4.23/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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!

Serving type: on-tap

3.04/5  rDev -25.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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.

Serving type: growler

3.64/5  rDev -11%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: on-tap
