3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle, clear yellow pour with creamy white smallish head, smells of mango citrus and sugary sweet, medium body but a bit syrupy, tiny faint carbonation, tastes same as smell, the rice actually does do nice to bring out the hop characteristics yet not bitter, bought per a referral, don’t typically like Flying Fish, not sure if this really is a DIPA but this was pretty good, would say satisfying, not a house beer as to much like candy

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a semi clear light yellow pale golden color. Nose is citrus with predominant apricot and mango, with papaya as well. Taste is full of flavor with tropical fruits, and pine. Very drinkable despite the ABV, and enough sweetness not to make it cloying. Finish is bitter sweet with some slight lingers. Drinks like a tropical fruit punch. Nice , Quaff Score 7 / 10

Great mango and citrus on the nose. Tastes as clean as it looks. Goes well with Thai food, but could be nice as a summer supper as well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy honey-colored pour with a fine white head. Decent amount of lacing.
Nose is caramel malt and citrusy hops. Candied grapefruit is what comes to mind.
Flavor is dominated by the hops. The dry finish from the rice really lets them shine. Almost like eating a grapefruit, down to the bitter aftertaste. There is enough of a caramel malt backbone to this one to keep things balanced though.
Medium full mouthfeel.
A very tasty DIPA. the alcohol is well hidden by the excellent balance of malty and hoppy goodness. I'm also pleased that Flying Fish is selling these as six packs. I get tired of brewers selling four packs of their higher gravity offering at ridiculous price points. I might be paying a little more for this one, biut at least I get six of them.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop aromas of grain, grapefruit and lemon, light soap for the yeast, with hints of pineapple and white pepper. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, white, with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is light yellow/amber. Palate is faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation and finishes lightly alcoholic. Nice DIPA aromas but a little flat on DIPA flavors. Still a really nice drinking beer with grapefruity hops

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capone’s, Norristown sixer: Pours amber with a whitish head. Aroma is citrus, with a bunch of peach, and some other fruits. Taste is bitter and very fruity. I don’t really know where the rice is coming from or what it is doing, but mostly this is just a complex, but easy drinking DIPA that has very flavorful hops and a nicely balanced malt backbone.
