Pours a straw yellow with thick head and sticky lacing, loads of carbonation. Smells of hops, citrus, pine. Tastes very nice, dry hoppy beer with interlacing of citrus and dry grapefruit. A very nice DIPA, light to medium feel, very tasty.

Picked up a single at Total Wine in Las Vegas. Can had a couple months on it, but was still a solid brew. Would like to try again fresh

Can from Imperial Bottleshop.

A clear orange with a dense, white head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks great! The nose is a blend of grapefruit juice, pine and a moderately tropical fruit blend - mango, papaya and peach fuzz. A mild malt sweetness is present. The palate opens with a blend of honey-like sweetness, a potent grapefruit bitterness and some pine notes. This is followed by a wave of hop flavor - peach, mango, papaya, grape, Honeydew melon and tangelos. Drying, bitter, pungent on the finish, this beer is medium-light in body and moderately carbonated. The bitterness that lingers on in the finish is vintage Pizza Port - potent, brash, unapologetic and yet thoroughly welcome. A very well-executed DIPA

Sixteen ounce can copped from Pub 365 in Las Vegas. Pours a golden effervescent hue with minimal frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.

Pours a semi hazy straw yellow with hints of orange. Nice carbonation and white frothy head. Nose is of tropical fruits and melon. Taste of guava, papayas and rip pinnaple. A little bit of biscuit malt in there as well as light grasses. Medium body with a crisp tropical bit. Good beer

Poured into a 13 oz Weyerbacher tulip glass canned on 4/12/17. Pours a hazy dark yellow with a 2 inch sticky white head that leaves behind a massive ring of lace.

Smell is papaya, guava, tangerine, pinapple, and a subtle hit of grapefruit.

Taste follows nicely tropical as hell guava, papaya, passion fruit, tangerine, pinapple, and a nice shot of grapefruit lingers on the tongue awhile after each sip and begs for you to sip again sooner than you should.

Mouthfeel is a tad bigger than medium, kind of sticky from all of the fresh hops, not dry at all, and drinks so darn easy you would never know it was 8.5% ABV.

Overall this is a New England DIPA brewed in California and it may be the best I have had from anyone on the west coast. Thanks @Lingenbrau for this treat. World class.
