Fantastic West Coast DIPA.
L- slightly hazy yellow straw.
S- citrus, dank and pine.
T- resinous, citrus, pine and a bit of onion. Tons of hops but not overly bitter.
F- bigger, a bit of booze but ultimately dry finish for the ABV.

I’m my opinion, Daredevil is top 3 for hops in the state.

Pouring from a 16 oz. can into a becher glass. This beer pours slightly hazy and straw like in color. It forms a thinner white crown that dissipates quickly into a ring around the glass. The smell is piney and juicy with citrus notes. Has a sweetness detected too. The taste comes in with a cracker like dry presence mixing with the citrus. I love cracker presence as a background of IPAs.

A very solid West coast-style DIPA for a local Indiana brewery. An attractive golden honey color with a moderate head, depending on the aggressiveness of the pour from the 16-oz can. Pomelo, grass, and pine resin on the nose, with some balancing malt and honeyed sweetness on the palate. Intense bitter hop character with floral undertones, leading to a lingering bittersweet finish. Moderately full body and smooth mouthfeel. Edit: finishing out a 4-pack after a month of business travel, I can say that this review still holds after a month. The can is dated May 15, I'm drinking August 1, and everything noted above is just as true now as it was a month ago, so this DIPA doesn't seem to fall off quickly like some.

16oz can: this one pours a fairly opaque golden color. There was really no had or lacing to it. The aroma is good. Citrus, orange, resinous and other tropical hops. The taste is good. Similar flavors to the aroma, with some biscuit and sweetness. Nice!

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden with a head of white lace.

Aroma: Tropical hops all over the place. Solid.

Taste: Bitter grapefruit, tropical, orange. There is a lingering bitterness or acidity here that’s a bit off-putting, and a slight warming at the finish. Solid, but not a favorite.
