Tap East. Keg. Light haze on this amber beer, small off white head. Smooth and silky palate, slightly viscous. Fine carbonation. Smooth and slightly sweet malt, touch of caramel. Big piney hops with lesser tropical fruits and bitter aniseed. Floral bitterness. Finishes smooth and semi dry with a moderate peel bitter linger. Solid but compared to some of the UK brewed DIPAs of late, the US aint always top dog anymore.

brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 17, 2015
On tap @ The Cellar (Whittier). I was honestly surprised that this is as pale as it is. Nice. Smells like pineapple juice and grapefruit. Some peach, light mango, and maybe some sweet malt. A touch of booze on the finish. Flavor is big on the pineapple as well. A little on the sweet side, but it works okay. Decent bitterness of citrus and some subtle pine. Not bad for a bottled, nationwide, high boost IPA.

mcberko (16005) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy blonde with a medium white head. Nose brings out wonderful floral hops upfront, with some pine and dry biscuity malt. Flavour matches accordingly, with loads of piney and floral hops out front - and only a light dry zesty crisp biscuity malt backing. Exactly my kind of IIPA: dry, piney and crisp. Wonderful stuff.

Bottle from Total Wine in Orlando, FL. Pours burnished gold with a creamy white head. Mozaic aroma. Lots of fruit. Med+ body. Flavor is light with a lot of tropical fruit and some citrus. Finishes hoppy and "smoothly" bitter. Excellent ale.
