superspak (5006) - Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2016
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, 2016 vintage bottling. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, lemon/orange zest, light pine, honey, light caramel/spicy rye, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, lemon/orange zest, light pine, honey, light caramel/spicy rye, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/citrus peel bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, lemon/orange peel, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 8.5%. Overall this is an excellent DIPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A really delicious offering.

TheCaptMatey (211) - Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Poured a light copper colour with a fluffy white head that left thin lace. Aroma is sweet bready malts and tropical fruits accompanied by bright citrus and herbal hops. Flavor is mango and peach with a moderate grassy hop bitterness that provides perfect balance. Medium bodied with a slightly chewy mouthfeel. Surprised how a strong DIPA can be so sweet and drinkable. Just a great brew.

From a bomber. Pours a dark yellow/light copper color with minimal head and almost no lacing. Aroma of papaya, citrus hops, slight nail polish, grass, and malt. Taste is the dull light fruits like melons and papaya, slight bitterness, and grainy malt. Light body. Fairly easy drinking. Average to above average DIPA. For the price, better options.

hayduke (5032) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2015. in the tasting glass a copper orange color with a white head. The nose on this is powerful with a lot of tropical fruit and and can get mango, pineapple, and stone fruit. Some citrus as well. Medium body with a resinous mouth feel. . The flavor is dominated by the fruit and now stone fruit is in front with lots of either peach or apricot.This finishes with perfect citrus bitterness making this delicious and easy to drink for a DIPA.
