Canned September 20, 2015. This is a sticky, dank beer. I get lots of orange and tangerine - the malt is fairly heavy, I would not call this a west coast style double. Hoofhearted is putting out some amazing stuff.

Poured a hazy orange, with only a smattering of foam. It's got some staying power though. A blast of tropical fruit hides the fact that this thing is 10%. It's easy to down the whole deal before you realize whats happening.

Maybe I had a bad can. I get the pine and some of the tropical elements, but I got a big malty sweetness, especially on the nose and the finish. I'm basically with the other reviews except for the nose and the finish (yes, that's a lot of it). I'll probably try to get this one more time. On top of all the other reviews, I just find it... sweet in a unique way.

This brewery has churned out some impressive beers during its short existence, and this one is no exception. I would put this beer up against the best Vermont has to offer; nothing in Ohio compares. It has officially replaced Bodhi as the #1 DIPA out of the state of Ohio in my humble opinion.

This pours a beautiful orange with a thick, fluffy white head. The nose is very powerful, with loads of tropical fruit, a touch of pine and the dankness you can smell from a few feet away. The taste starts with just the right touch of bread notes, which are quickly overpowered by the citrus notes - predominately grapefruit. The finish is very bitter, and it lingers. The mouthfeel is a touch too thick, but I suppose that is to be expected from a 10.2% DIPA. Speaking of that, the alcohol is very well hidden and will sneak up on you quickly. This is definitely something I grab a 4 pack of every time it is made available.

Overly malty. Reminded me more of an esb. ABV too high.

1 PINT can
Served in tulip glass

This beer pours amber in color with golden highlights. It is topped with three inches of creamy white head that leaves plenty of lacing.

The aroma is citrus, featuring grapefruit, with a healthy dose of malt.

The taste has lots of citrus flavors with alcohol and some malt.

Surprisingly, creamy and smooth.

I wanted to like this beer more than I did. I am hoping I will love it on tap since the taproom with be a half hour away. It had more malt in the flavor than I would have expected. It was good, but I have had few Hoof Hearted beers and loved Wangbar. If nothing else a four pack will kick you ass!

Very citrusy, light on the booze DIPA that really packs a punch you're not expecting. Dank, resiny aroma. Basically exactly what I want in a DIPA, hoping they can maintain this type of consistency with future batches.
