A- poured into a snifter. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a foamy white head, good retention leaving a small sudsy layer. Some small resinous particles floating all around

S- fresh leafy hop resin pours out of the glass, some citrus/grapefruit notes, mango, fresh grass, light floral, underlined by light buiscity malt, a nit reminiscent of Heady

T- heavy dose of leafy and floral hop to start, some citrus and grassy notes kick in, leading to a slightly sweet tropical mango, the malty notes are slightly bready, and allow the hops to showcase, dry and leafy on the finish

M- medium body and carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel, leading to a silky smooth finish. ABV is amazingly hidden

O- this is an amazingly well crafted DIPA, it's right up there with Heady and has many similarities IMO. Leafy and fresh with amazing drinkability

A: Poured the entire can so that may explain the slight haziness. A golden-straw color with a light white head maintaining about 1/8th inch above the body of the beer.

S: Stone-fruit hop aromas. Freshly cut grass. Not overly citrus. Hops seem to balance well with a light biscuity malt character. Alcohol detected on a deeper sniff.

T: More of the grassy notes come forward with a nice bite of bitterness lingering throughout. Malt character stays out of the way for the most part. Just enough base-malt backbone to balance. Bitterness still lingering… Not saying thats a bad thing.

M: Just a tad high in the carbonation department. "A tad, Lloyd!?!?" Body is perfect for the style. Slight oily hop quality which is also good.

Overall I am definitely enjoying this beer! Im always a little iffy when it comes to IPA's from the east coast, but this may be one of the better ones I've tried for sure. Its talking me about 25 minutes to finish off a 12oz can. Again, not a bad thing. Worth a glass for sure. Cheers!

Poured this from the 12 oz. can into a snifter.
Nice dark amber, cloudy and looking to be unfiltered. 1.5 fingers of head, tangerine hints in the head.
Smell is nice but not overpowering. Nice tropical juicy citrus hops.
Taste is right in line with aromas. Some good bitterness, some solid hoppy citrus flavors. More in line with Sculpin than say, Double Sunshine or Heady.
Overall, happy to have tried it. A very solid DIPA.
