An ode to the sticky quintessence of hops that never forgoes balance. This piney, resinous Double IPA clocks in at over 100 IBUs.

Clear, orange amber colored body, with a smaller than typical head for the style, but with a lot of latent carbonation steamers. The smell was a bit more subdued than I expected, with some grapefruit and mango, and ironically not a lot of pine resin. The taste was a bit more of a hop showcase, as there was a lot of herbal notes up front. The malt showed up more forcefully shortly afterwards, and gave a tropical punch (mostly orange and pineapple) like sweetness, before fading away into a floral hop finish. Clean feel in the mouth, tending be be neither too slippery nor too sticky. Not the best DIPA I've ever had, but very comforting to fall back to a familiar pleasure from time to time.

Pours out a nice yellow amber with two fingers of white/offwhite suds. Lacing here.
Smell is hoppy and clean with citris notes and sugarmalt. You can smell the alcohol but it is way in the back.
Taste is sweet and bitter for the most part. Not a lot of fruityness but a well balanced IPA. No alcohol detected here of any account.
Mouthfeel is a little sticky but the palate is cleansed quickly. Only the sticky resin:) is left.
Overall this is a good IPA out of a can. Would buy again for the convenience of the can and the good taste of the IPA.

On tap at Churchkey DC 2.17.12, $8 for 14 oz. beeker.

One finger off white head, slow dissipation with good lacing. Orange pine in the nose, some caramel. Big hop taste upfront, mild pine resin in the middle back end medium resin, creeper, mediium effervecence. Decent residual sweetness, a bit sticky yet dry. OK for East Coast DIPA, but not in the same league as Tankslapper.

The body is a gorgeous bright orange-gold and the head is dense and fluffy. Moderate lacing.

The smell is mango and papaya, with a little pine. I was expecting more pine with a moniker like resin.

The pine comes through more in the taste and lingers. There's strong tropical notes and a sweet malt backbone.

Medium bodied with a slightly sticky feel. Heavy bitterness.

I thoroughly enjoyed this DIPA and am glad it's easily accessible in the Chicago market now.
