Quite excited for this one. Robots.
A-Pours a hazy vibrant orange color. Bubbles incessantly rise and meet at the top where a puffy off-white head sits. The beer laces excellently leaving chunky spatter on the glass.
S-Potent herbal nose. Incredible orange and grapefruit aromas. This is a big boy beer, you can tell just from the smell. I get an almost onion-like scent which is surpring but it does not deter me. Overall, smells complex and super citrusy.
T-Big, bold, and assertive. Super-complex. You get huge citrus flavors throughout. Juicy grapefruit and orange. Good wallop of pine in here as well. You also get some potent herbal green flavors. I definately get some greep onion tastes. Grassy and oily as well. Resionous. Tastes natural. This beer is hop-foward without a doubt. Malts are there but are clearly not meant to steal the show. Love the unique flavors and the beers complexity is exceptional.
M-Medium bodied. Dry and decently bitter as well. Bubbly carbonation. Resinous.
D-Alcohol masked very well. It has that nice oily quality that I believe all DIPAs should have but it is not too bold. Very drinkable, considering how flavorful the beer actually is.
So happy to find this in a CT liquor store. I suggest you give this a try. Delicious.
This beer was absolutely at its peak on tap. I have had varying levels of excellence from the canned version of this beer. On-tap and fresh is blatantly and obviously where its maximum potential lies. Magnificent.
Perhaps the best median for this beer. The explosion of citrus is extraordinary. Simply amazing. Cask is the way to go for this beer. One of the best experiences I have had with a beer.

Best DIPA ive ever had...plain and simple. Aroma is extremely tropical with beautiful pineyness. Pours a sticky white lacey head with dark tangerine color. Basically flawless beer in my opinion I just wish they would produce more of this beer in CT!!! Today I filled up two growlers and every time I am simply amazed

This poured as expected for an IPA with a thick amber hue and an ivory head of dense foam.
The nose is thick and sweet with fruity hop character. I catch strong grapefruit, tangerines and apricot with tones of honey and rye.
The flavor is dry, bitter, herbal, vegetative and floral. None of the sweet fruit hops was found on my palate but instead I taste a more raw hop personality. The malt backbone is a tad unorthodox as it does not give off a sweet caramel but more a dry rye or grain.
The feel is exceptionally dry a bit bitter with no astringency and a simple ease.
For a style that has been beat to death this gives a different perspective as the malt used has a different taste and feel.
