19.2 oz can poured into Dogfish Head IPA glass. Don't see a canned on date anywhere.
Appearance: Pours clear amber with a fluffy 1 inch off-white head. Good head retention.
Smell: Very pungent hop aroma - citrus and grapefruit dominate along with some floral qualities and pine. Just a hint of caramel malt sweetness in there, but hops definitely take over. Very nice.
Taste: Similar to smell - big grapefruit hop presence, tangerine, floral. Some tropical fruit that I wasn't picking up in the aroma. There's a hint of sweetness from the caramel malt to balance it out but flavor-wise this is all hops. Just a tad bit of alcohol heat on the finish along with bittering hops. Overall, very very clean flavor profile that really shows off the hops.
Mouthfeel: Excellent. Clean, crisp, medium to high carbonation level keeps the hops popping.
Overall: Outstanding showing from Upslope. Hangs with some of the top DIPAs in the business.
Serving type: can
