4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at the source with Linh before Chines New Year 2013. Pours a thick orange body with beautiful haze and white lacing. Aroma is fresh, juicy grapefruit, light funk, herbal character and fresh pine. Mouthfeel is creamy and full with wonderful flavors of funky grapefruit drizzled with honey, light pine, kiwi and fresh citrus. Hell yes.

Growler, courtesy GT, thanks! Pours hazy gold, white head, little retention/some lace. Aroma is big mango, citrus, tropical, cracker. Taste is moderately bitter, mango, citrus, floral hops; light caramel/cracker. Palate is soft, oily, a bit sticky, bitter finish. Really outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy goldenrod colored body, nice tight white head, soapy lacing. Nose shows grapefruit, mango and an assertive vegetable bitterness, flavor carries in the blend or tropical fruit and grapefruit and increases the vegetal-scallion component. Unfortunately for me, scallion hop notes are the one profile I can’t appreciate. I am cool with cat piss, but this doesn’t work for me. Medium bodied, nice carbonation, and.an intense bitterness. If you are sensitive to vegetable hops (think Gubna) this might not be for you either.

Floral aroma; hoppy. Pale yellow and cloudy. Great trail of lacing down the glass with every sip. Nicely bitter with some yellow grapefruit maybe. Alcohol is well concealed. Very tasty. Thin on the mouth, but nice. Overall a great beer that should be drank.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Tired Hands. Full haze mango juice pour. Big white lacing. Nose is soft, sweet mango juice. Taste is thick mango pulp, mild sugar, mild white alcohol. Thick, mango juice mouthfeel. So juicy and tropical. Thick and chewy. I’m in love. Have a growler of this and will re-rate since TH’s IPAs seem to get *better* after sitting in the growler for a week or so. In the running for one of my favorite DIPAs ever.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy light yellow with a thick white head...great lacing. Aroma is fabulous!...loaded with melon, kiwi, and stonefruits...mild herbal notes. Flavor leads with stonefruits and transitions to melon and kiwi nicely before a touch of herb and spices. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a nice melony/herbal finish. Beautiful!

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2013 On tap at TH, pours a hazy cloudy yellow gold color, thick and creamy large head, pretty good lacing. Aromas of heavy garlic and scallion onions, funky amarillo hops, and light sulfur. Taste is cheesy, citrus hops, nelson fuel, pine, light coconut. Very tangy and bitter, a little sugary. Medium body. Nice double ipa.
