scored a couple 4-packs and smuggled them back to PA. pint can into flying dog tulip. no canned on date.
A: a very hazy body that is a pale orange color. head is white, but not bright. big bubbles. good retention and lacing. almost too hazy, but i guess it must be fresh then.
S: pine. grapefruit. very inviting. kiwis. melon. but mostly pine. lots and lots of pine. very good.
T: a very american hop profile is thorough. the palate is actually sticky. enough sweet malt/caramel flavor is back there, but just detectable towards the finish. a little vanilla? bitterness lingers into the finish but is not over-cloying.
M: mild carbonation on a full bodied IPA.
D: like the can says, dangerously drinkable. hands down top 3 DIPA's i can just pick up and enjoy several without being overwhelmed. just lovely.
Serving type: can

S-Bursting with citrus tropical hops...grapefruit, orange
T-follows the nose with some slight pine to it. lots of grapefruit with a somewhat bitter finish
M-more carbonated than other DIPA's, creamy medium bodied,
