COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Issue a small craft advisory: this South Bay Bessie-inspired brew unleashes a beastly hop attack amid torrid tropical flavors.

It pours dark gold with an off white head. It has aromas of pine and some biscuit. It has flavors of pine, hints of citrus, and biscuit. It has a moderate body and is sharply bitter. The bitter finish is long lasting.

Meh...Description begs for something more bitter and hoppy but is more on the malty sweet side. Wasnt impressed with this offering. You can taste the alcohol also. Would not buy again.

Reddish, golden pour with moderately dense white head. Rich (malty) and piney nose. Moderately bitter with biscuit at the outset and malt at the end. Malty, slippery mouthfeel with moderate fizziness. The finish has some bitterness, but tends toward the malty. The description led me to expect something much stronger in flavor with more prominent bitterness.

Clear orange body white head some lacing. Sweet hoppy fruity bubblegum resin aroma. Taste it rich only slightly bitter but really nice and flavourful. Really unique and nice double IPA.

Strong, but not overpowering. Pine and resin, grapefruit and hops. There is some floral note, plus a light bitterness, but the finish is long and rolling. Pretty good.

On tap @ 3 Cellars, Franklin, Wisconsin. High alcohol content is undetected. Pineapple, koogin, and a bit of pine. Some grapefruit in the backdrop. A lovely pour. Very nice!

bottle. hazy orange. sweet overripe peach aroma. flavor has notes of stonefruits and pineapple with some residual honey, grainy, malt sweetness. somewhat low bitterness with deeper hop flavor. doesnt strike me as 9.1%. an enjoyable beer thats different from the typical dry west coast version.
