12 oz. bottle thanks to Rob B. Labeled under the “Chill wave” name. Color is orange with a golden hue, some retention. Aroma of tropical fruit and earthy hops. BelgianBeerGal (4068) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Lightly sweet, malty presence upfront with the tropical fruit hops followed by hints of resin, and a dash of sugar sweetness. Finish has light earthiness with the alcohol making itself known. Medium body with light creamy carbonation and a lightly sticky texture.
Overall, a very sweet for a DIPA that still has a balanced bitterness that doesn’t overwhelm the palate. Well made
Sample draft at JJ’s as Chillwave. Orange brown color with a frothy tan head. Fruity hop aroma. Big bold hoppy pungent taste but not over done. Very good. Bold but still very drinkable. kambei70 (1075) - - MAR 23, 2014
2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a light copper color with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is big tropical fruits, particularly papaya, with some dankness and cat urine. Taste is a very sweet candied tropical fruit with a grassy and piney bitterness at the end. Not much malt taste to speak of. The bitterness stays on the tongue and has an unpleasant astringency. A medium, well carbonated mouthfeel.

355 mL bottle - as Chillwave. (bb 05/06/14). Copper with a thin whitish head. Lots of hops in the nose - floral and citrus (lime). There is a hint of sweetness there as well. Very appealing. Big body and flavour, with citrus and resin from the hops, some caramel, and a really interesting bittersweet finish. spencerchris (2) - - MAR 22, 2014 does not count
