look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours murky amber with a brown shade to it. There's a one finger eggshell head.

S - Tropical fruits, not much else to me.

T - Slightly sweet with a hit of pineapple.

M - Light to medium body with medium carbonation.

O - Not a lot of hoppiness to it. The score had me thinking it should be better. To make. To be fair, I'm not sure how long it's been sitting. I did pick it up on vacation and don't see a bottle date.

1pt 6oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Hazy light golden with an orange hue. Medium sized white head. Tight bubbles leave a generous portion of lacing.

S - Citrus, lemon, lime, pineapple, mild grass. Husky grain malt. Hinting some alcohol.

T - Hops come across more earthy or grass-like than citrus. Still some lemon flavor. Malt is throughout the whole flavor with a not-so-subtle nuttiness to it. Big on flavor yet modest on bitterness.

M - Medium to medium-full body, short of medium carbonation, semi-dry.

O - Didn't expect this beer so cloudy as I was careful to not wrestle yeast on the pour. Good aroma and flavor albeit not so traditional. That Golden Promise lends a solid backbone. Hops were light and lent too little of bitterness. I also thought it could have had a drier feel to it.

On tap at Falling Rock. Nice light orange and gold color, good 1" of head on it which didn't offer much in terms of retention, but did have above average lace impressions on the side of the glass I wasn't drinking out of.

Aroma was hoppy, not decadently hopped, but not short changing anyone either. Good muddled citrus notes, couldn't tell you what was really hitting me, just a swirling of hops in the citrus vein.

Taste, pretty easy drinking, hop flavors beyond mere bitterness. Alcohol is there, but not a problem drinking it. Would say the citrus flavors are starting to lean tropical at this point. Malt mouthfeel gives an old toffee impression that was a distraction from the hops. Orange, mango and toffeee are a little weird, I would think caramel instead, but oh well.

Pretty good stuff, solid second tier dipa.

22oz Bomber into Tulip
No obvious date

A – Nice and hazy, bright orange with a fluffy thin head that leaves nice lacing. The lack of clarity on this is actually kind of nice.

S – Nothing over the top here, nice citrus notes and a little bit of a pine background. All on top of a lightly sweet malt base.

T – Somewhat sweet, citrus comes through first, with some orange and lemon notes. Then leads to a piney undertone and finishes with a nice moderately sweet malt foundation.

M – Well balanced for a DIPA, smooth and somewhat creamy. Very enjoyable. Nice crispness to round it all out.

O – Very solid, not over the top on hops or malt. Has nice orange and citrus notes, but nothing too deep or complex. Worth trying.

On-tap, 22 oz. pour

A: Opaque, copper body. Thin soapy head with excellent lacing.

S: Hops with some lemon/orange. Malt pokes in a little. Not a huge presence of alcohol.

T: Nicely balanced. Hop bite up front that's loaded with citrus. Reminds me a little of DC Brau's OTWOA, which is a good thing. Not sure if the hop profile is similar to Falconer's Flight, or what. On the back end, there's great malt flavors. Like just taking a bite of fresh bread.

M: Creamy, medium-bodied. For a 9% beer, it's very easy to drink.

O: Definitely will seek this one out again.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. No discernable date stamp.

A: A finger of creamy, tantalizing head. The beer is barely translucent, honey-gold, with noticeable effervesce. Good lacing.

S: Hops are soft (older bottle perhaps?) with a gentle malt base and hint of alcohol. Hint of pine.

T/M: Surprisingly creamy and sweet, shot through with citrus (lemon), and ends with a dry, bitter, undeniably hoppy finish. Fairly balanced DIPA, rather West Coast influenced, with only a hint of tropical fruit.

O: Solid, enjoyable, and recommended. Nothing to go out of your way for, but try one if you see it.
