This is a killer. I like a little bite in my IPAs but this one is smooth and it is exactly fitting for the flavors. I just wish I could find it more often in Cleveland.

Sampled on tap at The Barrel & Bottle, Columbus, Ohio. Attractive golden color, with a thick white head that leaves lots of spotty lacing. Nice hit of citrus on the aroma. Light biscuit, orange, lemon, grapefruit, citrus zest, some floral notes, and a little pine resin round out the flavor profile. A little sweet, a lot of bitter, with a dry and crisp finish. The big question is, where is the alcohol? It is very well hidden in this dangerously drinkable brew. Well done!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Chill haze light amber-apricot with a creamy, milky white blanket that clings in curtains.

Smell is orange, lemon, grass, dank cat, weed and a little rubber.

Taste is quite a complex lineup of floral, semi-bitter orange rind, lemon rind, grapefruit, Smarties, graham cracker, biscuit, apple, and gummy bear.

This is actually soft, smooth and fluffy, with a dry finish.

Grave is like a lighter version of El Lupulo Libre or Hop Juju, which is odd, since it's significantly stronger.

Poured from a growler into a Teku glass
A: Burnt orange color, no head
S: Floral, citrus and mango
T: Full of hops, mostly toasted citrus peel along with tropical fruit, a bit of pine and light malts
M: Full-bodied but the alcohol is well hidden. That being said there's next to no finish, everything is very short on the palate
O: A good DIPA that would be great if the flavors had a finish

Nice cloudy gold color and good head with lacing on the pour. Nose very understated. Taste unusual floral flavors with sweet hints of honey that wrestle with the bitter finish. Also, a pronounced effervescence.

This is a strait delicious beer. Pours a pale golden color. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits. Flavor is juicy passion fruit and citrus. Has a nice clean feel with lots of hops. Overall a delicious DIPA.

32oz growler filled at Heinen's in Mentor, Ohio

Growler poured into a tulip. Pours a bright hazy yellow golden with a fluffy eggshell white head that slowly falls leaving great retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have a subtle dankness to it. Tropical notes are there. Lots of fresh fruit. Pineapple and mango is present. Sweet malts are there blending well with the hop aromas. Slightly floral as well. Subtle alcohol aromas when you dig deep, but it still smells really good. The flavors follow the nose perfectly. Very resinous. More pineapple and mango. There's a nice amount of orange and citrus in the finish. Fresh pine is there as well. Nice hop flavor and hop bitterness. It's bittersweet. Malts do their thing, but don't overwhelm. There's a very subtle warmth, but the alcohol is well hidden. Juicy stuff. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's very fluffy and smooth. Dangerously drinkable.

This is a really nice DIPA. The craftsmanship is very impressive. It's a big and "no holds barred" example of the style without being overwhelming. It has alot going on. Definitely worth checking out if you come across it.
