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

The beer pours with some white head and good retention. The head also has good retention. The beer itself is a nice golden amber that is clear.

A strong hop smell with a caramel malt backbone but the hops seem to dominate.

The first taste are the hops with a caramel malt backbone that show up towards the end of the drink. The beer leaves a strong hop aftertaste.

Medium bodied but starts with a light feel. Biting carbonation.

A brilliant beer and worth every penny. My only gripe is that the beer sells out quickly and

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.

Appearance: Perfectly clear copper. The color of pennies. Head is dirty white, chunky, and leaves some solid lacing. Head drops to a thin cap pretty quickly. Nice depth of color. Carbonation looks to be on point.

Smell: Some pine. Caramel and biscuit malts. Slightly earthy and a touch of mint. It carries that distinct Sixpoint aroma. Hints of citrus. Big doughy malts. Not a ton of depth, but what's there is decent.

Taste: Pine and citrus rind. Malty, chewy, biscuits. Dough and some caramel notes. Hops drop notes of mint and earth. Floral in good measure. Pine is unrelentingly bitter on each subsequent sip. It never becomes punishing, but remains pithy and slightly resinous. Faintly earthy.

Mouthfeel: Moderate body with a moderate carbonation. A touch dry on the end of each sip.

Overall: It's an imperialized Bengali Tiger. The hop profile is similar, but they beefed up the malts enough to cover up some of the weaker hop elements. Decent, but the reduced can size seems silly. There's a 16oz can waiting to happen.

A: Apricot in color just ever so slightly hazy, white head on top that dissipates fairly rapidly into a ring.

S: Jam packed with hops. As the name implies there is a huge amount of resiny pine aroma. Some grapefruit notes as well as a nice bit of caramel or burnt sugar in the finish.

T: Pine resin and grapefruit dominate the flavor with some earthy notes following. Some caramel notes in the middle, the finish is a big hit of bitterness with some herbal flavors.

M: Medium in body, the carbonation is fine in texture and medium in amount. There is a slight creaminess to the feel. The finish is a little puckering with the bitterness.

O: Overall a really nice IIPA. The price point for what you are getting is really the huge selling point. The price on tap was incredible, and the can was decent as well.
