Visuals are what you would expect for an unfiltered IPA - turbid / opaque, lighter yellow, pineapple juice, creamy head. Aroma is earthy, lots of flowery hops - galaxy, mosaic, maybe a little vic secret. Taste isn’t as hop-heavy as I would have guessed based on the aroma - again I got a very Australian hop vibe from it upfront, very grassy - but it fades quickly. It isn’t “juicy” like a NE, nor does it have the malt bite or bitterness of a PNW. The bitterness is fairly acrid and stale, like old fruit left out in the heat. Not sure what they were going for here but it is a big miss for me. *opened another can a week later and it had tons diacetyl/ butter flavors. Disappointing for sure

Alright, I have to get it out of the way- it's gold, Jerry, gold!

This one pours a golden light amber, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like piney resinous hops, soft tropical fruit, and flowers.

This is really nice. It's 9.3%, and you would have no idea. It's so smooth, with a pleasant bitterness, and a soft creamy hop character- mango, peach, grapefruit, etc.

This is medium bodied, with no hint of the booze. The bitterness lingers slightly.

This is a really nice beer, and obviously a great reference.

Hazy dark orange with a dense off-white cream.

Smell is orange, pineapple, pine and a hint of vanilla.

Taste is slightly more dank with onion, pine, orange, pineapple and toast.

Medium crisp body with some chew.

16oz pounder can poured into an East End Brewing snifter:

Look: Pours an amazing hazy golden yellow color with about an inch of head. Lacing is present with pretty good retention.

Smell: Juicy, tropical notes on the nose along with some pine!

Taste: Taste very similar to the nose for me. Lots of juicy and tropical notes! Some piney notes also present with minor bitterness which is nice. This is very crushable at 9% as well!

Feel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Very solid DIPA from the crew at Voodoo. Step behind Space Cadet in my opinion but not very far behind. Glad I was able to score a 4 pack of these cans. I will be revisiting this DIPA the next time it comes out whether in cans or via growler fill!
