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

libertine (405) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2015
pours an orange amber with a thin white head that vanishes quickly. Aroma is slightly dank. Notes of apricot and tropical fruits. Taste is a little sweet. Apricot, mango, pineapple and a little peppery spice. Medium/full bodied with a oily/sticky texture. lasting bitterness in the finish. Perhaps a little sweet but a nice Imperial IPA. The tropical flavors are a highlight in this beer.

MaltOne (315) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2015
On tap @ Silver Creek. Pours a clear gold with an orange tinge, moderate white foamy head. Skucbt citrus aroma. Flavor has pronounced mellow orange first impact, balancing out with a nice malt framework and slightly dry finish. Palate has some nice body. Overall a very good DIPA though not as complex as some.

TattooJack (509) - Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Poured from the 4-pack of bottles, looks orange with brown highlights. Hops, tropical hops, citrus hops, creamy, with sticky resin on the back end. Nice and strong, more character appears with every drink, a sample would not do this beer justice should drink multiple beers to appreciate.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste tropical fruit, sweet. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (7612) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Lots of citrus and some mash malt in here but has a weird aftertaste. Too much mash malt tanginess. Pours orange with ok head and lacing. Bottle.

Tap @ Sienna Mercato roof top. Caramel with cream head and nice lacing. Smells a little like caramel and a little like lemon- not getting a good bouquet, may be a little cold.Sweet then bitter. Dry.

Bottle. Medium amber. Thick head. Hoppy initial aroma but not my favorite scent. For the ABV, relatively smooth. Balanced malt nd hop taste. Not my favorite hop variety but not bad. Couldn’t drink alot of these in a row. Bottom line, just not a hop variety that I enjoy but a solid beer
