A good looking beer with a bright clarity and decent carbonation and a bit of a lacing, well done so far. West coast style aroma with citrus, piney, and a hint of floral hops, done right. Taste is akin to the aroma but to a bit lesser degree, but still tasty. Dryish aftertaste brings along a bit of the citrus notes leaving me wanting a bit more. This ends up being a wothy beer, very worthy. Thank you

On tap at Ale Arsenal in San Carlos. One of the better DIPAs I've had this year. Tropical citrus. Juicy Tangerines, Pineapple & Mango. Just a real nice bouque of fruit and dank. This is just about everything I look for in a DIPA. I can see this one being one of those DIPAs that fade fast with age. Very glad the beer in my glass isn't one of those. Masterfully executed West Coast DIPA.

Bottled 14 hours ago
Smell is minimal tropical smell
Taste: this is where it shines, light-medium malt backbone with moderate tropic taste factor
Feel: good mouth feel
Overall: I thought it was very good being this fresh, but in a month's time I probably would opt for another beer.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a clear amber with a frothy white head.

Aroma is lots of sweet orange blossom honey.

Taste is a floral orange with a slight honey sweetness at the end.

22 ounce bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a rusty orange with a bright white, full head, good amount of carbonation, beer is clear, some decent lacing.

A: Tropical notes like guava, mango, peach skins, not much malt on the backend, alcohol is well hidden, smells great.

T: Like the nose, guava, mango, peach skins, punch of grapefruit peel with some bitterness in the middle, backend is more hop intensity with citrus peel and tropical notes lingering in the aftertaste very dry finish.

M: Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation, very dry finish, my palate feels raked like any good IIPA should do.

O: Very impressed, definitely tastes better than it smells, which is okay, the aroma lacks some punch but the taste is world class, very solid IIPA, one I would definitely reach for again.

A pretty average DIPA, enjoyable to drink but firmly unspectacular. Also thought it was a bit syrupy.

Pours a golden orange color with a small white head. Aromas and flavors of tropical fruits, from grapefruit to pineapple to mango to guava to berries. Very fruity and dry finish. Excellent DIPA.

Beer has a nice start of tasty dankness and green pine. There's initially a pleasant guava, passion fruit and stone fruit taste in the middle that lingers too long into the finish. Ends with an over ripe, tad spoiled, stone fruit flavor. Would prefer a bitter, dry finish rather than this. Nice showcase of simcoe though.
