16 ounce can into a tulip snifter. Canned 10/26/16, had 12/13/16. Have had before.

Pours a nice looking copper/orange color, pretty clear, with a half inch head and some loose lacing. The aroma is lots of citrus- orange, mango, grapefruit, some lemon and pineapple. Light malt, a little brown sugar, a bit dank as it warms. Black pepper in the head when fully warmed. The taste continues the big citrus-orange, grapefruit, pineapple, some lemon, a good amount of brown sugar, malt, caramel. A light bitterness up front, a little earthy on the finish. Smooth, well carbonated, a good, medium body.

Great citrus, the brown sugar is flavorful and mellows the hops, while not making this overly sweet. This might not be at the top of the class, but it's one I really just enjoy drinking. Well worth a purchase.

Golden copper color, minimal hop haze, light tan head. Hoppy aromas, plus some sweetness from the brown sugar.

The taste is piney, resins hops and the brown sugar. This beer is dangerous - the brown sugar smooths this out to the point that you forget you're drinking a 9% ABV DIPA. Just a delightful beer.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass form a 1 pint can on May 20, 2017. Look is copper orange with a thick head and lingering lacing. Smell and taste is citrus, pine and brown sugar with caramel and bread malt. Feel is medium in body.

A - Pours a clear amber with a one finger white head. The head recedes quickly leaving a good amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is grapefruit and piney hops.

T - The taste is caramel malts, orange peel, grapefruit and piney hops.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - This is a decent DIPA. The finish has a strong bitter finish that goes well with the upfront sweetness.
