Pours a nice clear orange with thin white head and heavy lacing. Nose is very heavy on the pine, resin, lemon, and grapefruit character. Taste us heavy on grapefruit with notes if orange and lemon as well as grass. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. Overall, very nice hoppy dipa!!

Served on-tap at the Grumpy Troll. This pours a cloudy copper orange color with an off-white head. The aroma is a mixture of hops and citrus. The taste is smooth, rich, with a lot of hops mixed with citrus and caramel malts. Finish pleasantly dry. This is an all-around good beer.

Poured from bomber into CBS snifter. Served slightly chilled.

A) Copper with a little haze. About two fingers of off white head. The head quickly settles to a collar. A little lacing initially.

S) Malt sweetness dominates, with just light floral hops. This has a nice sweet tropical fruit aroma, which was quite appealing.

T) Good malt backbone, decent balance with the hops. Follows the nose, especially in regards to the tropical fruit. There is a bit of a grassy finish with some booze. The alcohol is pretty well hidden, but is more apparent with warmth.

M) Damn near full bodied, if it's not. Pretty smooth, and fairly easy drinking, even with the higher ABV. A bit of sting to it, but it settles well, with lighter carbonation.

O) Really, this is a pretty good brew pub imperial IPA. No complaints here. If you visit the Grumpy Troll, give this one a shot.

This DIPA pours a dark golden/light amber with a clingy white head. The aroma is moderately hoppy-some citrus and floral hops, nothing crazy, but still inviting. The flavor is moderately hoppy, mainly floral and a bit spicy with moderate toasty malts. The hop bitterness is high and definitely lingers into the swallow a bit. The carbonation and body are both medium. Overall a decent IIPA, worth trying if you are here, though the nose could use a bit of work.
