So much money for a cough syrup taste. It’s nasty and strong. Trillium and tree house can make 9 percent taste good but not this company. It’s too much money for shit beer

Pours a two finger white head, that fades slowly leaving traces of lace. Hazy, light amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit nose and taste is grapefruit, hints of malty sweetness. Higher abv, 9.5%, is hidden. 16oz black can from Concord Coop Concord, NH.

Pours slightly hazy orange. Smells of stone fruit and maybe some mild tropical fruit and some faint malt to balance. Taste is stone fruit, rind, and some mild tropic fruit. Also some orange? Juicy feel with just a faint touch of dryness. Flavors blend together nicely. Very good.

A: The beer is rather hazy yellow in color. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and some lacing on the bottom sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of papayas and blackberries are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of blackberries and papayas, and also has faint hints of pine and peppery spices in the finish. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has an interesting and unusual mix of aromas and flavors from the hops. The thing that I was most impressed about was how drinkable the beer was considering its strength because it did a very good job at masking any traces of alcohol from the taste.

Actually, its a tad on the hotside with ABV at 9.5 but I like it. Don't be fooled, this DIPA is no consolation prize, its worthy of consumption.
