Thanks to @foundersasap
A rice DIPA stamped DEC 1918
Golden to straw in color. Fluffy white head quickly dissipates.
Slight nose of citrus, pine, and a dry earthy bitterness.
Flavor leads with a more pithy grapefruit, then a little pine, then some dank. But finishes mostly dry and bitter.
A slight body feel as expected from rice. Finishes a little slick.

Appearance is practically perfect in every way. Smell is old school IPA ideal: piney, dank, etc. Taste follows smell, first two drinks are heavenly. Third swallow finishes warm and boozy and that’s where this beer falters. Dial down the 9.5% on this one in order to hook me for the long run. Everything else is there and this one is certainly enjoyable, but the booziness and heat are distracting deeper into the pint.

Pours an amazingly bright straw yellow with an ample white head that is lacy and persistent. Visible carbonation and a slight chill haze.
Smell is bright lemony peachy goodness. Very little maltiness/breadiness, some sweet honey notes play with the peachy ones.
Taste is nicely balanced between a sharp lemon peel bitter and a light melon like sweetness. Grassy/herbal notes mingle in the middle and finishes very clean. Very little malt presence
Mouthfeel is remarkable for it's lightness. The body on this thing is more akin to many a lager as opposed to a double IPA. Hard to rate it fairly because it's not in line with most in the style but i wouldn't call it a flaw. I like it's lightness but just know that it is a very crisp beer that treads very lightly across the palate.
Overall this is a stupendous beer. So glad to see it in cans now and hope I can keep a semisteady supply in my fridge from a distance. Light body, great balance of citrus bitterness, light fruity sweetness, and complex herbals in the flavor. Drink this beer

Pours near transparent straw, copious head of med-large bubbles. Nose is sake, grass, white grape. Taste is grainy but smooth, herbal and white wine notes, along with some yeast notes. Mouthfeel is medium and satisfying with the nice carb. No heat, surprising given the abv. This beer could be dangerous. Overall this is a nice concept that's really well executed.

A very bright, crisp take on a classic West coast DIPA. Poured from a can, it presents a light, hazy golden color with a full finger of head. Pomelo and grapefruit pith all over it, with some modest resin and pine notes. The rice provides a balancing sweetness that is very subtle in the mid-palate, lurking underneath the other bolder flavors, but it also produces a sake-like, long finish that is a pleasing intermediary between dry and sweet.
