A canned DIPA.. I love it. The sticker price of $16.99 a 4-pack is a hard to digest but given it's 10% and less than $5 a beer it's not too bad.
Pours an attractive cloudy orange color. The beaming white head is rich and thick but dissipates to a blanket. Lots of lacing is left behind. V. good.
Smell is also good. Citrus fruits and malt. A touch more complexity would be nice.
The taste is a bursting of citrus hops over top of a malt back drop. Its very well done. My only criticism is that its lacking complexity. The alcohol is extremely well hidden and it ends with a nice bitter finish which keeps you coming back for more.
Mouthfeel is excellent. Soft and silky smooth but with a crisp hoppy and carbonation bite.
Drinkability, for a beer of this strength, is through the roof.
Overall, one hell of a beer.

Pour is golden with white head. Sticky and lingering lace.
Lemon zest with grapefruit and pine in the nose.
Spivey punch in the initial sip. Both from the hops and malts. I love the blend of rye and dark Munich. This really adds to the complexity of the hop bill. Easy drinking with medium mouthfeel and a sharp bite from carbonation.
Some more pine and grapefruit in the aftertaste with a dry enough finish.
Overall a solid imperial IPA. Doesn't blow you away but very solid throughout.
