On draught at The Swiss, served in a shaker, Rude Parrot is a clear orange with a super tight, creamy off-white head that looks like it was poured with nitro, which it wasn't. Long lasting, it leaves nice foamy lace rings.

Smell is dank! This beer reeks like pot big time, that cat piss aroma you get from centennials.

Taste is pretty good, a bit of sweetness from the hops, mangos, and not overly bitter, but balanced. Not getting much malt character, although that suits me fine.

Mouthfeel is on the drier side, with a medium light body.

Drinkability is pretty good, a nice little citrusy IPA without much bitterness or malt heft.

Pours nto an imperial nonic a dull burnt orange color with a half finger head that leaves no lacing as it settles pretty quickly.Citrusy aromas with alot of orange oils present,a bit of caramel toast thrown in.Citric and even a tinge of booze for a smaller beer on the palate along with caramel and a bready base,not bitter in any way.A fruit forward IPA with a hefty doughy malt base,not bad.

12oz can served in a tulip. Pours an orange Amber color with a whit frothy head. Nose is floral, citrus and pine. Taste is much the same with some bitterness on the finish. A decent beer.

Big light tan head quickly falls and settles into a nice big lacing above a thick caramel straw colored beer.

Sweet caramel grain malts under a citrus and pine hops make for a very nice aroma.

Pine, citrus, and grassy hops taste with some of the sweet caramel malts coming through as well.

A dryish aftertaste with some sweet grains and light hops attributes sticking around with this medium bodied beer.

A pretty balanced IPA with some of the malt characteristics coming through but not overwhelming any of the citrusy hops that this beer harbors.

16oz CAN, great dane imperial pint

Read some nice things about this and reluctantly purchased a single - I really thought the DIPA (Ballz Deep) was more offensive as a beer than a name. Pretty cool can - really beautiful IPA too - glowing orange, sticky creamy lace. Smells of nice fresh citrus and pineapple - tastes mighty fine too, light and fresh without a bitterness overload. Bright tropical flavors - good stuff.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours medium coppery amber with a half finger slightly off-white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus hops and light sweet malt. Flavor of pine and citrus hops, light stone fruit and sweet malt. Finishes with citrus and lightly herbal hops. Very nice medium, moderately creamy body. A very pleasant West Coast IPA and the second enjoyable beer I've had from this local brewery (I really liked their IIPA even better.

There is nothing rude about this IPA. The beer pours a golden brown and smells like summer citrus. This IPA starts off crisp and slightly sweet on the palate, but the citrusy bitter hops catch up on the back end. This is a warm weather IPA that is made for a session in the sun since it doesn't have a particularly high alcohol content. Grab some if you have a chance, because you won't regret it.
