L: Had this beer on-tap at The Answer Brewpub, poured into a snifter. Had a golden yellow color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. OK lacing.

S: A nice aroma of hops, light fruit, and some citrus.

T: Tasted of a variety of different light tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, in particular), some citrus (orange), lots of hops, a hint of malt, and a bit of caramel. A pretty well made flavor, but one that's slightly out of balance. It's a bit overhopped in spots, but is still pretty tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A very solid, drinkable DIPA. Not my favorite of The Answer's offerings, but still worth a try.

Poured on tap at the brewpub in a snifter, the beer is a slightly hazed, straw gold coloring, with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of rich tropical fruit, solid citrus, a boozy kick, rich pine resin, and a rich caramel backbone. Flavors are insanely balanced, with grapefruit and orange citrus forward, balanced with pine pitch and evergreen. Subtle booze highlights, a rich caramel backbone, and subtle pepper spice and herbal highlights. Amazing. Big, smooth, robust body, with an evergreen and citrus aftertaste and slow building warmth. Smooth, dry finish. Great beer!

Crowler shared by Jake. Thanks man.

Yellowish orange body with a small white collar. Aromas of orange rind, alcohol, distant onion. Medium-full body, a bit sweet, even a tad syrupy. Alcohol is present throughout, though not overbearing. Good stuff, though a bit over the top for me. Drinkability suffers due to the high abv.

Great beer. It had hints of orange, pineapple, and mango. Very smooth aroma and nice taste. I enjoyed it immensely and wish I could had had a few more!
