12oz can poured into my CBS snifter

A - Pours a hazy, medium orange with a two finger light tan head. Good retention and lacing.

S - Citrusy, oranges zest , lemons, grapefruit followed by a slight sweet maltiness.

T - Same as the smell, but a bit more malty.

D - Slight bitter finish. Good carbonation and a slightly chewy.

O - This is a nicely balanced IPA with a nice bitter aftertaste that stays a long time !

Thanks to ThePorterSorter for this one.

Poured from a can into a goblet glass.

Appearance- Hazy light amber orange with just a very little bit of residual head on it. The head is the thickest around the glass, with a little bit of lacing on the glass.

Smell- Pungent hoppy tang with tropical fruit salad all over it. Like a pineapple-mango-papaya-tangerine smoothie. Big orange zest notes on the finish.

Taste- Sweet and fruity at first, but fades quickly into a dry hop/malt finish. Dry citrus essence at the finish with strong, bright tangerine zest hanging out on the palate.

Mouthfeel- A bit heavy and thick, but with a smooth and creamy texture. A bit of lip tickling fizz at first.

Overall- A very good representation of the style, I would get this any time I have the opportunity. A very versatile, year-round IPA.

Cheers.

Lucky enough to have a brother in the Connecticut area, as this is really hard to get ahold of. This can is about 2 wks fresh, served out of a 12 oz can and into a Bell's Tulip glass. Thanks BostonRyan

A: murky orange-brown opaque body, not the prettiest beer at the ball. Pure white head of about 1-2 finers, good retention and lacing.

S: Grassy and piney, just a tad of citrus and grapefruit

T: A lot of hops on the body with extreme levels of bitterness with a lot of piney taste, some citrus notes are present as well. One of the most bitter beers I've had. No alcohol presence.

M: Puckering sensation from the intense hopping, but underneath is crisp and smooth with a great finish, obviously dry. Carbonation is moderate and appropriate.

O: A lot can be said about this beer and the level of hops put forward. For the bitter-seeker, this is definitely a must-try. However, most will prefer a beer with more balance. I don't think the body is big enough to support the huge hop burden. That said, it's still a very good DIPA and one to try if you ever have the opportunity.

Had this beer twice over the weekend. Shared pours in tulips, then had one straight from the can. The scent is heavy grapefruit. So much hop action on the nose. Bright and pungent. The taste went from 3.75 to 4.5 for me from poured to can. I pour all my beers, but this was so much better from the can. The taste is more balanced from the can. Everything you could want from a IIPA.

A - Thick haze. Shade flat, but what's there lightly off-white. Deep white peach body.

S - Wow. Straight woody pine with undertones of agave, mango, and grapefruit. Incredibly fresh.

T - Stellar. The flavor profile throws a bushel of fresh hops front and center and clears everything else off the stage. Parsley, rosemary, bitter wood, grapefruit pith, with a touch of honeydew mellon sweetness.

M - Light, creamy frame carries an unbelievably rich flavor profile. Quick, clean finish.

O - A tour de force of clean, fresh hop flavors. One of the best IPA's I've ever had.
