A: The pour is a golden orange color with a nice white head on top. S: An intense citrus nose on this beer. Lots of juicy grapefruit notes with some orange and maybe a bit of pineapple as well. A very mild malt character. T: A sharp citrus kick up front featuring some fresh and juicy grapefruit flavors. The hops are slightly fruity but also some great piney bitterness, especially on the finish. M: The body is medium with a really crisp and refreshing finish and a great carbonation. D: A really easy to drink DIPA and one that is truly delicious as well. Im pleased to have been able to try this one out.

mcberko (16012) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
32 oz. growler, sent from Elliesbrown (thanks a lot, Zack!), pours a fairly clear orange with a small beige head. Nose is full of tropical fruits (pineapple, peach and mango, in particular), loads of citrus and resinous hops, and a big malt backbone. Flavour is robustly tropical fruit-heavy and citrus and resinous hops heavy, loads of grapefruit, and with a big, but not overdone, malt backbone. The hops pack a punch, but a beautiful one, without any astringency whatsoever. Full bodied and robust. Beautiful IIPA.

hopscotch (10901) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Growler This beer rocks! Clear amber/orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma is chock-full-of white pepper, tropical fruit and resin a straight-up menagerie of hop madness. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. Leans heavily toward the bitter side of balance. Almost violently bitter, but very tasty. Big-time malts, but even bigger hops. Finishes fruity and ruthlessly bitter. This growler of world class beer was provided by Elliesbrown!

Draft at The Lodge Hilton Head from notes. Pours a clear amber/copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had nice grapefruit and orange citrus character, resin, and leafy hops, pale toasted malts, caramel, moderate bitterness, solid DIPA, I was happy to come across this because I remember trying to get a bottle when it first came out.
