Had on draft at 50/50 slaters SD on 4/2/14 in a tulip

A-Pours bright gold with a creamy white head. Great lacing.

S-Lots of dank citrus in the nose, grapefruit, a bit of grass.

T-Medium to big sweet flavor with lots more dank, well ripened citrus fruits, mango, grapefruit, papaya, grass, orange.

M-Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming and resinous to finish with lasting dank hop character.

O-Overall a great DIPA. My first one in SD! Went well with the burger! (487 characters)

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep clear orange. Small white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Lots of deep caramel malt. I really don't get a lot of hops. I guess it's Nelson hops, but it's really indistinct.

Taste - Sweet tropical hops. And then lots of sweet caramel malt. Astringent alcohol. Sweet finish.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium heavy.

Overall - I don't know if this growler didn't do so well, but this isn't very good. Other Rip Current growlers I've had have been quite good, but not this one. (531 characters)

Consumed at the brewery tasting room, April 20th, 2014.

Beer is a clear medium yellow with a creamy, fine, white one-finger head.

Aroma is dank, earthy and fruity (guava).

Flavor is sweeter than expected; some crystal malt flavor. Tropical fruit note. Significant bitterness on the finish.

Medium-bodied. Astringent on the finish.

As double IPAs go, pretty middle-of-the-pack. (381 characters)
