Really liked this beer and to me much better that an 87.
Nice cloudy orange color. With a few fingers of white head.
Smells like a citrus fruity IPA.
Easy going down with just enough hop flavor to let me know its an DIPA.
Would gladly buy again.

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My third beer from Only Child Brewing Company, out of Northbrook, Illinois. Expectations are good based on my previous experience with these guys.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - The head on this beer was soooo big, that's for damn sure. It pours about five fingers of long-lasting off-white foam for a head. Body is a burnt sienna orange color with some caramel hues to it. Leaves tons of huge fat bubbly lacing behind. Excellent head retention for the high abv, but it is a little much.

S - The smell is fresh, fruity, and tropical. Oranges, mango, pineapple. Very bready, earthy, and yeast-driven. Smells very nice.

T - Taste follows the nose - crisp, fruity, and tropical. Oranges, mangos, pineapple, and dry doughy bready / earthy yeast presence.

M - The feel is fluid, creamy, and smooth. Mostly clean, with some bready yeast and light bitterness left behind, but not resinous or sticky. Medium-full bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a lovely DIPA from Only Child Brewing. I love the yeast flavor these guys use for bottle conditioning their beers, also. It gives their beers a very unique taste and feel to them. A lovely beer that I would have again, and highly recommend. I look forward to more from these guys.
