You beer nerds are insane. This is a sick double IPA up there with the best ones. Clowns.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. can not dated, but probably with some age on it, since they did one initial run of cans so far, but it hasn't been selling due to the cost. Luckily, I found one in a mix-six section. I opened this one from the bottom, which was a bit messy. This is a re-review on 11/26/14. I originally gave it a 3.5 based off of draft.

A: Ruby/Amber tinged copper body. Thick head with lots of lacing.
S: Mild and light on the nose for such a big beer.
T: Weird initial flavor that is quite light, but balloons with an off-flavor, followed by an okay DIPA, that then recedes to a sub-par aftertaste.
M: Smooth, with almost no felt carbonation, but not exactly without carbonation. Weird kind of feeling.
O: Seems like this one has fallen off quite a bit. Turning into a bad malt bomb. This was slightly better on tap. If I'm gonna pay $13.99 for a six-pack of a canned local DIPA, it's going to be Double Duckpin.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a beige color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bursting with tropical fruits. Taste is very different from the smell. There are citrusy hops up front, but considerable malts at the finish. Taste is good, but not what I expected. Very little bitterness as well. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
