Bottle thanks to growler. Thanks! poured into one of those sam adams glasses I found clean in my cupboard. hazy gold, aroma of dankiness, fruitiness, with hints of awesomeness. flavor is well balanced with hop flavor and bitterness. balances the citra? hops with a bit of columbus/chinook type hops. very enjoyable. reminds me of a enjoy by but without the hop ’edges’ of roughness and palate wrecker, but a slightly thinner mouthfeel, making this beer dangerously drinkable. probably one of the best DIPAs I have had in a while. Thanks Scott!

Massive nose of grapefruit, slightly amonia. Juicy mango and lychee flavours with a bit of honey sweetness. Full body, finishes semi sweet.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Alex! Bright, radiant gold with a big, slow settling foamy white head that leaves nice lacing behind. Aroma is huge citrus & tropical hops; pungent pineapple, mango, tangerines, papaya, grapefruit. Huge pungency & awesome hop oils... Dripping wet, gushing fruits. Taste is... Amazing. Pungent, juicy hops. Citrus, mango, pineapple, orange, papaya, sticky hop leaves, dank resins... Just a touch of cracker malt, not sweet at all. Perfect bitterness... Nice pine & fruit finish, dry and long lasting. Fantastic, world class. The best DIPA I’ve had to date.

A: Pours a clear golden orange color with a white foamy head on top, nice retention with streaky lacing all down the sides. S: I was expecting it to be much more pungent but still very nice. I smell alot of tropical fruit (mango, pineapple) to start then some citrus, orange, and grapefruit. There was a little bit of pine and light caramel. A bit of sweetness as well. T: Just like the aroma lots of citrus fruit mixed with a little bit of pine. Grapefruit and a big of orange and orange peel. On the back end it get bready malt notes. M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, dry on the tongue (love that). O: Really enjoy this beer but not as in your face as I thought it would be, really nice aroma and flavor that is dry and not really sweet. One of my favorites for sure.

Cloudy orange with a finger of white head. Big citrus nose, orange grapefruit, mango, pineapple, pine, slight floral note. Taste is just like the nose. No alcohol detectable. Fantastic DIPA, right in my wheelhouse.

First off, A big shout out to my man WillRunForBeer, for picking this up at the Farmers Market for me. 22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazed yellow orange with a one finger white head. Sharp pine resin and tropical fruit aroma. Oranges, mangos and peaches. Flavor has a tropical fruit sweetness about it backed by a good biscuit malt base. It’s the closest thing I’ve to sunshine in a bottle. Outstanding!

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 Bottle during the Superbowl; I apologize for the brief notes. This is a fantastic IPA, bursting with fresh, juicy hops. Very tropical rather than citric, with great balancing bitterness. Perfectly dry. Acquire at any cost. Wish I had a case of this to drink for myself.

Props to Chris for this super fresh bottle, batch 192, bottle # 117... Pours a murky light gold, dark in the middle, a little ugly. A nice white head, great retention and lacing... The aroma is fantastic, so fresh, just plucked pine needles with pineapples and an assortment of tropical fruits... Taste is equally great, bitting pine and alcohol of a dipa, but muted and so drinkable. This is awesome, must try.
