Nice deep gold 1 finger tight and boozy has some watermelon and pine some cherry and finishes the way cocaine smells.
Gives you a ren and stimpy kind of vibe.

Handsome golden amber brew with a fine-grained pile of foam in the Rodenbach goblet. Massive peach aroma. Sudsy southfeel adds to the pleasure.

This is surprisingly sweet with a woody cedar taste. Huge fruity flavors. Orange peel. The sugary finish is enlivened by tart apricot and a whiff of onions. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at a San Diego supermarket.

Hazy dark golden color with off-white head. Aroma has a really interesting hop profile with grapes and also some juicy orchard fruits with a hint of watermelon. Taste follows with the watermelon and grapes plus some orange. Medium to intense bitterness throughout. Medium body, quite smooth on the palate. I really enjoyed this one. It has a very different hop profile from other IPAs.

22 bomber in pint glass.

L: Pours a cloudy, gold with a 1-finger head. Average head retention and some nice lacing.

S: Strong citrus nose with pineapple being the most pronounced.

T/F: Definitely strong on the hops and a little malt to balance it out and add some sweetness. It is a 9.6% ABV, and you can taste some of that up front. Bitter finish, an maybe a little too much bitterness at the end. Medium body.

O: Very good DIPA.
