Talk Talk has that impressive off white root beer float foam that leaves ample spots of lacing. The smooth mass of opaque yellow with a touch of cardboard brown is what I imagine as near-picturesque for the style. (4.0)

This actually smells much like a classic DIPA to me. Grapefruit pith and pine, but there is a unique neoprene/ burnt rubber aroma. If I could describe it simply, I'd say "raw sap", for whatever that's worth. (4.0)

I find this very interesting and quite difficult to describe. It's very earthy in general. But more like fruit skins fresh off the farm. Lemon and orange peels, unwashed and over a bed of dried evergreen needles. However, there is a well hidden sweet vanilla like thing going on deep in the background. (4.0)

Despite what its looks could imply, this is quite crisp feeling. Sharp with balance before an intense bitterness and dryness take over. Light chalk and acidity. Easy to drink,but does leave a lip smacking dirtiness. (4.0)

I'm giving 4's across the board here. Intensely bitter yet easy to drink, but lacks a punch in flavor and aroma.

Cheers and thanks again, Jay!

Crisp and smooth taste. For a 8% DIPA it packs a punch while being a sneak attack.

Rarely does a beer served on draft bring the same flavor inside a can, this one delivers both at your bar and at your home. Solid.
