Pours a hazy dark orange with a very short head - low carbonation. Smells like pineapple yogurt and citrus. Taste is bitter and malty, drying the whole mouth. Thick and creamy mouthfeel -- not too much bite. Overall, enjoyed it. Not bad.

Looks like it should, Turbid with a thin head. Lots of green onions in the nose. Slightly over the top with the bitterness, but then again we're deep into the NE style hype right now, and sometimes I forget that IPA's can be bitter. I'm taking some points off the flavor some vegetal notes. Mouthfeel is chalky, I need some water!

This stuff is fresh, not sure when it was canned. Poured and got a nice fluffy 2 plus finger sticky off white head that leaves behind plenty of webby lace as it slowly settles into a thick ring of bubbles around the sides of the glass. 4.75

Smell guava, manderine oranges, pineapple, some marijuana, pine resin, and grapefruit rind. 4.5

Taste follows tropical front to back, some dank weedy flavor, with a little pine and grapefruit bitterness that is actually exceptionally balanced. 4.5

Mouthfeel is above medium, a nice soft mouthfeel with gentle carbonation, not dry but sticky from a massive amount of hops and I think one them is Eldorado I may be wrong, and excellent drinkability at 8% ABV. 4.5

Overall this is juicy and a little different flavor that I really dig. Austin Street Brewery in Maine, really tasty stuff! 4.5

This one pours like a bowl of chicken soup- this is so turbid and chunky looking- like milky orange juice. There's a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells super raw, with intense grassy bitter hops, biscuit malt, and a big blast of orange and pineapple hops.

This is fairly good, but it's so muddled and raw that it's hard to rate this super highly. It's got quite the burn on the finish, and the hops up front are juicy and tasty, but ultimately quite muddled and grainy. This feels unfinished and green. There's a little bit of honey sweetness.

This is quite creamy, and a bit grainy- it sits in the mouth kind of weirdly. There's a normal level of carbonation.

This was a little bit disappointing. It's just too raw, and clearly needs a few tweaks.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a completely opaque yellow-gold color with a half finger of white head. The head is gone quickly, leaving a few spots of lacing along the way.

The aroma brings notes of overripe mango, grapefruit, and pineapple. There's a touch of sweet vanilla and orange flesh before a biscuit malt finish.

The taste is pure pineapple juice with a hint of lemon and orange. No malt to speak of.

The feel is medium bodied with moderately low carbonation. Very creamy with a dry finish. Tons of lingering bitterness and chemical burn.

Overall, a good but massively overhyped DIPA. It's got some solid flavors but it feels unfinished and muddled. Worth trying I suppose.
