I'm trying this at the brewery. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel and pine. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with subtle pine and citrus presence. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz can into a glass.

Look is a slightly hazy orange yellow with little to no head.

Aroma is herbal and lemon.

Taste is an intense bitter. Absolutely delicious.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz can onto a clear glass tulip. Canned on 01/11/17 on bottom of can.

A: Hazy orange-gold with barely 1-finger off-white head with pretty abundant lacing.

S: Dank, earthy, herbal, pot, grassy, and honeysuckle hop aromas with slightly grainy malt and no yeast esters

T: Flavor is very resinous with the same dank, herbal, grassy and honeysuckle notes with some grapefruit in the end palate. There is a bit more maltiness and sweetness poking through. Highly bitter and no yeast component that I can pick up. Flavorful beer and very dank and resinous/herbal.

M: Slightly tacky with medium body and good dry finish. Carbonation low-medium.

O: I really liked this DIPA and I would love to try it fresher. I hope to get to the brewery in Norfolk and do a brewery crawl there sometime.

Canned 11/22/16, consumed on 12/21/16

This drinks like a hoppy pale ale, was shocked to see it at 9.1% DIPA after crushing the first half of the can. Hides the alcohol very well.
