16 oz can into tulip. Dated 11/5/18
Look is fairly clear orange. Nose is light tropical fruit citrus. Taste follows nose and is very easy and smooth. Feel is light. Overall this is a great DIPA. no notice of alcohol in taste and a very easy drink. Would get this every time I can.

Tried this at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, CT. Came in a tulip glass with about a half finger of head. Clear copper color with a good thick lacing. The aroma is floral and fruity with citrus notes most prominent. The flavor was very citrus forward and very tasty. Nice dipa.

First rated on 5/11/18; new rating w/ review based on 8/9/18 drink.

Canned on 7/18/18

Pours a murky copper-orange with a good finger and a half of soft, white head.

Aroma has big notes of raw herbaceousness, earthy hops with a blunt dank edge, mango, peach, guava, and pine compacted in a tight, bursting bouquet.

Taste brings out plenty of dank hops and bits of residual herbal notes; dank mango and peach join the fray among a bevy of earthy citrus.

Mouthfeel maintains an excellent balance between juiciness and well-bodied carbonation; these elements support one another incredibly well, and lead in to a smooth, dry finish.

Smooth dankness and nicely balanced 'green' notes make for a DIPA that hits the spot with its strong earthy tones.

Appearance – Clear amber body with just a thin ring of head.

Aroma – Pineapples and mangoes, very fruity and bright.

Taste – Grapefruit and citrus pith, with some fruity hop resins. Very bitter but not overpowering.

Mouthfeel – Good viscosity, supported the flavors.

Overall – Pretty good, and the aromas were quite interesting.

Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into a snifter. The beer is a clear copper color with a large fluffy white head of 4 cm. The head fades to a sturdy surface layer and some clingy lattice on the sides of the glass. The aroma is hops from the moment the pop flips. I get pine sap and grapefruit notes with a bit of tropical fruit and some biscuity malt buried in the background.
First sip reveals a tingly carbonation and slightly sticky textured beer. The body is average and the beer is pretty easy to drink for 9%.
Flavor is some biscuit and light caramel malt but moves to hops right away with some grapefruit and also tropical fruit mixing and a little pine sap and rindy bitterness on the finish.
I still dont get any of the booze and find the beer almost too easy to drink for the booze level. Its a nice DIPA and Im enjoying it as I easily finish my can.
Check it out at the brewery.

Poured from can dated 9/15/2017

A: Clear orange with one finger white head that settles reasonably quickly but leaves some nice lacing.

S: Pineapple, mango, passion fruit, and tangerines mixed with floral hops notes.

T: Nice punch of tropical citrus with pineapple, mango, passion fruit with hints of grapefruit rind. Alcohol is extremely well hidden.

M: Medium body and average carbonation. Soft texture and very easy drinking.

O: Citra and mosaic hops. What’s not to like? This is an outstanding DIPA and nicely executed.
