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.

Thanks to Justin for sharing this one.

The beer pours a nice hazy orange color with a nice creamy white head.

The smell and taste are good, but a little one dimensional to me. When I taste it I can only think it tastes like an orange cream sickle. It has a nice orange hop presence with the lactose like sweet malts, but really not much bitterness or hop bite at all. A nice feat, but really not too interesting after a while, a nice creamy feel though.

Not bad but overrated in my opinion. I agree with my friend starrdogg that it is too simple to be in the top 100.

Growler received in trade from Bencooper27, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a cloudy light golden color with a decent head and lice retention and lace. Aromas of citrus, pine, resin, garlic and a heavy dose of caramel and bready sweetness. The flavor follows the aroma but ends up a bit too much on the sweet malty side for my liking. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resiny mouthfeel. Nice enough IPA but seemed a bit sweet for a dipa imho.

Hazy amber pour from a growler.

Dank nose of orange peel, citrus, and pine resin. Could use a bit more "oomph."

Taste follows the nose in the dank path of hops. Slightly sweet honeyish malt character. Some residual sugar. Needs more hops to be a true Double IPA.

Cheers to Johnnnniee for sharing this hoppy treat from the Midwest!

On draught at the Lincoln Tap House, Bodhi is hazy pale yellow with a thin white collar that leaves scattered, light lace. The pale, cloudy stillness is formidable.

Smell is skunky, dank hops, a little yeasty.

Taste is big tropical fruits, mango. Light resin. All hops, light bitterness, dig it!

Moutheel is a little weak, a bit flat, but with a sharp, mineral dryness.

Drinkability is solid, very much in my style, just could have used a bit more time in the bright tank.

Growler pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
