Draft at Bukowskis Tavern in Cambridge, MA. Rich, smooth, balanced. Good forward hops, citrus and juicy but not over the top. Tasty.

ryecatcher (1365) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy orangey-amber with a thin white head, good lacing. Nose is pineapple, malts and some alcohol. Mouth is medium bodied, citrus (grapefruit) hoppiness and bittersweet up front, which rides a malty backbone through to a looonggg bitter finish. Not too complex, but a decent DIPA all the same.

zizzybalubba (1835) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Bruisin Ales, Asheville, NC (enjoy by August 9, 2013). Pours dark orange with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of clean pine, grapefruit rind, and pineapple. Great bitter hop flavor of grapefruit, grass, mango, pine needles, and pineapple. Just the right amount of malt to not so much balance but rather to tone down the hop assertiveness. Outstanding, of course. (Replaces an earlier review from Logans pre-GABF party, 2009, Denver, CO. Same score from the earlier review).

Tap. Orangish pour with a white head. Nose is grassy, pine and straw. Flavor is pine, straw, floral hops. Bitter finish and west coast dry.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Poured a deep lemon yellow with an amber tint and a slight haze. A big head of soft creamy foam that dwindled like it had all day to a thick cap and collar. Sticky, beautiful lacing. Excellent retention. Looks so good. Nose is not as strong as you would expect to look at this beer but it smells great. Citrus, lemon, tangerine, lime, you can smell the hop resin, tropical, grassy and some good strong pale malt with a lot of caramel and sugar. Taste is awesome. Its dry, crisp, refreshing, malt is deep and rich a little sugary, the hops are resiny and bitter with all the fruits washing over the palate. There was no alcohol on the nose but it is on the palate and it mingles well. Gentle carbonation and a good mouthfeel. This is a fantastic DIPA that comes right up to Stone for bitterness but stops before it becomes arrogant. Smooth and very well done.
