Bomber into mug.

A...clear golden with a bright white, fluffy head.

S...not as pungent as I would like in a dipa. Some light grapefruit, pine and yeast.

T...sweet, bready malt up front. Turns into a pine resin and finally lets a small amount of hoppy bitterness shows up.

M...feels thick and resign like. Could maybe use a little more carbonation.

o...this is a very pleasant brew. I would like a higher ibu in a dipa but, I would delicately buy this again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Clear gold, good head.

Smell: Weighty citrus, grapefruit with a lot of sweetness behind it.

Taste: Very tasty, sweet base followed by fruits--citrus and pineapple. Not bitter.

Comments: I had this several years ago on tap in Phoenix, and was thrilled to see it in bottles in Illinois. Wasn't quite as mind-blowing from a bottle (not sure of the bottle's age) as on tap. Still very tasty with a delicious mix of fruit flavors.

12 oz bottle poured into DFH IPA glass, 1 month fresh.

Pours a golden, light amber clear body with a soapy head of good retention and lacing. Stunning color on the body.

Smell is of tropical fruits, orange peel, alcohol esters, sweet candied malts, and pine resin.

Taste is similar to the nose - a big beer with a lot of malty sweetness and noticeable alcohol. Fruity hop flavor and moderate bitterness attempt to balance the beer but come up a little short. Lingering sweetness and a little bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, great carbonation, smooth, sticky, dry finish.

Overall a very solid DIPA which is year-round and available in 4 packs, great choice if you like sweetness without over-the-top IBU. Very easy drinking and warming. Not my favorite, but I've enjoyed it multiple times and will continue to enjoy.

bomber into tulip. relatively fresh stuff considering my location on the opposite coast, bottled on 11/19/12.

A: crystal clear body. bright copper hued. big frothy bright white head. retention is great, frothy throughout. spotted chunky lacing left behind.

S: big time pine. citrus as well. a combination of kiwi, lime, and mint leaves. caramel undertones keep things in check.

T: plenty of hops starts things off. super piney and resinous. bitter throughout. certainly hoppy, but there is a definite balance between grain and hop here. the grist is dry, there is even a slight rye flavor in there. lingering hop flavor with a bit of bitterness into the finish.

M: ample carbonation, I know this body is full, but it really drinks like a medium.

D: plenty of hop flavor, while still remaining to have balance. super tasty. go get some, get it free if you can.
