Pours a very light golden color with two fingers of frothy-white head. Aroma is sweet caramely citrus. Flavor is very sweet with a little hint of pine and grapefruit bitterness. This is a very good Double IPA that has the best of both the bitter and sweet worlds.

My favorite beer. As a hop head, this has enough hops to hide the alcohol content, and yet still provides a nice floral finish.

Theydon_Bois (12744) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle split on the booze buse during RBWG ’15 - thanks to Craig?, 20/02/15. Golden orange with a moderate off white cap. Nose is pissy citrics, skunky hop, caramel malt, bitter orange. Taste comprises pine needle, mango, straw, tangerine. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with licks of hop bitterness. Decent DIPA.

hopscotch (10085) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle... RBWG 2015… Pours mostly clear and amber with a small, fleeting, white head. The aroma provides stone fruits and a big-time medley of citrus fruits – tangerine, grapefruit and orange come immediately to mind. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is all about heavy, citrusy, rindy bitterness. There’s a sturdy malt backbone here, but it provides little flavor, just a viscous body – a durable platform for the hops. Lengthy, bitter finish that dries out.

16oz. Purchased at Gracie’s in SLC, the pour Is a hazy amber color, topped with an off-white cap about two fingers deep. The bartender insists that this is the best double IPA ever made. :-) Sharp heavy pine on the nose, some grapefruit; not terribly juicy but that’s not what I was expecting anyway. I do love dry hopping, but the edge of the hops cuts through, finding their way to the back of my tongue, a slight bitter, light on fullness in flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit off, as I enjoy a stickier liquid in a DIPA, the carbonation cuts through a semi-creamy brew and leaving a long, fairly comfortable afterward. Good, but not the best one ever made.

snoworsummer (3253) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle at the brewpub. Pours clear amber copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like smooth, sweet caramel, grapefruit hops, a hint of resin, and orange. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel, grapefruit, hop resin, and nutty malt.

Not much aroma. Bitter light not the best hop. Malt is present. Thin fading head. Eh. Get the low gravity stuff

It’s easy to grin, when your ship come in,
And you’ve got the stock market beat,
But the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile,
When his shorts are too tight in the seat.
