Picked up a growler fill at Got-Ta-Go in Chambersburg, PA. Poured into a mason jar that I got from the wedding we were at this weekend. No glassware at the hotel.
Appearance: This beer poured a two finger head that reduced to a thin layer and left some nice lacing on the glass. It is a nice copper color with good clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Caramel and toffee, fruity, a little booze, citrus, and grassy hops.
Taste: Same as above with the hops a little hidden behind the sweet malts. A little bitterness in the end, but mostly balanced.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, low to medium carbonation, medium to full bodied, a little dry, and a little tingly bitterness.
Overall: Pretty solid DIPA here folks. So happy to get this growler filled while traveling through PA.
Serving type: growler

Pours a barely translucent copper-bronze with decent layer of sustained head. Unfortunately, I don't get much in the nose, but it does seem a little malty (dark sweet).
The barely perceptible to me nose does come through in the taste. A butterscotch malt sweetness that does have some fig-like flavors, maybe some quite subdued cherry flavor. The feel is decently carbonated, but I agree with other reviews that this is lacking any real hops bite. It's not that bad a beer, average I'd say, but it doesn't quite hit DIPA style I like.

I wish this bottle was fresher. There is no date on the bottle or label but judging by the labels this is supposed to be a hoppy lil bitch. Instead its deep and rich but all malt. The pour is a beautiful cloudy amber color with a thin tan head and very decent lacing. The nose is sweet and malty with caramel and toffee notes. Flavor follows suit and is very rich but also very sweet. I'm sure that this is not how this was meant to taste but it is what it is. Very good but not what I expected. Should be a lot better.
