On tap at TGI Fridays. Pours a hazy, golden hue with minimal frothing. Moderate pine nuances on the nose and tongue. Easily drinkable and quite thirst quenching. Subtle hints of grapefruit and lemon zest. Not bad.

Very nice hop flavor profile. Higher ABV but not noticeable. Too bad it comes in 4 packs at $10 instead of 6 packs. Overall a nice beer.

This is a solid, hoppy IPA. It goes down smooth with plenty of flavor. Definitely a beer you want to take your time with as the consistency is thick but enjoyable.

Pours a hazy and unfiltered looking orange color with a thin lacing which unfortunately left a thin lace that soon disappeared entirely. The orange color was kind of neat though.
A nice juicy and tropical smelling brew. Mango predominated for me. Also, apricots, orange, sweet honey malt and semi pungent earthy hops.
As with the aroma, juicy and fruity sweetness was evident. However, the hops flavor also hits you like sharp pine, the bitterness moderate but biting and evident in the aftertaste. There is also some peppery spiciness and mild tartness.
Medium bodied and low carbonated. Although easy to drink, there is a fullness in the mouth that makes it slightly chewy.
A pretty good DIPA from B.B.
