Growler. Pours a honey golden body with a white head. Soft and herbal, hemp and very weedy. The hop character takes a very grass and earth y tone. Not really juicy sweeter like some of the other dipa’s from the west coast. Light citrus, soft and herbal, very sticky and bittering. Light resins, nice offering.

I had this on tap and fell in love with. From the start, I could smell this beer all day and be happy, but getting to drink it is amazing. Very nice balanced color and taste, not too heavy, amd closer to what I would say a seesion ipa is. The citra hops come out in full force and will leave you wanting more. The brewers are also super cool and down to earth.

Massive grapefruit aroma. Hazy orange, copper with a full white head. Starts off slightly watery, but continues with medium-full warming mouthfeel. Malt holds up nicely for this hop bomb. Citrus and grapefruit. Bitterness throughout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bistro DIPA fest 2011. Pours a light orange golden with a thin lasting sticky white head. Powerful orange tangerine citra hops, pine resin some sap, and light spicy weed. Flavor is lgith crackery- just tons of resinous citra hops, orange zest, lemon, tangerine spiciness and oily although the finish is a bit drier than most- less sappy sticky sweet than some, very easy drinking and very fresh. One of the top 5 of the fest. Awesome!
