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).

It is so great to have some time to noodle around with The CANQuest (tm)! I am starting to see movement in the backlog & I am having a good time while doing it.

From the CAN: "RIIPA Series"; "Chuck Morris is a Double IPA that will roundhouse kick, karate chop and machine gun its way to your heart. Dry hopped to perfection, power-packed like its namesake, but as balanced as a fighter doing the splits. Make sure to stretch first!"; "Rotational Imperial India Pale Ale Series"; "Fear the Mullet!"; "Recycle!"

Man, I came at this CAN like I was running wild inna streets! It took a jackhammer to Crack! the vent, but I'm more powerful than any CAN could ever hope to be. I backhanded the mutha to set it up for an inverted Glug to remind it who's boss-man in these parts. It decided to rush up at me, forming two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with decent retention, but in the end, it just left some lacing in its wake for me to remember it by. Bye bye! Color was a gorgeous Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity & as though things weren't hectic enough, here came The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus, causing their own brand of romper room ruckus as they vied for a taste. Nose smelled like somebody just cut down that pine tree across the way. 8=O Man, if this was a bag o' dank, no wonder they were fighting me so hard! Mouthfeel was big, thick & heavy, like a punch to my already bruised & battered tongue. F'n' Gelt Gang thought that it was pretty funny until I snatched averything away from them to hoard it for myself. Ha ha! The taste, interestingly, was NOT full-on pine, but instead, it was cut with honeydew & CANtaloupe. Mmm. I was not expecting this pleasant surprise & the pleasure musta registered on my mug since things began to settle down right quick. Finish was dry & left NO doubt that this was a big, boozy, bruising brawler of a beer, but it CAN be tamed. I now gonna go lay down …

12oz can served in a tulip. Canned 4/12/18.

Pours hazy amber, white around the edges, medium to small head, lots of carbonation. Smell is honey, hops, and tropical fruit.

Taste is honey, hops, tropical fruit, hops, hops, and also some resin. Mouthfeel is chewy and satisfying. Very nice beer.
