Pours a deep golden orange, fairly clear. Little head.

Fruit and juicy, sweet and ripe. Faint caramel.

Very and sweet and juicy. Bitter hops in the back with a sweet fruity and juicy citrus blast. Malt is faint, hops are dominant.

Mild carbonation, wet and juicy body.

This is good and finished quick, no trace of alcohol.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured a cloudy orangish amber color with a large, lasting off-white head, leaving behind some pretty good lacing

S: Aroma is citrus/pine hops and caramel malt.

T : Fairly sweet caramel malt, earth, fruity notes, and loads of citrusy/piney/resiny hops. This beer also has a very prominent husky, grainy presence from start to finish.

M: Medium bodied, sticky, lots of IBUs, plenty of hop oils and flavor stick to the mouth

O: Very nice IIPA.

The Bruery tulip

A: Hazy deep orange color. Half finger fluffy off white head. Sticks around a while. Nicely carbonated.

S: Getting lots of citrus fruity hop character. But there is also a good aroma of sweet male balance. I do catch a touch of booze actually.

T: Tip if the tongue, hop bitterness. Not 126 IBU at all. It's that soapy-orange marmalade-piney flavor that is customary in DIPA. There is some of that caramel malt balance, some breadiness. Finish is dry. Don't taste the ABV at all.

M: Medium bodied. Mouth coating of hoppy notes.

Served on tap at Foothills Brewing Company in Winston-Salem, NC.

A: Pours a mostly clear bright golden orange in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall light beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit/orange and pine hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate amount of caramel malt sweetness with big flavors of citrus/grapefruit/orange and pine hops. Moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy with light to moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: A little too big of a DIPA to really be easily drank - there were some hints of the alcohol in the mouthfeel and just a touch in the taste. The beer was very enjoyable with really nice flavors and aromas.
