3.68/5  rDev -3.4%

12oz can poured into a pint glass.

S - Pine, mango, sweet tangerines, faint catty resin.

A - Medium sized light tan head holds a cap of rocky foam. Very hazy and a pretty dark amber. Spotty lacing.

T - Loaded with toasty malt early and most of the way through. Citrus hop flavors play the largest role in balancing. There's also a level of earthiness in there. Finishes with a little spicy blend of hops and alcohol.

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

O - Wish I could gather more of this IPA. To my preference, I like an IPA with a sturdy backbone and this one is maybe a little too malty. I liked the unfiltered look, even some hop debris floating.

2.9/5  rDev -23.9%

12 oz can. Pours a hazy amber tea color with a small white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is surprisingly muted - a little pine and tropical fruit.

The flavor is sweet caramel biscuity malt with a decent amount of bitterness in the finish. It's not very flavorful hoppiness though - a touch of fruit and some pine. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and pretty watery.

Overall, a bit of a disappointment given their DIPA.

3.64/5  rDev -4.5%

Appearance - out of a can I cannot see much, but having had this on tap it pours nicely

Smell - nice citrus notes with a great malty backbone

Taste - lots of malt for sure. Not much littering from the hops with just a slight floral note to it.

Mouthfeel - pretty easy drinking beer.

Overall - nothing special, but still a very drinkable IPA

4.06/5  rDev +6.6%

A small off white head quickly dies into a very thin lacing above a thick unfiltered particle filled IPA.

Citrus, light pine notes, light grasses, and an even light yeastiness all in the aroma of the beer.

Big citrusy to piney hops in the taste of this IPA, seems to be less of the west coast style in the taste then there was in the aroma but this is not a bad thing. A very easy drinking citrusy IPA style of beer.

A dryish citrusy aftertaste on this medium bodied beer.

I have found my favorite Dry Dock beer, well until I get the chance to visit the place and do their sampler anyway.

Served cold in a pint glass at the brewery.

Hop Abomination 9 is a hazy copper color with thin white head. It leaves behind a nice layer of lace as it settles.

Aroma is super hoppy and fresh with big citrus, especially grapefruit.

Flavor is very intensely hoppy but not overpoweringly bitter. Pale malt base with a little caramel provides the backbone for a huge hit of fresh dank hops.

Mouthfeel is medium light bodied and perfectly carbonated.

Overall an excellent extra IPA.

Cheers to SteveO fo this one!

Pours a hazed apricot with a thumb of cream colored head. Good lacing & above average head retention

S: Pine & faint breadyness, plus orchard fruit

T: Pine, lemons, breadyness & pears up front. Some peppery & woody hops, a kiss of caramel & dryness as this warms, plus some grapefruit. Finishes dry, fruitty with grapefruit & woody hops

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, good balance

A pretty good AIPA, was hoping for better from these guys

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, lots of fruits. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, fruity, dry at the finish and tasty. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Bought at Little's liquor and wine

A&S: Very sweet maltyness (similar to a double ipa), fruity hops (passion fruit, mango, pineapple). Very hazy dark orange colored beer. Off-white head with pretty good retention and lacing. Lots of unfiltered specks riding the lively bubble current.

T&M: Lots of citrus in the taste. Very heavy on the malts. Not super complex. Taste holds on a long after the taste is a sort of negative way, super malty. Medium to full body, medium carbonation.

Overall: For being pretty highly malty, its still very easy to drink.
