16oz tallboy can, sample from the brewery.

Firm two fingers of head, lots of lacing action. Nearly clear with a hazy pale amber color. Slightly dank hop nose with suggestions of grapefruit rind, green tea, pine sap, star fruit, & pink peppercorn. Just enough crispness, a little chewy. Good malt foundation, its needed as the onslaught of hops is hefty. Big range of hop flavor, bitterness is no overwhelming though its still assertive. Good balance with letting the hops steal the show at the same time is not an easy place to land for any brewer. Lovin this brew.

Tall can...1/7/17

Lightly hazed, typical looking almond amber. Nice showing of fine film, thin collar and scattered lacing...Quality look to this brew

Juicy hopped up nose, I mostly get fruit.

This is a heavily hopped up brew, with all sorts of fruity/tropical notes being squeezed out of every hop fibre...pineapple all over this one and I like it....fresh and tasty...well worth a try

16 ounce can into a snifter.

Pours deep copper with blonde hues and almost zero head. Some lace develops.

Lovely aroma. Pungent and sweet and juicy pineapple and passionfruit. Cartons really captures a great aroma with consistency.

Taste continues the juiciness but more mangocentric. But hell there's pineapple and passionfruit and other tropical fruit species in abundance as well. It's just a restrained offering of these flavors, but still tasty. Touches of pine and grass creep in and a touch of toasted bread.

This drinks well. Medium body with a late-palate carbonation tickle and some dry bitterness to finish things. Smooth and easy to drink. If it's a DIPA that's news to me.

Damn that's a lot of hops. It's a floral and apricot aroma. That fruit carries into the flavor, along with peach, but it turns spicy and dry in the finish. There's a subtle green, earthy aroma and a little standard grapefruit. This is a big, bold West Coast style IPA.
