Notes: Even Hell is looking for more diversity these days.

That is why a lot of folks claim Billy, from Human Resources, was appointed the new Lord of Darkness. Like Billy, this beer is a little unexpected. The unholy joining of El Dorado, Centennial, Columbus, Cascade, and Mosaic hops and 7.3% Alc. by Vol. leaves souls begging for a drink of water.

Not today, Satan ... Not today.

Finally a new canned beer from Mispillion. I discovered these guys last summer during my yearly Rehoboth Beach trip in Delaware. They've since started distributing to NJ. this was mislabeled a DIPA here even though it's a single IPA. The beer looks fantastic, almost like an amber ale with a huge fluffy head on top. Get a faint, resinous aroma. Tastes a bit citrusy, with that resin aftertaste and a slight lingering bitterness. This beer kind of reminds me of fresh Nugget Nectar. Hoppy, juicy and bitter. Nice!

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a conical pint glass; canned 05/22/18.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, orange amber with a more tha half inch, off white head initially, retention to a foamy rim and spotty lacing.
S: Aromas of honeysuckle, caramel, toast, and papaya.
T: Semisweet. Caramel malt flavor outsized with citrus, mostly orange, and pine present more in the background. Bitterness sufficient to finish so without strong aftertaste.
M: Light to medium bodied with modest effervescence. Juicy on the palate.
O: Bought this as single while out of state. I tend to like my sweeter beers to present with a bit more fruit, but, I acknowledge that that is simply a matter of individual taste. Solid, solid offering which I truly enjoyed.

Pours a straight amber hue, big bubbled white colored head with moderate lacing. Aroma consists of a sweet malt smell initially, subtle hints of orange peel and caramel. Taste is that same sweet malt detected in the aroma, with a piney and caramel-like after taste. Not as much tropical fruit going on like the aroma. Mouthfeel is relatively thin, moderate carbonation.

Single, 12 oz. can copped from Wegmans in Hanover Township. Pours a ruddy, copper hue with minimal frothing. Moderate aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile. Not bad.

Pleaseantly surprising find. Poured into a standard hotel juice glass (I guess), Little bit of haze with an Iced tea color (not lemonade), aromas do not hit you in the face but pleasantly mild fruity but I cant put my finger (or nose) on it. Taste is much more pronounced than the smell with a good dose of citrus and a sweetness that actually reminds me of Kings Hawaiian rolls for some reason, go figure. Good bang of hop tang on the tongue and overall a clean beer for me. I'm glad I purchased 6 of them and I think I'll check out some other offerings from this brewery.

Beauftiful light copper color and pleasant, but with touch of skunk on the nose. Not a whole lot of flavor but not at all unpleasant. Very light carbonation. Hops understated and a bit cheesy, perhaps from dry-hopping process? Liked it.
