4.13/5 rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Partial, counter-pressure filled, marked 12oz bottle from an anonymous contributor...split with my brother into tulips.
A: Opens with a hiss, which is good considering the bottle is just over halfway full...clear golden color with big bubbles.
S: Big big tropical fruit component and a decent amount of citrus and super-fresh pine needle; in fact the pint is really nice on this one, and that is not usually something I'm a huge fan of. Slightly sugary malt backbone. Pungent.
T: Hop-driven here as well; tropical fruit basket, peach, mango, pineapple, citrus, orange peel, some pine, sugary/bready malt undertone, and pungent.
MF: Medium feel with moderate bitterness; this beer leans fruity instead of puckeringly bitter.
O: Really nice, remind me a lot of Lagunitas Sucks and other big tropical, malty double IPA's.

3.94/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Had on draft at Lures on 7/2/14 in a short wide mouth glass
A-Pours cloudy amber with a decent off white frothy head that lingers long and leaves excellent lacing.
S-Aroma is pine, grapefruit, sweet floral and citrus hoppiness.
T-Taste is heavy sweet, with grapefruit, honey, and pine with a light malt.
M-Average carbonation, medium body, slick texture and a long sticky finish with overtones of grapefruit and honey.
O-Overall a decent DIPA a great blend of hops and malt that hide the 10%.
Serving type: on-tap

3.61/5 rDev -4.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A: deep orange/amber - darker than I would expect from a DIPA; 1 finger head that receded quickly to a thin film; nice lacing;
S: floral and tropical fruit - pineapple and grapefruit;
T: not what I expected from the nose - earthy; not a lot of bitterness, but more than what I would expect from 10% ABV; the alcohol is there, but muted;
M: on the heavy side of medium bodied; moderate carbonation;
O: enjoyable, but a little too boozy for my taste;
Serving type: on-tap
