This beer will get you in trouble, holy balls. This beer doesnt taste like its packing 9.4% in it. Alcohol is completely hidden behind the flavor profile of this beer. This looks like orange juice, the color is amazing. Nose is great tropical fruit, grapefruit, papaya, pineapple. Mouthfeel is incredible, such a smooth and drinkable beer for how much booze it hides.

Pour from a 32 oz growler filled yesterday at Aslin.

Hazy as hell. Huge citrus, tropical fruit aroma. Juicy juicy juice. Slight heat from the booze. So fuckin' smooth without a ton of bitterness.

Might be my new favorite beer from the DC area.

Another Aslin winner. Not as hazy as I thought it'd be. More of a dark orange. Aroma is melons, little citrus, maybe slight bubble gum? Taste is melon, subtle bubble gum with a touch of hop bitterness. Mouth is avg for a DIPA. Not chewy but not thin. Good carb. Overall, a great DIPA from Aslin. These guys do hops right!

(Thanks Tim for sending this up. You're the man!)

Dated 9/20/17: Pours a bright and warm gold color, totally opaque with a thin off-white head that laces very nicely.

Aroma is a little dank with wonderful pineapple notes along with a bit of citrus sharpness. Love the combo.

Taste follows the nose with the citrus taking over more. The pineapple flavor disappears quickly, leaving a candied orange rind flavor to come in strong a linger to the end. Hard to tell what malt is behind it with all this flavor.

Feel is very soft and full, almost creamy. A light bitterness creeps in near the finish and leaves the tongue a little tingly. There is a slight stickiness left on the lips too. There is really no sign of alcohol burn - amazing for a 9% beer. They deserve credit for this.

Overall a fantastic beer worthy of the hype I have been giving them from 500 miles to the north here north of Boston (no one around me cares because its just too far away). Here we have our Trillium and Tree House and Bissell, but I still maintain that Aslin can give any of them all a run for the money. This is a superior NEIPA that any lover of the style should crank to the top of their want list. Stat!

L: Somewhat darker than other Aslin hoppy brews, but still retains that hazy and cloudy look we all love; healthy white foam head and ample lacing
S: Big mango, pineapple, and tangerine notes on the nose
T: Tropical fruits, apricots, oranges and Froot Loops - super juicy
F: Outrageously creamy - in line with other Aslin beers, but just so incredibly soft, chewy, and viscous
O: Gorgeous single-hop offering by one of the best in the game at the moment. Beautiful look and well integrated fruity and juicy notes. A wonderful showcase of the caliber of IPAs that Aslin routinely produces. Hats off to an up and coming brewery on a beer well done!

As far as IPAs go this is absolutely top notch! Had a good friend bring this back from Aslin to share with me and it was a thick & juicy hop bomb! Amazing stuff coming from these guys!
