On tap at Hops and Pie. Was it hoppy? Yes but it wasn't anything special to me and had a weird malt flavor. Just strange. I know I am in the minority here and that is ok.

On-draught @ Freshcraft in Denver.

Creamy as hell, though that kind of mutes the hops, reducing the pungency of the hop flavours. Floral and fruity, though not citrusy or tropical.

ABV is well disguised.

Big body, but surprisingly smooth. Expected bitterness but it's totally subdued.
Aroma: not a strong smell. Hops.
Taste: coppery
Visual: normal? Nice lacing...
Feel: spicy

On tap at Toronado Seattle. Served in an odd 10-12 ounce sort of shaker glass.

Lacy, oatmeal-colored head. Settles into a film of lace over the body. Copper body with perfect clarity. 4.5

Smells of orange and grapefruit. Citrus-heavy but not particularly remarkable. 3.75

A somewhat must orange and grapefruit flavor prevails. Seems muted and contained. Could Toronado be serving an old keg? Tough to say but this isn't awe-inspiring. Caramel and malty sweetness complements the fruity citrus but it's still a bit muddied. 3.5

Definitely thick-bodied. Feels DIPA-ish. Malt is prominent in feel for sure. Tangy citrus feel up front and then becomes grainy. 3.5

Not sure what the deal is but this isn't that impressive. Will revisit.

Growler poured earlier today from Chuck's Hop Shop

Light copper ale with soapy yellowish foam etching the surface. Grapefruit, mango, lemon peel, a bit of alchohol, some catty character and biscuity malts in the nose. Flavor follows suit with a good punch of bitterness, balanced with sweet, wet malts and plenty of juicy fruits in there. Although not overly bitter, the beer is also a little sweet with alcohol. Slight hint of acetone on the finish. Medium bodied with lower carb (I think this related to the growler fill method used here) and a resinous finish. This has all the main components of a world class DIPA, but just needs some fine tuning in the alcohol, ester and overall weaving of the flavors. I would order again in a heart beat and will likely finish the growler tonight with a friend.
