COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

(22oz bottle from jcnd9803. Thanks Jon!). I’ve been looking forward to trying this one for awhile. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange color--almost like a widmer hefeweizen. Has a thick, fluffy off-white head that leaves some sticky lacing. Aroma has resin, mango, tropical fruits and a bit of vegetal notes. Taste is sweet malt backbone with awesome mango and tropical fruit notes. The bitterness is pretty sharp, but it does mellow. Full bodied with a thick texture. Nice balanced finish between sweet and bitter. Probably past its prime, but still really, really nice. The fruit notes are out of this world!

Bottle. A nice IIPA. Hazy yellowish/orange pour with a white head. Pine and citrusy hop aromas. Well balanced with pine, citrus, and grapefruit hop flavors that are held in check by a sturdy caramel malt backbone...

bottle courtesy of bauermj, thanks man! pours a very hazy hefe or gueze like yellow, totally opaque. smallish creamy oreange white head that leaves decent lacing and spotting in my half acre pint glass, also courtesy of bauermj, lol! huge amounts of mango in the nose, then grapefruit, then some slightly musty hefe like malts too. the flavor is very nice as well, tons of mango, sweet and tart citrus, just a delicious brew, tastes like a japanese mango soda or something.

Growler shared at JO’s. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy spruce citrus hoppy aroma. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a oily slick texture. Moderate alcohol bite at the finish. Very good brew.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2012 had this on tap and it poured a nice light orange color with a good foamy head. very aromatic and fresh aromas of hops, citrus’, floral tones and some bits of orange peels. medium bodied with a lot of depth on the flavors and feel. This is a real quality double IPA.

Growler shared by a BA @ Jackie O’s. Pours a hazy orange color with a smaller white head. The aroma is all about the hops: resiny, tropical fruit, pineapple and mango with earthy notes sneaking through here and there. The flavor has more of the same; tropical fruits, grapefruit, resiny and mango create a strong lasting bitterness. Enough of a malt backbone to provide a good base. I enjoyed this more than the original Double Daisy Cutter.

Bomber thanks to 17thfloor and Half Acre for sharing. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange with a small creamy white head. Aroma of sweet citric fruits, guava, grapefruit, tropical, a bit grassy. Flavor is very creamy fruit notes, almost like a sweet orange/guava/apricot juice. There is light bitterness in the finish, which lingers along with a note of grassiness sweet malts. Medium to medium full body and a soft carbonation. Interesting beer, great new hop character

Bottles thanks to the lovely people at HA. Love that hop haze. Huge peachy and tropical fruit aroma. Flavor follows, medium bitterness in the finish, love that fresh cut grass flavor, way more tropical than other daisy cutter variants, lightly toasty biscuity malt. Carbonation is sizzling, well attenuated.
