Another Bistro dipa fest review, another orange pour, this one looked very clean though, not much sediment or haze to this one. Aroma, what aroma? I almost gave it a straight "2" in aroma, but since there was no off flavor, I'll give it a minor reprieve, but really, there was just no hop aroma, no aroma period.

Taste, decent, bitterness kicks it up a notch, high carbonation. A decent double ipa, I think I like the hops of wrath single slightly more. All the usual descriptors, grapefruit, citrus, cascade hops. Good enough, not going to knock the socks off any hophead though, and the lack of a dry hop aroma really leaves you feeling disappointed right out the gate on this one.

Look is nice copper colores, long legged lacing. Smell is some citrus, and straw. Taste is a lil boozy. Mouthfeel is medium bitterness, medium hody.

Poured a finger and half of head on a clear, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is lemon, apricot and grapefruit. Nice combination.
The taste has a sharp pine bitterness throughout with a touch of honey and a biting pine bitter finish.
The texture is soft with a low to moderate carbonation.
Quite good and enjoyable.

First of all I was a reluctant fan of Dust Bowls "Hops of Wrath". It is a very good American IPA but the "Hops" in it's title was misleading. Now with its child, "Son", the mission is complete. Copper/honey colour with a clear orange head. Aroma is what you expect with a California IPA; Hoppy, earthy, citrusy. Taste is the same with the slight pine taste you would expect In the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is good. PROST!

Served in a 13oz mason jar.
Bottled 5/01/14. So, fairly fresh.

Overall all not bad. Im not a huge fan of Hops of Wrath. Then again Im not a huge fan of single IPA's. I actually really liked this one one tho. It was slightly boozy, but that is ok in my book and its a staple of Dust Bowl Double IPA's. Personally, I still prefer Therapist, but this one wasn't bad at all. Ive been waiting a long time to find a fresh bottle of this. Honestly, if you dont like this beer, then you either dont like big, strong, hoppy, IPA's or you didnt try it fresh. :)

Cheers and happy hunting.

I liked it a lot. Fruity, but like the name implies, kind of a dusty finish. Solid DIPA. Little bit of a bite, probably due to a slight over-carbonation, but not overwhelming. It's almost perfect; get rid of the "dust," and it'd be in my top 5.
