look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Live tasting, can into Duvel tulip, a very generous extra thanks to fubofnic.. Thanks Ryan!!

Appearance; pours a hazy golden orange color, with a finger of lush straw colored head. Retention is minimal, and the head quickly falls to a thin film. Lacing is minimal.

Smell; this one didn't jump out of the can, as I expected... I have opened a couple canned beers that literally jumped out of the can (stouts and porters included!) and I attributed that to the airtightness of the can for beer... Once the 'Bot was in my glass things changed, and most dominant aroma being orange rinds. Pineapple, mango and lemon rind take a backseat.

Taste; this thing is all orange!! The can, the smell, the taste.. Amazing, taste has a strong candied orange peel, and/or orange marmalade... Pineapple and mango notes creep in with a slight resinous pine bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel; lively mouthfeel with good carbonation, a slight prickly sensation on the tongue, I'd call Gandhi-Bot medium bodied, juicy in the mouth with a dry finish...

Overall; a rock sold DIPA, and certainly something I would seek out again... This is a nice DIPA, and refreshingly different from many of the IPA's available to me locally which place a far stronger emphasis on the tropics, and I felt like the candied orange peel dominant flavor really set this brew off... I really enjoyed this one, thanks again Ryan!!
