A nice DIPA, pretty balanced with some great hop flavors. Not too malty, the malt bill gives it some sweetness.

Should have checked the bottle date before picking this up. Marked September 2011. Ouch. Even with the age, this was enjoyable. Honey colored pour with a small eggshell head that left a spot or two. Aroma filled with caramel and toffee along with some bright citrus. Simlar flavor with no real crisp, eye crossing, or aggressive hops poking through. With age, it’s average. Fresh, it’s likely exceptional. Unfortunately, sampling the former. Will have to return to this.

bottle shared by some dude named "hammer." pleasant, bright kiwi fruit, pineapple, tangerine hop profile. quite fruity, but a juicy fruit, not a melony sweet dough fruit. taste is a dank, toasted toffee. bitter resin. slight booze. real nice. liked quite a bit.

Draft @ Yard House, Dedham, MA. Served in a pint. Excellent full white and lace real well down the glass. Nose is a ton of fruity hops, grapefruit, tangerine and citrus rind. Flavors of biscuit malt, grapefruit, light orange zest and light earthiness with a smooth, lingering moderately bitter finish. I like the flavors here. Maybe not enough bitterness for the killer hop heads but…. I really like the malt / hop balance. Glad to have found this on draft, real drinkable.

Cask. Pours a pale gold with minimal head. The flavors are not very pronounced. Mild flavor and low carbonation from the cask. OK but not great.

Light fruity hop aroma. Hazy orange color with a large white head. Sweet tangy hop flavor with not much bitterness. Light palette.

hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle… Cloudy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is of bready malts and fuzzy golden fruits with a hint of resin. Full-bodied and velvety with moderate carbonation. The flavor presents malty sweetness flanked by heavy, fruity bitterness and a touch of honey. Finishes bittersweet. Bottle courtesy of growler!

Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2011
My parents brought this one from Rhode Island, may have been on the shelf a bit. I say this because it smells and tastes more malty than expected, some of the hops have definitely dropped off. It pours golden orange amber with white head. The aroma has some perfumey hops and sweet malts. The flavor is similar, with a bitter but palatable hop profile on the backend.
