4.03/5 rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Pours a golden color with a light tint of orange, decent sized white head, fades at a moderate pace, small bits of lacing on the glass.
Smell has a nice hoppy aroma, leans toward the citrus side of things with a bit of pine thrown in for good measure.
Taste has a good hop kick but isn't overwhelming, citrus on the tongue, piney in the aftertaste, bit of a malt presence to smooth things over from being harsh, nice crisp carbonation helps the beer finish dry, for being almost 9% it definitely does not taste like it since I can't pick up a lick of heat but I can certainly feel its affects.
A very tasty DIPA out of a can, wish there was a canning date on it but I'm fairly certain it's fresh considering how fast this stuff flies off the shelves.
Serving type: can

Thanks to rowingbrewer for the great extra.
12oz. Can into an imperial pint.
A: Poured a glowing orange color with a moderate head. Decent retention but nice lacing.
S: Plenty of citrus with orange, tangerine, and pineapple. Slightly resinous. Some floral.
T/M: Bitterness is pretty low for the style. Plenty of the same citrus with a bit added pineapple and some mango flavor as well. A candy like sweetness but without a big chewy mouthfeel. There is a bit more mouthfeel than I'd like in a dipa, but nothing outrageous.
D: Overall it's decent but I'd like some bitterness and a lower FG to dry it out a bit.
