Draft at Tired Hands with Dallas, Pj and Vinny. Pours a light golden body with nice white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is fresh fruit - citrus and light tropical character, super faint dankness in the back. Mouthfeel is medium to soft, very smooth and creamy with great notes of citrus fruits bursting, tropical flavors, melon, grass, pine, lemons and nice citric hop throughout. Another great, stand-out IPA from TH. Cheers.

A suprise growler drop into a box from Jesterdeal. One of the more unique hop profiles I have experienced recently and floats all around the tropical citrus palate. Apricot tangerine in the flavor. Sweet bubble gum aromas. Nice full bodied and sweet mouth coating. Big body and caramel working in the background. Great balance and presence without being overly boozy or sticky sweet. Pours a murky light yellow color. Really incredible.

Heard the back story on this. Brewery Vivant and their mostly mediocre beers have lost my business. Pours a nice orangish amber with ample white head. Scent is pine and citrus. Big hoppy bite drifts nicely into a slight sweetness. Light-medium body and well carbonated. Growler - Share from jrob21

Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, tropical fruits, floral hops, citrus fruits,and light toasted malts. Taste of pine, citrus, tropical fruits, pine resin, and a moderately bitter finish.

PhillyCraft (3166) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Tap at pub, pours lightly hazy ornage. Aroma is heavy graperuit, orange citrus, and lots of skunky simcoe and citra. Taste is the same with lightly cat pissy hops, orange, pineapple, and pine. Medium body. Nice ipa.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a lightly cloud gold with one finger of dense, milky, frothy, white head and a blanket of lasting soapy lace. Nose of apricot, grapefruit, orange rind, mango. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Smooth bitter finish. Really nice DIPA.

Dark orange-colored body, medium sized off-white head, soapy lacing. Grapefruit, citrus, pine, and earth hop notes. Light pale malt base. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation, lively bitterness, assertive finish that lingers for a bit before cutting off. Nice dIPA.

Day old growler from the source. Hazy orange brown with a few forced bubbles. Nose is tangerine, pine and toffee with hints of funky cat. Medium body with a tingle; juicy and resiny. Taste is pine, citrus peel, nectarine, peach and grass. Delicious. Actually a bit restrained for a Double.
