Canned September 15.

A - Pale lemon/golden pour. Bright with two fingers of fluffy, pillowy white head. Good lace rings and a film of retention.

S - Citrus. Orange peel stands out. Very little malt to speak of. Sweet fruit.

T - Juicy fruit, citrus, a bit of harshness. Pineapple.

M - Medium bitterness is a bit odd, medium carbonation and medium body.

O/D - I could ask for more from this one. Easy to drink given the strength, but not showing nearly enough depth.

Poured from a crowler into a tulip. Pours a burnt orange/brown with nearly a two inch white head. Great retention and excellent lacing throughout. Smell is strong pine and citrus. Dank doesn't really mean anything, but it describes the smell of this beer. The taste follows the smell. The pine is up front and the citrus comes on the back end. There is a lingering hop bitterness also. Almost no alcohol burn, which is impressive for 10%. Feel is medium/heavy carbonation and a little slick. Overall this is a very good DIPA. It reminds me a lot of Founders Redankulous. Worth trying.
