Started seeing this on the shelves in NW Indiana and decided to give it a try. It was canned 12/21/15 and I'm serving it in my Weyerbacher tulip glass.

Look- Pours a brilliant somewhat cloudy gold color with lively carbonation that produces two fingers of white creamy foam. A beautiful looking beer.

Smell- Grapefruit, mango, and some orange peel. There is some cereal and a bit of yeast in the back.

Taste- Grapefruit, orange zest, a bit of passionfruit and lemon peel. A healthy amount of malt to balance it out.

Feel- A nice hop bite up front followed by a creamy and slick malt backbone.

Overall- I passed on this once and it sold out rather quickly being new to our area. Another shipment hit last week and I decided to pull the trigger out of curiosity and the $10.99 price for a four pack of tall boys. It was a wise decision as this is one flavorful beer that has a nice balance of hop flavor and slick malt making it one easy drinking IPA. I'd love to find a fresher batch next time to really taste it in all its glory. I'll be keeping my eyes open for this one in the future!

Poured into a Dogfish traditional oversized snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and some random splotches of bubbly surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Nice dry-hop aroma of piney hops and just enough malt backing to balance.

T- The pineyness continues and there's some extra earthy quality to the hop flavor. Very easy to drink for the ABV and has a moderate bitterness.

M- Slightly sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- This is my first Daredevil beer and it's quite solid. Definitely on the more earthy side of the spectrum, but delivers good flavor and drinkability.

Pours from the pint can a cloudy, murky amber, with attractive head of off-white foam. Lace is spotty.

Nose is nice tropical hops -- I get pineapple, citrus, mango...very very nice!

Taste is brisk and bitter up front, and noticeably carbonated heavily. I get sour grapefruit most prominently here. Lift Off is a refreshing IPA with a light, drinkable body (despite the heavy 7.2% ABV). Definitely a solid and well-done IPA -- not a game changer, but solid.
