The beer is a hazy, orange-ish golden yellow hue (vague enough?) with a white, sticky head that leaves ringlets of lacing plastered about the walls of the pint glass. The aroma offers mangos, pineapples, sweet citrus. Smells sweet and hoppy. No surprise here. Sticky, sweet, and loaded with pineapple, mango, and melon flavors. Alcohol presence is certainly noticeable. This is pretty tasty, but probably best suited for slow sipping. Full bodied and creamy with warming alcohol. A solid beer. While not among my favorite DIPAs, I did find this one enjoyable and a nice departure from the norm.

Growler shared by john. The pour is a lightly hazed copper golden orange with a smallish white head that is pretty lasting for a pour from a growler. The aroma is big round citrus, grass and light honey floral. Big, expressive hop nose. The taste opens with lightly sweet malt and then turns quickly to the big expressive hop notes of the nose - orange citrus, hay grass, and floral dry notes. The alcohol is present in the warming finish, though doesn’t detract from the taste. The palate is medium bodied, soft active carbonation, and the dry warming finish. Nice one, thanks for bring the growler to KC and sharing, John.

On tap at Renegade. I mostly ordered this just to see how it stacks up to Alpine Exponential Hoppiness even though I knew it wouldn’t hold a candle. I must say that while Alpine has nothing to worry about this was surprisingly good. I thought I was tasting Columbus hops and was surprised to learn it was Summit which I normally find disgusting. This was extremely hoppy and thick so I was glad I only had a 3oz taster. Still, worthwhile and recommended for all hopheads. Serving type: on-tap

During GABF weekend. The last beer of a sampler and my favorite. Smooth and not alcoholic just strong bitterness and a crisp taste.

Draught as part of a flight, at the Renegade tap room, on October 6, 2012
Cloudy brown color, tan to light brown head. Sweet, hoppy, dry wall scent. Fruity, malty, sweet taste. Sugary aftertaste. Medium smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

Aubrey (3481) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at brewery, back in August. Rather tasty beer. Lots of citrus, grass and flowers balanced by rich malts with touches of cocoa and caramel. Super smooth. Balanced bitterness. Big alcohol was hidden dangerously well. Good stuff.

Draft at source. Pale golden pour. Heavy aroma of pine, garlic, onion, and to a lesser extent some mango/fruit. Some sweet, biscuity malt. Full flavor that follows suit with initial malt sweetness that gives way to pungent pine/onion/garlic. Full, juicy, and flavorful. Reminds me a bit of Founders Double Trouble. Excellent, excellent brew.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - SEP 4, 2012
8/18/12 notes: Draft, brewery. A risky but ultimately successful take on this over-the-top Triple IPA. A smack of fresh hops greets with notes of lemongrass herb, cut grass, citrus pith. Body is full, chewy, with a surprisingly nimble finish for all that weight. Flavor is waves of fresh hops (Chinook blend, perhaps?), supported by boozy warmth. Really solid for a style that always flirts with the overwhelming, and calls to memory similar heavyweights such as Hopsickle and White Knuckle.

On tap at the brewery in Denver, CO. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with a finger-width, creamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is big dank grapefruit pines with some tropical fruit florals, esters, and a sweeter caramel malt backing. Flavor is big caramel sweet malts with some breadiness and plenty of dank grapefruit pines. Lots of tropical florals with some lemon in the middle before some resins come in and this finishes pretty dry and bitter, but quite sweet with lots of caramel and fruit. Light alcohol warmth in a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body that drinks really easily with a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a huge, dank grapefruit and tropical floral DIPA with a big caramel sweetness to offset the bitterness. Really easy drinking for such a big beer despite the big fruity sweetness. Nice beer.
