COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This DIPA is a bad ass. Straight up. Its hopiness isnt just limited to the floral nose or lingering bitterness but a full hop flavor all the way through your palate. We bitter with a Super Alpha, and follow it up with a few flavoring additions throughout the boil. A massive dry hop of Simcoe and Amarillo create a huge aroma profile that really comes through in a big way.

hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy light gold color with a thick sticky head. Nice grassy aroma with notes of fresh cut grass and orange citrus. Straightforward DIPA flavor of lemon, orange and grapefruit citrus with the malt base subdued so as to keep the profile light and crisp. I prefer this approach to a good DIPA. bitterness is medium strength and fairly well balanced. Good carbonation with a refreshing palate. Very tasty. I look forward to trying more of M.E.s brews

Oscbert (1289) - Lincoln, California, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Strong hoppy grapefruit and lemon citrus aroma with tropical fruit also like pineapple and mango. Bready malts. Hazy golden amber color with small white disappearing head. Citrus hop flavor, grapefruit and lemon, malty alcohol sweetness. Resinous hop. Full bodied, sticky feel, medium co2, lingering bitter hop finish with slight sweetness. Enjoyable hoppy beer. Good one for the hop heads. Not completely over the top. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Towey1989 (2568) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Can at The Leeky Tap, Leek. Pours a slightly hazy deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, mango, passionfruit, grapefruit, some pine, a hint of pineapple, slight caramel, a little bready malt and subtle herbal hops. Taste of orange, passionfruit, mango, resin, some grapefruit, a hint of pineapple, slight caramel, bready malts and subtle herbal hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A long, dry, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. A lot of hops! Citrus, resin and slight herbal aromas and flavours with a caramel and bready malt sweetness throughout. Very good, up there with BooKoo.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear straw body. Aroma is bright mango and pineapple, some pine in the background too. Taste is super pine bitter with some hits of tropical fruit sweetness. Texture is thicker. Enjoyable.

mcberko (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
On tap at Mother Earth, pours a clear bright golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out ample piney hops upfront, some hop resins, and light caramel bready malt. Flavour is bold, with lots of resinous hops, some pine and sticky caramel malt. The balance is a bit rough, with the malt and hops not perfectly melding. But it works well enough. Good.

On tap at APEX. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A big fruity resin nose. Fresh hops, resinous tropical sweet dominant hops, some toasted malts. Quite clean. Lovely. Big beer.

On tap at mother earth brewing Nampa. Pours out a crisp golden topped with a white head. Nose is great hop hit nice mix of fruit and malts. Taste is more of the nice citrus hops and a well balanced malt bill.

October 3rd, 2016 - Ensconced up in a corner of Escondido, Mother Earth has joined in the hoppy fanfare with its cousins just a little way to the south, serving up hoppy delights like this one, the Hop Diggity. Soupy and the color of a homemade cider, it looks like the product of agriculture wrung out at harvest season, with a nose full of dry straw, grass, hay and a touch of orange peel. The flavor is more boldly hoppy, but not dank or weedy. The grass notes hit the flavor too, inflating in the mid-flavor with a huge grassy finish, and just a little pineapple for sweetness.

blipp (9007) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 9, 2016
Can. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity citric hop base, mild moderate bitterness, very low sweetness, a bit of pine, and a nice crisp hoppy finish. Not nearly as boozy as many IIPAs.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Latest instalment in the ever-diminishing Christmas selection crate series, courtesy of Cousin Matt. Clearly not entirely clear but diaphanous orange with specks of unfiltered particulate scoring an instant bonus in my book. Heady overripe tropical fruit aroma with melon, dragon fruit and blackcurrant over something cheesier and more elemental with sappy pine, curry leaf, green stems and Triple Sec. Heady and perfumed with bags of honeyed orange liqueur sweetness overpowered by swaying canopies of tropical fruit, pineapples amongst them. Proper slightly biscuit-scented pale IPA malt letting the resins sing and waft- not all sickening Crystal. Blackcurrant, Jelly Tots, too much cordial and Fruit Salad chews. Keeps on giving with flowers, Cointreau, Murray Mints and menthol. Fragrant. But not for pussies. Cali IPA as it should be.
