I got a can of this off the single shelf from my local Giant Eagle. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had faint citrus. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus peel presence at the end. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

I picked up a couple of bottles in a make your own six pack at Wegmans. I always like to try a new DIPA and have enjoyed other beers from this brewery. This beer was lacking citrus for me. It was mostly biscuit and malty and almost boozy aftertaste. My bottle was 6 months old so maybe not the freshest. Nice looking amber and was pretty easy to drink.

12 oz can, canned 6/5/18. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a small bubbly white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is very subdued - some grassy hops with some malt and fruit.

The flavor is a bit subdued too. Cracker malts and a little fruit with some slightly harsh bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a very subdued DIPA.

Pours clear copper with a whispy dish soapy head that leaves a dribble of lace trails behind. Pine sap, grapefruit, pineapple, caramel cake in the aroma. A brash hoppiness in the first sip - pinneapple, white grapefruit, herbal. A warming booziness follows suit, as does a butterscotch, toasted caramel maltiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Moderate bitterness and some alcohol heat in the finish.

A decent DPA, but could use a bit more hop aroma and flavor and a bit less booziness. Still worth a try.

Purchased at Staten Is. Poured into a 16 oz. glass. Hazy with a thin head that disappeared quickly. Smell: some citrus and pine accent. taste: Malty with a nice kick of hops on the end!
GLAD I tried it! A GREAT DIPA!

Pretty good DIPA. Pours a slightly hazy golden/light amber color with a medium size foamy white head. Good retention and foamy bands of lacing on the glass. Mild hoppy aroma. Taste is a slightly citrusy hoppiness wih some dry biscuity malt. Nothing memorable but still pretty good. Mouthfeel is nicely balanced with a decent level of hoppiness. Not great but well worth a try.
