Nomber. Poured medium golden with a creamy, well-retained eggshell head.. nice lacing. The aroma picked up a whole helluva lot of mango, with pineapple and peppery rye also showing.. loved it! The flavor found sweet tropical fruit and biscuity malts at the core.. juicy mango, pineapple, black pepper, and rye around.. lots of tropical fruit bitterness and rye on the long, belly-warming finish. Medium-bodied, juicy, and engaging on the palate.. great stuff!

bytemesis (7435) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle - thanks Jeremiah! Pour hazy golden amber with a large creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. A lot of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is wonderful grapefruit, a bit of pine. Flavor is about the same, plus a noticeable spiciness from the rye. Lightly sweet, light to medium bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer.

JaBier (7289) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle sample at the beer vs. wine tasting at Aficionados on 2/23/13. Pours a clear, yet chunky gold to amber color with a thin off-white head. Malty sweet nose with notes of spicy rye and hop. Malty flavor with spicy rye character and oniony hops in the finish.

jackl (7166) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Scopey! The pours light amber with a small head. The nose is grain, breash grass, orange peel and rough tropical undergrowth. Fruit salad sweetness. The taste is big tropical fruit salad - papaya and mango. Pineapple. Sticky sweet. Nice malt body cut by a sharp bitter finish. Fresh. Big body, awesome. Overall, a nice, hot & sweet DIPA.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle shared by nuplastikk: pours a clear bright golden with a stringy lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny hoppy nose with some light malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and sweet light caramel with lots of fresh hop flavor and resiny bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

22 ounce bottle. Lots of carbonation in pour. Urine like aroma. Big bitterness and high alpha hops. Pretty intense and bold. Slight malty character.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Had this on draft while stopping down for gas and a new barrel aged offering on sale. Excited for this one after the success of its little brother in my book. Pours a well hazed orange amber hue, some deeper clear orange sunset edges and bottom strike well, the body more hazed, with a cakey offwhite head atop as a firm yet smaller layer. Aromas are richer bitter fruit hops of melon and grapefruit, white grape and florals. Gumball, oranges, dancing in and out with sweeter tropical fruit aromas. Some rye, bready malts, and grainy malts but this is a melange of hop flavor in the nose. Touches of grass, pineapple, and lemons waft in. Initial is medium bodied, giving just a girth with an incredibly rich bitter hop flavor up front. Fresh and vibrant, this beer preaches fruity hops, florals, melon and grapefruit up front. Straight grapefruit juice, pine, florals. Touches of tropical fruit are more mellow than the nose. Pine, lemon, grass and florals bring a nice strong resiny bitterness. Middle is bitter and grapefruit citrus. Pine and florals, dry and bitter. Touches of bread, fruit, and cereal malts. More fruity melon, kiss of gumball, white grape and tangerine. Moving into the backend this one offers firm bitterness, citrus, tons of grapefruit. A gentle kiss of heat at times, but what could be just strong bitter rich hop oils lingering on the palate. Fruit, gumball, oranges, and florals. Grapefruit juice, as the fruit and strong citrus flavors really stay throughout this one. I havent loved a lot of FFFs new IPAs/DIPAs lately, but this one is a winner. Remiscent of Ryed Da Lightning, but stronger, more intense, richer hop flavors. Fresh and vibrant, good bitter dryness. Very nice beer here. Get at it soon, the fresher the better Id think.
