Growler sent by SubpoenaDeuces, thanks Alex!
Poured to a large Duvel tulip glass.
Pours a deep transparent rusty orange, an aggressive pour kicked up a good three fingers of white head.
The aroma is pretty awesome, tons of tropical fruit. Grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, apricot, and fairly light pine in there too.
The taste stays pretty true to the nose. Defiantly a nice dry west coast style IPA, the bitter sweet citrus rind is pretty prominent, I'm also getting a good amount of hop resin along with some pine in the finish (more pine in the flavor than the nose).
Great mouthfeel, the body is on the heavier side of light, with a fairly high carbonation. The big hoppy flavors really coat the palate and stick around for a pretty long time.
Overall a very nice beer, big, hoppy and dry, just as you'd expect from a west coast IPA.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - deep amber color, a bit darker than i like my dipas

S - pick up a lot of guava, lemon

T - follows the smell, pick up guava and some lemon citrus. Bitter

MF - medium on the body, nice carbonation and dry finish

O - it's a good dipa, stands out more for the distinct flavor and smell profile that you don't get in many dipas than it does for being a great dipa (if that makes sense)

Serving type: on-tap

4.03/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This wasn't brewed once. I had a goblet of it at the brewpub a less than two weeks ago. This review is from notes.

Pours a deep clear brass color with a bright white head that lasts the entire glass. Citrusy hops fill the nose. Bready malts and a bit of an alcohol kick also make themselves known. The taste is a robust mix of piney, grapefruity hops and caramel, cookie dough malts. Floral hop notes show with warmth. Alcohol spice is always noticeable but at no point becomes overbearing. A moderate carbonation and medium body allow the hops to coat my mouth. Pithy bitterness and herbal notes last a good while in the finish.

This is a balanced DIPA. Huge hop flavors meet their match with an equally hefty malt profile. Good stuff and probably a good introduction to the style.
