The beer comes in a light crystal clear golden amber.

The aroma is brilliantly fresh of bright tropical fruits. Tangerine, citrus peel, sweet pineapple, mango, and then some herbal and medium plus resinous dank notes. A very hoppy clean aroma, even with that dankness in there.

The flavor follows of a wonderful burst of tropical fruits. Mangoes, pineapple, passionfruit. There’s a medium plus caramel sweetness and a bready malt backbone. It then transitions to bitter orange and grapefruit peel. The finish has a medium plus bitterness as the green herbal and spicy hops come.

This is an absolutely complex DIPA (at a smaller 7.5% ABV). Wonderful fruity notes, resinous pine, sweetness, bitterness.

(Had this next to Two Hearted, enjoyed this more for its aggressive and complex hopping.)

This ale pours a hazy orange color with very little head but decent lacing. The aroma is rather muted. The aroma is malty with minimal hop notes and a distinctive alcohol bite. I get the feeling as though this dipa is probably past its prime. The mouth is smooth and easy to sip. A little thick but in a good sticky way. The taste is better than I expected given the aroma. It is malty but with a nice hoppy bitterness. There is a definite bite of alcohol on the tail but it is pleasant. You can tell that this ale has seen better days but it is still a solid offering. Would love to try one of these fresher if troegs ever comes to Michigan.

Pours to a nice, full foam, off white in color, with good retention and lacing. Golden amber color and clear. Aroma was hoppy with floral and citrus notes. Nice taste, good hop notes with some grassy, floral and citrus touches. Mouthfeel was medium to full with a lightly bitter aftertaste.

Lovely little slut of a beer. It reminds me of grapefruit juice at my grandmother's house as a child.
Light amber color with a sticky sweet urinal cake type foam.
Strong citrus smell.
Strong bitter hops bite with a sweet grapefruit/citrus rind taste. Easily drinkable despite it's strong tastes.
Don't leave a dirty glass around unless you love fruit flies.
(And you'll probably think those are some sexy ass flies at 7 .5% alcohol and feel like they raped you in the morning if you kill a sixer)
This is probably the best floral citrus ipa ive ever had.
