Pours out a dark honey color with a bit a haze to it. The head is thick with great retention. Lots of sticky lacing can be seen evenly around the glass.

The nose is mostly both piney and tropical. When you twirl the beer around that is when the tropical sweetness come out to balance out the bitter pine. Its solid.

Taste is nicely balanced. Its got a pretty strong piney citrus rind bitterness to it up front but there's a bit of a sweetness to it. And I mean a bit. This beer hits hard. Its for that hop fix. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Goes down smooth for a 9.1 abv beer.

I had this back in 2016 and forgot how good it was...enjoyed one tonight with my wife. Great hoppy bitterness but balanced. Forgot about the 9.1 ABV...shes's driving home!

I always come back to this beer, after many years - perfect balance of malt and hops. Extremely classy west coast inspiration. I'll take this way ahead of these NEIPAs from my local neighborhood in VT.

A: Cloudy. Dark amber. Nice head with lots of lace. Almost seemed to have a layer in it, like a black and tan.
S: Boozy. Sweet fruit. A bit of raisin.
M: (Mouthfeel) Exploding bitter impression, without lingering bitter. It was a creamy start then a watery wash.
T: What is this magic elixir? Almost a "Meat" like thickness? The raisin is at the back while some strange orangrapexoticfruitmagichop front and center, yet supposed to be way bitter, but not like a Lagunitas beer I said would "power the sun". This beer is one I'd call trouble. This is a beer to split and share 6 oz at a time from a brandy glass. Probably the best I've ever had from a can to date.

Poured from can

Look: Pours a cloudy golden amber with a moderate 1.5 finger (not sausage finger) head with plenty of small sized sediment

Smell: smell is piney up front and a sweet pineapple smell on the tail end

Taste: awesome if you’re an IPA lover however not as aggressive as described on the bottle. Hard to see this as 100+ ibu but I guess if they say so. Pine on the first take with a hit of malt in the middle and finishing up with a citrusy, malty concoction of flavors with a hoppy sweet ending

Feel: with 9.1% what do you think

Overall: at least 4.75 for this beer. Outstanding but only lacks the .25 for the lack of aggressiveness you’d expect from a DIPA

solid west coast IPA

Can from Wegmans. Medium amber with creamy head, rings of lacing. Aroma is astringent, medicinal, juniper. Taste adds some caramel and toffee to this mix., sweet and stinging at the finish. Nice textures and weight. Flows nicely over the tongue.
