Drank on tap at the brewery and took home a growler.

A: Slightly hazy, apricot/caramel color, one finger of head, good lingering lace

S: Moderate fruity malt character, floral notes, tropical and citrus fruit notes, fresh hop

T: BOOM goes the dynamite of tropical/citrus hop flavor, some bitterness, both outdo the malt character, booze is there throughout but not burning

M: Moderate carbonation with a nice, fading bitter finish, nice coating, not too thin

O: What a treat. I have had most of their beers, particularly IPA's and I was not expecting this. The immense fruity hop character in both the nose and taste put this beer in a very desirable profile for me. The balance of citrus, bitterness, malt and booze are nearly spot on.

I will be back to get his on tap and would seek it in bottles. It was pretty easy to drink through the third one, could not have had a fourth in a row. Not sure about the classification, would think this is a DIPA.

Serving type: on-tap

Growler filled yesterday at Cable Beverage in Rockland county NY
Pours hazed typical almond amber. Creamy medium khaki head that lasts nicely. Leaves a fully developed collar, extensive low and high sheeting and a fine bubble film. Nice looking beer.
Pungent pineapple/grapefruit fruity/citric nose. Nice and makes me look forward to the first sip
Not dissappointed at all...more of the pineapple/grapefruit theme going on strong here. Citrus fruit, now including a hint of lime, passion fruit and ripe melon. Full throttle IPA (DIPA @ 9%?). nicely hop presence, but not at all bitter, resiny or piney....just citrus and tropical fruit....very nicely done....
Def the beer beeer I've had over the years from Defiant - worth seeking out - get a growler or a pint if you see it available

Serving type: growler
