5/5 rDev +13.6%
A: Poured out of a bottle into a tulip glass. Poured a hazy golden orange color with two fingers of off white head. A beautiful beer.
S: Huge hop aroma. Smelled like pineapple, citrus, and some dank pine aroma. great aroma to this brew
T: The taste follows the aroma. Pineapple, citrus, and pine. Great flavor from the hops, I wish I knew which ones they used! Bitter, but not overwhelmingly so by any means. The Maris Otter malt lends a bit of sweetness in the finish.
M: Very smooth, medium bodied. Not overly dry like some West Coast IPAs. medium carb to accentuate the hop flavors.
O: I consider this beer in the very top tier of DIPA's. I've had Pliny, and to me, this is just about the same level of quality. Just crazy good.

4.75/5 rDev +8%
12oz. bottle poured into an IPA glass.
(A)- Pours a golden yellow orange hue that produced a great head of frothy white. Great retention and lacing left behind as well.
(S)- Huge bursts of orange and pineapple citrus meets some mellow but present bitter pine. Very subtle straw-like sweetness at the end. Lovely
(T)- Quite similar to the smell. The same great orange and pineapple citrus, but with a little apricot-like citrus and sweetness to it in an underlying role. Subtle pine bitterness that helps balance it out. Almost has a touch of an earthy quality to the background.
(M)- A great carbonation level and balance to this. The burst of citrus is phenomenal in combination of the supporting characters this puts off. Not overly bitter which I thoroughly am happy with.
(O)- Another simply superb beer from Dan at New Glarus. No other brewer gets me this excited to try each new release they put out, because simply put, each one delivers and leaves a great impression on me. That, and with all these high-priced bottles out there, you cannot beat the prices

4.35/5 rDev -1.1%
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber/golden color with an impressively robust head that leaves a few strands behind
Smell: An explosion of citrus and tropical fruit, rich in pineapple and grapefruit with a hint of orange
Taste: Shortbread malt lays the backbone for the tropical fruit and citrus parade, bringing pineapple, grapefruit, orange and papaya; after the swallow, the malt bill builds in intensity though it never quite reaches the level of the hops (that's a good thing)
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation and some boozy warmth
Overall: With one fell swoop, the Careys have thrown down the gauntlet to show that New Glarus can brew a DIPA with the best of them
Thanks, WI-Beer-Man, for the opportunity
