Can. In a world filled with turbid soup, this one resonated with me. I was expecting to see this one pour amber/orange. Surprised and pleased to see it pour palely. Tropical but assertive hoppiness in flavor and nose. A breath of fresh air. Wish I got some more!

16oz pour at Community Pint in Spokane, free with purchase of an anniversary pint glass. 9 great IPAs on for their anniversary (and National IPA Day).

Before my phone dies: great looking, great tasting juicy IPA. Glad to have finally been able to try this. Hope it comes to town again!

This pours a dark yellow with plenty of suds and rings of foam in the big tumbler. Aroma of green tea and something like artichoke cooking water. Dank and sticky for sure, though it's more like beat you with the stick. Hoppy, bitter, leafy, and astringent in the aftertaste. A hint of grapefruit peel.

There is surprisingly little sweetness, though the malt is quite robust. Stone would be proud to brew this one. "Mo bittah, mo bettah," I believe is their motto. The pleasure decreases the more you sip on this, so I'm grateful for the high ABV at least. From the 16 oz can purchased at E Station in Bellyhampton, North Cascadia. The canned version is 8.1%.

16oz can (canned 4/23/2018) into a tulip. Pours a pale golden straw w/ a 1-finger loose sudsy head, patchy lace

Aroma is bright piney and citrusy hops, juicy and explosive.

Taste is dense with sticky resinous hops, sharply bitter and dank. Grapefruit rind. Pale neutral malt in the background but obviously this one is all about the lupulin.

Mouthfeel is oily and slick, seems about right for an 8.1% DIPA.

Overall a powerful, dank, delicious IPA.

Batch #13 - Tropical Slam. 16 oz. Can courtesy of Rick. Nice piney hops, slick, slippery, mildly astringent. Excellent IPA, smooth and elegant. Tasty AF.

Canned exactly one month ago. Fresh enough for us. Slightly hazy pour, light head, light amber. Hoppy - piney aroma. Nice carbonation. It's a very high quality DIPA, smooth mouthfeel over strong hop flavors and not excessive bitterness. Flavors of pine, floral and just the hint of some malt. Very light on the aftertaste. The DIPA level of ABV is well, and dangerously, hidden.

Plenty of good DIPA out there. This one is is clearly in contention.
