Pours clear light amber with a thin white head. Aroma is dank with hoppiness, but you can smell the strong malt base. Taste is sweet malt and balanced bitterness, and the aroma keeps coming on. Great DIPA!

Lightly clouded yellow gold, light white head. Strong honey, tropical fruits. Quite sweet, lighter bitterness. Medium body, decently oily. Longer, almost umami finish. Good.

BeerBunker (931) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2015
22oz bottle. Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma is of honey, citrus, dank hops, and biscuit. Damn, that smells good. Taste is dank. So very dank. There is also a lot of honey, juicy hops, and citrus. Has a biscuity malt backbone. Lingering dankness. Holy hell, this is good. Mouthfeel is light and soapy. Drinks easy, and it tastes good. They honey really adds something.

50belair (2955) - Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Clear burnt orange pour with a white head. Big malty bouquet. Tasty with grapefruit and citrus hop notes that blend well with the big honey and caramel malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel.

Draft at bad apple. You can smell this one from pretty far away. Aroma is lovely, fresh mango, apricot, clementines. Flavor continues on that fresh tropical fruit buzz however the hops and malt leave a fair amount of sweetness behind. Just not bitter enough here. There’s also some kerosene notes in the flavor that are distracting. Very oily. Body is pretty big. After a few sips it gets laboring. Fair amount of alcohol comes through as well. I’d like Simcoe to make a bigger presence here. Aroma is the best part. Could be cleaned up a bit but has promise.

Homer321 (2759) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle via trade. Nose is light to moderate citrus. Some honey sweetness. Taste is initially fairly balanced. A light peppery note. Not overly hoppy and a tad sweet. Meh. Moar hops please

Pipeworks does not disappoint on their tradition of fine IPAs. Bright citrus-pine-hoppiness on the snoze, and bountifully danky hop on the buds. Frothy head and hazy amber with some sticky lacing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I mean…I gotta start with the flavor… I mean... some serious Dank Hops, malty thickness and some of yo boo’s va jay jay, I’m just sayin. light on the aroma, heavy on the white head (that’s what she said), with a murky copper hue. Droppin da Mic!

A tasty collaboration out of Chicago! Pours a hazy golden color and has the nice bite of hops without a lot of bitterness because it's well balanced with the honey. Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
