12oz can poured into an English pint glass. Big thanks to MarkJC1018 for hooking me up with a long-time want of mine.

Pours a hazy golden-amber, almost the appearance of apple cider when held up to a light. An initial 1.5-finger, off-white head subsides to a thin layer of foam atop the beer, with plentiful amounts of visible carbonation to keep that film alive . Leaves thick curtains of lacing down the side of the glass.

The nose hits me like a sack of bricks as soon as I crack the can. Powerful grapefruit, resinous pine, and subtler citrus and tropical fruit notes mingle pleasantly with an earthy, almost funky aroma and sweet malt notes. Potent and intoxicating.

Piney and resinous from the get-go, some sweeter notes are introduced mid-palate to balance the hop attack--pineapple, mango, tangerine, and blood orange mingle with caramel malt notes to give this beer some complexity. Finishes with a lingering piney bitterness as well as a faint, slightly unpleasant aftertaste that reminds me almost of chewing on grapefruit rind.

The beer is medium-bodied but smooth, coating the tongue nicely even as the carbonation keeps it snappy. Sticky, with a lingering, clinging dry bitterness on the back of the palate. The 8.8% is nowhere to be found.

On the whole, a damn fine beer. Slightly peculiar aftertaste aside, this is an excellent example of the DIPA style. Smooth, easy drinking--especially for its strength--and exceptionally well-balanced for most of the mouthful, as well as possessing a stellar nose. Delighted to have gotten the chance to try this New England gem.
