Notes: Made with a blend of American hops. Reminds us of intense mandarin orange, pineapple and mango flavors, and that winter is, in fact, here.

Wow this goes down easy! Tons of tropical fruit, pineapple, guava etc, plus a little melon. Lightly sweet with low bitterness, the skimpy sugar cookie malt backbone lets the hops shine. Great IPA.

Can dated Best By 02/01/23 into pint glass. Pours a murky pale gold with a brief off-white head. Great lacing! Iitial impression is juicy mango, orange and pineapple. Fairly sweet, but not cloying. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Finish fades to a sweet citrus. Overall, an excellent DIPA!

Appearance: Pours a cloudy goldenstraw capped by a two finger froth; excellent retention with webs of lacing

Smell: Pineapple, papaya and guava with hints of kiwi and berry

Taste: Pineapple, papaya and guava forward with the berry tones complementing; just a hint of cake malt underneath; moderate piney and grassy bitterness develop,, in the mid-palate, and balance out the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Brew Gentlemen never disappoints with their NE IPAs and this big one takes it up a notch

Thanks, thebouch01, for the opportunity

Cloudy orange with thin white head that leaves sheets of lacing. Creamy orange and slight peach in the nose. Continues to the taste, coupled with moderate bitterness and a nice herbal character. Medium bodied with a classic soft feel. Very nice.

Smell: Really citrus forward. Juicy orange, like orange juice, lemon, lime, tangerine. It has a lot zestiness. Lime and lemon zest. There’s a really mellow tropical fruit presence, predominantly mango. Underneath that there is a really light yeasty bubblegum quality. There isn’t really any malt presence to speak off.

Taste: Right upfront you get a really nice burst of juicy citrus fruit. Orange juice and tangerine along with that yeasty pink bubblegum note. The juiciness transitions in the mid palette to more of a zesty citrus notes with lemon and lime taking the lead. There is a mellow white bread note to go along with the zest. As the beer transitions into the finish I get a more aggressive tropical fruit presence then the nose lead on. I get mango skin, kiwi, banana and guava, there is a fruit note i’m picking up on, but I can’t quit put my finger on what it is. Underneath the tropical fruit assault, the citrus zest shows back up along with a touch of grassiness to add a really light bitterness that hangs around in the aftertaste with the tropical fruits.

Feel: Medium bodied with spot on carbonation. The beer is extremely creamy and soft. It feels like the beer is just floating on my tongue. The finish is long and the flavor hangs around for a long time on this beer. Also the drinkability is insane. There is a touch of booziness as the beer goes down, but it does nothing to detract from this amazing mouthfeel.

Overall: Brew Gentleman is the best brewery in my opinion at making NE IPA’S. If you haven’t anything form Brew Gentleman your missing out.

Pretty opaque but quite hazey, light yellow-gold. Aroma has softer tropical notes - some melon rind and stone fruit - with some alpha hops. Probably the most hop-forward of the BG beers I have had, it teeters on being a little too bitter especially on the back palate but it is still quite good. I definitely got a lot of melon / cantaloupe vibes and in general more earthy fruit than big bursts of tropical flavors, the mosaic brings some grassyness to it as well.

Big aromas of citrus, pineapple, tropical, finishes nice and dry. Creamy, full mouth feel. Another incredible beer made by Brew Gentlemen. All of these IPAs and Double IPAs look unbelievable. They are glowing yellow orange like a big fresh glass pineapple/ orange juice. No hop bitterness whatsoever.

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.
