Pours a clear light golden yellow with a frothy white head. Smell is really citrusy. You can already tell this is loaded with El Dorado. Floral, piney, herbal, and a little tropical. Taste is very lemony upfront with loads of pine resin, dankness, maybe a little peppery, and slight mango/guava. Malt is barely noticeable but adds a nice amount of sweetness. No alcohol detected. Bitterness isn't overwhelming and complements the citrus flavors very well. Mouthfeel is super clean and crisp. Really easy to drink. Not overly carbonated; I'd say it's right where it should be. Overall a really good DIPA. Price point is a bit higher than their other 6 packs, but considering these are 16oz cans it's not a bad deal at all compared to the 12oz 6 packs. I was expecting this to be a total juice bomb but I'm glad they went in another direction. It's definitely a pleasant break from all the super tropical fruity beers out there. (926 characters)

Clear burnt orange with a moderately-sized, creamy bone-white head. Leaves lots of sticky lacing down the glass.

Floral, citrus, and grassy aroma, along with some definite malt sweetness. A big, bold, expressive DIPA, but too much malt sweetness compared to what I really like to see in these style beers from Pizza Port.

Huge bitterness, floral notes, grass, and bready sweetness. Initially, there's some dank marijuana and citrus character, but after just a few sips the overwhelming bitterness and sweetness take over. This is a tough pint to put down.

Medium to full in body for the style, slightly chewy, with moderate carbonation.

A huge DIPA--too bitter for my liking, ultimately, but not poorly executed. (765 characters)

My sweet hell... literally. Was this thang brewed by a malt liquor company? All kinds of sticky, but not good sticky like that stuff your grandmamma takes for her glaucoma - think more like a green apple slurpee that spilled in your cousin Karl's pick-up truck and left to rot in the Alabama sun for two weeks. Feel is lighter than Taylor Swift when she steps on a scale.

Raul does not recommend. (398 characters)

Took a few days for me to appreciate the beer. Solid smell with a smooth taste and solid bite on the tongue. For the price could be a little steep, but just a solid sixer that will be brought to the fire pit at the beach..... cans where labeled 7/22/15 opened on the 28th. (272 characters)
