22oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A- Semi-translucent, some hop haze, a light copper/orange in color, a bit of mediocre white head that doesn't really lace much.
S- Disappointing. Some tangerine and garlic from the hops, maybe some pale malts? Had to sniff this way too many times to try and pick those notes up.
T- This DIPA is trying to be a jack of all trades, and is truly a master of none. There is way too much going on (which is normally a good thing). The notes are all very mild, and none have any kid of intensity on the palette . Tangerine, garlic, some mint, hemp and grapefruit. Pale malts are pretty agressive and lend an unbalanced sugary component. Gets bitter, and more metallic on the back end as it warms.
M- not too bad, medium, kind slick, but that gets cancelled out by the metallic bitterness. Some prickly carbonation. Kinda coats the lips.
O- Meh. That's what this makes me say. It's like they just got as many hops as they could and just rammed them kettle in no particular order or amount.

Undated bomber at 45 degrees into goblet; twist off cap!
Extremely faint aroma of fruity hops
Head initially < 1 cm, off white, frothy; rapidly diminishing to a partial layer approximately 1.5 mm thick
Body is medium orange, hazy: a couple of large lumps fell into the glass when poured
Flavor begins slightly bitter with no discernable taste. This ends with a slight astringency. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation.
This is not a good beer. It is contract-brewed in Wilkes-Barre, PA, possibly at The Lion. There is virtually no hoppiness nor any other flavor. The appearance and the aroma are both sub-par; only the palate is as expected. IMHO, pass this one by.
