From a growler from Save-On Craft Beer in Mentor, OH. There is not much to say about this beer other than WOW!!! From start to finish this is an homage to sweet juicy, sticky tropical hops with lots of fresh ripe fruit and balancing hints of pine and grapefruit rind. Easy drinking considering the ABV and just enjoyable. I cannot wait till it is bottled or canned!

Oh yeah! This is good stuff!

Dark yellow/orange body. Burnt orange. Sugar, pine, and resin aroma. Sweet/rich/bitter pineapple taste with a sweet, subdued, peachy, background. Way in the back. Candied, subdued fruit, flowery, in that order. Sharp finish. Dense carbonation in the mouth. Chewy. Smooth, no aftertaste, clean.

Overall...I would put this up there against many of the great DIPAs, such as Pliny the Elder (PtE), Abrasive, Hopslam, and Heady Topper. I think it is PtE's half-brother. This DIPA is great!

Outstanding dipa - bitterness is just right with hops balancing and restraining a bright sweetness that keeps things juicy and pleasant. Even at higher abv, it is dangerously drinkable.
