As part of a trade where I brought the Matt and Coldponcho brought this growler. I proceeded to drink half of it, despite there being more than 2 people :)

Pours a dark orangey color that suggests a malt profile. The nose is big tropical hops, citrus goodness, medium malt body and resiny pine. Tum. Tropical citrus (orange, pineapple) and dank pine hoppiness on top of a moderate malt base. This beer is crazy good. So drinkable that I would likely drink too much before I knew what happened. Good carbonation, good medium body. Not too much of a sugary mouthfeel like you sometimes get with IIPAs. Overall, this beer is really, really good. I would like many more growlers of this. Yum.

Thanks to Biglobo for this one!

Pours a half finger of white head. Really nice lace rings. Color is a clear golden orange. Solid.

Aroma: Dank and hoppy. Cascade hop flavor. Light onion notes. Not to fruity, but a little shows. Very solid.

Taste: Very dank and weedy. Again, a cascade onion touch shows. Grassy and floral. Straight up hops. No malts.

Mouthfeel: Bitter but smooth. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends sticky, but clean.

Overall, a really awesome beer. Very drinkable. Top notch dipa. I could drink a lot of this in a night.

On tap at Toronado

A: Golden straw color with peach hues. There was a small head that hung around for a second and left some spotty lacing.

S: Dank, dank, dank. Dirty passion fruit, mango, and papaya. There is just a flood of hoppy goodness that completely dominates the malts.

T: More of the same. Loads of dank tropical fruit flavors followed by a crisp dry finish. Sublime.

M: Medium bodied with some palpable viscosity from the hop oils.

O: My favorite DIPA to date. Can we please get some Alpine brews on the east coast!!!!
