look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Pillowy soft mouthfeel. Bold citrus flavors with enough sweetness and only slight bitterness. Juicy and well rounded. Easy to drink for a DIPA. Tangerine and grapefruit.

Fresh batch just tapped today, 750ml swingtop poured into a Brew Gentlemen tulip glass:

Look: Pours an amazing hazy yellow to light orange wth about an inch of head! Lacing is very present and retention is amazing!

Smell: Dank as hell with insane tropical, citrus, and a minor amount of pine notes!

Taste: Another juice bomb from Brew Gents! Tons of tropical and citrus notes coming through especially up front! Some pine and minor dry finish at the end! Very little to no alcohol burn on this one!

Feel: Medium bodied. Nice and soft/fluffy.

Overall: Another killer DIPA from Brew Gents! Right up there with Foshomo, Akamai, and Albatross! I would revisit this one in a heart beat! Get out there and get some as this is the last batch for this year!

4.69/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

L: Beautifully crafted honeycomb, yams, and marmalade hazy hues with a 3cm white head and lacing for days
S: Bananas, mangoes, oranges, and a hint of dank pine
T: Tropical fruits (e.g., pineapple, oranges, calamansi) with a hint of the 'bubblegum' sweetness
F: Exceedingly smooth, crushable, and soft
O: An elegant and smooth DIPA from start to finish. Brew Gentlemen continue to impress me with their deft crafting of exceptionally juicy, hazy, and smooth hoppy brews and Mammoth falls right in line for me. I can appreciate some people's knock on this beer for the 'bubblegum' profile that is evident in beers like Tree House's Green, but to me this isn't a cloying flavor, but rather provides a welcomed sweetness and complexity to the overall citrusy flavor profile. Very enjoyable beer.

4.04/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a growler; a hazy golden color with a loosely bubbled head and lace.

Taste has nice tropical and dank notes, some pineapple and mango, really juicy, and just a little earthy bitterness. Banana and pineapple notes have this one tasting like a smoothie.

The mouthfeel is light bodied with a light carbonation. They use growler fill tubes so a lot of carbonation is lost on the fill.

Overall it's a very nice NE styled IPA, one that I would rather have ontap somewhere than get a growler fill from the brewery. Still a really nice beer.

Ridiculously hazey, almost looks like fruit juice not beer, but possibly the best smelling and tasting DIPA I've had. Mouthfeel takes a bit of a hit due to being so unfiltered. Wow!!! Well done BG!

Another juicy DIPA from Brew gentlemen. Pours hazy, orange color and good carb. The nose is all tropical/citrus fruits. Tastes is similar to the nose without much bitterness. Just on the back end do you realize it is DIPA from the minimal alcohol burn. It's easy going down and definitely makes you want to grab more when your glass is empty. The body is great for a DIPA. If this was in a can I think a lot more people would be talking about it.

Straight up pineapple juice a la Trillium but with less bitterness and more sweet fruit juice like you might expect from Tree House. Really world class and if these guys keep this up they'll be talked about alongside those Nee England hops.

NE style DIPA that is a juice bomb. The nose and taste are just what you would expect with the aura this beer displays. Excellent mouthfeel and mild bitterness is subdued by gobs of juice and pungent aroma. Amazing beer.

Poured a hazy golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was huge tropucal fruit, citrus and resin. Flavor similar, body is extremely soft, very juicy, minimal bitterness, and frighteningly crushable for its strength.

Pours like a glass of pulpy grapefruit juice (yellow). It smells juicy. It tastes sweet like tropical fruit followed by a citrus fruit flavor. It leaves a bitter happiness in the aftertaste. The body is heavy, which is the best part. Overall, it is a tasty strong dipa with lots of fruit hops and a great body.

There is not a better beer in this fruity / tropical double IPA category. TheBrewGentlemen have something truly special here, and it puts brews to the likes of Julius to shame. Seek out and try this immediately!

I don't know why The Brew Gentlemen originally created this beer as a weizenbock but the migration to a double IPA seems like a good move to me. This beer was markedly different than all the other styles from this brewery that I've tried. Alcohol notes finally made an appearance, and the malts left a more tactile sensation on my palate and my lips.

Pours super hazy and golden orange in color, darker than any of their regular IPAs. I got aromas of orange juice, some pineapple, and another tropical fruit I can't place. Flavors mixed in those citrus fruits with a really nice wheaty and sweet bread character. Mouthfeel was definitely a bit heavier than some of their other beers but not out of place for an imperial.

This is worth having for anyone that can get their hands on beer from this brewery. I would have liked a more pungent bouquet but as it is, most definitely a well made beer that is highly drinkable and great for sharing with friends.

The beer comes in a golden hazy orange. Extremely hazy.

The aroma offers fresh cut oranges, grapefruit, mangoes, fresh cut grass and herbs, a hint of doughy malts.

The flavor follow with mango juice, blood orange, grapefruit, onto a doughy malt, and then a finish of grass, hints of pine, and a huge drying quality.

The mouthfeel is chewy and light.

I feel like when I try this style, I know pretty much anything I need to off the nose. And judging from this one, I believe I will be happy. There is the bubble gum thing with cloves and the touch of bananas with the yeasty goodness. Flavor certainly follows suit in much regard. Not as boisterous as an American ticker might hope for, but it's good. This is a style rarely seen and even more rarely well executed. Yet another good one from the BG.
