Growler courtesy of jbruner. Thanks. Pours a light brown color with a big fluffy off-white head that has very good retention. The aroma is big and bold with fresh grapefruit, mangoes, peaches and some pine. The taste does not exactly follow the nose, there is a bitter grapefruit presence, but its really the malts that drive this bus. There is big rich malty character with loads of toffee, caramel, bread dough and some biscuit. Plenty of complex hops compliment the big malt character--I can pick out pineapple, grapefruit, melons and pine resins. The palate is full, smooth and viscous; but also a bit greasy. The carbonation is soft. Finishes medium in duration and a bit bitter-sweet. Overall: Very nice take on the DIPA, very tasty. Just wanna add that this paired most excellently with Reggiano parma cheese, unsalted almonds and Castelvetrano olives as nibble food.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with big fluffy head. Aromas of tropical fruits, grass, and some brett funk. Flavors are all tropical, grassy, yeasty, with some lingering funk.

Deep amber pour. Small off white head. No lacing. Nice resinous piney aroma. Malt up front, some piney citrusy notes follow. Yeast hint in the background.

Tap at Oblivion pours a clear gold. Big pine hop aroma with citrus notes. Clean malt, tons of pine and citrus hops. Really well done.

FunMikeG (25) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Weak and flimsy IPA. Doesnt hold up on flavor, color, or aroma. Nothing stands out as special here. Smooth, hoppy flavor. Slight citrus notes and goes down easy.

On tap at First Magnitude as a guest tap. Orange gold pour. This wasnt bad but just not something Id get again. Medium plus bodied, not the dank west coast style I love. Dryish bitterness. Meh.

A straight solid IPA. Amber colored with good lacing. Lots of grapefruit and floral notes in the nose. Solid body with nice bitter finish. Drinkable and smooth.

Pours a slightly cloudy orange golden amber color with a white head. Floral citrusy grapefruit pops in the aroma. Wet smooth mouthfeel. Tons of grapefruit a bit of tar and toasted mall flavors.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Proof Railroad Square ][ $2 ][ Flared Taster ][ 8.28.14 ]
>> Great off-white to tan lacing above a clear amber pour. Would prefer a lighter SRM for hoppy pale beers. Nose is salty, black tea, dried leaves. Taste is malty, piney, tea leaves. Mild acidic balance finish, mild oil, sweeter. More on the amber ale side than IPA.
