This American Double India Pale Ale is packed with juicy tropical fruit flavors and bright herbal aroma, thanks to the abundance of US-grown hops.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a light copper with white head and some lacing. Aroma of piney hops, light citrus, mango, light malts. Taste is full of citrusy hops, piney, mango, nice hop backbone but not overpowering. Medium body and medium carbonation. Fantastic.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 2, 2013
22oz bottle from Brown Jug, leftover from the Culmination Fest. Pours cloudy yellow orange with a foamy off white head and a few chunks. Aroma is full of tropical fruits like pineapple, some cat pee/pine, malt and a light sweet bubble gum. Flavor is firmly bitter hops with a clean malt and yeast profile, very light alcohol. Medium body with a dry bitter finish and a soft mouth feel. This one is packed with tropical hop aroma and flavor while being very well balanced. I love this beer.

thome50 (1229) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle from the 5th Anniversary event, thanks Ernesto! Pours a deep and slightly hazy golden with big white head. Aroma is cat piss and some ground meat. Not that pleasant and not the tropical fruit bomb that others have described. Taste is more bitter than anything else. The fruit is not apparent as the beer is cold but nectarine comes into play as the beer warms. Very thick mouth feel which is nice but gives this beer a seemingly bigger ABV than 8%. My enjoyment increases as the beer warms but this just isn’t what I was expecting. Maybe a little papaya in there which is pretty much the only fruit I dislike which might play into my rating. Overall, not digging this as a top 25 best DIPA on RB.

Zeeben (36) - Goffstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a deep shade of orange. Half a finger of fine white foam that quickly dies down. The nose, this is what heaven smells like, huge citrus bomb with heavy passion fruit florals. Fabtastic beer, loves the hop butter balance.

Lukaduke (2689) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a rich golden color with a finge ror two of sticky white foam. The nose was a bit restrained with some tropical fruit, grapefruit and fresh grass opening up as the glass warmed and I gave it some agitation. On the palate it followed the nose with a touch more punch but a slightly chalky mouthfeel especially on the late palate leading toward the finish. Solid beer but no where near my expectations...

Bottles obtained by my homie Nick at the 5th anniversary event... Thanks man! Pours a semi opaque yellow amber color with a nice white head that dissipates to a film. Good lacing too. Smell is heavy tropical fruits... Mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and floral hops. Taste is again with the tropical fruits... Mango and grapefruit standout. Crisp clean slightly bitter finish. Top tier DIPA.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 26, 2013
Thanks Nick! Hazy golden pour with a robust lasting white head. Huge oozing resinous hop character with bright citrus in the nose lead to herbal dankness, hints of scallion, stone fruit, and sappy richness. Classic American style hop bill, executed quite deftly. Medium body with caressing carbonation and a dry, albeit sticky finish. Stellar DIPA!
