Tap @ Mekong shared with HopTsing. Golden orange with foamy head and ample lacing. A little perfumy and candy peachy but also grapefruity. Not as bitter as I usually like. Soft in mouth, light bitter finish.

I personally would not call it a DIPA but this really tastes good. The mixture of Citra and Meridian work well together. Definitely citrus forward and a strong with bitterness but it does not ruin the palate at all. Good carbonation too.

I was surprised how much I liked this. For a big company brew it has a lot to offer. Sweet summertime aroma that reminds of a mix of stone fruits (peaches and apricots) and the flavor has a nice mix of the same stone fruit flavors and hops. Finished a little weak but at least doesn’t have that died in your mouth aftertaste of some mass produced IPAs

Surprised I’m number ten on this one. Draft at Mekong. Medium amber, clear, great head. I was looking for something to destroy my palate after doing the tasting part of BJCP, and this did the trick fairly well. Aroma was pure hops, loads of grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit. Flavor was a match, with a good malt backbone to keep things together. Not as scrubbing with the hops as expected, the bitterness was in check. Well balanced. Very nice IIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Fair Lakes Whole Foods Market. Poured a mostly clear dark orange color with a foamy off-white head. Plenty of carbonation in this one on the edges of the glass. Aroma was plenty of hop notes, light sweet malts. Flavor was light citrus hops, pine and citra. Pretty tasty.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent copperish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells solid too; a balanced hop profile with a semi-sweet pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, light mouthfeel. Good beer.

Tap. Pours clear amber with creamy white head. Aroma is grassy and floral hops, biscuit and cereal malts, grapefruit, and light toffee. Flavor is hop bitterness throughout with some supporting dry malts and light fruit esters; dry, lightly bitter finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Global in Edwardsville. A clear and coppery beer. Minimal head. The aroma is vegetable and cat pee. All kinds of both in the flavor made this a little hard to enjoy. Some pine and citrus with caramel. Not for me.
