From the brewer.Dark amber with off white head. Sweet malt and fresh piney hop aroma. Nice sweet malt flavor with resinous spicy hops. Some citrus. Medium body. Very enjoyable.

The beer pours out a hazy golden yellow body, pillowy white airy head. Aroma comes out somehow with a wheat/citrusy aroma. Flavor has a fruity/melon note to it, light sweetness and barely any noticeable hop character. Decent while cold, but kinda blech when it warmed up a tad.

ACHops (1329) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2016
On tap @ Toronado Seattle. Pours hazy medium golden with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet light caramel malt; floral fruity hops on the back with notes of mango and passionfruit. Taste is assertive medium caramel malt; hops are dank, lightly earthy, substantial floral undertones with light citrus notes throughout. Clean finish with faint lingering bitterness. Not quite as good as Big Swell, but solid IIPA.

Ernest (7285) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Draft at Maui Brewing in Kihei. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), moderately hoppy (marijuana, grapefruit, melon, resin). Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery/velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Fairly similar to the Mosaic Mo Betta, although this is a bit more west coasty in the hop aroma. Somehow MBC gets a fair amount of weed odor from their hop treatment; most of their draft pale ales / IPAs have it.

Amber, clear. Medium body and flavor, hot mouthfeel, well carbonated, avg palate. Bitter but well balanced by malty background. Caramel, hoppy, herbal. Quite nice, not great.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Draft… Pours hazy and golden with orange highlights and a large, white head. The aroma features an assortment of tropical, stone and citrus fruits with an undercurrent of gooey caramel. Full-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor is fruity, boozy and malty. Well-balanced and bittersweet overall. Finishes hot with lingering ethanol and resiny bitterness.

patricks110 (2409) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 16, 2015
Big DIPA! Lots of tropical fruity, syrupy sweet notes of mango, pineapple, guava. Heavy aroma of fruit, light pine, caramel and honey. Sweet and sweltering with a bulge of bitterness on the finish. Big and boisterous but a nicely done DIPA!

Tap at Petrol Station. Hazy light orange pour with a big white head. Lots of fruitiness in this - sweet and yummy. Decent malt backbone.

pretty fantastic juicy big bodied double IPA. Description is pretty spot on with the fruits, and it’s a little dank, bitter, and sweet. Good stuff.
