Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours opaque oatmeal/orange - like it’s cereal ground and swirled. Lots of hop aroma that seems pine. Med + body. Flavor is sweet caramel with pine and lots of exotic type fruits. Pretty tasty beer.

A: The pour is a medium amber color with a finger or so worth of slightly off-white head. S: Sweet tropical fruits and caramel malt, and that’s pretty much it. Maybe a bit of sweet grapefruit, too. T: For as sweet as the nose is, there’s a very sharp bitterness to the flavor. There is also a lot of alcohol flavor. At least there are some good grapefruit, pineapple, and pine flavors so this isn’t a total bust. M: The body is medium and sort of syrupy for a DIPA. The carbonation is moderate. D: Not much here that I find pleasing in terms of a DIPA. Too sweet and just hot and boozy.

Tap at Max’s. Pours clear orange with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt with pear and pineapple esters with spicy, floral, and citrusy hops. Flavor is moderate hops and heavy bitterness, light esters, supporting sweet malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Orange pour, off white head. Great tropical fruit aromas with some citrus peel. Flavor is big and bold! Tropical fruit, guava, mango, tangerine, nice bitterness. Great!

GABF 2013. Pours a hazy orange appearance with a khaki head. Garlic-y, onion, tropical fruity, mango, pineapple aroma. Flavor has a weirdly stale taste to it that honestly reminded me of a six month old can of Big Swell IPA that I opened recently. Some tropical fruits in the flavor but kind of strange and dull at the same time.

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 12, 2011
On tap. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a bone colored white head. Good lace. Aromas are floral dank and citrusy with lots of tropical fruit. Minimal malt character which is fine by me. Flavors are dank, stonefruit, guava and CTZ (possibly?). Lively bubbles, and dry. Well done.

On tap at GABF. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. The aroma is sweet fruits, some tropical notes, caramel. The flavor is very nice: resin, bitter pineapple, some oranges, quite smooth. Is this their winter seasonal? Awesome.

On tap at the Holy Grail. Pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of tropical fruit. I get some mango, pineapple and grapefruit notes. The flavor is slightly different. I get some bitter orange and pine character, as well as some light resin notes. Medium bitterness. A very nice IPA.
