Wow. Got a quart of this in a can. Talk about shotgun goals. Has as much alcohol in one can as a six pack of Bud light. Solid deal considering that, as it was only $8.

L: Pours beautifully into a goblet with thick bands of white lacing and a slightly hazy amber body that glows red-orange in light. Thick and heavy consistency. Looks rich and smells hoppy.

S: Pineapple, peach, yellow grapefruit, mango, and passion fruit saunter out in a congo line with lemon and basil on the tail end, followed by whole grain bread and barley malt.

T: Creamy and rich, with mango and coconut easing into a tart and bitter fruity hop character of yellow grapefruit, pineapple, passion and herbal basil with a touch of lemon peel on the finish. Yum.

F: Very smooth and drinkable for the rich, viscous body.

O: I'm definitely taking one of these "Cannons" to Lightning in a Bottle. And I'm gonna drink it out of the Cannon.

Hazy amber color. Good lacing. Carmel malt hints. Hoppy! Hoppy finish with a small amount of alcohol bite. Piney, citrus smell. A good DIPA. Agressive.

Pours a hazy amber, with a finger and a half head of bubbles willowy-fine. Proper lacing.

A most sour scent. Citrus bliss.

Following the nose ... delivers the Creamy-sour malt crush, which we crave. Just half a hint of grapefruit. Lingering malt-pine.

(D) IPA s have so many alchemical accents, this one works quite well for me!

(Just smashed a giant 1 Quart/32 fluid ounce Can of this brutal brew ... shiver me timbers!!)

Dark in color, solid aroma. Tastes true to style with a slight malt feel to it.

Poured from 32 oz can into my trusty 22 oz glass mug (gotta let that head settle for a second filling to fit it all in). Dark amber colour and very nice lacing, very good looking beer with head retention like root beer, the head floated on the top and gave my mustache a foam mustache. Smells and tastes of the usual IPA hops but with a great malt feel.

Pours a clear dark amber color with a good foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is great! Big floral hoppy aroma. Kind of dank. Dank taste. Big floral hops. Some caramel. Very malty. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Tried this on tap at Mission last Friday, decided to get one of their "Cannons" 32oz canned from their tap that night. Poured into Tulip.

L: Dark ruby color, clear and very pretty, finger width off-white head that slowly recedes into a thin layer of bubbles.

S: Lots of citrus and pine hops, hints of floral. Grassy notes, and some grapefruit.

T: Well balanced here, lots of good caramel malt, still lingering bitterness and alcoholic bite. Initial flavors are actually malty with a caramel profile, the hop backbone takes charge coming through with some citrus notes like grapefruit. The bitterness shines through following that then smoothly morphs into some alcoholic bite. The finish is mostly pine. Very good DIPA IMO.

F: Medium body, low carbonation, rich hop oils on the tongue, semi-dry finish.

O: This isn't your typical DIPA and I can see why some people wouldn't enjoy the different take but IMO, different can be a breath of fresh air. This is a good beer and a very good DIPA. The above-average malt presence is kind of fun, I would prefer a little more carbonation but still not bad. This gets better as it warms too.

Thick. Malty. Good but not exceptional, doesn't "pop/wow" me. Taste improves as you get to the end (could be the 9.25% but I think it just mellows out real nice). Malty/carmel at the front end, not a hoppy explosion, piney at the finish.
