Tried this at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, CT. Came in a tulip glass with about a half finger of head leaving behind decent lacing. The color is a little odd, almost offputting when considering other dipa's. However, the aroma is subtle and floral. The taste is where this thing shines. Stonefruit and a subtle sweetness that pleases. No booze notes. The flavor has been refined to this point with thoughtfulness. Very nice beer.

Canned on 7/27/18

Pour offers a semi-hazy dirty orange with a soft but frothy finger of off-white foam.

Big aromas of guava and papaya strike first, followed by some caramelized peach, honeydew melon, mango, light booziness and grape peel; light earthy hops come in to round things out.

Tastes of dank citrus bolstered with raw white grape, fruity acidity, herbal pine; earthy mint, bubble gum, and tree bark make for a soft, naturally sweet the finish.

The Nelson-influenced white wine effects impart a nice drying element to the mouthfeel making a relatively big brew feeling crisp and clean while never allowing the flavor to depart.Moderately carbed, this one stays smooth while maintaining a presence; excellent for a DIPA.

A big DIPA playing strongly to some nice West Coast elements, and one that goes down like a session with great variation in flavors both approachable and nuanced. Quite boozy, but it wouldn't take much to be compelled to drink a few of these consecutively; just a well-rounded, bold, and upper-tier DIPA.

My personal favorite in a nice large can. Goes down easy and tastes fantastic.

A: Slightly hazy golden yellow with 1-2 finger white head. Decent retention and moderate lacing.

S: Pineapple, mango, peach, and apricot. Very pleasant fruit aromas.

T: Ripe peaches, pineapple. mango, white grapes, and apricots. A touch of piney bitterness.

M: Medium body with soft carbonation that leaves a silky mouthfeel. Finishes a little dry.

O: Excellent DIPA that brings the Nelson hops up front and center. Very well done!

Appearance - Pours murky deep golden color with soapy white head that looks like it will never go away. Sticky lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Smells of honeydew melon, grapes, light hop/pine, a little bit of sweet peach and mango.

Taste - The Nelson hops really stands out, mango and peach shine through as well. Great balance of sweet fruit and a hint of bitterness.

Feel - Medium bodied soft carbonation with just a hint of dryness at the end. A touch of heat from the alcohol at the very end.

Overall - great aroma wonderful fruit/hop flavors the alcohol is very well hidden.

This one pours a partially hazy dark orange, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

This smells like a stanky Nelson bomb- Nelson hops always give me that beautiful white grape thing, but also an overripe funky fruit thing. This beer is no different. I also get peach and grapefruit on the nose.

This is my first beer from these guys, and it's a fun one. It's all Nelson, so it's got a pretty wild hop character- white grapes, dirty earthy flavors, grassiness, peach, grapefruit, and melon. There's basically no malt character. You'd have no idea that it's a DIPA- it's not boozy in the slightest. It's hidden so well.

This is medium bodied, fairly crisp for the style, with a soft level of carbonation.

Beer'd seems to be yet another brewery jumping into the 16 oz canned hop game. Fortunately, unlike a lot of breweries, they seem to have nailed it.
