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.

A - Very hazy, dark orange body, full white head and lots of lacing.

S - Pine, mint, a smattering of citrus notes, a touch of zest, and a definite burn from alcohol.

T - Front is the pine and mint, but quickly this is backgrounded, to be replaced with a Creamsicle middle, closing more bitter, with the zest and pith notes trailing out slowly.

F - For as big and burly this is, the feel is clean and light. The alcohol, apparent in the nose, is nowhere to be found when drinking.

O - A very nice DIPA, with lots of fine hop flavors, and strong malt core, and a surprisingly easy feel. Yep, this one is a keeper.
