Nice golden/orange pour with nice frothy head; Beautiful bouquet of tropical fruits, and tropical fruit bomb taste; fairly smooth mouthfeel; gorgeous lacing over the newly developed IPA glass. Hides alcohol level ridiculously well! A must have for IPA junkies!!

Serving type: growler

3.83/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Served on tap at Pinocchio's Pizza in Media, PA.

A: A hazy honey-like hue with a 1 1/2 finger slightly off-white head. Head retention is a bit weak and not much lacing is left behind.

S: Lots of tropical fruit notes. Pineapple and mango, namely. Lots of grapefruit aroma melded in as well, with a little bit of grassiness and earthiness underneath.

T: Some bready malts upfront with a bit of mango seeping through before being overrun by the grapefruit characteristics of the hops. Lots of floral and grassy notes underneath it all as well. Finishes a bit citrusy and piney. Lots of standard flavors, but the mesh in a rather unique way, if I can be honest...

M: This brew was a bit on the full side, which made it kind of a chore to drink at the bar... Lots of creaminess to be found with a subdued carbonation. Normally this is a texture that I'm quite fond of, but I prefer my IPAs and DIPAs to have a little bit of a bite and crispness to them, and I didn't find it here.

O: I'd feel like I was lying if I called this world-class, but I'd also feel like I was doing an injustice if I didn't give it the praise it deserved. It's a complex brew with some great flavors that drinks decently, even though it has a bit of a clunky body. It might be better to sit at home and have a bottle of it whilst relaxing, but I didn't find myself enjoying it too much at the bar. Perhaps a re-visit will result in a better impression.

Serving type: on-tap
