16 ounce can, looks like the canning date is 3/14/18. Served in a Spiegelau IPA glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with a couple inch off-white head that stayed around for a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrus peel, marshmallows, sugar and vanilla. I think the taste is pretty much like the aroma, but with some caramel malt noticeable. But for the most part I think this tastes like a citrusy marshmallow. Unfortunately it started tasting worse to me the longer I drank it. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick with a moderate amount of carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. I don't think this is bad, but it just wasn't for me and I probably wouldn't buy it again. Worth a try once, though. $4.99 a can.

This one pours a nice, slightly hazy gold with a big fluffy white head. It slowly falls down to a few patches floating atop, with some small lacing. The color and initial head were super appealing, and then I was intrigued by the blast of sugar in my nose, with no trace of hops considering its an IPA. But they show up in the taste and the blend of sugars and hops doesn't quite blend, maybe its a tad too sweet for my taste. Hides the booze well and isn't bad enough on the feel or even the taste to pour it so it'll get me toasty and I'll move on.

Pours a turbid orange with a finger and a half of stark-white foam with good retention and lacing. Aroma is vanilla beans, sugar, toasted marshmallow with toast and caramel malts. Hops are hidden behind the sugar rush, but hit notes of herbal and floral. Flavor profile is vanilla bean, sugar cane, and caramel over toasted and caramel malts which combine to form the illusion of drinking a toasted marshmallow. It's rather sugary, but remains drinkable. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a velvety, semi-fizzy texture. Overall, a solid DIPA for those seeking a sort of dessert beer. Hop notes are minimal, and hide behind more stout-like additive flavors. Interesting and unique.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Pours gold with a fluffy white head.

Smell is tropical fruits and vanilla.

Taste is pineapple mango, vanilla, with hints of coconut. It is kind of like a marshmallow.

MF- Medium body and decent carbonation.

Overall a pretty good IIPA. The ABV is well hidden and I suppose it is fairly marshmallow-like.

Poured a slightly cloudy orange-gold body with quick dying good-sized head and lace ring. Aroma is marshmallow and vanilla bean with hints of tropical fruits. Smooth, fluffy body with no bitterness as the vanilla sweetness is dominant flavor. There are tropical fruit and earthy hops in background and there is a bit of marshmallow fluffiness which leads to full finish. Good balance and enjoyable beer.

L: deep golden, near orange
S: like a candy shop, even had some lemon heads smell
T: sweet, vanilla, cheap white chocolate
F: good medium body, low carbonation which was too low for the sweet taste for me
0: I gave it a 3+ for uniqueness but more hop and less candy would have been great.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a snifter glass; canned 03/14/18.
A: Pours a clear, orange-amber color with a less that one quarter inch head, good retention, and modest lacing.
S: Aromas of mango, peach, and caramel malt predominate.
T: Sweet, cloyingly so. Flavors definitely include caramel and pitted fruit, but the strong toasted coconut and caramelized marshmallow flavors are far too evident and do not add positively to the overall picture. Bitterness mild and frankly more might have helped.
M: Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.
O: From the nose, this really got off to a good start and I want to like this DIPA, yet frankly the flavor is way off due to the novel flavors. Nice try, but the marshmallow flavor just imparts a stale quality to the overall picture. These "dessert flavored" beers just don't work. There is a range of delicious DIPAs and this is not one of them. The high scores are not credible. I have tried two cans and I still have the same opinion.
