Got this beer in a trade. Big thanks to Leo for this one. Drank from a TEKU.

Look: Deep golden color with a rocky eggshell head and a full haze.

Aroma: Big fleshy orange on the nose along with lots of mango and just of hint of sweet onion.

Taste: Aroma translates to the palate. lots fleshy sweet orange with a medium minus bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Awesome medium plus creamy mouthfeel.

Overall(style points): I've had a lot of LIC before but this is by far the best. Super fleshy with just enough sweetness to heighten the citrus and tropical fruit. 98.5 points!

Pours a hazy orangish copper. Mostly opaque. I rarely admire a head, but the foam on this beer was gorgeous. Pillowy snow capped mountains. Lots of retention. The nose is sweet cantaloupe and orange sherbet. It smells like straight up dessert but the sweetness is far from overpowering.
The taste follows suit. The melon flavors really burst up front. I've never had a cantaloupe milkshake, but I have to imagine this is what it would taste like. It develops into what feels like an entire orange creamsicle in each sip. The finish is cake batter with a doughy malt presence. Mouthfeel is very big and very creamy.
I got a little heat with my first can a few days ago but this one doesn't taste anywhere close to 8.5%. LIC is hiding the booze as well as anyone these days in their DIPAs.
Cannons is very unique for the style. This isn't something I'd put in the top tier of NEIPAs, but it's very good and something worth trying out. With this beer and Full Monty, LIC has really gone all out with the super fruity, bitterness-free New England style. It's a nice compliment to their more balanced IPAs like Higher Burnin and Pile of Crowns, which are both outstanding in their own right. Overall, these guys are absolutely killing it.
