Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice light orange milkshake hue with a one finger head that fades to leave nice wisps and lacing.

S - Aromas of nice citrus, musty hops, orange peel, juicy bitterness. Light malts good papaya tropical notes. Super fragrant.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, very nice green fruits, good citrus and orange peel, pleasant malts. Almost a light vanilla notes, even nice creamy oats. Really good hops, excellent mango notes.

M - Mouthfeel is fluffy, nicely carbonation.

O - Overall this is a very solid dipa. Excellent mango notes and citrus. Excellent.

Serving Type: growler

Huge frothy creamy head fades semi slowly with big soapy layered lacing, murky milk shake peach orange color

Nose exploded with orange tangerine grapefruit, orange cream, tangerine juice, zest, grapefruit pith, candied pineapple, citrus juice, peach stone fruit, creamy base malt and oats

Taste big creamy malt base, fluffy cream oats and toasty malt, big hop, juicy tangerine orange zest, grapefruit pith notes, mango and tons of papaya, orange cream mango sorbet, generic tropical, peachy stone fruit. Finish dry fair bitterness, just a touch of booze, orange sherbet mango papaya sorbet.

Mouth is med bod very creamy, fluffy carb, very little booze

Overall awesome!

Hazy as can be froth clinging to the side of the glass. Smells of stron fruit but not juicy like a lot of other NEIPAs. This beer is so smooth to drink!! Strong pungent fruit up front gives way to a little dank hop profile. The flavor lingers and makes me want to take another sip. Overall I highly recommend. I got this all from a 10 day old growler. I can only imagine it fresh.

Don't know where to start. I don't write reviews on beers typically but wanted to give this one a special shout out. Its a stand out beer for its style and probably the best I've had. Soft stone fruits through and through with a pillowy soft and full mouth feel. Don't really know what else is needed to be said.

I love Pittsburgh brewery scene. So many great brews and probably the OG brewery of Pittsburgh turning out the best IPAs, is Brew Gentlemen. I have had the privilege to try a number of their brews, but have never had the chance to try any of their DIPAs. Whereas I feel General Braddock is a bit lacking, this brew is hits he hop profile perfectly. It is mango, pineapple, stone fruit bomb with a mild bitterness of a fantastic NE IPA. This is a king in a city of champions. It is on par with the top DIPAs in the style. Really love this beer and hope canning is in the future.
