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.

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!!

4.33/5  rDev -4.2%

A-Cloudy yellow orange, some carbonation with a one finger head

S-Good deal of hops, mainly citrus and floral. Tad bit of grass and pine

T-Sweet, very citrusy, some floral notes as well, has a tad bit of grass and pine as well. Some bitterness, could have more though. Nice balance though.

M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, hop resins.

O-Needs more bitterness, just adding a little bit more in terms of bitterness would make this a great beer.

The beer pours a cloudy orange amber with a whispy white head tha laces. The nose is a mellow sweet citrus with a touch of tangerine. Potent hops and malt sweetness dominate the hop profile and drink with a perfectly refined, floral/citrus hop profile that leaves a lingering green tea bitterness. Medium bodied, sweet, generously hopped and carbonated, and has a lingering grainy citrus. This is a highly drinkable dipa, which reminds me of rpm. Definitely hit the the brewery when your in town.

A- Pours a hazy golden orange with a bright white head. Head has pretty solid retention, turning into a ring of bubbles around the edge and leaves some really nice layered lacing.

S- Getting crushed by tropical fruits, a touch of pine and maybe a bit of bready malts. I had to look really hard to find them.

D- Tons of tropical fruits and a lot more pine that I picked up in the nose. Has a nice bitter bite to it as well. I like this.

M- Medium in body and a good amount of carbonation.

O- Very nicely done. I'm really digging this. Tough choice to pick between this and their IPA.

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.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad

A: Dark golden color with a one finger cream colored head and ridiculous lacing. Near perfect.

S: Tons of citrus and pine hops with a big dose of resin thrown in. Pretty fantastic.

T: Very citrus hop forward with some pine notes coming in on the finish with a huge hit of hop resin. Lots of grapefruit and grapefruit pith throughout. Tasted more like a single than a double to me, but I really enjoyed it.

Pours a beautiful hazy golden color along with a big white head. Sticky lacing lasted well throughout. A sweet malty, hoppy and citrus fruits comes through very nicely in the aroma. The citrus and malty flavors were amazing – fresh hops, tangy grapefruit, and piney. Medium bodied and decent carbonation throughout. Overall, this was a fine example of a DIPA and one that closely resembled a Three Floyds Dreadnaught / AleSmith IPA meets Three Floyds Zombie Dust type of beer. I would love to get my hands on some more of this beer!

64 OZ. growler
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is a hazy yellow color with a couple inches of white head.

S - The aroma is sweet tropical fruit. There is also some juniper and pine in there.

T - The taste is full of tropical goodness. I get mango, pineapple, peach, nectarine, and just enough pine on the finish to cleanse the sweetness from my palate. It tastes like fruit cocktail with a pine finish.

M - Medium with biting carbonation.

O - This is probably the easiest drinking DIPA I have had. It has all the flavors that I love in an IPA, citrus and tropical fruit with just the right amount of pine. I have been fortunate to try this on multiple occasions and finally was smart enough to take a growler home. This just goes down too easy.
