4.99/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Poured a 5 oz. taster just to see the color.
A: An unfiltered golden straw color. Poured a nice thick white head that stuck around for a bit.
S: As soon as I popped the can I could smell the pretty complex hop profile. A little piny but mostly citrus on the nose. Sweet and juicy.
T: Not a hopbomb, it's a hop experience. The flavor is a little piny but overall it is fruity. Crisp and not overpowering I am getting grapefruits and tropicals.
M: IMO the best feature of this brew. The beer completely coats your mouth with the juicy goodness of its complex hop profile. The carbonation is perfect, not too prickly but invigorating.
O: Overall this is an impossibly drinkable DIPA. If had access to this brew I would pay the $3 a can and drink it every day. Can't wait to have the opportunity to do a blind side by side with the likes of Pliny and a few Alpines. It's the only way to really rank these top contenders.

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,
