A - Pours a bright medium gold color with a one fingered creamy rich white head. Slight carbonation.

S - Dank citrus, mango, apricot, some pineapple, and exhibits some of those qualities of citra hops we've all grown to love or hate...cat pee. (Even though there's no citra in this beer.)

T - Follows the nose and is hop forward all the way through - apricot, mango, a little bit of tropical fruit, and a piney bitter ending.

M - Flat, medium body. I can only blame it on the growler was taken from the bottom of the keg so there wasn't much life left in it.

O - Meh, not as good as Dirt Wolf.

7/23....On tap. Pours a pleasant dark copper with low foam. Heavy pine aroma comes through. Taste is a balanced bitter. Gets hearty. Chewy but smooth. Very good.

Appearance is a golden straw color with a thin layer of head. Grapefruit and hop notes are definitely present in the nose. The most noticeable thing about the flavor profile is that there is some nice maltiness here. The grapefruit and hops make a comeback on the finish, but the hop profile is not as strong as one would expect from a top flight DIPA.
