Howler to taster at NatiFest (shared by John). Looks good; a very slightly hazy golden orange with foamy white head. Smells and tastes nice and hoppy with loads of citrus and a mildly sweet backbone. Pleasantly smooth on the palate. A good DIPA.

Growler thanks to a guy named John at NF14 - cat urine nose. Malty backbone. Solid but not original. Aftertaste is different though.

a terrific dipa with a bunch of hop funk and flavor; very drinkable, almost tasted like some of my favorite wet-hopped ipas, though apparently it’s not.

Can from Nick thanks! From the can. Aroma of dank hops, tropical fruit, and malt sweetness. Taste is dank, bitter, malt and alcohol not pronounced. Easy drinking for a double. Kinda like heady’s little bro.

[Can (12oz) c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a slightly hazy gold with some sediment and a large long-lasting frothy white head. Lacing on the glass. Really nice aroma of citrus hops & piney hops, a bit resiny as well and with tropical fruit. Flavour is also pleasant, lots of citrusy and fruity hops, nice and easy to drink a as well for a DIPA. Alcohol is well hidden. Long bitter finish. Medium bodied. A well made, enjoyable DIPA, well done.

In a can Thanks to Owen Hazy orange apricot color. Nice tight white head. Nose is candied citrus, that changes to dank candied pine and herbs. Taste is quite vegital and dank. Ver y bitter and aggressive with hints of sweetness. Easy to drink for the large amount of dankness in this. Drinks lower than what it is. Very good DIPA

Draft at Birch Hill Tavern. Pours hazy apricot color with pretty, large-bubbled head. Aroma is very pleasant with dank hops, light tropical fruit, and citrus peel--nothing out of the ordinary but fresh and juicy and smellable. Taste is much drier and aggressive, in the direction of Heady in terms of pine and sweet malts but dialed back, with sweet orange and mango. Very drinkable for the ABV. Excellent.

Smell is floral fruity, fresh grape, pear, tea. Orange glowing bright pour. Taste is piny, lightly bitter and syrupy. Fruity and not overly bitter. Just not crazy about the style anymore at all bit this is a nice DIPA.

Growler courtesy of Greg, thank you!! Pours a vibrant yellow-gold. Nice two finger frothy white head. Very fine lacing. Sexy beer. Aromas are just a bouquet of hops! Fresh cut flowers, peaches, light pine.....I could probably go on with adjectives, but really, this aroma is so inviting! Everything you would want out of a fresh DIPA. Taste is incredible!! Perfect balance of hops (that bouquet in the aroma is amplified in the taste) and malt sweetness. Wave after wave of hop flavors settled on my palate. The tropical fruit upfront...mango, peach, apricot, pear....the slight pine resin and sap across the middle...then some very moderately bitter hops into the finish. Slight grapefruit tartness but no real bite. Finishes perfectly dry and clean. A mild bread, earth and herbal backbone help keep the mouth feel/flavor balanced with all the hops going to work on your palate. Medium carbonation...nice and lively beer. This was one of the best, if not the best Double IPA’s I have had. Severely under-rated beer, in my opinion.

On draught at the Blue Tusk last November. Light amber with a creamy white head. Smooth and tropical, some citrus, fresh, bitter and slightly resinous. Amazingly easy to drink, not too bitter at first but builds to a bitter crescendo with a long finish that keeps on giving as it dries out the palate. Mmmmm.
