Picked-up two cans in a trade. No canned-on date that I can decipher. My second brew from these guys (not distributed to MA). Very good IPA, liked quite a bit more than Astro Zombie.

Poured into a Nordic Pint glass canned 2 or 3 weeks ago I was told. Pours a very hazy dark orange with a finger plus off white head that leaves big thick rings of lace behind as it slowly settles into a thick layer of bubbles. 4.75

Smell is guava, tangerine, pineapple, maybe a hint of peach, slightly herbal dankness, and grapefruit rind. 4.75

Taste follows tropical front to back guava, tangerine, pineapple, some weedy chronic flavor, and just mild grapefruit bitterness. 4.75

Mouthfeel is a big medium, perfect soft mouthfeel, sticky from the insane amount of dry hopping, but not dry, and at 8.3% so amazingly drinkable. 5

Overall this brewery has really impressed me. This stuff is killer. 4.75

Another amazing Aslin DIPA. Sweeter than some others. Nice smooth mouthfeel and pretty color. Citrusy orange notes. Just a hint of bitterness on the end. Don’t pass this up!

L: Poured from a growler to a snifter glass. Had a dark muddy orange color and a cloudy, opaque consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Fantastic lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of hops, citrus fruit, malt, a sugary element, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a little bit of malt (barely noticeable), lots of hops (never overdone), a bit of a marshmallow-type flavor, some citrus fruit (orange), and some tropical fruit (mango, pineapple, passion fruit). An interesting flavor. It's still juicy like an NE IPA should be, but the inclusion the sugary element makes it shine. Delicious stuff.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a vibrant finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A well made NE IPA. Extremely drinkable.

From a 16oz can, undated. Served in a tulip.

Pours a hazy, dull apricot puree sort of colour with a scant finger of soft, lathery head. Retention is just OK, leaving a small, wispy cap and collar.

Medium-to-faint nose of some sort of jam or marmalade. Soft, subtle, sweet and fruity.

Taste pretty much follows the nose, toasted biscuit and bitter, rindy marmalade. Toasted grain, pink grapefruit, papaya, burnt sugar, some spicy grass. Earthy and dry with decent bitterness. Finishes a bit dry and harsh.

Feel is creamy and mouth-coating, medium bodied with fine, tingly carbonation.

Overall, no real technical demerits but the flavour seems to not quite suit me - three hops that I'm quite fond of but which, together, didn't work out for me.
