Picked this up at Brewers Haven Boise a week or so ago, but now most of the Geek places have it on ... cool.

22 for about $8 ... poured tonight into my CC Teku... short lived white head and only decent lacing... nice clear orange brew.

Nose is sweet and bitter.. pithy citrus and a bunch of pale maltiness... fruity hop bowl is reminiscent of papaya, guava and perhaps strawberry.

Bitter up front but a pretty heavy residual maltiness moves in quickly.. tropical fruity hops and some floral hops magically grow wings and move the ABV into the more drinkable realm.. mango and lesser melon, I am impressed.. Bigger ABV and should be enjoyed cool and allowed to warm up... The hops really morph as the temperature changes.. Very well done DIPA.

All 3.75

Just popped the top on this one bottled in May...it is now August so 3 months old.

First thing to note is the aroma while pouring....sweet Tropical fruit and ..berry notes.
Pours a beautiful amber color with a nice thick white head that relatively quickly turns to a fine lace on the edge of the glass.

Aroma in the glass consists of more big tropical fruit and berry. a touch of piney resin but not much. Hard to believe this is all hop imparted.


on the pallet.... flavor is sweet, blueberries are my first thought, then pineapple and mango. resinous pine finish. the high alcohol is very present in this bottle. As it warms a sharp booziness appears on the tongue with a bit of heat in the belly as well. The 11+% of this beer is defiantly present in this one. 121 IBU is more than my normal "comfort range' but the bitterness is not seems to play well with the sweet berry and mango flavors.

Mouthfeel is thick and bit syrup like, I think i would like a touch more carbonation to help lighten this beer.

Overall a fairly good beer with an amazing aroma but just a bit boozy for my pallet.
