Melvin comes through with another winner. Super tropical delicious dankness with that pungent green onion smell and flavor that I absolutely cherish. Everything blends smoothly, so many parts of my mouth are activated with this brew. Wonderful !

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber with coppery notes and a fine, two finger white head with great retention and thick lacing. Aroma of pale malt, citrus, tropical and dank hops, orange, grapefruit, green onion, faint mixed tropical fruit. Flavor is mildly caramel malt, the same combination of citrus, tropical and dank hops as the aroma, orange, mixed tropical and stone fruit, mild green onion; finishes with citrus and dank hop bitterness and residual light fruit, mildly earthy. Excellent medium bodied with moderate creaminess and fine mouth feel. I haven't been disappointed by Melvin by any of their IPAs; they brew to my taste. This one is somewhat unusual in that the dank hop flavors are as clear in the tasted as in the aroma; usually I find dankness in the aroma and faint or absent in taste. The green onion is mildly evident in smell and taste and at a level that adds interest without interfering with other flavors. For my palate, a nice creamy body enhances the flavor enjoyment and that is true here. Very nice. Hits on all cylinders, look, smell, body and taste.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about twelve dollars. Have had one brew from these guys before. This was a bit of a miss for me, ok , but nothing special, would not buy again.

L: Clear gold with a thick, creamy white head. Near perfect retention with sheets of lacing.

S: Lemongrass, mint, pine, weed, grapefruit, orange, pineapple, cracker. Intensely dank and hoppy.

T: Grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple, catnip, and weed; with a crisp crackery malt backbone. Just lightly bitter and resinous.

[IMG] Poured into a 13 oz Weyerbacher tulip glass canned on 3/15/18. Pours a very attractive slightly cloudy yellow orange with a finger plus sticky white head that leaves loads of thin lace all over the place. 4.25

Smell is honey dew mellon, guava, tangerine, pine resin, and grapefruit rind. Kind of a East /West combination. 4.25

Taste follows this is very nice, mellon, tangerine, pineapple, pine, and moderate grapefruit and maybe a hint of onion/garlic but crazy balance. 4.25

Mouthfeel is bigger than average, plenty of life, maybe a tad sticky or dry, and goes down so easy at 8% ABV. 4.5

Overall this is another great DIPA sent from @jzeilinger . Old schoolish DIPA, with a east coast flare. Excellent brew, if I had access I would crush this stuff often! 4.25

Dark yellow in color with pale yellow hues on the edge of the glass and a light haze. Poured with a short creamy white foam with excellent retention. Medium, mellow citrus hop aromas with earthy, mildly dank herbal aromas beneath. Medium malty aromas with light bready notes. Medium bodied with soft, rich, medium carbonation. Creamy smooth feel followed by mild, boozy warmth to the finish. Earthy, herbal and spicy hop flavors grow from the start to the middle with medium light malt backbone. Medium, spicy hop bitterness through the middle. Herbal and spicy hop and malt flavors from the middle to the end. Finished with light, prickly boozy heat, and mellow herbal hop bitterness. Smooth, mellow, and easy drinking. Hop character became more complex as this warmed up.

Canned on 3/15/18.

A - Pours a medium to dark golden copper color with thick, frothy white lacing and lots of active carbonation. Great clarity, but filled with very small floaties.

S - Vibrant juicy citrus aroma: oranges, some sweet malt, some spiciness.

T - Zesty and spicy citrus rind, some orange citrus zing, peppery citrus rind, nice onion and garlic character that reminds me of the old Oskar Blues Gubna (when it was good).

M - Thick body with prickly carbonation that gives way to an oily, lingering spicy finish.

O - Absolutely love this beer. Melvin scores big with one. (!!!)
