Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 7/30/18; into a tulip.
Appearance- an oily gold with lots of small granules of sediment and very little carbonation; head is medium thick, soapy white head that leaves thick, sticky lattice work lacing!
Smell- oily hop resin and tropical fruit.
Taste - dank hop oil and pineapple, with just a touch of booze!
Feel - medium oily body with slight booze and tangy hop bitterness on the finish!
Overall- terrific DIPA that doesn’t do anything out of the ordinary and plays it safe!

12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy orange gold with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass.

The aroma is some sweet perfumey malt with lots of dank resiny and slightly catty hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with ripe fruit and lot of dank and resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, another solid DIPA from Melvin. A bit too dank and resiny for me.

Poured into a snifter. A hazy amber-slightly orange color with a thick off-white head. The aroma was somewhat muted. Mainly citrus - orange and grapefruit - with a slight herbal presence along with bready malt. The taste followed. Mainly citrus and some pine, balanced with a prominent bready malt and slight sweetness from the ABV. Bitterness is there throughout and increasing through the finish, which was clean and dry. Overall an excellent old-school DIPA.

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a 12 fl oz can on August 3, 2018. Dry hopping adds pleasant aromas and flavors without any additional bitterness. Nicely balanced.

12 oz. Can
Canned On: 06/26/18

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Canned 6/26/18, consumed 8/3/18

L: Mostly clear honey gold with a nice head that left a lot of lacing.

S: Wow, I really like this strong, full aroma of citrus fruit & peel, tropical fruits, grassy, piney, resinous, and danky hop notes. Really nailed it here.

T: Not nearly as standout as the aroma, still a nice West Coast DIPA mix of flavors.

F: Medium-heavy, strong & somewhat lasting bitterness with a sticky and danky feel.

O: Every Melvin beer I've tried has been in the neighborhood of solid-great, and this is no exception here. Aroma was the best part for sure.

12 oz can picked up at the source a few weeks ago.

Pours hazy gold with a moderate head and retention. Earthy pine in the nose. Medium bodied with a chewy, resinous mouthfeel. Piney hops on the palate with a balancing bitterness and faint malt. Finishes with Honey-drizzled pine.

Pretty tasty but pretty much any west coast IPA in Cali.

Gut reaction from a can:

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE

Still not seeing what all the craic is over Melvin. This is decent and drinkable, but hardly great for an imperial IPA (especially at this price).
