Pint can poured into a snifter. This was canned on 03/06/14 so 10 days ago.
Appearance: Pours a deep translucent amber and leaves a finger of slightly off-white head. Carbonation bubbles can be seen floating to the surface, but this is a very dark ipa.
Smell: Big dank, musty, resinous hops. Also caramel, malts, citrus, mango. A nice floral hint behind it all as well. Pleasant, interesting aroma.
Taste: Resin, some pine, mango, malts, caramel, some biscuit; pretty dank. Surprisingly smooth for the ABV.
Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium to thick velvetty feel. Finishes surprisingly smooth.
Overall: Really impressive beer. Very different for an IPA, lots of flavor and a really nice feel to it. A great, big IPA.

Into a Sam Adams glass.
Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange with fluffy beige head that settles to one finger and hangs out for awhile.
Aroma is caramel, orange marmalade, big bread dough, and fruitcake. Smells very malt forward for an IPA.
On the palate you get that malt presence with sweet dough, caramel, and rye bread with the hops taking on more of a side kick role with orange pith, faint pine, and lemon peel. Finishes pretty sweet.
Mouthfeel is pretty spot on.
Overall a very malt forward, "east coast" style IPA. Pretty good but I'd put Dogfish 90 ahead of this.

Poured a can dated 12/30/13 (25 days old) into a tulip glass.
Very pretty, darker in color reminds me of a West Coast IPA.
Smell is a bit sweet, not getting any fruit. Sweet in a candy kind of way.
Mouthfeel is fine, good carbonation.
Overall, the local hype around this beer might have made my expectations a little too high. I'm not a huge fan of malty beers and i think this is more malty then hoppy. Still very good overall, just not exactly what I expected.

a: Beautiful thick two finger foam that sticks to the glass as you drink. Very clear amber.
s: Extremely powerful hop aroma. Citrus with hints of pine.
t: Lots and lots of hops, only after the beer warms up you can start tasting some malts. Not much caramel more biscuit notes. Pine taste but it fades to a buttery/diacetyl taste.
m: Very bitter, the big alcohol warms your mouth. Medium to High body with medium to low carbonation.
o: Big beer with lots of flavor. A little too many which takes away from the beer. The flavor is not as clean as I would like. It is an average imperial IPA

Marshall Wharf Cant Dog
16oz can, packaged 11/26/13 (?)
Pours a nice deep amber, very good clarity. Nice one-finger head retains beautifully. (4.5)
Aroma is estery, with some fruity hops. Diacetyl lurking in the background. (3)
Flavor has a lot of booze, bitterness, caramel malt and hop resin. Notes of stressed fermentation include: acetaldehyde, mild diacetyl and light mercaptan. It's hoppy but too many flaws cloud the good flavors. Medium carbonation, slick feel. (2, 3.5)
Not very clean, and not a great example of the style, but drinkable if very cold. I've had this stuff in much better shape than this. I probably would have liked it more if I just drank it straight from the can. (3)
