12oz can served in a tulip. Canned on 03-20-2018.

Pours a moderately hazy light amber with a medium sized head and lots of carbonation. Smell is tropical and resinous.

Taste is tropical and resinous in a nice way.

Mouthfeel is dry and resinous. Overall, very nice beer.

12 oz can poured into a Pilsner Glass canned on 3/20

A: Slightly to moderately hazy orange tan bodily. small white tiny bubbled creamy Head.

S: Slightly malty with a peach apricot back and a good dose of alcohol. Still lots of melon.

T: A lot if muddled alcohol flavor but some nice apricot, peach, cantaloupe, and a little malts.

O: This is a nice beer, I bet it popped a little more with a younger canned on date. although, even at this at advanced age it’s nice.

All I can say is that it's a good thing that this outstanding IPA isn't readily available where I live. If it were, I'd be drinking it by the gallon. For my taste it rates about as perfect of an IPA as I have ever had. It wins in every category, from appearances and aroma to feel and taste, this beer comes out a winner.
I purchased two 12 oz. cans through Tavour and now I wish I had bought more. If you can find it and you love a solid, hoppy and flavorful IPA, grab this beer. You're in for a magical ride. And you'll never want the ride to end.

This is it! Cincinnati's finest and quasi legendary DIPA! It equals it's esteemed reputation... subtle yet bold... mysterious yet accessable....boozy, yet not boozy.....double thumbs up!

Canned on 3/20/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden with a creamy white head that fades leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are subtle with some hints of garlic and onions. Mild tropical notes. Hints of grape. Some bread and crackers. Malts are there. The flavors are bold. Hints of grape and pineapple. Some fresh grass. Solid bitterness. Malts do their thing. Mild warmth in the finish, but it's not hot or boozy at all. Finishes dry for the most part. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's smooth and ultimately dangerously drinkable.

This is a solid DIPA. It's bold and subtle at the same time. The craftsmanship is on point. It's enjoyable and fun to drink. I like it. It's probably better than my "numerical score" might indicate.

This one is 11 days from canned on date. Hazy af. The nose is nice but nothing yuge (maybe too cold or a bit green). I really like the feel and flavor. Pretty impressive.

Edit: Nose improves as it warms
