Amber gold, slight haziness, thin off-white head. Sweet and sticky aroma of ripe mango, pineapple, orange, and guava; citrus and floral notes. A bit sweet initially, but followed by strong bitterness and balanced with lively carbonation. A bit of booziness apparent, and a lingering bitter finish.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy orange with a half finger of creamy, white head that sticks the whole way through, leaving mild lacing. Mango dominates the nose, I couldn’t smell past it. The mouth is like juice, very similar to the beer formerly known as Alchemy Hour. A lot of hop flavors, not actually bitter. Very easy drinking for 9.5%. I loved it.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy, very dark orange with almost no head. Aroma of citrus and loads of tropical fruit. Taste is light bitter. Citrus and pineapple and tropical fruits. Wow this is good. Full bodied with a thick and sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, awesome. I could absolutely drink this everyday.

Pours a dark copper with a finger of off white head that dissipates quickly to a cap. Decent amount of slippery lacing. Nose is all citrus. Typical citrus notes: A lot of mango, pineapple and grapefruit followed up by a lot of floral hops. Mouth is awesome. A lot of citrus and floral hops. A perfect amount of bitterness mixed with the citrus notes. The mango and grapefruit stand out. Not overly bitter, but the perfect amount. This was an awesome beer.

Thanks to St.Fun for this bomber as part of a trade. Poured cold from the bomber into a pint glass. Hazy orange with a medium head. Floral aroma, but not as strong as I’d like (but perhaps I had it too cold...). Initially, it had some citrus, but a pronounced hop bitterness at the finish. I would have rated it at about a 15 or 16 if I stopped there. But as it sat for longer (I drank it myself over an hour) the bitterness smoothed out and complexity of the citra hops came out in all of their glory. Grapefruit, mango, pineapple, it had it all. Next time, I’ll take it out of the fridge 15 minutes before I pour it.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz Bottle. Pour is opaque with an orange heavy hue. Fairly thin white head. Nose is a floral citrus bomb with sweet malt as a backstop. Taste follows with a juicy citrus sweet malt explosion. Absolutely top notch and easily one of the best DIPAs out there if you are a Citra hops fan.

Orange pour with a white head. Big pineapple, grapefruit, and pine hops. Floral notes, some sweet caramel, peach, and mango. Nice nose. The flavor is a touch sweet with a lot of fruit notes and some caramel malt. There’s a ton of pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. Some bitter pine, a touch of grass, and a nice floral note.

Pours a orange amber with a beige head and sweet, pleasant aroma of mango and apricot. Taste is bittersweet, lots of bitter hops up front with citrus, apricot, and mango with a massive bitter finish. Amazing DIPA, lots of flavor and bitterness throughout

Pours a amber orange color. Nose will knock your socks off, all fresh peaches and mango, with some apricots. Taste is all fresh tropical fruits, including pineapple, mango and peaches, a perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness. Finishes beautifully with the flavors lingering. Can this be better than 3Fs Dreadnaught or as good, I think so. Thanks Archer and thank you Pipeworks. Quaff Score 9 / 10
