Canned 9/5/18; drank 9/22/18 @ the Yarchives.

See-through urine appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice, noisy eggshell head; a thick curtain of lace.

Caramel, pine & watermelon jolly rancher notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Pine & grapefruit flavors up front; baking soda & faint watermelon jolly rancher notes on the finish.

Old-model IPA boredom that is mild enough to be drinkable. Pass.

Had on tap. Really found this dipa to be fascinating in two ways, one in how the cloying honey sweetness went so nicely with the tropical hops and fruits, and two how it was so drinkable, even with plenty of hops and a 9.4 abv. The tropical fruits, pineapple, star fruit, papaya, guava, and maybe even some dragon fruit, all come forward on the taste and smell. Has a malty grain backbone that lets the sweet notes shine. Nice work

Batch 345 poured into a nonic pint glass. The honey adds a unique dimension to this beer and I believe it ultimately compliments it. It's somewhat subtle yet distinct enough to taste and smell its presence. Solid offering.

Batch #3--, the last two numbers of the handwritten number were smudged. No bottle date but I know it was released in the last couple of weeks based on the brewery's social media page. Poured into a tulip and is a deep golden yellow color with good head and lacing. Smell is citrusy with hints of honey, and taste is about the same and is delicious. I also though carbonation is a bit higher than I prefer but easily cured with a more aggressive pour.

This is an awesome DIPA that reminds me of Spiteful's namesake IPA, but injected with 'roids and sweetened up. Will buy again.

Pours golden yellow, cloudy, with a finger of off-white foam.

Grapefruit, mango, honey, and toast.

Candied malts, citrus and tropical fruit, and sweet honey.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, semi-chewy, sticky, sweet.

Overall, this turned out swell.
