3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Brewer’s Pizza, RBWG 2013. Pours mostly clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Lots of ripe citrus in the nose. Medium sweet flavor, juicy orange, some sticky pine. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Resinous piney hop finish, light caramel, toasty bread, ripe orange, modest alcohol kick. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. Clear amber beer with a sticky off white head. Big sticky hop resin nose. This is a big hoppy beer with lots of resin, grapefruit rind and apricot flavors. Some earthy tones and a long hop finish. It stands up well with the pizza.

Pours a cloudy brown with a large off-white head. Aroma is hops, pineapple/tropical fruit - beautiful. Taste is mellow pine with an easy bitter finish. Tried to find the tropical fruits in the taste, but couldn’t quite do it. Still, it’s a good DIPA!

Pinglehead always puts out some good product. This doesn’t disappoint. Not as bold as I was expecting, but still good flavor and smooth finish.

Starts off great with the sniff! My batch was a just under room temp so it was very aromatic but the flavored were a little off. Good for what it is but not epic: Will rate again soon!

7/30/12. On tap at the brewery. Clear amber pour with a khaki head. Dank hoppy aroma with citrus and some pine. There’s also a bready graininess. Nice hoppy flavor with good hop character with citrus amd tropical fruits. Not bad!
