3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at GTMW - Pours hazy amber with a small white ring of head. Oniony hops dominate the nose, along with citrus and sweet malt. Lots of oniony hops in the taste, too, along with sweet, lightly bready malt. Smooth and well-carbonated, but too much onion.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazed orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, light tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is quite nice and vibrant with lots of fresh, sweeter pine and floral hops. Pineapple, tropical fruits, orange and grapefruit citruses, and some mango. Nice caramel sweetness to round out the aroma with a light stickiness. Flavor is similar. Lots of tropical fruits and piney pineapples up front with a sweeter caramel. Very fruity in the middle with a touch of bread before this finishes dry and clean with a medium-light, piney, fruity and juicy, tad bit resiny bitterness that leaves a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Lighter body with a moderate carbonation and no hint of the alcohol. Overall, a very nice DIPA. Lots of fruity flavor and very easy drinking. I liked this one a lot.

On tap: The aroma is very fruity. Lots of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, orange, grapefruit, and a touch of alcohol. Itís a hazy reddish-orange with a small white head that leaves behind some nice webbing for lacing. The flavor starts with tropical fruits, peach, and mango. The finish has moderate pineapple, orange, grapefruit, lemon, and a hint of alcohol. Medium-fill bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, one of the fruitiest IIPAs Iíve ever had...very tasty and way to drinkable for the abv.

Had at the brewpub. I think this was my favorite so far of the Haymarket brews. I think it got the balance between malt and hops just right. Quite fruity in its flavors. Way too drinkable for 10%. Nice stuff. Serving: Tap

Dark orangy body, small white head. Cloudy. Aroma of grapefruit and hops. Some alcohol. Delicious hoppy but slightly sweet flavor, almost a ruby red grapefruit flavor. Alcohol is apparent. Excellent beer.

Thanks to Kan for bringing this growler, drank from a Cigar City snifter... Pours a dark clearish orange, guess they finally started filtering. Looks pretty good... The aroma is lots of citrus fruits; oranges rind and grapefruits. Pine on the back, present but not overbearing, a touch of alcohol but no indication this is 10%... Malty bread caramel base shows through with oranges and pine. Tastey and easy to drink, I kept coming back to this throughout the night.
