This will be my 700th. Another milestone in beer tasting. This is an interesting ale. The ale poured a clear gold with a frothy head and major lacing. The grapefruit flavors was signifcant. This is a mouthful of citrus. The medium body finishs with a bitter aftertaste. This is a great ale, what a surprise.

This IPA pours a clear golden, slightly orange color. Basically no head is poured and very little lacing. Small amount of carbonation. The aroma is really nice on this one. It’s full of tropical fruit. Mango and grapefruit. Mixed in there is a sweetness from the malt and some honey.
The taste is light and delicate with being full of hops and sweetness. Tropical fruits again with sweetness from the malt and honey like taste. It’s teetering from being a nice huge hoppy beer but is pulled back a bit from the sweetness. But it’s tasty and a joy to drink.
Mouthfeel was actually a tad bit disappointing. It was very light. But crisp. Nice bitter after taste.

I’ll take this over Brown shugga anyday. Pours gold with a slight orange tinge. White foam covers the beer’s surface. Big citrus aromas dominate with a hefty pine scent as well. There are also grainy aromas of caramel. The flavor follows suit. Big citrus and pine resin. The complexity of the malt selection really makes itself apparent. The rye and wheat make a small but welcome apppearance and the oats lend to a wonderful body. I hope this is brewed again. It is a top knotch double ipa.

Wow know I know why this rivals pliny this is damn good. The aroma wasnt very strong some piney hops and tropical fruits but had to really work my nose since the beer was actually to cold. The taste though was an amazing explosion of grapefruit, piney hops some citrus and orange peel also lots of hops on this one. The mouthfeel had a very nice carbonation. Overall an amazing brew easy to drink very hoppy with mild bitterness I loved it.

12oz bottle pour. hits the glass a beautiful orange color with solid off white head. BIG citrus hop aroma, so fresh! sweet pineapple and piney as well. you’re hit with an intense citrus flavor, reminiscent of grapefruit from the first taste. bitter on the finish with a nice ’lil alcohol kick. some sick lacing on the glass and good head retention throughout the glass! great stuff!
