Poured on tap into a Crowler, consumed two days later.

A - Pours a dark orange color, semi-hazy, and has a generously thick, bright white lacing ring. Looks very inviting.

S - Nothing but sticky, juicy, and aromatic fruit: passion fruit, apricots, red grapefruit, peach, mango papaya, pineapple. The smell is just as inviting.

T - Follows the nose: Passion fruit, apricots, peach, mango, papaya, lime, mango, and pineapple with a pine bitter finish to offset the sweetness. There is a touch of peppery spice to the hoppy fruit. The ABV is not detectable so much in the nose but it really hits the senses on the first few sips.

M - Thick and slippery.

O - This is an outstanding D-IPA. I want more.

Served on draft in a wine glass.

A: A deep golden/orange hue that's slightly translucent.
S: A hint of citrus.
T: An explosion of citrus up front that slowly fades. No booziness at all.
F: Very smooth and delicate.
O: This is another great double IPA from Pizza Boy. Gives no hint at the 10% ABV and super drinkable.

10 oz pour from a firkin.

appears hazy golden-orange color, nice white head. very nice hoppy aroma - a pleasant mix of citrus and earthy hops. just enough biscuit - flavored malt to hold up the big hop flavors. thicker mouthfeel for an IPA, I like it.

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.

A - Pours clear golden yellow with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving thin sheets of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of fresh cut grass, pine resin, mild tropical fruit, bit of sugary sweetness and some very light booze. Hops are moderately strong but never border on overpowering.

T - Starts off with some grassy hops and mild sugary sweetness quickly being joined by the dulled tropical fruit, pine resin, dash of chewy pale malt and a touch of booze. Finish has some bitterness and sweetness to it with some lingering dryness.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Hoppy, sweet feel from start to finish. Only the faintest hint of the 10% ABV is present.

O - Despite the 10% this one is definitely on the lighter side of the DIPA scale. It is well balanced but I wish it had a bit more pop to it. Either way a solid DIPA.
