[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

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.

F: Medium, well-carbonated, crisp, clean, dry, easy drinking. Sticky and slightly resinous. Dangerously drinkable.

O: A super hoppy and refreshing DIPA. Another winner from Melvin.

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.

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 !

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 …

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.
