Sample from a bottle cracked at Tired Hands. Pours shimmering orange-gold with a thin, sudsy white head. Aroma of pears, honey, tangerine, and pineapple. Taste is very pineappley and reminiscent of Heady Topper. Silky smooth palate. Easy going, fresh, oily, and delicious. Phenomenal.

Draft. Delicious! Golden colored with a white fluffy head that sheds ample lacing. The aroma is full of tropical fruity hops; pineapple and mango. I like the lower abv for a Double IPA. Itís aggressively hopped with citrusy notes, plenty bitter, but still drinkable as hell with hardly any alcohol heat. A crackery sweetness with some toasty notes pair well with the fruity and herbal hop flavors. Very tasty stuff.

On tap. Hazy gold pour white head. Aroma of sweet sticky liquid hop juice, piney with some grassy and fruity undertones. Taste is bitter but not overly so , resinous with a long bitter aftertaste, lemony too. Palate is pretty heavy but well carbed. Really good iipa

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured vibrant, golden/yellow with a thick white head. This was earthy and spicy with a nice hop character. Quite refreshing and very much balanced for a IIPA. Grassy, citrus, vegetables and a hint of malt.

This bottle was courtesy of the infamous Adam Jackson, purchased last weekend. Thanks Adam!
This beer pours a cloudy and bright tangerine orange in color with a two finger, bright white head. The nose is extremely fresh and full of pineapple and that trademark Smcoe aroma. Despite that, itís pretty fruit forward as far as the hops are concerned with a touch of pine. Itís very aromatic. The flavors are dry and fruity, very fresh with loads of fresh hop presence. It drinks slightly bitter and slightly dry. The malt bill is lighter, helping drinkability. The alcohol isnít present either. Overall this is a really, really nice DIPA. Iím grateful I could try it, and so fresh.
