Bottle shared by b3shine on the bus at RBWG. Thanks Beau! This bottle was only one month old but goddamn have I become so picky about my ipa’s being fresh that 1 month now seems likes 6 to me (and Bangs). This beer tasted old to me. Not a lot of hop character, lots of sweeter malt, cheesy hops, vanilla, butterscotch. Was actually hard to finish the small sample.

Bottle during RBWG bus! Thanks b3shine! Nice amber pour with a good head and lacing. Really nice dank aroma with pine and citrus. Bitter hoppiness and a touch of caramel in the flavor. Delish!

Aromas of grapefruit, piney, and floral hops, and some subtle caramel. Clear orange-amber with mostly fading, off-white head foam. Very bitter and dry. Light-medium bodied, average carbonation, with a clean, snappy, bitter finish.

2 ounce bottle shared by Beernadz, thanks for the share, poured an amber color with aromas of grapefruit rinds, hops, and light bitterness. Flavors are the same less citrusy hops then expected, light toffee in the flavor as well. Thanks again for the share.

Wales bro. Shit tastes good. Amber pour with a small off white head. Very clear. We are off to a great start. Strong mango and cantaloupe aroma. Pine, pined apple, caramel, toffee, lemon/lime zest, sour diesel, pine tar, etc. etc. This one captures a ton of different hop signatures but it all comes together without being overly disjointed. My only complaint is it is rather bitter for my tastes, but hey, it’s an IIPA and people like that shit. Not fucken bad.

Bottle - many thanks to Anthony for muling this across the country for me! Pours a beautiful clear golden amber with a small white head and good lacing. Pungent, fresh aroma of grapefruit with some notes of pine - really hitting the sweet spot. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet and medium bitter with a bitter finish. Fairly light bodied and a bit oily in the mouth. ABV is masked well, almost dangerously well. All in all this is a great DIPA; one of the best I have had. Perhaps a bit too bitter (gasp!), but otherwise just about perfect.
