Thanks to JLindros for hooking me up with a can.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice hazy milky golden orange hue with a nice two finger white head that fades to leave a very thin, light blanket. Not much lacing.

S - Aromas of light bitterness, some earthy notes, big wave of booze though. Some very light peach notes, maybe a flash of tropical. The alcohol overwhelms the aroma though.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Nice citrus peel, valencia oranges, juicy notes, super faint tropical notes, very light juicy peach flavour as well. Finish is super light on the bitterness. Thankfully the alcohol notes are incredibly subdued.

M - Mouthfeel is very nicely carbonated, medium body. Really, really solid.

O - Overall this beer had a great mouthfeel and solid taste. The biggest knock is how harsh and boozy the nose was. Perhaps this was an older can and that's why. Either way, this is a beer I would like to revisit.

Thanks to roguekielbasa (Reddit)

Pours a decent fluffy fizzy 1/2 finger head that fades semi quickly, a bit of lacing, very murky tan orange color

Nose explodes with hops, citrus juice, orange juice, creamy wheat and pulp, lots of tropical generic notes but also some pineapple and papaya, a little dankness and pine sap as well, nice peachy stone fruit, tons of fresh peach actually, hint of alcohol

Taste brings a mild sweet malt, creamy wheat and oat combination, mild grainy notes, creamy lush oats, some mild alcohol flavors, and touch of perhaps peppery phenol alcohol thing, again juice bomb of hops, orange juice, nectarine, peach, peaches and cream, a little bitter rind and some earthy pine, dankness, mild tropical notes, papaya, I want to say guava but not quite, soft creamy as well, with a drier finish, bit more alcohol, fair bitterness, lingering rind, a touch of pine, and juicy creamy citrus

Mouth is med bod, very soft and fair creamy, lush and actually almost chewy, with a nice fluffy carbonation, it just sits all around the tongue and dances, a touch of alcohol but more taste than actual tingle or warmth.

Overall an interesting beer, nice characters, some OK ones but not the best ones, but a nice blend and presentation of everything, very enjoyable.

16oz pounder can poured into a Better 1 or 2 stem glass:

Look: Pours an amazing hazy golden yellow color with about an inch of head! Lacing is present with great retention!

Smell: Tropical citrus juice bomb! Also minor notes of pine on this!

Taste: Taste follows the nose for me on this! Nice soft mouthfeel with a small amount of bitterness to balance it out!

Feel: Medium bodied with an awesome soft pillowy mouthfeel!

Overall: Awesome DIPA from Dancing Gnome! Glad I scored a case of this on their can release as I missed all the other releases of this one!
