4.5/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16 oz. can into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of off white head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A juicy and dank hop driven aroma with a scent of citrus and pine. Upfront scent of citrus hops with some grapefruit, orange peel, mango, passion fruit, and lemon with some pineapple. Dank scent of pine resin, cannabis, and grass. Malt hints of caramel, grains and cracker with yeast. A very nice juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hop dominated taste with notes of citrus and pine. Big juicy citrus hop notes of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, lemon, and passion fruit along with some pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Malt notes of caramel, cracker, and grains with some yeast. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy, oily, and drying.

Overall: A really good hop bomb IPA. Big juicy and dank hops with a moderate body.

4.58/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Unbelievably great. Straight dank hops. Amazing beer that drinks best straight from the can. Aggressive hop aromas welcome you as soon as you crack the can, and the darkest of hop flavors attack from the jump.

Grapefruit aroma, with some dank and earthy notes. Flavor profile is similar, but is quite juicy and with a bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel, dry. Overall, this one is a little more of a standard IPA than the somewhat unique Troll Way, but I enjoy it a little more.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

S: fresh marijuana with swampy herbaceous notes, citrus, and light malts.

L: hazy gold, 1" well formed white foam cap that leaves good lace and has good retention.

T: Big hop flavors dominate the palate with citrus, tangerine, and dank with light biscuity malt providing mild sweetness. The bitterness is medium high to high, the hop flavors are high and the malt flavors are medium to medium low. The fermentation character is clean. The beer finishes with long lingering bitter fruit aftertastes.

F: Dankbot is exceptionally creamy with a medium body and medium, very soft carbonation.

O: Dankbot has big bold hop bitterness and flavor.

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.

Lives up to its name. Drank on tap from a pint glass. Pours a hazy golden with a slight orange tint and no head. Strong piney hops aroma. Very bitter, not particularly well balanced but still quite enjoyable.

Pale amber color with a slight haze. A nice two finger head forms and slowly settles. Heavy lacing is left down the glass. Aroma is hop intensity. Odd is that it is called Dankbot and described as extra dank IPA and there is certainly dank in the aroma, but I get more tropical fruit. Also getting some pine and herbal elements. Flavor has nice hoppy flavor of tropical fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, and some herbs. Bitterness is not punishing and has a slightly sweet malt backbone. Lighter body and softly carbonated gives the beer a nice smooth texture. In the end this is one of the better IPAs in the market.

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.

Hazy, murky Orange with hop particulates. Smell is sweet candied grapefruit. Taste is sand pine sap and grapefruit juice. Amazing ipa of you ask me

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.
