Had on tap in November 2014.

Appearance: Cloudy amber with rocky off-white head that left a fair amount of lacing on the way down.

Smell: Very nice aromatic hops. Floral and resiny, a bit fruity.

Taste: Pretty strong bitterness hits right up front, into a hardy malt backbone with just a bit of sweetness. Leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste. Did not notice the alcohol much.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated and pretty thick.

Overall: Good not-too-bitter DIPA. Plenty of hops, leaning more towards the aroma than taste, with enough malts behind it to give it some body.

12 oz.

Pours a deep clear honey gold, minimal sudsy white head retains as a lacing.

Smells of rich caramel and strong pine hops.

Tastes honey sweet with a bit of caramel and apple, followed by some potent pine hop that is bitter, but not overly so.

Smooth and thick with a syrupy feel, a slight sting of carbonation on the tip of the tongue.

Delicious wonderful IPA, among the better ones I've had in the imperial style for sure. IPA fans won't want to miss this. Hides its strength well, but not completely. Very enjoyable brew.

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.

12 ounce bottle without any sort of dating info.

Pours clear, a warm shade of darker honey amber, medium tan head, that stays and stays, leaving a thicker collar and respectable bits of lacing and sheeting. Piney hop nose. Dense, flavorful pine hop notes on the palate, with additions of lime, gin and grapefruit. Yummy stuff is all I can say...quite worthy DIPA
