16 oz. can poured into a Sam Adams glass. 9.2 ABV & 100 IBU. Space Reaper incorporates Mosaic hop with Canadian 2-row, Cara-Pils, C-60, Wheat malts, and dextrose.

There’s enough of a malt backbone to support the immense hop presence. The brew hits all the notes that one would expect from a huge DIPA with a complex aromatic array of mango, citrus, berry and tropical fruit with an agreeable herbal and light cedar note to round it out. First sip communicates a large, refreshing dose of hop bitterness followed up by a light, malty, sticky, resinous, cedar-like finish with hints of stone fruit and Guava.

Pours an IPA light orange, aroma is floral, piney, really resinny, taste is heavy, slight citrus alot of pine and a touch of malt. It tastes like a 9.0%. But I really like it. Great job. P.S. Cool can.

Look -- Dark Orange
Smell -- Sweet smelling reminds me of Bells Mars IPA
Taste -- Taste doesn't necessarily follow smell, sweet tasting
Feel -- medium body
Overall -- Its an ok DIPA, I really dig the can, the smell again reminds me of Bells Mars IPA but the taste isn't good

LOVE the art on the can. ENJOY the soft mouthfeel and round sweet pillow upon which the hops are borne. LIKE how the ABV is nestled into the drink. but OVERALL agree with others that it's good but not top-tier. It doesn't offend but it doesn't mind-bend either. A must-try for all DMV area people (and collect that CAN!) but don't try to house a few in one sitting. You will get space reaped for sure.

PS i DIG the way the carbonation holds throughout drinking and bears the hops up. pairs well with chip n salsa. CHEERS!
