I was interested in tasting this beer. I heard mixed reviews about it. But the idea of a cheesy / malty beer got the best of me.
No question that the heavy dosages of malt gave this one a real 'heavy' feel. I didnt detect anything in the nose, in fact, even in the taste. Except that it was big and bold, very big, almost too much.

12 oz can poured into a pub-style pint glass.

Appearance
Deep amber with a 1/2 finger of creamy, off-white head that dissipates quickly. Hazy with light carbonation.

Nose
Grapefruit, mango, pine sap, caramel, and candied lime.

Taste
Grapefruit juice, mango, and sugar-coated lime. Dank greens and sappy pine. Firm caramel maltiness. Grapefruit zest and hints of onion in the finish.

Mouthfeel
Full bodied, silky, slick, and smooth with a relatively low bitterness.

Overall
Tropical, dank, and citrusy. Well balanced to keep the bitterness in check. Easy drinking for 10%. This is a great DIPA!

Scored some of this from a recent trade - Fantastic straight out of the can. Certainly top 3 favorite

Beer feels like perfect combination of both malty and hoppy - Malt slightly forward with medium to light bitterness compared to what you would typically expect from a 10% DIPA. Hops are very floral and fruity - difficult to nail down anything specific - deliciousnessssss. It finishes with something that I cannot pinpoint but it is excellent. This doesn't taste like the rest of the DIPAs out there - on par with heady and Hi-Res.

Awesome, awesome brew - keep up the great work
