Tulip glass from bottle. Pours an amber red color with a fluffy white head. Floral and citrus in the nose, with ruby grapefruit, tangerine, and navel orange on the tongue. Red honey, sweet and tasty in the finish.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. Pours slightly cloudy orange/yellow with a minimal white head. The aroma is very hoppy, with lots of citrus and orange notes as well as some piney resin. The flavor is lots of pine, but not too much bitterness. Very drinkable, medium mouthfeel.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Gabe. Cheers Gabe! It pours a nice amber color with a medium, frothy off white head. The nose is a mix of pineapple and tropical fruit. All hops, all the time. The flavor is a combination of those tropical fruit notes from the hops and a nice sweetness from the malt side. It leans towards the bitter side, as it should. It reminds me of a strong Two Hearted with a little more pine and lingering bitterness. Good brew for sure.

Pours a beautiful golden orange color. Nose is full of peaches and citrus and quite pleasant. Taste is all citrus with tropical fruits and peaches. Finish is sweet with a mouthful of citrus. Great DIPA . Quaff Score 8 / 10

On tap at Otto's. Deep copper pour with a fine light tan head. Good lacing. Nose is resin, pine, caramel. Lots of toffee malt balanced by a nice, biting hop undercurrent. Citrusy and fresh. Medium full mouthfeel. Very satisfying. A nice level of carbonation to knock down the alcohol and malt sweetness. Very enjoyable. Nicely balanced for a DIPA. It doesn't have that tooth enamel dissolving character that so many of them do. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

Pours dark straw/amber colored. Huge aroma of hops, with some citrus, and floral notes. Tastes extremely hoppy, and finishes with more hops, malt, slight dryness, and some fruitiness. I took a growler of this home (I bought 3 growlers here on my first visit, that's how good the beers were).

Growler from the brewpub. Pours a dark amber coppery color with a thin white head. Aroma is of fresh wet east coast pine needles and plenty of hops. Flavor is piney with a slight malty aftertaste, Excellent overall.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Growler. Pours a deep almost brownish orange with a thin head. Nose is piney and floral. Ever drink a Christmas tree adorned with grapefruits. Well, this one is it. This was very delicious once you were used to the extreme pineyness, but it all made perfect sense in the end, A flatline of bitterness throughout. Nice balance of the hops and malts. This was a VERY drinkable 2IPA, but be careful of the alcohol, itíll get ya.

Mjames left this growler for the tasting...that he didnít attend; nice guy. Classic medium amber with a white head. Citrusy, piney tropical fruit nose (amarillo perhaps?) really nice. Big pine, grapefruit, vanilla, tropical fruity, juicy hops with plenty of caramel malt backing. For the amount of hopping, this was very smooth. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Very good IIPA!
