COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At over 100 IBUs, Therapist is surprisingly easy to drink. Big, bold hop aromas and flavors of citrus, tropical fruits and pine are bracketed by light malty sweetness that does not overpower. A healthy addition of wheat in the grain bill adds to the body and mouthfeel.

joeneugs (6324) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 2, 2013
On Tap at Tap 25. Im growing very fond of this brewery. I dont think Ive every had a bad beer by them. This one pours a clear gold with an off white head. The aroma is stanky and spicy with mild caramel and tropical fruit sweetness. The flavor is dank, spicy onion, only a hint of caramel on a full, oily palate. Nice finish. Great mouthfeel. A touch more aroma would have put this over the top.

VinegarStroke (412) - Napa, California, USA - FEB 12, 2017
22oz bottle: Light amber. Light head and lace. Its lifted. Very fresh hoppy nose. Maybe a little too resinous. Orange zest. The palate seems a little lean and very bitter. Its dry and so the bitterness seems a little extreme although probably on style. Another solid West Coast DIPA.

Big malty and hoppy starting off. Wildly bold like an ex with a vengeance. Sweet bitterness toward the back end. Easy to drink considering the ABV...beware.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Mar 2016 - Bottle share at Canary Wharf as Dust Bowl Therapist, 10.4%, with thanks to therapist theydon. Clear dark yellow, still, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is toffee, caramelised orange, dense honey - sickly sweet vibe. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is again very sweet, caramel, pine, spicy hops. Not bad, but sweeter than I like.

A hop heavy beautifully smelling and looking beer. Lacks the complexity I would have expected but a refreshing beer - especially given the hops. Citrus and pine balance well. Impressive craftsmanship. Bottle from a random liquor store in union square area of San Fran. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
