2.91/5 rDev -20.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Pours a dark copper with a finger of head that slowly but steadily dissipated. The nose has mild hop notes, but also something else that is earthy and not entirely pleasant. The flavor profile is tilted slightly in favor of malts over hops. There is also an odd medicine-like flavor near the finish (maybe licorice).
In conclusion, let me say this: not every brewer should feel obligated to produce a DIPA – ‘nuff said?

Deep orange, hazy and "thick" looking- unable to see through it well. White head with light lacing, looks great!
Malt, citrus, orange, hops character and grapefruit
Very hoppy! A strong bitterness that lingers as a long piney finish, mild malt character, big mouthfeel and citrus character
I like this beer a lot and the brewery is a great place with great food. I had it on tap and I would suggest you do the same. I don't much care for the can phenominon that is going on with craft beer, so get it from a keg if you can.
Serving type: on-tap

I was surprised at the 83 on this one. Its not the best, but easily measures up to beers like hop slam in my book.
A - 4 - 4 by default, drinking out of the can, which is designed well.
S - 4 - pretty intense hops. Pine and citrus, nothing too special but not bad by any means.
T - 4 - follows the nose. Pine and citrus ( esp grapefruit)
M - 4 - intensely bitter. Alc a little noticeable. aftertaste is bitter grapefruit. Light-medium mouth feel.
O - 4 - Decent double IPA. Better than its rating for sure. Must be a really fresh can... I like it.
