From 01/18/14 notes. Had this on tap at The Jeffrey in NYC. $8 for a 14oz pour.
a - Pours a somewhat clear orange-amber color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of citrus hops, tropical fruits, fruity malts, grapefruit, bread, and grains. Nice nose, lots of citrus hops up front in the nose.
t - Tastes of fruity malts, citrus hops, lemon, grapefruit, bready malts, wheat, grains. Taste is good but much sweeter than the nose and less hoppy. Good taste.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Light bitterness but not too much.
o - Overall a good DIPA for sure, but after hearing about it and seeing the review on BA I was a bit disappointed. Great smell and a very good beer, but I think Dirtwolf is much better and would stick with that next time.
Serving type: on-tap

4.48/5 rDev +5.7%

A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is hazy yellow with a small whitish head. Nice lace.
S: Hops. Tropical fruits, grapefruity and perfumey.
T: Juicy hops over bread doughy malt. Hops bring to mind apricots, grapefruit, tropical fruit and lemons. Strong hop impression overall, but not mouth-bracingly bitter. Finishes with a nice balance of bready malt, grapefruit pith and lemony bitterness. Modest alcohol warmth noted on the palate but then felt in the belly.
M: Medium in heft. Carbonation is modest and soft. Drinks lighter than a beer of this strength should.
O: Really good stuff.
