A big, joyous celebration of all things hoppy (5 different varities). Large flavors and aroma of pine, citrus, flowers, spice, pineapple, and grassiness complimented with a touch of biscuit and caramel backbone. Our most requested beer.

Suttree (5879) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 7, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2012 In the south, if you are dating a girl and she tells you she’s a snake handler, be careful. It’s not a euphemism. At any rate, this leans toward the sweeter side of the DIPA equation, with a lot of slick caramel and toffee and a big hit of piney hops. Odd but not unpleasant medicinal note, too. Definitely warrants further investigation...

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2012
12oz canned Jan 23, 2012. Super fresh. Served at around 45F.

Pours lightly hazy orange with a good light tan head that leaves pretty lacing and holds a good cap.

Aroma features tons of citrus hops, particularly orange and tangerine, but also some grapefruit, apricot, floral hops, hints of grass and pine with a good caramel malt presence that plays nicely with the hops.

Flavor also features tons of orange and tangerine citrus with more grapefruit than the nose, resinous hops, a little pine, good caramel malt backbone offering a bit of sweetness to combat the good bitterness on the finish. A bit of alcohol detected, but not bad at all for over 9%.

Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied, creamy, a bit sticky with nice carbonation.

Really impressive stuff. Very juicy DIPA, very drinkable. Quite a treat!

Draft at mellow mushroom south. Pours light orange with a slight white head. Not much going on with the nose which is a bit of a disappointment. Slight hints of pine sol on the tongue with some bitterness on the finish but they both seemed subdued. The alcohol is well disguised but there are much better examples out there of the style.

Growler consumed same day. Amber color, massive beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of pure pine. Taste is very bitter pine resin. Rough trade!

A couple 4 oz. pours into a taster glass. 4.0 A: Clear medium orange. About half a finger of creamy, white head. Retention is average with just a touch of lacing. 4.0 S: Mix of citrusy, spicy, and piney hops. Grapefruit, lots of pineapple, some mango, and orange. Malts offer a fairly strong caramel aroma with biscuity malts overall. Nice. 4.0 T: Same fruitiness as listed in the nose, though surprisingly a lot more intense. Malts offer a good bit of caramel and a strong biscuity vibe. Good taste, but too biscuity for me. Light sugary flavor. Moderate bitterness. 3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation, especially for a growler. A bit chewy and could be creamier. 3.5 D: Good beer despite being overly biscuity. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 07-17-2011 19:48:30

Cask at El Rey. Pours amber with thick, white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, and floral hops. Taste of tangerines, grapefruit, and resiny hops. Like hop oil. Creamy mouthfeel. Sweet. Impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Pint at the J Clyde. Ugly brown/orange color. Hazy with an ugly head. Aroma is pine like hops. Hop forward with plenty of pine. It’s held up well a good Malty backbone that’s got a touch of toffee to it. Finishes fairly dry. Full bodied brew. Not bad.

GTAEgeek (1787) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2011
On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a hazy, bright orange with a medium beige head. The aroma is strong citrus and pine hops, with a bit of grain and malt behind. The flavor is very bitter throughout, with little malt balance. The palate is medium to heavy, astringent and acidic, and leaves a long bitter aftertaste. Overall, this is a better and more complex version of the Good People IPA, with all the abruptness of a west coast IPA.

Growler from Liquor Express. Poured a hazy orange with a creamy off-white head that left good lacing. Floral aroma with a caramel backing. The flavor was flipped with mainly caramel and floral backing. Medium body, creamy and a mild bitterness.
