Damico (2747) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours lemony white with a creamy white head. Aroma is a big lemony citrus sweet punch so pleasant with the preferred hops of US and. New Zealand. Flavor is similar bringing big citrus lemon hops, not zesty or overly sweet but so smooth and pleasant on the tongue.

Growler thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy orange gold with thick frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is a strong grapefruit and pine. Medium mouthfeel with clean sweet hop, light bitterness, so easy to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

29/IV/14 - 75cl growler bottle @ De Hopduvel - BB: IV/29/14 (2014-443) Thanks to AdamJackson and Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Pretty cloudy straw yellow beer, no noticeable head. Aroma: very fruity, piny and resinous hop aroma’s, citrus, pineapple, passion fruits, grapefruit. MF: soft carbon, full body. Taste: sweet and fruity start, lots of exotic fruits, passion fruits, very bitter resinous hops, lots of bitter grapefruit. Aftertaste: very piny, bitter, bit medicinal, lots of grapefruit, citrus, agrum fruits, dry medicinal bitter ending. Not my favourite kind of (i)ipa, too bitter and no sweet malt base to balance it out. Solid beer nevertheless.

Growler: Thanks, Max. Translucent, pale pear colored body; cloudy, & topped with a fuzzy, white, micro-bubbled head that quickly spreads to a chunky collar. Lightly dank, sticky hop oils crowd the aroma with an amazing, underlying fruit presence... Sticky, pungent passion fruit, juicy pineapple, mango, grapefruit, guava... Wow. I can’t decide if it’s more tropical or citric. I think, tropical. But whatever, it smells fantastic. Hint of resin in the finish. Taste is so crisp & clean, lots of juicy passion fruit & grapefruit out of the gate - bitter, but not abrasively so. A good, weedy hop punch with that sticky, dank, resinous mid-palate that swings into a bitter, dry, clean finish littered with grapefruit rinds, orange peels, & lingering peach. Plain & simple, another fantastic IPA from Shaun, it’s not even fair.

JBPortland (1003) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 7, 2014
750ml growler (6 days old) pours cloudy opaque pale orange-yellow with a finger of head. Nose is dank juicy grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, tropical fruit. Taste is incredibly soft mouthfeel, deep juicy dank tropcal fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest. Finish is balanced bitterness and tropical fruit juice which coats the palate and lingers pleasantly, touches of soft malt. Near perfect. Simply the best DIPA I have tried.

ThirstyBird (1880) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2014
Thanks to tderoeck! Pours a hazy yellow orange color with a tight white cap. The smell is grapefruit and tropical fruit. The taste is red on grapefruit initially with some softer tropical fruit notes coming in later with a touch of honey sweetness, ending dry and somewhat bitter. On the light side of medium with the typical Hill Farmstead wonderfully fine, elegant carbonation. Great stuff!

On tap during DLD 2014. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with a white head. Aroma came across like a fart laden grapefruit at first. Kind of light on the hop aroma. The taste is light and on the bitter side of balanced. Not as amazing as people make it out to be. KingSue was the star of the show that day.
