Can sampled in a glass,
this beer was a burnt orange-amber (there was a hint of haze) and a off-white cover, good lacing,
this beer had aromas of citrus fruit hops (orange and a little grapefruit), hops had melon and faint pineapple,
nice toasted malt, faint bread and caramel,
malt sweetness with a little brown sugar sweetness,
the flavors were citrus and spice hops (a touch of herb in the background), toasted malt, a little caramel like notes, faint toasted bread,
malt and faint brown sugar sweetness,
it had a medium or more hop spice-citrus bitterness that lingered a little,
this beer had a medium mouth feel, it was creamy and had average carbonation,
I liked the combination of malt notes and hops in this IPA,

12oz can, FILLED 01-29-2019. Thanks to my friend, Ken, for giving me a couple of cans to try. Beautiful caramel colored ale, crystal clear with no haze, and capped with a tall & frothy beige head. Citrusy hop aroma with some pine, caramel malt, and yeast. Flavors are dank and juicy, zesty and piney; grapefruit, orange, bread crust, carameled grain, oats. Full body, ample carbonation, sweet malt gives way to pungent bitterness. Overall, I really enjoyed this one.

Thanks to Jimmykneecaps for this one. 12oz can poured into 14oz teku. Poured a beautiful, clean, clear coppery amber color with just under a half-inch of off-white head that had moderate retention and lacing. A nice malt aroma was topped by some crisp, citrusy hops.

On the tongue, those hops were softened a bit by some fruity hops, and a touch of malt sweetness. The body was solidly medium, with a semi-dry finish. Drinkability was very nice, i could knock back a couple more. Overall, nice brew. Worth trying if you see it.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 1/28/2019. Pours slightly hazy deep golden/orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, red apple, coconut, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, tobacco, peppercorn, pine, honey, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nutty, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, red apple, coconut, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, tobacco, peppercorn, pine, honey, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nutty, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, minty, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, red apple, coconut, citrus peel/rind, wood, mint, tobacco, peppercorn, pine, honey, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nutty, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, sticky/resinous/rindy, and fairly crisp balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 8.2%. Overall this is an awesome DIPA. All around great citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; dangerously smooth and fairly crisp/refreshing for the ABV, with the mellowly bitter/resinous/drying finish, not aggressive. Unique hop profile from MI Chinook, Cashmere, and Styrian Fox. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hop complexity; with a great balanced oat/malt backbone. Mild residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. A really enjoyable offering, and well made style example as expected.

12oz can, snifter glass. Darker caramel body, clear, one and half finger white head, good retention, splotchy lacing. Smell is bright caramel sweetness, light cracker, citrus and pineapple. Bread. Light mineral. Flavour follows, clean big caramel with pineapple hop aromatics, bitter floral bite, a bit of orange marmalade. Medium fuller bodied, slightly lower carbonation than expected, good floral bitterness tempered by a honey caramel sweetness.

The look is exceptional, caramel amber color and so clear you can read thru it. Head is medium off white and hangs around a while. Smell is cotton candy, got that in a couple beers lately, with some pine and grapefruit bringing up the end. Scent is muted but wonderful. Taste is even more muted than the scent. Resinous Pine and grapefruit, some other tropical fruits as well. Mouthfeel is, I think, exactly what they were going for with the oats, creamy, pillowy, soft, and sticky at the same time. Overall I’m digging this, especially with the cotton candy.

Canned on 1/29/19. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a burnt golden with nice clarity; fluffy off-white/light tan head that falls leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are floral along with some subtle hints of citrus. Some hints of caramel. Malts are there. The flavors are very clean, crisp, sharp and refreshing. More floral and citrus notes. More hints of caramel. Some fresh bread and crackers. Some earthy notes. Some pine. Mild spiciness. Nice hop bitterness. Malts do their thing without completely dominating. Finishes juicy and dry at the same time, but I'd say it's on the drier side. Alcohol is ultimately well hidden. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's fluffy, sharp, smooth and dangerously drinkable.

This is a solid DIPA. It's not flashy or anything crazy, but it's well crafted, enjoyable and fun to drink. Once again, it's clean, crisp, sharp and refreshing. Not bad at all.
