Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish tulip. Cool can artwork. Love the snake.

L: Medium golden semi-opaque pour. Two fingers of off-white head. Sticky lacing.

S: Pine and resin... light citrus.

T/F: Grainy malts form the backbone of the beer. Lots of pine... peppercorns. Citrus and grapefruit... more noticeable in the taste than the smell. It's got a little herbal something as well. Nice and resinous. Moderately bitter but balanced. Goes down far too easy for its ABV. Finish is sticky and with a touch of citrus.

O: A pretty solid DIPA. A bit ahead of the pack, and nice flavor profile. Would definitely have this one again.

12 oz bottle with a bottled on date of 01/26/17. Three weeks old. Pours a golden orange color. Smell is hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine, pear, and even some apricot. Taste is very bitter up front with a hop blast and underlying citrus and tropical fruit. Grapefruit and orange peel are predominant here. Very sticky, but dry. Goes down smooth. I've had this beer before, perhaps 4 or 5 years ago, but I can't remember it being this good. This was extremely fresh and that might be why my first go round was not so memorable. I'll definitely pick up some more. Very good DIPA. If you see it, pick some up.

I really liked this one. It was similar in many ways to Melvin Brewing's 2x4. I only had one bottle in a restaurant somewhere in rural CT. Very enjoyable, a nice balance between hops and malt, and it did not taste overly hot or alcoholic.

Pours a copper color with a quickly reducing white head. HUGE citrus flavors and a nice astringency feel. It's a dangerous beer as very quaffable despite the 8% ABV. Nice beer

pretty middle of the road DIPA on this one. lots of citrus on the nose, some dank floral on the palate. comes in light for 8% but you notice the booze on the after taste. all in all pretty good. would be happy to drink but wouldn't search it out at all.
