Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 3, 2015
4 pack at a reasonable price. Clear gold, ample white head. Smell is tropical and citrus fruit with a crisp malt backing. Taste is juicy hops of tropical and citrus of orange, mango, peach with a decently light body given the 9%. LIngering medium bitter finish with some sweetness that lasts on the tongue.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow; easy to end up with lots of yeast flakes in suspension if you’re not careful. Primarily a floral and citrus aroma; smells sweet, though not at all malty. Definitely a sweet DIPA. Tastes of indistinct citrus fruit with a heavy sweetness battling it out with significant bitterness. The sweetness sticks around in the finish, but the beer’s bitterness wins in the end. Medium+ bodied and a touch sticky; average carbonation.

12 oz pour, faintly cloudy yellow golden pour, with creamy white diminishing head, minimal lacing, there are tiny floaters almost like little bits of pulp, smells of juicy passion fruit hop nicely balanced with the right touch of unique bitterness, with a nice balance, taste is a bit mango and grapefruit with some tanginess, more juicy than carbonated, a bit like Hawaiian Punch, very nice and intoxicating, enjoyable, not to sweet

Paler yellow pour that’s is slightly cloudy, half an inch of white head, average lacing. Pungent hop aroma of floral and pine, honey/pollen is light. Soft carbonation, frothy mouthfeel, finishes slightly dry. Taste of honey, resin, and floral hops. Malt character is light and biscuity. Light bodied yet full abv dipa.

Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up pineapple and stone fruit hoppage over soft bread and lightly-honeyed malts. The flavor found bread and mango sweetness at the core with mango, pineapple, and lesser peppery hoppage around.. finished with citrus bitterness and a peppery alcohol kick.. tasty. Medium-plus bodied with good balance on the palate.. almost buttery-smooth on the middle.. nice one!

keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Very nice citrus aroma with a good deal of malt as a base. The look is very light Amber, like a macro lager with a thin white head. The flavor has the sweet malt base with the hops dominating. The finish is crisp and clean. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap - Pours clear golden with a white head. Nose is fruity citrus hops, a little onion dankness, and a good deal of dry yeasty malt. Taste is the same, with the malt pushing through on top of the tropical fruit/citrus hops. Well-carbonated with a medium body.
