4.46/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a conical pint glass; canned 06/20/19, code OLD NORTH.
A: Pours a hazy, orange tinged golden color (polished, but now somewhat dull brass) with a one finger, foamy, white head, cap retention, and sticky rings of foam lacing.
S: Fruity. Aromas of pineapple, tangerine, nectarine, caramel, and pine.
T: Semisweet. Flavors largely follow the nose. Light to moderate bitterness in balance with the sweetness and overall flavor pallet.
M: No more than medium bodied with solid carbonation. Drinks very readily and cleanly.
O: A very drinkable, refreshing American Imperial IPA.

From a 16oz can, dated 06/20/19. Served in a cervoise.

Pours a light-to-moderately hazy pineapple-gold with about two fingers of creamy head. Retention is very good, leaving a thick creamy collar and fat gobs of lacing.

Fairly intense aroma of sweet and sticky tropical fruit and, sure enough, some clean, woodsy pine.

Taste is precisely in line with the nose, a 50/50 split between sweet and sticky tropical fruit and spicy pine needle. There is a little earthy bitterness but mostly it’s sticky-sweet.

Feel is rich, smooth and creamy, medium-thick bodied with ample fine, bright carbonation. It might otherwise be a bit heavy on the palate but the carbonation goes a long way toward lightening it up.

Overall, there goes a highly satisfying DIPA. Everything ties together nicely. I’d definitely have another.

Canned 06/20/19, it pours cloudy gold color with a 1-2 finger thick foamy/creamy white head that faded slowly and left really impressive thick foamy rings as it went down. Aroma is as piney as it is citrus-y, which deviates from the normal Sand City nose which normally bursts with tons of citrus notes. Earthy tones and peppery spices add complexities and make for a really good smelling beer.

What's most noticeably different about this DIPA from SC is how dry it finished. It's smooth and has light carbonation, a mild bitterness but seems to evaporate and each sip and leave a piney/earthy aftertaste that comes off as chalky. It hides the ABV as well as most SC DIPA's and the taste is a mix of lemon zest, grapefruit, tart orange juice, piney hops, biscuit, tea leaf, mild peppery spices, tangerine and yeast. Some sips had 7-Up like sweetness and more zest than other sips, but the piney, floral and earthy components must be compliments of Resident Culture. Another solid collaboration out of Northport.
