32 ounce Howler/Growlete/whatever you guys call it.

I've had this on tap before and liked it. Not enough to review but now it's time. Coming to you guys live, what do I think of this beer! I pour this brew and its outstanding! WestCoast sunset body with a touch of white cloudy skies. Deep and brassy! Looks like I am going to enjoy this brew.

Now I smell my prey before me! Huge citrus hits first that reminds me of Grapefruits and ripe tangerines. A tropical vibe going on in the middle with tropical fruit and flowers. Very nice and refreshing. The backend there is notes of cedar and resin. Nice hoppy touch.

Taste test time! First hits the palate with citrus, Tangerine and Grapefruits.Flows through a touch of tropical fruits mainly Passion Fruit and a subtle Papaya. Which leaves a dank resinous hop flavor that dominates the aftertaste. The malts are sweet with a crackerish touch. This finishes semi-dry with a clean, lingering bitterness. The feel is medium built on the palate with mellow fizzy carbonation.

Overall: This is probably one of the better DIPAs to come out of Central Baltimore. It's firing on all cylinders yet it seems a bit restrained. It wants to be great, yet not adventurous. I Would drink this daily if it weren't on Rotation status. I can't wait until they can this brew. This brew is clean, balanced and on the verge of being raw. This brew is Recommended!

Had on tap at Max's during BBW 2013 (from notes, 10/23/13).

A: Light, blonde copper.

S: Excellent and interesting hop profile. Strong smells. Good sign.

T: Full on hop bomb. All pine with a fine subtle aftertaste.

M: Light and full.

O: This is a great IPA and it won Max's blind-tasting for a dedicated brewery tap line for 3 months. Local and fresh.

Excellent Double IPA, enjoyed a couple of months ago at the White Oak Tavern. Local Baltimore brew enjoyed at the end of Howard County Beer week.

A) Coppery appearance with orange tints.
S) Fruity aroma. Jacewg nailed it when he said it smells like Enjoy By. That was exactly what I said when I tasted it.
T) Taste also similar to Enjoy by, hoppy with hints of fruit.
M) Medium body and carb.
O) Excellent DIPA, will be looking for its return

On-tap at The Big Hunt, Washington, DC

A: The beer is clear amber yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose, along with some notes of tropical fruits.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the tropical fruit flavors are stronger and stand out in front of the citrus. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has lots of tropical fruits in the taste. It feels a little heavier in body compared to other double IPAs and seems like it could use some more hop bitterness to help balance things out, but it masks any traces of alcohol.
