ONE PINT can
Served in an oversized, stemless, wine glass

This beer pours amber in color with burnt orange highlights. It has a slight haze. It is topped with an inch of off white head that leaves nice lacing rings.

The smell is dark with citrus.

The taste is dank and earthy. The finish is bitter and lingers.

Medium mouthfeel.

This is a solid IPA, but something seems off. I think it is a little old, but there is no date stamped on the can.

This beer pours a clear orange with an average head. The aroma features orange peel, pine, cannabis, caramel, mango, and pineapple. The flavor is rich and bitter, with notes of pine, orange peel, caramel, cedar, grapefruit peel, and cannabis. The mouthfeel is fairly thick with medium, slightly foamy carbonation. Overall this is is a nice, bitter IPA - almost west coast in style, but with a malt base that is not just caramel, and huge core of dank bitterness,

From a 16oz can:

Appearance: Gold, particles in suspension, good head.

Smell: Dank and citrus.

Taste: A little more balanced than expected. Bready with dank hop finish. Slick, smooth feel.

Overall: Dankbot is in cans so I will review it. Seems a little tamer in cans than on tap, not quite as up-front hoppy. Still a pretty good local IPA.

Insight takes the "craft" seriously and this brew is proof. Look is standard IPA in the glass. Smell just knocks it out of the park. Resinous hop-wort at it's finest. I could just sit here and smell this beer and be happy. Taste is just as good; earthy dank just lingers on the palate forever without being syrupy or overly heavy. This is a heavy weight beer but very drinkable. I love it and will buy it again.

Beautiful golden-hued beer, slight hop haze, off-white head. Aromas are all dank hops - citrus, passion fruit, pineapple.

Taste is citrus, tropical fruit, and a sweet flavor that really elevates this. Best beer I've had from Insight.

L-Deep Gold colored...light 1/8 inch head which does not last long..

S-Fresh...floral....grapefruit rind....tropical fruits....oranges...

T-First thought is tangerines....wouldn't call this super dank......more bright and citrus fruity with just some hints of a little floral/pine....deeper in touch of tobacco... Malt is slightly bready....nice canvas...

F-I'd call it a little thin for an IPA but not session IPA thin. Clean and easy drinking....could use a bit more body...

O-Nice beer. I like it. 50/50 on if I'll buy it again with the wealth of IPA options available but this is solid.

L: gold/yellow, bubbly head, great retention and lacing, clear to slight haze

S: Piney, earthy spice, hoppy

T: Green, spicy, pine, bitter

MF: Medium body, mild carbonation, creamy

O: I've missed this kind of IPA. Too often you get very tropical or too overly hopped ipa's. This is a reminder of what started the northwest IPA craze of a green, pine flavored, but not too bitter IPA. Loved it.

Poured a clear, golden amber color with a small, off-white head of foam. I hate to say it but it smelled "dank" - piney, earthy, resiny. Good bitter flavor with some sweetness and toasted caramel.

Orangish golden color. Large amount of head. Very piney bite off the bat with a sticky malt n citrus flavor to finish. It tickles the taste buds. Definitely has a bitter taste and a dry finish. First ever 'extra dank' IPA. Taste kind of like a double IPA in my opinion.
