To my friend #mps, thanks for the howler. I loved this stuff.

Appearance - The beer was a coppery golden color. Since I was carrying the howler in a backpack, the beer was a little foamy when I opened it.

Smell - Sweet citrus is the initial impression in the smell with a mild maltiness in the background.

Taste - My first impression is the strong pineapple with orange and grapefruit lingering in the background. This is a sweet DIPA with the bitterness largely staying in the background. I had difficulty detecting the alcohol despite the high ABV. On might detect the resin a little more in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - For a DIPA, I thought this was fairly light. It coated the tongue nicely, but I did not think it was very thick.

Overall - This is probably one of my favorite DIPAs.

Huge thanks to Tony for this growler, fresh from the source.

Lacking proper glassware, I poured this into a Night Shift feku. Very attractive beer, golden color, good clarity overall with a slight haze, topped with a beautiful cap of white foamy head; excellent retention, and nice pillowy lacing. The aroma was dank and earthy, notes of body odor and marijuana, pine resin. It seems like a lot of people pick up citrus notes in this beer, but I really got nothing citrusy whatsoever, and it was certainly lacking in crispiness. The taste largely reflected the nose, very dank, wet, flavors of pine needles, pot, a little oniony, with a good dose of bready malts that I'd expect from an average DIPA. Body was about medium, clean mouthfeel, but again, not really crisp or fresh/zesty. Definitely a nice beer, and easily drinkable, but really nothing tremendous.

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.
