Tap at Grumpy Troll. Unfiltered orange-brown. Half a beer dumped down the drain to get a pint. Steady creamy off-white head. Pronounced orange-citrus aroma. Creamy, almost nitro feel after the pour. Oily, classic IIPA tones in lot of respects, just about ten years late for this one to be impressive. Quite a beastly, decent offering.

Draft sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Boozy with pine and citrus. Just a hint of tropical fruits too. Pretty good.

Bottle, thanks to Wrye! Rad DIPA tick! Pours a big orange/deep golden with small white head. Aroma is boozy dank pineapple and mango. Some orange peel. Taste is a little too faded hop with the boozy malt coming in to rest. Sweet and I can tell it was once, I suspect, really nice on the citrus and mango thing. Overall, rather boozy but likely an extra .5 or so when fresh.

On draught at the brewery. For the hop lover to be sure. Aroma of pine and grapefruit, pours a nice amber color with ample head that dissipates quickly. Fairly viscous mouth feel. Wearing on the palate, but a very nice offering.
