16 oz can poured into a teku

A- A murky dark copper with a two finger white head.

S- Watermelon, some watermelon rind, definitely on the sweet side with the fruit, some caramel malts, some citrus hops, somewhat piney

T- Watermelon, almost jolly rancher like, citrus, some caramel malts, piney finish.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- Aslin did a great job with this, watermelon is sweet but works well with the malts and hops. 12.8% ABV is very well hidden.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Thick rich lathery, off white and khaki almost colored head, with fine swiss cheese bubbles and a large solid three to four finger tall top. Interesting body color, milky orange a bit, with a touch of glow but forgoing massive turbidity. A bit of almost melon red like in color strangely, with big tangerine highlights.

Nose is quite unexpected. A sort of spicy to herbal hop front, with a touch of bittermelon like character also. Touches of sour fruit a little but mixing also some very crispy almost jolly rancher sweetness but ever slightly. Tangy, almost penny candy, with well hidden alcohol. Not sure where this is going, but very interesed.

Palate is sort of what to be expected. Nice light bodied with bitter herbs and melon. Very good watermelon flavor on the finish, but manages to weaken the mouthfeel in a hint of watery touch. Large amounts of pine and astringent bitterness on the finish, comes out slowly but grows large and hits unmistakeably hard.

Neat tasting watermelon beer, fun creation, and surprisingly drinkable even at this high ABV. Bitterness is definitely getting a little off kilter though.

This thing is super cloudy with a murky sandy tan color and an off white head topping it off. Its head lasts very well for such a high abv beer. It slowly settles down to thin wispy layer over the top and runs up the side of the glass at the edge making some nice lacing. The aroma is beautiful and very inviting with loads of juicy citrus hops, tropical fruit and a hint of melon. The flavor comes at you with waves of tangerine, orange and mildly bitter orange ride, white grapefruit and fresh watermelon on a bed of pale bready malt. The 12.8% abv is barely noticeable and extremely deceiving. It's mouth feel is full and almost creamy with mild to medium carbonation.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a Willi Becher pint glass.
L - Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a fluffy white head that dissipates quickly.
S - Smells of tropical Hops.
T - Tastes of mango and vanilla with a light watermelon on the finish.
F - Soft mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.
O - Really easy drinking for a 12.8 % ABV Triple IPA.

By far the best beer to come out of Aslin, what they do with watermelon is god like and the finish is very smooth. To top it off it’s a Triple IPA and to have I taste like that with no bitterness is true mastery of control.

Utterly bizarre that this even approaches 12% - this thing tastes like some straight up light watermelon juice, masking all that bitter IPA-typical stuff.
