look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz can with a born on date of 6/25/18; into a tulip.
Appearance- an oily gold with some funk and few bubbles; head is a thick, foamy white that recedes quickly to a thin layer; lacing is surprisingly thick.
Smell- a little dirty herb, grapefruit and some other booze soaked citrus fruit!
Taste - very dank flavor profile that follows suit with what the nose lays forth; tasty if you’re a fan of bigger alcohol beers!
Feel - big IPA, this comes strong with the 9.2%, definitely a sipper.
Overall - this particular 6 pack is less than a week old, so I wonder if it needs a little more time for the booze to settle? Bold, no holds barred DIPA fans will absolutely dig this one!

A very nice interpretation of DIPA - - and not just a "bigger" version of Juicy Banger, has its own action going on. Love the taste and smell on this, too, so much more interesting. Had it from a can this past week (4.20.18 :) ) and it went down like cold soda on a hot day. DANGEROUSLY smooth and drinkable. Like a smaller Waldos' in a way... warning!

Clear, golden body; thick, sticky, white and frothy head. Pine and citrus aroma. Nicely balanced blend of light malt grain flavors with a bold hop bitterness; some boozy notes. Medium body; a bit of heft with residual sugars;primarily dry with the hops and alcohol presence.

The data on the can bottom indicates this example was canned April 20th, 2018. For a DIPA, it has retained a lot of hop and boozy punch. Good stuff and seems to age well.

Oh boy, what a treat. Might not have bought it had I known it was a 9.2 but in this case not putting the abv on the packaging has worked out well for all parties. Split a can with the wife and poured into a couple wide-mouth jam jars. Pours a light cloudy amber with a little collar around the top. Excellent nose on this one. Getting a lot of melon and just touches on some dank-hop funkiness that comes out more in the taste. Down the hatch those notes ride along a bitter backbone of dank hops that comes off clean. Has a medium-heavy mouthfeel and nice carbonation - this one's tight, and very much recommended. Nice one.

Fantastic double IPA!

If you like dry, bitter, piney, citrus hop bombs this is a wonderful example of a “West Coast” DIPA brewed in CO.

Station 26 and Comrade are the best producers of these types of IPAs in the state.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of pine, grapefruit and orange peel. Sweet orange and grapefruit taste with toasted caramel and a piney, sharp bitterness.

12 oz can, dated 6/25/18. Pours slightly hazy dark gold with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet bready malt with a little fruit an piney resiny slightly onion hops.

The flavor is sweet fruity malt with big resiny hops that show a little tar and onion. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, I like the fruit in the Juicy Banger better, this one is a bit too harsh and resiny.
