16 oz can, purchased at the source yesterday...$20 for a 4 pack...canned 11-2-17

Pours the expected turbid and inviting shade of lighter yellowy/orangy. L uxorious and frothy off white cap, and leaving loads of fine sheeting all over the glass.

Fruity/yeasty/juicy nose

Complex and super tasty, with more juice/yeasty goodness...notes of oranges, banana custard, a hint of ginger and white pepper...delicious...go trade for some if ya can

Hazy golden orange color with full head. Heavy citrus nose with slight dankness. Very juicy and hoppy - mainly orange and apricote with light malty finish - well balanced. Very, very drinkable. Too drinkable? Love Equilibrium DIPAs.

Growler into pint glass. Pours a cloudy amber with a coarse, fluffy, off=white head. Initial impression is in-your-face grapefruit, orange, mango, and caramel - lots going on here! Mouthfeel is fairly thick and very juicy - perfect for a DIPA. Alcohol is very well hidden. Finish is juicy and spicy. Excellent DIPA!

Released 4/7/18; drank 4/21/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque yellow/orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice eggshell head; a thick curtain of tree-rung lace.

Pineapple, green apple, caramel & dry grass notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel. Pineapple & cream flavors up front; dry grass & mild caramel notes in the nose. No booze heat.

A bit odd for the style; it's more complex if not as immediately satisfying. Good, not great.
