Nose is on point with this DIPA, all tropical fruit and such. The palate gets a bit sticky as it goes, with a surprising bitter/boozy punch as well. It's headed in the right direction, though, and I think, with a little fine tuning, could be a really strong beer. Knowing Bottle Logic, I imagine they'll continue to tinker. (323 characters)

This beer was expensive for a 22oz DIPA bomber. The aroma literally smelled like cat piss. I've never experienced this before with any other IPA. I am quite certain that I will not be having this one again. (206 characters)

Out of a bottle and into tbe baby Almanac snifter.

Like that moment when you ring the door bell of a first date after meeting her during a drunken Saturday prior.

And....

Meh. Not ugly, but not what you hoped for. And smell and taste follow suit. It's not a bad date, but it just wasn't what you were hoping for. A bit too bitter, too flat, too bland.

Next!

It warms...

Getting better. But Raul still isn't tripping. (422 characters)

Bottled 05/06/14, 10% ABV. Hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Centennial & Columbus.

Appearance: Clear, polished copper body with a clinging white head.

Smell: Big fruity hops - stone fruit, tropical fruit. Floral notes. Fairly sweet as well, but not excessively - the malt accentuates the fruitier aspects of the hop profile without contributing much actual grain aroma. This is on the verge of being too malty, without crossing that line; instead the malt is complementary to the hops.

Palate: Juicy apricot, pineapple, mango; just all-around juicy. On the sweeter side, without much bitterness, yet the malt is reigned-in just enough that it doesn't come across as cloying. Medium-bodied, perhaps leaning toward full. It's an easy drinker for the heft. The substantial malt backbone does a great job of highlighting the fruitier aspect of the hop bill. Thankfully there's no grain character here, or astringency from the crystal malt.

Overall: My first beer from this new brewery, and I'm pretty impressed. Looking forward to trying more from them. (1,047 characters)
