A - Light amber color with about a finger of white head that left a significant amount of lace and sheeting on the sides.

S - Lots of tropical fruit, mainly pineapple, with a bunch of citrus. There is some pine, and a little bit of mint. There is also some slightly unpleasant cat piss odor.

T - Taste is quite fruity, pineapple and some citrus. It's decently bitter on the end.

M - Fuller side of medium bodied, lower carbonation also makes it seem bigger than it is.

O - Out of the first run of Haymarket beers we had, this was the most enjoyable. Not spectacular, but a pretty good beer.

On-tap at Haymarket. Served in a 4oz taster glass.

A - Served with a finger of foam that settles to a thick collar and thin cap, with impressive glass-coating lace. The body is a lightly hazed light coppery color.

S - Big tropical fruit and citrus aroma. There's a solid burnt sugar malt backbone in the periphery and maybe a faint hint of alcohol.

T - The taste starts out quite nice, with a big citrus and fruit explosion. However there's an odd earthy, papery note in the finish for which I don't care. Nice well-attenuated but present bitterness lingers.

M - There's surprisingly heft and body to this beer, considering it's only 1% stronger than the standard IPA. Pleasant medium-low carbonation, and fairly smooth texture. Very dry and resinous finish.

D - I liked this better than the regular IPA. If they could get rid of that slightly odd flavor in the finish this would be a winner for me. In any case it's my favorite Haymarket offering at this point.

On tap at the pub, my favorite beer of the night...Pours a light cloudy copper, color is off for a dipa. Off white head that is really good, great lacing...Lots of fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, hops on the back, light pine. More a regular ipa, but I like it...The taste starts out with lots of sweet notes, pineapple again. Bitter hop finish, not typical dipa pine resin, again more of an ipa...Body holds up well, very smooth. Easy to drink.

Don't get this expecting a typical dipa. An above average ipa worth trying.
