Pours a cloudy brown with a large off-white head. Aroma is hops, pineapple/tropical fruit - beautiful. Taste is mellow pine with an easy bitter finish. Tried to find the tropical fruits in the taste, but couldn’t quite do it. Still, it’s a good DIPA!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... RBWG 2013... Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is restrained, but does provide gentle notes of biscuit and toffee. Medium-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is nicely bittered - citrus rind and pith mingle nicely with pine and resin. Lengthy, bitter, rindy finish.

On draft at Pinglehead. Pours a hazy copper color with an off-white head. Nose is some light caramel, big piney hops with some light citrus. Flavor is an assault of bitterness with caramel, citrus pith, and piney hops. A bit of booze in there, too. Big DIPA. Medium in body and lingering bitterness into the finish. Interesting.

On tap or as some call it, draft @ the brewpub .. . deep gold tan .. medium foam, light lacing .. . deep dried grass and thin spruce . . not all that bad .. . . Finally, I rounded a bend and there he was stumbling towards me, wild-haired and one-gloved and nearer hysteria than I have ever see a grown person.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent red brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was hoppy and Irish Red malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of Irish red malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
