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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent red brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was hoppy and Irish Red malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of Irish red malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
