Can stamped underneath "09/28/2019."
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a glossy burnt yellow/orange color with a subtle transparency about it. A one finger white foamy head sat there for a half a minute before slowly dissolving. Messy foamy lace with some bubbles inside popping gently.
The aroma had some sweet pine, sweet floral (almost lavender-like) playing with some freshly clean laundry notes. Lemon cakes and some biscuits mildly play further underneath.
The flavor plays mostly with the sweetness of the freshly cleaned laundry along with some pine and floral hops. Crisp bitter piney-ness flows evenly into the aftertaste with some biscuits and floral hop particles.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Some dryness invades but mostly in a respectable way. Carbonation felt good, like an American Imperial IPA. Finishes crisp with some dryness and pine hop stickiness.
Overall, I'd say this was a nicely done American DIPA done up in the West coast tradition.

16 oz can.
Canned 09/26/2019.
Moderate to vigorous pour yields a one inch white head over a slightly hazy, golden body with some sticky lacing. Muted nose of tropical fruit, citrus and a bit of dank pine. As it warms a bit the dankness sort of takes over in a good way. Taste mirrors nose somewhat with the pine asserting itself even more and finishing with a dank, pine resin bitterness. Nice feel and overall, "Got Dank?" Why, yes indeed. Cheers to Cousins Brewing and the Goodwater crew over in Williston, VT!!!
