Huge, huge, thanks to MrKennedy for this. Believe to be two-three weeks old max.
DRINK FROM THE CAN! , eh?
So I did, at first... drank around 1/3, then poured...
A - cloudy pineapple juice. Minimal head.
S - hops, mango, pineapple. I noted less intense than others have.
T - wallop! Pineapple, pink grapefruit, mango/peach as sweeteners, sublime and integrated. Malt backbone is solid. Citrus hops follow but do not overpower. Just the way I like it.
M - medium weight, well carbonated but not overcarbonated. On the money.
Overall - world class brew, and amazing I got the chance to try so fresh. Real downside is it goes down just so easily, you would never guess it was 8%. One day I will go to Waterbury.
Dunno about this can lark, tho.... :-0 ....having said that - it does accentuate the pine notes and makes for an overall less sweet (and maybe more archetypal) DIPA experience. I'll go the glass, thanks.
Serving type: can
