Thanks to Ultra-Plinian for the big NEBCo hook-up. DIPA from a can, yes sir! Orange haze, all in my brain. There's really not a better way to describe the look of this one. The slightly gray tinted, mostly white head waxes and wanes down to a thin, thin skin that never completely leaves the top of the beer bare, and lasts for quite a long time.

Pretty stankin' dank, with lots of pines, grass, and some resin on the back end in the aroma. Very hop oil-y over the first half, with the second half lending a heavy hand to blasting citrus peels, oranges, and some grapefruits. Your typical, citric and resiny hop profile... Good, but nothing too ravishing. Some herbal pepper on the back end, and I'm not really pulling much malt out of the aroma here.

The taste follows through nicely, with personification of the ashy and piney characteristics of the hops. The fruit is understated, but it's there; juicy grapefruit and some lighter, bitter citrus notes. There's a hefty bitterness that strikes the back of the tongue somewhere around mid-palate and leaves a long lasting impression. It's not gonna knock you off your socks, but it's pretty potent.

I finally get some resemblance of malt in the very finish with a bit of bread and crackers that only adds a touch of sweetness, perhaps because the lasting bitterness of the malt is still massaging my palate hard. Medium bodied, not too thin and not too thick, and surprisingly not as resinous or sticky on the mouth as you'd expect given the taste. Carbonated well enough to keep things rolling.

Very nice DIPA, though it's nothing to lose your shorts over. I can see why people love it, but it doesn't do much to stand out above the rest. That's not to say that it still isn't pretty delicious, though, because it certainly is. Goin' hard on that piney and citric hop swerve, this will make most hop heads happy, or at the very least, pleasantly content.

Super delicious local DIPA. Pour from the can is a nice orange amber. Not much head.

Nose is super resin y and sticky with pine and hops.

Taste is full of big juicy hops. Just a little citrus character. Really rich and full

Nice medium full body.

Delicious. Get it fresh.

This beer always makes me very happy. I would give it a perfect rating, but I have had the Peekskill Double Standard on several occasions, and I have yet to try those fabled IPAs from northern Vermont. It is just as good out of the can as it is on tap. Hopefully their new canning machine will not change that.
