneath an ample bright white foamy head. Aroma has a nice initial burst of piney resin then some tropical fruits, apricot and tangerine kick in. As this beers warms the piney notes fade to the background and the fruity aromas dominate. Fuller bodied with average carbonation and a suprisingly light bitter finish. The flavor isn’t as great as the aroma but still very nice....notes of bitter hop flowers, citrus, apricot and grains. Yet another winner from the Flying Fish exit series, 3 for 4 not to shabby.
