Can from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. BB 23 Jan 2014. From notes.

A - Hazy golden pour. Good carbonation, two fingers of soapy white head. Boozy lace drapes and a half finger of retention.

S - Soapy, lemon, pinesol. Mild.

T - Lemon, grapefruit, citrus, boozy fruits, honeyed syrup fruits.

M - Dry and bitter, good carbonation, thinner body than expected but still around medium.

O/D - Not too shabby of a DIPA. Seems alot tamer in all respects than I expected. It was alright, but I wasn't too impressed. Probably wouldn't revisit.

12oz can into a regular old Mason jar. Pours hazy orange, sunblaze almost. Smells like a tapastry of hops, not one over powering the other, but still not blending well at all. The smell actually burns my nostrils. The initial taste is a massive hop bomb, with no direction whatsoever. Its like 6p just throws whatever is on hand, and a lot of it! The end of the swallow provides more of the gasoline like fumes, blazing both nostrils almost bringing tears to my eyes. This stuff seriously might burn blue just from the obscene ammount of hops in this recipe.

Overall, im about to pour the rest of this down the drain, very uncommon for me.
Its all over the place as far as hop character, and the basic 2row and pale doesnt contribute any different malt character than any other standard iipa.

No where near the claimed 103ibu's, even though its obvious that a scaled down 5gal clone would take an entire 16oz's. Im glad I tried it, but can say for certain never again!
