Notes: We double dry-hopped this beautiful beer to extract twice the oils for twice the enjoyment. Intense aromas and flavors of pineapple, passion fruit, crushed berries, citrus zest, pears, and crushed red berries. Soft and hazy, Infinite Highway has a super low bitterness that makes it dangerously drinkable.

Hops: Galaxy, Citra, Mosaic
Grain: Golden Promise, Flaked Barley, Dextrine, Dextrose

Opaque maize with a poofy off-white head quickly dying to a bubbly collar.

Dank and spicy, this exhibits mango and pineapple with a little cannabis. There are also accents of cracker, pine resin and allium adding complexity.

It's got a fluffy round medium body up front that comes to a chalk dry finish.

I know Dancing Gnome for its collaborations with Magnify but this is my first experience with one of its own beers. Poured from undated can into pint glass. It pours a murky dirty golden color with a half finger of creamy, milk-white head and lots of soapy lacing. It's a classic NE IPA look. The aromatic smell is pleasantly dank with onion, grass, pineapple, tangerine, lemon, pine needles, and floral hops. It features a big, bold taste of pineapple, tangerine, lemon, lime, oats, and earthy grass. The blend of Mosaic, Citra, and Galaxy hops is highly flavorful. There's a dose of pepper and a slight astringency at the finish. It has a creamy, plush mouth feel with moderate carbonation, and it's dangerously drinkable for 8% ABV. A second pour is definitely in order. Overall, Infinite Highway is simply an outstanding DIPA. I hope to enjoy more of its offerings.

Moderate pour yields a 1/4 inch white head over a cloudy, murky, light golden body with no lacing and head is gone after a minute. Nose of tropical fruit, orange, pine dankness. Taste mirrors nose. No carb, as I could tell the feel just looking at it. Overall, Bleh. Cheers!

I've said this many times, "IPAs" like this are giving IPAs a bad name.
It's now long overdue for these to get their own style category.

750ml swingtop growler being drank out of a Brew Gentlemen tulip glass:

Look: Pours an amazing hazy to cloudy yellowish orange color with about an inch of head! Lacing is present with great retention!

Smell: Big time tropical aromas on the nose! Orange, grapefruit, pineapple, and some pine thrown in there! Smells dank!

Taste: Taste is pretty much similar to the nose! Tons of citrus going on here with a bit of pine to balance it out! Very little bitterness pops up here and there as well!

Feel: Medium to full bodied with an awesome soft pillowy mouthfeel!

Overall: Awesome double IPA from Dancing Gnome! This may be the best beer I have had from them to date and I have had most of their IPAs and DIPAs! Glad I picked up a growler of this as I have missed all the can releases of this so far!

pint can

Pours super cloudy juicy orange and yellow. Head is a white lacing, dissipates to nothing.

Aroma of fresh orange and grapefruit juices and zests. Hints of pear and pineapple. Some sourdough bread malt.

Flavor of orange, pear, some pineapple, sourdough bread malts, hints of zest, berry, and spice, and a piney and zest hop finish.

Medium to full body, stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth. Pithy fruit tang aftertaste.

Really excellent NEDIPA, the tropical fruit flavoring makes it unique, but it hits all the notes you expect from this style perfectly too. Definitely one of DG's best and worth grabbing when you can catch it.

of the 3 I've tried, definitely my favorite Dancing Gnome brew. The taste on this one is perfect. none of the metallic aftertaste I've experienced with some of the other DG beers. golden haze look and amazing mouth feel. numbing level of hops. really great beer.

Pours a hazy, turbid, dirty golden color with a fizzy white head that recedes quickly.

Big time tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit, mango, papaya and some dank herbal touches.

The flavor is once again full of fresh tropical fruits. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit and papaya with just enough balancing bitterness to keep it from being a smoothie. Very nice tropical flavors with a bit of resin in there for good measure.

Full, smooth body with a medium level of carbonation. Drinks all too easily.

Overall, this was an excellent version of a hazy IPA. Very fresh hop flavors and a nice choice, whatever combination of hops that was used. An impressive brew here.
