Picked up a single from Craft Beer Hop Stop on 10-9-17 for $3.75. Canned on 8-18-17.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head that has some good hang time.

Nose is malty with a hint of citrus.

Taste is floral, light orange, and finishes with a bitter grapefruit rind.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall a pretty decent double IPA that i likely will not have again.

Mostly clear, thick, sudsy head. Bright copper color. Aroma is caramel malt with pineapple and citrus. Hints of tropical fruit and melon, floral notes. Flavor is resinous and juicy, pine and grapefruit. The mouthfeel is a bit watery, but the flavor is solid. A very good beer overall.

Can poured into a Knee Deep Brewing Co snifter

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy eggshell white head that settles to a firm layer and laces nicely.

S: Citrus, floral, peppery spice, grassy, slightly fruity, biscuity malt, and a bit of caramel/honey sweetness.

T: Bright zesty citrus, lemon and grapefruit, peppery spice, floral, grassy, and slight herbal notes, fruity background notes, hints of apricot and passion fruit, biscuity malt, and a little caramel/honey sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Really nice West Coast IPA. For 8.5% it drinks dangerously smooth.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a tulip glass. Had a bright orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A decent aroma of hops, malt, a floral quality, and some citrus fruit as well.

T: Tasted of a fair shot of the floral quality, lots of bitter hops (almost too much), a big grassy quality, light malt notes, citrus fruit (orange, lemon), and an earthiness. Kind of a mess of a flavor, with some of the ingredients (the hops and grassy quality) running roughshod over everything else. Needs a little more focus.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a dry, bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is certainly not the worst DIPA I've tried, but I've definitely had better. Not terrible, but could have been better.

Pours translucent orange-yellow with decent head and solid lacing that lingers. Smells of malts and sticky juicy hops. Taste is thick pine and a hint of floral and orange and lemon notes. A hint of booziness. Feels thick and sticky but is quite drinkable. Kind of a benchmark Imperial IPA. Nothing super remarkable, but quite tasty and drinkable. This could be a benchmark/ baseline Imperial IPA by which to judge others.

Can dated 8/17/17 into pint glass. Pours a clear light amber with a substantial off-white head. Initial impression is floral and citrus hops, with a hint of pepper and other spices, slightly offset by a biscuity malt backbone. Hops dominate, though. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky; carbonation is perfect. Alcohol is quite well hidden - tastes almost sessionable. Finish is primarily citrus rind, fading to a slight bitterness at the back of the throat. Quite enjoyable.

Clear amber with white foam rings in the Troubadour tulip. Aroma makes me think it's Mosaic, with the apricot and hint of the onion family. But apparently it's not. Big hop blast as you sip.

Rather sweet and herbal. Bitter finish. It's a distinctive flavor, and "earthy" comes to mind. Something a little musty and dank with old blackberries and plum skins.

Overall this is boldly hopped but a little rough. It's quite interesting from the first sip, and the bitterness is not overwhelming. More mellow and fruity but plenty of acidity. From the 16 oz can date-labelled 07/19/17. Purchased at Elizabeth Station in Bellingham, Wash.
