On tap at Other Half, pours a cloudy golden with a medium white head. Aroma brings out dry piney hops and biscuity malt backing. Flavour is creamy, with tons of piney hops dominating, followed by biscuity malt. Super creamy mouthfeel. Fantastic depth to this. Another fantastic IIPA by these guys.

On tap at the brewery. Poured a mostly clear yellow color with bubbly white head. The aroma had some funk to it with lemon and spices. The fruit flavors hit you first with citrus, passionfruit, and gooseberry, before you get some earthiness to finish it off. The feel is very effervescent and crisp. I like the hops used in this DIPA. They give a very complex profile to the flavor, not overpoweringly juicy like some of the big names out there but impart enough flavor to make their point.

Tallboy can thanks to Eric. Poured a cloudy light straw body under a pillowy white head. Body is super delicate with soft carbonation and no trace of heat from the 8.5%. Aroma of tropical fruits, pineapple, guava, mango and toast. Flavor is a bit dry throughout, old dry grass, toast, tropical fruit rinds. Solid stuff here.

On tap at the source. Pours a almost clear orangey gold, white head. Aroma is floral, skunky, pine, caramel, light booze, mango, stone fruit. Flavor is much of the same, fairly sweet but not losing the balance. Not my favorite hops but pretty cool.

Thanks to Tunga for this fresh brew! Un liquide jaune paille coule dans mon verre et l’embrouille comme si la bière avait été poussée à l’azote. Une large mousse se forme en surface et meurt après de longues minutes sans laisser de vestige de son passage sur le verre. Nez où le fruit côtoie le gazon. Des arômes de fruits tombés non loin de l’arbre et dont le lent processus de fermentation s’est mis en marche dans l’herbe mouillée de rosée. Une pomme. De la poire. Des fruits nordiques et non tropicaux. Texture soyeuse agrémentée d’une amusante effervescence en fin de bouche. Des saveurs à l’instar des arômes: fraîches et fruitées, le tout sans me rappeler les Antilles et les cocktails tropicaux. Les houblons employés me sont parfaitement inconnus et je suis malheureusement incapable d’associer chaque facette du profil aromatique au houblon qui lui correspond. Ceci dit, l’ensemble est parfaitement harmonieux. Sans être d’une grande complexité, ces houblons se complètement très bien. L’ensemble est frais, fruité et tourbé, bien plus aromatique qu’amer. L’alcool se fait bien sentir mais la bière se boit tout de même drôlement bien.

Pounder can. Poured a muddy, murky yellow color with a smaller sized head. Citrus, dank, and tropical fruitiness.

16oz can at a tasting. Spice and berry, apparently gooseberry but definitely fruity sort of character to it. Solid body as to be expected from these guys to let the hops shine through. Extra points for the body and malt bill.

Tasted on 9/18/16 from a 16oz can purchased at the brewery. Pours hazy deep yellow with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thick, sticky lace. The nose is very delicate, but really unique, with a touch of cinnamon and baking spice with very berry forward fruit aroma, fruit tea, pleasantly herbal. The flavor is jasmine tea providing some bitterness, red berry fruit, and very light baking spice. The body is medium with a lightly oily texture, average carbonation, and a long jasmine tea bitter and hint of red berry finish.

Poured a light orange with a white head. Aroma was of oranges, grassy, light melon. Flavor similar, clean and drinkable.
