Poured from a bottle into a snifter.

A very nice golden hue with a decent head that dissipated not too quickly. The aroma has a hint of barrel aged (even though it's not) with a hint of floral hops. The taste follows: a pleasant balance between malt and hops, with a lingering sweet grapefruit.

It's good to find another beer that I like from ABC which is local to me. I'll look for this one again as I'm becoming a fan of DIPAs.

AP: Murky orange, like 6 month old pennies. Decent thin foamy head with lacing that sticks the length of the glass AR: smells like caramel topped pineapple upside down cake. Over ripe tropical fruit, mostly mango and pineapple. TA: follows the aroma. Pineapple, mango and grapefruit predominate with some orange rind mixed in. Sweet bready caramel malts. Finishes with a nice sticky resinous bite. MF: sticky and oily. Coats but doesn't stick. OV: really good representation of a super fruity DIPA.

I picked up a single 12 oz bottle on lark when shopping at Sicilianos. I liked the label art and the name. No visible bottling date, or ABV, or IBU markings.

L: Pours a deep opaque amber color. Big head from a slightly aggressive pour. Lacing lingers through out the tasting.
S: A double IPA that smells maybe like a single IPA. I don't know, maybe my nose is off but I'm having trouble picking up any predominant smells. Maybe an understated grapefruit citrus, but that's it.
T: Nice, honey brewed, DIPA. Trying to be Lagunitas Maximus or Bell's Hopslam. Falls bit short. Very good, but not great DIPA.
F: Slightly sticky on the tongue, as expected from this style.
O: I would be interested in trying this one again. Maybe We'll try this one on tap on my next visit to the Big House.

Solid beer

Picked up at Beer Baron in Livonia, Michigan.

A - Pours hazy, dark orange. Retains a little bit of off-white head throughout the whole time. Laces the glass a little bit, though lacing did not stick. Not as much as their Buzzsaw laced the glass.

S - Smells sweet and malty. A bit of pine.
Tropical citrus smell. Pineapple/mango. Tangerine?

T - This is on the sweeter side of double IPAs. Juicy, tropical fruit flavors (I guess about same as the smell) from the hops and a sweet kind of caramel malt taste. Little bit of alcohol warmth, but the taste of it is mostly covered pretty well. While it starts off with a sweetness, it ends with some hop bitterness. It is fairly drinkable, although the sweetness may slow some down a bit.

M - Medium or so bodied. Oily/sticky.
Pretty good mouthfeel.

O - Pretty solid DIPA. Does a good enough job at living up to the "Mr. Delicious" name and fulfilling my want for a tropical (D)IPA. Good offering from Arbor Brewing, worth the try if you like this style of beer.

Poured this undated 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass. (reviewed from notes). The body was a hazy orange/amber. The dense yellowy head settled to a thick cap leaving rings of lace in the glass. Impressive.

The smell was of hard candy. Bready.

The taste was citrus and pine. Some alcohol was evident. Orange rind. Pretty malty sweet, but it does dry out in the finish.

The mouthfeel was somewhat slick. Oily. Medium to full bodied. Modest carbonation. A pleasant surprise.
