4.38/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured on draft at Morimoto's in Maui

A: Golden yellow with 2 finger white head. Moderate lacing. Steady stream of small bubbles rising the entire time.

S: Prominent citrus aromas including grapefruit, pineapple, lemon. Hints of pine.

T: Grapefruit. Bitter hops. A little bit of sweet malts. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. Alcohol content is nicely hidden and sneaks up on you.

M: Medium body and drinks with a nice crispness. Effervescent bubbles throughout. Slight dry finish.

O: Very nice DIPA. Perhaps my favorite Maui Brewing beer.

Serving type: on-tap

Bought a growler from the brewpub. At the brewery, we tried everything available and this was definitely in the top 3 (with CocoNut Porter and Red Cock DoppelBock). I like that the beer names include the beer style, it makes it easier to choose.

This is a pretty good DIPA, similar to the sweeter varieties but also includes a strong acidy grapefruit component. The alcohol is kind of easy to detect but it's really delicious anyway. I found this to be stronger in flavor and aroma than Dreadnaught or Ruination (classical standards), maybe it's closer to Hopslam or Stone 10th (new standards for me).

Enjoyed at Maui Brewing Co. brewpub in Lahaina in Sept 2010. On tap into tulip glass.

Appearance: pours a deep amber color

Smell: smells of hops but not over powering. Very similar to the DFH 90 min compared to 60....it gets milder and more sweet with more hops.

Taste: as mentioned, tastes like a 90 min DFH but maybe not as refined. Strong 8.9 ABV in this one.

Mouthfeel: drinks smooth. Doesn't over power the mouth with bitterness.

Drinkability: definitely would have again, but not something I would have more than one in a sitting.

Cheers.

This beer isn't retired.

Pours an orange-ish copper with a bit of a ruddy hue to it. Maybe half an inch of foam.

Smells like malt. Hmm.... surprising amount of caramel. Maybe a bit of more tropical fruits, and some sweet grapefruit, but it's a malt forward DIPA.

Taste is surprisingly muted in terms of hops, as the aroma led me to believe would be the case. Definitely more of a sweet, caramel-y, brown sugar-y beer, with some citrus and tropical fruits thrown in. Almost no bitterness to it, and I couldn't detect any pine.

Eh. Juicy, thick, but their big swell is a superior beer.

3.03/5  rDev -25.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

On-tap at Stone

A: The pour is a medium amber color with a finger or so worth of slightly off-white head.

S: Sweet tropical fruits and caramel malt, and that's pretty much it. Maybe a bit of sweet grapefruit, too.

T: For as sweet as the nose is, there's a very sharp bitterness to the flavor. There is also a lot of alcohol flavor. At least there are some good grapefruit, pineapple, and pine flavors so this isn't a total bust.

M: The body is medium and sort of syrupy for a DIPA. The carbonation is moderate.

D: Not much here that I find pleasing in terms of a DIPA. Too sweet and just hot and boozy.
