Poured into a Kane tulip from a growler acquired in a trade with bencooper27. Thanks again man!

A- It pours a very pale straw color with a decent sized white head that recedes somewhat quickly, leaving spotty, but distinct lacing.

S- The aroma is a straight grapefruit and tropical fruit bomb! Some other citrus comes through with fresh squeezed orange, tangerine, and loads of lemon verbena. A hint of caramel and pale malt balance it perfectly! Amazing nose!

T- The flavor matches the nose almost perfectly. Definitely more grassy/lemony flavors coming through, but this is balanced with sweet citrus and caramel malt. There is also a good bit of mango and pineapple, with a touch of passion fruit.

M- The mouthfeel has medium thickness, moderate carbonation, and goes down smooth. Another dangerously drinkable DIPA at 8%!

O- I am so happy to have had the opportunity to try this, and I will need to get this again! One of the best DIPAs I've had!!

A -pours a hazy orange with one finger of white head. Decent retention with great lacing.

S - Big citrus hop nose with some pine as well. Grapefruit and some tangerine. Slight biscuit malt presence. Very good.

T - This tastes fantastic. The hop presence is big, but not harsh or abrasive. Very little malt, but just enough to give a little body. Similar to smell there is mostly a citrus hop presence, but I get some pine and grass as well. A bit resinous. Fantastic.

M - Medium mouthfeel with a nice bitterness throughout. Lingering bitterness, but very pleasant, not overwhelming or insanely dry.

O - This is one of the best DIPAs I've had. Definitely a hop showcase, but also somehow restrained in a really excellent way. Wish this was available near me.

Growler to Travel bottle....=)
8oz to GI Chalice

App- When I popped this one into my chalice it was a nice medium colored orange. Maybe a touch of gold intermixed with a lighter yellow center. A small bit of bubbles was there but didnt leave much cling. A bit flat from going growler to travel bottle to glass.

Smell- When I took of a whiff of this it did have a bit of flat malts behind it, but at the same time a good balance of some strong mango and other tropical fruits. A little bit of pine as well to round out the back.

Taste- A well rounded DIPA. Had a nice balance between the thicker malts and then a stronger fruit flavor than the nose suggested. A good hop bite but still a little flat from the travel. More malty than I wouldve though with still a nice pine..

Mouth- A fairly solid medium body and due to lack of bubbles a creamy medium carbonation level. A bit buttery feeling but thats okay. I get where they were going with this. Residual tropical fruits. A touch of pine as well.

Drink- I don't normally ask for travel bottles of DIPA's but trying to tick the top 250 calls for some skill and friends to help out. Thanks again Matt. Appreciate this tasty treat while away from home.

Poured from a growler into a Bell's tulip.

A- Golden Straw color. Minimal white head from growler, light lacing lingers through the glass.

S- Sweet pine and citrus smell. Very tasty smell, maybe a slight malt aroma in the sweetness but mainly bright citrus. A little light but really nice.

T- A very Nice balance between pine & citrus. Some resin qualities with the bitterness. Alcohol is hidden nicely, wouldn't know its 8.5%. Very reserved but big flavors at the same time. You could really taste a lot without it overpowering your senses, which was really nice.

M- Light mouthfeel, lower carbonation. Light bitterness that follows through with a light lingering bitterness. A nice crispness with the bitterness. A little sticky and coats the mouth nicely.

O- A very good beer. Excellent example of a DIPA. Perfect balance of big hop juiciness with just enough malt to support and bring out the hop flavors.

Orange in color with thin white head. Aroma is pine and orange citrus. Taste is citrus bitter hops with some pine at the finish. Very smooth and well balanced. Good body, really sits on palate. Body is a little thin but it doesn't distract. Could drink this everyday.

On tap at The Daily Growler in Upper Arlington, OH.

Pours a hazy yellow, with a one inch head and sheets of lacing down the glass.

Smells include citrus zest, tangy grapefruit, sweet and juicy orange, pineapple, apricot, and peach. Just outstanding smell, jumps out of the glass with fervor.

The taste is just incredible as well. Went down way too quick, despite all the flavor jam packed into this DIPA. Strong orange pineapple and grapefruit flavors, keeping it a little bit sweet, then the resinous pine slaps you across the face, makes it presence, and holds you in. Quite bitter, even more so as the beer warms up. The bitterness mixed with the juicy hop flavor is perfect, prototypical dry pine/citrus style IPA. Pretty dank flavor here, methinks.

Medium bodied, incredibly, there is no alcohol flavors. Drinks like a pale ale, hits you with flavor like a DIPA. Dry finish, warming, crisp mouthfeel.

Amazing stuff here.

The beer comes in a hazy golden yellow color.

The aroma offers big tangerine, passionfruit, ripe apricot, peaches. A bright Citra aroma with no malt to speak of.

The flavor follows tasting of pure grapefruit zest. A smack of spicy floral of lavender and hints of eucalyptus and grass hit on the middle as the beer dries out towards a slight herbacious note.

A hugely floral DIPA that could be mistaken for a treat from Shaun Hill of Hill Farmstead. A large hop presence that sticks to the teeth, leaving hop residue and flavors lingering.
