16oz canned 12-16-19. Opened 3-19-20.
1/2' white head on gold/orange opaque DIPA. Decent retention at 1/4", sticky and abundant lacing.
White grape, mango, floral. Deep and engaging nose of tropical and citrus fruits along with that unique white grape aroma. Creamsicle.
Lots of that good white grape tangy flavor, followed by tropical fruits and citrus laid up on a creamy malt base that plays the subservient role to the unique hop bill.
Bright entry, light to medium body with appropriate carbonation. 9.3% isn't evident...dangerous. Medium length hoppy, off-dry finish.
Very good.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a custom Sam Adams taster pint; canned 12/16/19, code ET TU FELIX?
A: Pours a hazy, golden-orange color with a slightly less than one finger, off-white head, rim retention, and limited lacing.
S: Aromas of lime, tangerine, nectarine, and caramel, with a pine note. Lime aroma increases as it warms.
T: Sweet to semisweet. Flavor profile follows the nose. More and more lime and caramel as warms. Strong bitterness consistent with the style and balancing the sweetness and fruitiness.
M: Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation.
O: Really a delicious take on the AIIPA style. Fantastic if you like hops-based fruitiness. And the Colonial Style can art is just fantastic!

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a soft burnt caramel color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that slid off fairly quick. Light lace. The aroma had some sweet onion danky portions, light sweet grass, some floral sweetness and a light malt backbone. The flavor blended fairly nice between the danky portions and the floral hop tones. Malty sweetness lends a hand of a nice balance to the hop components. Light aftertaste of the malts and the danky sweet hops. Came through fairly clean. Finish was slightly sticky, but acceptable along with the onion sweet hops. The palate was about medium bodied with a pretty good sipping quality. ABV was noticeable. Though I didn’t smell or taste it, the booziness was felt. Carbonation felt good. Overall, pretty good DIPA for the most part.

A: Poured from the half-growler into a Duvel tulip. Body is hazy honey-orange with a thin film of head that's gone pretty quickly.

S: Big nose of tropical fruit salad - pineapple, mango & papaya. Hint of spice.

T: Sweet caramel malt foundation is followed by the tropical fruity hops - pineapple and mango come to mind. Guessing they use Mosaic or Azacca hops in there. Finishes a bit sticky-sweet, and alcohol is noted just a bit.

M: Slick in feel; a bit sticky at the finish. Call it full-bodied. Carbonation not really noted.

O: Good. Not blow-me-away good.

Whoa -- mixture of pineapple and mango in the taste. No alcohol presence. Sticky-sweet on the back-end -- like ripe fruit, but not too over-ripe. This is a straight-up juice bomb and one of the best DIPAs I've had in recent memory. Excellent work here by Gun Hill.
