Drank directly from the can.
Really nice citrus and floral aromas, more than I was expecting.
taste was very nice too, maybe a touch less than aromas but still really nice.
Mouthfeel was very good for a DIPA.
Overall, I was very surprised by this beer. Delicious!

A: Pours a very lightly hazy golden. Nice thin head, with consistent lacing.
S: Interesting for a DIPA. Hop aromas, but not as strong as could be expected, and more malty, sourdough bread aromas than expected. Still nice.
T: Mild citrus, and herbal hops, balanced by a malt presence stronger than most DIPAs. Very, very smooth and balanced as a result. Alcohol is well hidden.
M: Medium to Full bodied, not overly astringent. Mild and pleasing.
O: Really a great, very drinkable, approachable DIPA. Fantastic bargain at the price.

I drank this straight out of the can. The aroma is slightly piney with some citrus notes. Nicely balanced bitterness, slightly sharp, with a fairly thick malt backbone. Very appropriate for the style. Nice silky mouth feel. Overall, a pretty nice IIPA.

Another day another DIPA!
A fluffy tan froth seeks to avoid extinction, and is successful, as it leaves a smattering of lace in its wake. Color is a bright, reddish-orange.
Aroma is subtle with some caramel malts peeking through a veil of oily hops.
Tastes sweet and creamy and wrapped in more hops with a slight spiciness at the end. Some vanilla is also noticed in the aftertaste.
Medium bodied and just a little alcohol.
Good but not great.

Thanks Slatetank for gifting me with a can of this. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a clear copper color with white sudsy froth and patchy lace sticking all over the glass.
The aroma is composed of pine, herbs and a grassy sort of cantaloupe or melon feel begore getting floral and fruity as it warms up. This brew's nose is all about the hops in a strange not so unified way but it is unique and enjoyable.
The flavor starts off a little unexpected with toffee malt then blending to bitter pine, pith, grassy notes and a bit of yeast. A sort of melon flavor is midpalate like cantaloupe before getting more fruity and floral towards the finish.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall a decent brew that I appreciate getting the chance to try. Thanks again Matt for the share.
