From the can, it pours a hazy golden amber with a small white head. Pineapple and citrus in the nose. The mouth gets the same, although it feels a little slick after you drink it. Enjoyable.

16oz can dated 10/9/18.

Pours straw-gold with a minimal head and chill haze. Retention and lacing is barely there. Piney and tropical in the nose. Pungent pineapple and earthy sap. On the light side of medium bodied with a thinnish but somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Ripe citrus aplenty on the palate with zero malt and a firm bitterness. Finishes with a touch of honey and pine-rubbed pineapple.

Nice beer but the mouthfeel is a bit watery. Plenty of hops and fairly dry.

PKG: 10/9/18 20 oz. Can. Opened on 10/15/18

A pretty clear, gold>yellow>amber coloration. A low-lying, white foam never really becomes large, remains solid coverage at a very minimal level.

The nose is just bursting with earthy pineapple, citrus, grains, red grape juice and various tropical style fruits from the fat hop aroma. A sweet, honey and caramel scented malty aroma is there, slightly buried by the pungent hops.

The hops are very impressive here, dry, grainy -earthy flavor's hit the palate first with dry and bitter effects. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, very crispy and dry going down. Celery and grass notes comes on next from the hops. Crispy and golden grain style malt balance rides in now, dried golden wheat, hearty malt flavor that is actually pretty complex, even with the heavy hops. Peppery citrus, earthy pineapple and black pepper are the flavor's i'm pulling from the rest.

I like Rises light, yet heavy-hitting malt charecter, golden but not hazy like the New England Style dipa's, but not nearly as sweet and heavy as the West coast style. This falls somewhere between both styles, the complexity is high for both the malty base and the high toned hop side. The extra crispy, snappy feel makes it crazy drinkable for a Dipa.

Pours out golden in color. There is a nice white head on top. The smell of the beer is blasted with hope aroma. The taste follows the nose with nice notes of citrusy pine. Medium body to this one fitting for the style. Overall it's a very nice brew.

Can from the Lazy Dog
Just a hint of haze in a light golden elixir with a tightly bubbled white head that slowly recedes. Citrus and earthy grass fill my nostrils as soon as I crack open the can. Light tropical notes and hints of licorice and spice. The flavor holds bits of bready malt underneath an onslaught of earthy grassy pine and resin. There are bits of citrus and fruit flavor but not as strong the aroma suggested. Light ethanol in the finish. Very well made and tasty beer!

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a mostly clear golden orange color with a finger of fluffy off-white head. The head leaves a ring of sticky lacing as it settles into a thin sheet.

The aroma is full of tropical fruits: Mangoes, pineapples, guava, and honeydew melon. Then comes a wave of grapefruit and tangerines followed by a bitter pine note on the back.

The flavor brings guava and melon; watermelon and honeydew, followed by some pineapple and grapefruit. Then comes a wave of sweet caramel malt. Finishes rindy with a subtle pine character.

The feel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. A bit syrupy and sticky, yet relatively smooth.

Overall, this is good. Really good. Exceptional flavor with good balance. Very well done.

Poured into a 13 oz Teku glass canned 5/21/18. Poursxa very attractive orange with a 2 finger white head that leaves big thick patches of lace behind.

Smell is tropical guava, pineapple, slightly earthy, some pine resin, and a little hit of grapefruit rind to round it out.

Taste tropical front to back guava, pineapple, some earthy undertones, pine resin, and a nice balanced shot of grapefruit that lingers for a few seconds, making you tongue salivate until the next sip.

The mouthfeel is Yogi (Bigger than your Average Beer), a nice soft mouthfeel with the perfect amount of life, not dry but slightly sticky from the massive amount of hops, and at 8.4% dangerously drinkable.

Overall this is world class, tropical bomb without all the haze. I drank this May 25th and it blew me away. Keep your eye on this place.
