Bottle into my DC Brau tulip. "Bottled in 2012" Appearance: Pours a hazy but beautifully glowing orange with a one finger white head. sticky lacing and decent retention. Aroma: Fresh grapefruit citrusy hops. Taste: Lots of grapefruit citrusy hops Very fresh and tropical with some pine notes showing up. Dry biscuity malt, although there isnt much to speak of. not complaining though. Plenty of flavor in this one. Not too complex. Excellently balanced. Flavors are so crisp and refreshing. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Perfect carbonation. Smooth and a fantastic bitter finish. Another fantastic brew from what is quickly becoming the best local brewery. Shout out to my man Chad for the hook up on this one. I love trying DC Braus beers.

Can, brought back from DC by Lalitha. Nice amber colour, white foam, vanished a bit quick. Pretty good DIPA this, nice malt balance and big tropical citrus hop with a little pine. Bitterness obviously high but not too much for the malt. Drinks very easily for abv. Good stuff.

Fresh cans from the brewery. Pours dark orange with medium head disappearing fast. Aroma: incredibly fresh aroma of ripe tropical fruit, a nice malt touch. Taste: very fresh and well balanced mix of tropical fruit, some pine, nice malt body, a touch of biscuits. ABV is very well hidden. This is a dangerously drinkable imperial IPA and definitely one of my favorites.

12 oz. can from nimbleprop - thanks again! Pours a clear golden orange until the last ounce of the can comes out, dumping a ton of yeast floaters into the glass. Small white head, settling into an uneven ring and spotty film, leaving streaks and spots of lace in the glass. The sweet malt backbone is the first thing thats apparent here, with toast, honey, caramel, pine resin, citrus, tea, and florals. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, bitter, resinous mouthfeel. Not bad, but I want to try it again super fresh.

12 oz.can, courtesy of DCLawyer. Thank You Sir. Poured a lovely blood orange, slightly hazed, with a 1/4" ecru head that retreated rather quickly. Not much in the way of lace. Nice, dank, earthy hop aroma. Flavor is a bit more malty than the aroma would suggest. Semi sweet, but still enough hop bitterness so you dont forget youre drinking a Dipa. Well balanced. Alcohol is subtle. Body is to the full side with a lingering mildly bitter aftertaste. Nice!

JDBaker11058 (2008) - Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2016
appearance: carefully poured--clear gold, a finger of creamy-to-frothy light tan-to-orange head; good lacing. aroma: blast of hops--citrus (grapefruit), pine (&resin), plus some dank, catty notes; malt is in the vein of floral honey and graham crackers. taste: syrupy-semi-sweet malts (honey and caramel) quickly overpowered by a tidal wave of dank, citrus, and tropical hops. finish: incredibly bitter, chewy palate, lingering grapefruit, pineapple, and pine. notes: Lest I incur the wrath of the commentariat, Ill just say it wasnt for me. Too far out of balance for my tastes. Big, complex, and well done, just wouldnt try again. More for the rest of you! Can courtesy of Derek at Beerble study.
