Notes: Anti-Hot is our 100% dry hopped Oat IPA. No hops were added during the boil or whirlpool of Anti-Hot to help keep the bitterness as low as possible. Brewed with an absurd amount of malted oats and double dry hopped with Galaxy & Nelson Sauvin, Anti-Hot is exploding with notes of passion fruit, lychee, and white wine grapes.

This DelMarVa (+ DC) adventure of mine has morphed into my latest CANQuest (tm) focus! I really had no idea that MaryCANd, especially, was putting out so much beer. 8=O It seems as though every time I feel like I a close, some more beers from that area Pop! up from out of hiding to surprise me. Further, I am back to work so I CANnot keep up the pace that I set during the Christmas/Winter Break. 8=( On top of all of that, even New Beer Sunday is off-limits due to prior CANmitments. 8=( Inna meantime, a shout-out to my local, in-person trader, @tone77 who recently dropped this off for me.

From the CAN: "American IPA"; "A Limited Offering".

The Crack! of the vent had them going three-for-three in terms of brimful craft CANs! I got yet CANother spritz across my fingertips, making me VERY happy since this is the equivalent of a Baker's Dozen. I then CANmenced a slow, gentle C-Line Glug into the awaiting glass, resulting in the formation of two-plus fingers of foamy, soapy, rocky, eggshell-white head with decent retention. Color was a deeply-hazy/lightly-cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). Nose was VERY tropical, not at all bitter, with a grape-y vinousness. Hmm. Mouthfeel was medium, but really slick & smooth on the tongue. The taste lacked bitterness, but it was interesting nonetheless. It had a pronounced tropical fruitiness with an underlying vinousness, adding up to something akin to a cocktail. Hmm. It was not necessarily my thing, but it was not out of spec for the style, either. I have been fairly impressed by this brewery thus far & this did nothing to ChANge my mind. Finish was semi-dry & while I would have preferred it to be drier, that is just me. This was a nice ChANge of pace, providing me with a pleasantly mellow nightcap. YMMV.

No canning date
Pours hazy orange, light head and mild lacing. Aroma's of orange and GF (mild), along with a light berry hit. Major citrus up front, and the blush of berries along the back. Juicy smooth, with just a hint of bitterness. Very little carbonation. Overall, a good tasting beer. It's caught up in the craze though. Thinking about the Anti-Hot name.. I'm going with my guess that EP didn't want us IPA lovers to suffer from hop burn. If that's the case, well done!

I love it when the person who adds a beer also reviews it. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has an extremely cloudy, golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of passion fruit. Taste is juicy, passion fruit, some orange peels, mild bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.
