Bright amber, graham cracker smell — surprising for an IPA. Strong hop taste balanced by malt. Creamy, velvet feel. Overall pretty good.

Just average. Tropical nose but not.iutstanding, middle flavours with little impact or balance. A bit hot from ABV with nothing bold to show for it. Would likely be better scaled back.

12oz can, best by 07/08/18. Pours a brilliant deep copper color with a thick & foamy ivory head. Earthy, piney, and citrus hop aroma. Hop forward with a healthy malt backbone and notes of earthy pine, grapefruit & orange zest; big sweet caramel malt balances out bitterness. Full body, pleasant carbonation, quite resinous yet still a bit creamy. This is good! I was somewhat skeptical but it's got some great old school west coast DIPA flavors.

Some pine and citrus up front. Not very bitter - I expected more of a bite. Sweet and biscuity. It dries out a bit at the end. It is a decent DIPA - but definitely not my favorite.

This is a little understated, was expecting a much bigger kick from both the hops and the ABV. That said, this is part of this beer’s charm, very smooth and drinkable for a DIPA. Lots of hop resin, almost sticky, clingy head with lots of lacing, more hop resin on the finish.

Poured in tulip. Surprised by the almost pink color. Sweet malt aroma. Not as much citrus hop aroma as I was looking for. Earthy first taste notes. Strong grapefruit aftertaste that is almost overbearing. Not very balanced for a double ipa.

Really good beer. The "4" rating, Very Good, captures my impression.

I prefer my brew bitter so this one actually tastes somewhat sweet / cloying, but I'll take it over 90% of what's available today. And the price is right. Last time I bought a 6-pack the cans were sort of pink colored. Squatters claims they will donate 5 cents to breast cancer research for every pink can sold. So, 2 reasons to try it and enjoy !
