From the can into a dimple mug, special thanks to sixpoint for generously sending me this beer, you guys are awesome!

A:Golden amber hue creamy 1 finger head generally clear

S:Good piney dare I say "resinous" bite in the nose, malt comes through warm nice and clean a bit of pineapple and citrus. Easily my favorite thing about this beer.

T:Smooth and piney, pineapple comes on strong in the beginning, sweet in a pleasant way, bitter but not overly so, bitterness becomes a tad more manifest as the beer sits, a very strong element of pine and pineapple mixing here, to say the sensation is unique might be going too far but the focus is certainly memorable and interesting, very much candy sweet though and through. Very good though I do wish there were something more daring and assertive about the taste

M:Mouthfeel is sticky and pleasant

O: a very good very welcoming DIPA, there aren't really any unexpected flavor a here but the level of focus placed on the interplay between a general pine note and pineapple is intriguing, don't get me wrong the other standard flavors are there but they really do take on a supporting role while the pine and pineapple have their dialogue. I must admit this is not my favorite style, nor is this my favorite example of the style, but it is an excellent and accessible beer that is what DIPAs rarely are: worthy of contemplation

Slightly hazy amber color with a finger of solid head that slowly settled to a thin cap. Heavy lacing is left down the glass. Quite fruity aroma of berries, citrus, tropical fruit, with a bit of pine and grass. Also a bit of berries in the flavor but more citrus, pine, and herbal qualities. Not very dank but bitterness is moderate to high but there is enough hop flavor payoff to make it worthwhile. Does not drink like a huge beer, so this is dangerous. Medium body and richly carbonated. A well done DIPA.

Great Double IPA. Pours with a big white head. Nice big hoppy taste along with a wave of some tropical fruits (grapefruit maybe but idk I am not a taste expert). Pretty good feel. Awfully easy to drink for a 9% beer.

From the can, this beer pours a bright copper with a bright white head that is two finger-widths high.

The aroma is hoppy (no surprise there!), and there is definitely a strong grapefruit presence.

The initial taste is bitter, but not overpowering. Allows the flavor to develop, and in the middle you get an almost pure taste of the hops with slight grapefruit. It finishes with a hazey pine/floral aftertaste with the bitterness lingering for some time.

The mouthfeel is initially sharp and then almost gritty. Very interesting for sure.

Overall, this beer was a really good DIPA. There are so many DIPAs that bend over backwards to slam you with massive hops. This beer does not do that. It is light and easy to drink, and even refreshing. Just enough different tastes to make the beer interesting. This is just a very drinkable DIPA... I better slow down!
