At the taproom, pours a clean golden orange with silky white head

Nose: cotton candy, pineapple, tropical fruit, orange. Fantastic

Taste: big juicy boozy orange and tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, guava) with some burnt sugars, floral sweet malt, finishes with citrus and candy

Feel: light-medium bodied, lush, slight booziness

Fantastic dipa, crazy fragrant nose and lush body with tremendous flavors

Bomber pour, cloudy peach color with a thick white head quickly reduced to thin white lacing. Aroma is subtle but pine with strong tropical fruits-- mango, and peach, with some dank notes. Taste is unusually sweet, very fruity -- mostly citrus and peach -- with pine flavors and a mildly bitter finish. Nice carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Not overly complex but very drinkable. Could have a few of these a week.

Thanks stillmatic2232 for the chance to try this one.

A DIPA with Mosaic, Simcoe and Centennial? Sign me the hell up.

Pours an amber orange color, with a one inch head that descends to an oily film on top, with a lot of soapy lacing.

Smells like pine, grapefruit, lemon, and some bitter alcohol.

This one tastes great, but is quite strong. The alcohol is present, but is a good flavor within the beer. There is a strong pine resin bitterness, lots of juicy tropical fruit flavors, a bit of cattiness, some lemon, grapefruit, orange, and mango, and sticky sweet malt behind it all. A big bruiser for sure, not particularly "complex" but incredibly tasty.

This one is medium bodied, with a sticky sweet mouthfeel, and a low amount of carbonation. Pretty drinkable, even with the ABV.

This is quite an excellent hop bomb, with a pretty righteous label too.
