32 oz growler purchased at Trenton Road Take Out in Levittown, PA.
Poured into a tulip pint.

Appearance
Mucky brownish yellow with 1 finger of white head. Cloudy as hell.

Nose
Pineapple, papaya, orange juice, grapefruit juice, and candy sugar.

Taste
Grapefruit pith, orange citrus, and pine. Candy sugar and biscuity malts. Hints of pineapple, passion fruit, and papaya rind. Zesty florals and touches of onion linger.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, juicy, and semi-silky with a medium-light bitterness.

Overall
Solid IPA. Plenty juicy with a modestly light bitterness.

On tap at Bullfrog Brewery in Williamsport, PA.

This one pours a slightly dark orange, with a creamy, foamy one inch head, and a large amount of lacing.

This one has a big herbal and piney aroma, with some grapefruit, pineapple, and orange.

This one surprised me in how tasty it was. This almost tastes like a citrusy milkshake, really thick fruit flavor, with a good herbal and piney component. There is really no malt character noticeable here.

Like mentioned before, this has a milkshake-esque consistency and mouthfeel. It's not quite as thick as an actual milkshake, but it's definitely got a nice creaminess to it.

A really nice and well constructed IPA here.

Way too much of an onion bomb for me.

Like most Bullfrog offerings so far. Go there. Get the jerk wings.

Pale straw in color, Light-bodied and a tad wanting in the malt department. Dry and modestly hoppy. I would have pegged this as an IPA but certainly not a DIPA.

Aroma citrus, pine, orange, mango, faint resin & malt. Taste sweet malt, tropical fruit, light pine, lemon zest, & resin bitter finish.
