4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden straw and clear with a medium white head. Aroma is tropical fruit (mango) and citrus with some alcohol heat. Taste is tropical fruit, grapefruit and and herbal grassiness from the hops. Lingering bitterness. Malt is just a subtle background sweetness. Palate is medium bodied with crisp carbonation and a little alcohol heat.
Overall an exceptionally drinkable DIPA that does what it should: the malt gets out of the way of the hops and it just enough to make it balanced and drinkable.

pretty easy drinking ipa, especially for a 9% imperial. Pilsner malt and mosaic hops’ll do that :) Fruity and tropical aroma, not overly bitter at all. Not in Dirt Wolf category, but pretty nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Moriartys. Clear gold with a slim delicate white flame top. Not that much aroma when cold, which initially masks the huge grassy lemon floral taste. Unripe oranges. Lemon thyme. Pineapple cores. Strong hop bite. When it warmed one could easier sense the light caramel malts underneath. Buttered shortbread. Nicely done.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer looks like a nice pilsner but has a nice tropical citrus IPA aroma. Over juicy pineapple tropical mango flavors. I prefer the classic piney citrus west coast hops as opposed to the juicy new varieties like mosaic.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear deep golden light amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is a wonderful fleshy tropical fruit, floral hops, with a touch of caramel sweetness. Flavor is bit sharp, fleshy fruit hops, hint of citrus. Light to medium in body with a lingering slightly astringent tropical fruit hops. Very tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy golden orange, decent white head. Smells toasty, with a good bit of flowery hops. Taste is fresh bread, mixed with a nice citrus and flowery hop flavor. This was surprising - most DIPAs are either overly sweet or heavy or bitter, and this seemed to be well balanced and tasty. I’ll get this again...

12 oz. Hazy amber with an actively bubbly body that supports a lasting eighth inch of creamy foam. Large nose of green herb, grapefruit, pineapple, toast, caramel and resin. Tastes of earthy honey, evergreen resin, orange, mint and toast. Medium body has a smooth low-medium carbonation and just a nice touch of the abv.
