473ml can - nice, simple, and surprisingly cozy label imagery.

This beer pours a hazy, yet bright medium golden yellow colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, loosely foamy, and somewhat bubbly eggshell white head, which leaves some decent layered cirrus cloud pattern lace around the glass as it slowly and evenly subsides.

It smells of gritty and grainy cereal malt, some orange, white grapefruit, and lemon citrus rind, a hard water flintiness, and further leafy, weedy, and piney green hop bitters. The taste is bready and grainy pale malt, a lesser crackery wheatiness, faded domestic citrus peel, some damp minerality, and more zingy leafy, piney, and gently lit-up floral verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its structurally supportive frothiness, the body a solid middleweight, and actually quite smooth, as that oats addition starts paying off dividends here. It finishes off-dry, the malt holding fast against the lingering mixed hop acridity.

Overall - this does come across very much like a blend of west coast and New England style DIPAs, which works just fine for this sports fan. However, while it holds its liquor rather well for an 8.3% brew, there just seems to be a certain lack of pop - hard to explain or quantify, I know.

Poured from a 473 ml can.
A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with athick white head and plenty on sticky lacing.
S: Nice tropical fruit hoppy nose.
T: Somewhat sweet and chewy fruity with mild hop finish.
F: A nice malt to hop balance for a double it is pretty smooth.
O: A pretty good double IPA very drinkable but for me it is missing a hop hit. Interesting how we are getting a crossover with the East coast hazy with a West coast hop.
