on tap at piece (12/4/09).... pours a medium orange caramel brown with a thin soapy/frothy white head. as it turns out, it is lighter in comparison to camel toe... aroma of bright tropical fruits, again similar to camel toe, with a sweet malt backbone... flavors of tropical hops, mainly mango and pineapple-like, with a mild citrus rind bitter finish. middle is predominantly filled with sweeter tones. as usual, piece create another well-balanced dipa. decent body with medium carbonation. when had side by side to camel toe, wack job was just slightly less bitter overall. i hold them both pretty high in regards with a slight edge to CT but this one is pretty damn good.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Tap at the brewpub. Explosive grapefruit, tropical juices, lemon, cherry. Wow! Light body, screaming hop prowess, with a perfectly light bitterness to make this juicy enough even your kids would drink it. No sugar to be found. Perfect West Coast IPA, bursting with freshness. Canít ask for much more than this in a IIPA.

Piece seems to have about a dozen IIPAs but they do a good job on all of them so no complaints. Hazy orange color. Filled to the brim so no head but it does leave a good bit of lacing on the side of the glass. Tremendous hoppy nose. My guess is loads of amarillo. Thereís lots of sweet orange and a slight floral overtone. Slightly fruity sweet but balanced by a firm earthy bitterness. Light to medium bodied, esp. for a higher gravity beer, w/ vigorous carbonation to help dry things out a bit. Another nice, fruity hop-accented beer from Piece. They get more attention for their wheats but they do these as well as anyone.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2010 On tap at Piece. Pours dark hazy burnt orange with off-white head. Aromas of dank hops, citrus, tropical fuits, sweet caramel and some malt. Flavor has tons of citrus, sweet fruits, bitter hops, some caramel, and solid malt backbone. Finishes bitter and citrusy. This was a truly solid IIPA. Worth the trip to Piece alone.

On tap @ piece. Fresh hops citrus doughy caramel malts. It seemed really sweet at first but the sweet malts and bitter hops balance out. Bitter tropical fruit, grapefruit, and grassy hops Creamy sweet body. Solid.

Another Double IPA from Piece. Pours orange with an off white head. Hop bomb all the way, filled with citrus aroma and flavor. Nice sweetness to try to balance, but the bitterness really wins. I didnít have the Camel Toe this time, but would like to compare right next to each other. I remember liking Camel Toe more.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2010
Aroma pretty much a blower right out of a hop bag, overpowering the malting , seemed to get better after every sniff, flavor while still extremely resiony /citrus hops had more caramel evident then you would have expected from the aroma,heavy hopping caused an abrupt drying in the finish. Doesnt have that purly powerful gunner hop aroma of say a Three Floyds,but truly one of the best non-bottled Imp Ipas Iíve had

Served on tap at Piece. The appearance is a golden orange with a nice white head. The flavors and aromas are full of great grapefruit and orange rind, a real nice balance of sweet and bitter. Mouth is medium to full with a nice carbonated. A real nice surprise!

Awesome DIPA. Pours orange amber with minimally no head. Big hit of citrus that drives into a complex line of citrus and spice but without anyone out balancing the other.
