Wow! Up front hoppiness , yet very smooth and drinkable . No alcohol burn, but this beer brings on wooziness . Orange copper color, oil skin head, hop dominance for aroma and taste . A real beauty!

Very characteristic brew from BB. Big musty smell up front followed by a small amount of piney dankness. Flavor is also falls into line of the other few IPA brews I've had from them, big pine notes with a slight citrus hit in the finish but mostly pine here. Not quite as good as their handtruck pale ale, but I'm a fan of having more tropical hop flavor/aroma and less malt body. If you love drinkable pine forward DIPA's this is your beer.

On tap at Belmont Station

A clear amber with a dense, long lasting off white head with excellent retention and lacing. The nose is a .bright and pungent hop slap to the face with crazy intense tropical fruit, citrus and pine. Resiny, pithy, pungent grapefruit, candied orange peel, floral honey, mild sweetness. Awesome.

The palate opens with a blend of pine, grapefruit, candied orange peel, mango, mild papaya, intense, fruity, resiny and mildly spicy. Mild sweetness is apparent on the mid palate with honey and orange. Resiny and oily on the finish, this beer is medium light in body, moderately carbonated and great on the palate. Alcohol is a little noticeable, especially on the finish as the beer warms up. Definitely in the upper echelons of the Barley Brown's IPA portfolio.

Served from tap at Belmont Station, Portland Oregon - June 28, 2013

Appearance: Golden amber. Medium sized head. Par for DIPA

Smell: DANK! Floral dankness, pine dankness. Did I mention dank?

Taste: Lots happening. How many different hops are in this one? Sheesh. Fresh helps of course, but hops aroma and flavor abound.

Mouthfeel: Sharp, without being too bitter.

Overall: Killer. Had a pint of Pliny the Elder before this one. While Pliny is a more sessionable DIPA, with flavors fading on the finish, Tank Slapper sustains. It's a sipper. Easy to get lost in. A new favorite!
