Poured from a Crowler into a 13 oz Weyerbacher tulip glass canned recently is all I can say. Pours a a slightly hazy orange with a 2 plus finger sticky white head that leaves behind magnificent lace.

Smell is pungent marijuana, papaya, mango, pine, and grapefruit rind.

Taste follows very dank, tropical fruit, a very nice hit of piney grapefruit in the fairly balanced finish.

Mouthfeel is very chewy for the style, perfect amount of life, not really dry, and the drinkability is insane for 10% ABV.

Overall this is a very special DIPA, many thanks @jzeilinger for this one, really impressive.

16oz pounder can poured into a Brew Gentlemen tulip glass. Drank this 8 pack anywhere from 2 days old until now.

Look: Pours a slightly hazy golden to light orange color with about an inch of head. Lacing is very present and retention is great.

Smell: Tons of citrusy notes along with grapefruit and pine notes.

Taste: Taste follows the nose for me. Lots of citrusy notes and plenty of grapefruit along with some pine. Citrus hops seem to be coming thru more than the Simcoe. ABV of 10% is very well hidden as there is no alcohol burn at all.

Feel: Medium bodied. Nice and crisp!

Overall: Fantastic double IPA from Pizza Boy. ABV is a rock solid 10% and its well hidden in this gem. Glad to finally have these guys in Pittsburgh. I will be revisiting this one next year if brewed again!

16 oz can poured into a Weizen glass.

Appearance
Hazy golden blonde with 1 finger of creamy white head. Some yeast sediment dances around. Moderate carbonation.

Nose
Guava, Kiwi-strawberry, papaya, pineapple, grapefruit, and honey.

Taste
White grape, guava, and kiwi-strawberry. Dank greens and pine sap with a smooth honey sweetness. Grapefruit juiciness with restrained zest.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, and oily with a light bitterness.

Overall
A freakin' great DIPA that drinks easy for 10%. Dank and "Aussie tropical."

On tap at the brewery. Tulip glass. A brilliant gold with a nice off-white head. Initial impression is citrus, tropical fruit, with some pine notes and a slight sweetenss that nicely balances everything. Mouthfeel is medium and kinda sticky; carbonation is perfect. Alcohol is evident but not objectionable. Finish is sweet, fading to a slight bitterness on the back of the tongue. Very, very good DIPA.

Pours a light copper color with about a half finger of head. The nose is citrus and hoppy. The flavor follows the nose with the citrus notes predominating and an extra touch of sweetness from the malt.

This is a top shelf DIPA.

Poured on tap into a Crowler, consumed two days later.

A - Pours a dark orange color, semi-hazy, and has a generously thick, bright white lacing ring. Looks very inviting.

S - Nothing but sticky, juicy, and aromatic fruit: passion fruit, apricots, red grapefruit, peach, mango papaya, pineapple. The smell is just as inviting.

T - Follows the nose: Passion fruit, apricots, peach, mango, papaya, lime, mango, and pineapple with a pine bitter finish to offset the sweetness. There is a touch of peppery spice to the hoppy fruit. The ABV is not detectable so much in the nose but it really hits the senses on the first few sips.

M - Thick and slippery.

O - This is an outstanding D-IPA. I want more.
