Issue a small craft advisory: this South Bay Bessie-inspired brew unleashes a beastly hop attack amid torrid tropical flavors.

Nice Amber color with a small white head. Strong aroma of hops with a sweet tropical fruit scent. Fruity flavor in the mouth that turns bitter and somewhat harsh at the back of the throat. I really liked the smell and the initial taste but not a fan of the bitterness and unpleasant burn in the throat.

Pours a dark but clear rust orange. Has a strong fruit and citrus hop aroma. Taste is also really strong with fruit malts, citrus hops, caramel, and pine. A medium body with a lingering bitter hop and dry fruit malt aftertaste.

Aroma mainly mild citrus with some slight pine. Deep golden color with a hint of amber. Dense head, fair retention, good lacing. Sweet start to this beer with a slight bitterness in finish. Balance seemed a bit off, a bit on the sweet side for an IPA. Medium body, light carbonation, long dry finish. Great looking beer that just seems a bit off overall.

Tap @ Winking Lizard: I had high expectations for this one. It didn’t meet them. Sweeter than most 2 IPAs. Sweet hop aroma with a musty furniture polish flavor. Unfortunately, I had Three Floyd’s Permanent Funeral the day before. So, this doesn’t even hold a candle to it.

From a bottle, nice anger color with an off white head. Very fragrant aroma, citrus, Pitney with some malt. Flavor was very well balanced and mild considering the ABV! This is one great beer.

Nothing subpar bout this Double IPA in my book. It tastes to me just wonderful. Very typical and fully sufficient in hops, malt and high gravity characteristics requisite to this style. This is a terrific bier that compares with all of my favorite Imperial or Double IPAs

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 7-20-15. Labeled “10/4/15.” Pours a clear, effervescent, dark bronze with a moderate amount of golden beige head. Nice color. Good, long-lasting lacing. Light but pleasant, floral aroma. Cereal grains and a surprising element of German beer in the nose. The smell is too weak. Quite sweet flavor, both in terms of a golden apple maltiness and a fruity hoppiness. Not my favorite set of flavors from the hops. Remarkably bitter-dry finish. Borderline astringent aftertaste that I find unpleasant. Medium to full body. Soft and smooth in the palate. Filling and a challenge to drink. Too sweet and floral for my tastes combined with subpar palate effects and low drinkability. One of the lesser Double IPAs I’ve encountered, and that surprises me as it sources from a good brewery.

A walloping DIPA with lots of grapefruit and orange and aggressive hops. Plenty of backing malt, and a light caramel tinge to the finish. Finally, it looks tremendous in the glass, with a glowing amber orange hue that promises richness and depth and delivers.
