Lively carbonation rising through an amber body and producing a thick, creamy white head. A bonanza of hop aromas: melon, citrus, pine; very sweet smelling. Light malt character packed with juicy sweetness and an excellent hop bitterness; bright and bracing flavors. Smooth, medium body, dry finish.
Hops rule this one with immense aromas and light yet bracing bitterness. Malts and hops character combine it interesting, complex ways and do a fine job of masking the high ABV. Well-made and easily drinkable (especially if intense IPAs are your thing).

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
