A pretty clean DIPA, not a whole lot of hop but enough. Solid amount of malt and sweetness with a good alcohol finish. A wee bit heavy on the stomach.

Nice golden color with a thin head. It’s got a hint of the tropical flavors.

Not outstanding but more than do-able

Try it

Picked up a single from the Kings Beer and Wine fridge on 10-21-17 for $2.89. Canned on 9-13-17; refrigerated since purchase.

Beer poured golden with a very nice white head that had some good hang time.

Nose was a light touch of citrus.

Taste was a huge malt baseline with touches of citrus, pine, and melon. Finish had no residual bitterness.

Mouthfeel was medium to heavy bodied and pretty smooth.

Overall a pretty solid beer but the malt bill did not showcase the hop profiles as much as hoped.

Pours cloudy and golden. Head is off white. Nose is typical of an ipa as was the taste. Prefer more resinous flavors that offered. Much of the taste I received was bread. Not great but good.

A decent double...I have had better...it looks great! Frothy head, beautiful lacing...was lacking in the nose department, which is very important for me. Taste was good, feel is excellent...but lacking the nose/taste that fits the looks.

A solid DIPA. Great looking pour - significant head - hazy gold - real good looking beer. Smell is what I expected - citrus -but a hint of breadiness. Taste is solid, yet not distinctive. I wanted a more bitter beer with a richer flavor that matches the hefty mouthfeel. The beer is weighty in mouthfeel. Solid and would definitely choose it over most on a beer menu.

Golden, lemon up to the light, with lots of carb rising, and 2 fingers of white foam, that lasts. The aroma is tropical, fleshy, citrus, and a bit bready. The flavor is, again, fleshy, which is new to me. Lots of citrus and tropical flavors, and bready malt. The feel is well carbonated, medium full body, and dry. Overall, it reminds me of a suped-up Racer 5 IPA, + the fleshy parts. Nice stuff.

Pours a straw yellow with thick head and sticky lacing, loads of carbonation. Smells of hops, citrus, pine. Tastes very nice, dry hoppy beer with interlacing of citrus and dry grapefruit. A very nice DIPA, light to medium feel, very tasty.

Picked up a single at Total Wine in Las Vegas. Can had a couple months on it, but was still a solid brew. Would like to try again fresh
