16.9 oz bottle, w/o freshness/bottling date info.

Hazed lighter amber, under a nice looking and long lasting off white head. Leaves well developed and ringed fine lace on the glass.

Fresh hop/citric nose

Biting citrus notes, super fresh and all over the palate. Quality DIPA. Well worth try

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has some hues of amber. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head.
S: Moderately strong aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—grapefruit seems to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has strong flavors of orange citrus along with a light amount of bitterness. No alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be enjoyable because of its strong aromas and flavors of oranges.

Pours a very cloudy bright yellow gold color with a nice 2 finger foamy off white head that faded very slowly, leaving great foamy rings as it went down and a layer on top.

Smell is like rubbing your nose in a grapefruit slice, giving off great fresh smelling citrus with lemon zest, orange, pineapple, mango and a wave of fresh citrus hops. Bright, airy and juicy, there are piney notes and apple skin mixing with caramel and a little graham cracker, but this is a hop bomb nose that smells outstanding.

Tastes of red grapefruit, lemon, tangerine and orange peel up front, followed by pineapple, mango, fresh wet citrus hops, starfruit, caramel, light spices like coriander and something leafy or herbal, pine cone/piney hops, grainy malts and a juice-like sweetness. Mild bitterness considering how juicy and fresh tasting this is, the 143 IBU's listed on the bottle don't come through nor does the 8.2% ABV, which is perfectly covered in the flavor.

Mouthfeel is light and smooth, with mild carbonation, a light body and a slightly bitter finish that trails off fruity and full of citrus zest. The finish is on the clean and crisp side, and the added bonus of the burp being fruity was a nice touch and indicative of this being a fresh local beer that was not on the shelf long.

Overall a damn fine beer, but a little mild for a DIPA. I hope they bottle this year round so I can buy it often since it was very smooth and extremely tasty. A high recommendation.

True IPA perfection

Enjoyed so fresh the hops were practically still green, out of their first run of bottles.

Literally mango nectar wafting out of the bottle. Huge stone fruit smell, like you're drowning in some garnier fructis. On the tongue, just the right balance of sweetness and bitter - the overwhelmingly fruity smell somewhat belies the taste - a good thing, as there are resultantly all sorts of hoppy nooks and crannies you can get your palate into over the course of this oh-so-decently priced bomber bottle (i got mines for less than 6 bucks!).

This holds it down miles better than any Stone bomber I've had out here in the last three years hands down. This is what a difference fresh local beer can make.

The bottle design was awesome as well, with some raised type that looked like it should glow in the dark.

Truly, a delightful adventure.

Do not sleep on this one.

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium honey in color with light amounts of visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and light to moderate amounts of apricot + orange highlights. The beer has a finger thick foamy white head that reduces to a very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical/mango, tropical/pineapple, and citrus/grapefruit hops over the top of grainy malts with a light amount of honey sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy malts with a moderate amount of honey sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavor of tropical/mango, tropical/pineapple, and citrus/grapefruit hops that imparts a light to moderate amount of bitterness which lingers for quite a while.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Very enjoyable, a really nice tropical flavored (and smelling) DIPA without too much sweetness and the alcohol is rather well hidden. Easy to drink and definitely worth grabbing if you find it.
