look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had a yellowish / brown color and an extremely cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A pretty nice aroma of hops, citrus fruit, malt, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a decent bit of citrus fruit (orange, in particular) a tinge of malt (mostly in the finish; kind of overpowered by the other ingredients), a good amount of tropical fruit (pineapple, especially), and a good shot of hops (not overdone, but certainly present). This is a fruity, sweet, well-balanced and likable flavor. Pretty tasty.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a sharp finish. Medium-Bodied.

O: A well made, easy to like DIPA. Worth a try.

PKGD 09/23/20 stamped on bottom of can. Poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Hazy golden with 2-3 fingers of foamy off-white head with good retention and copious lacing.

S: Pineapple, guava, peach, and orange are strongest with medium-intensity fruity esters

T: Flavor is more intense than the aroma with waves of pineapple, guava, orange, peach, mango, and lime and finishing with heavily fruity yeast esters. Medium bitterness. The higher than usual bitterness for style adds a bit more definition to the flavors. Alcohol is well-hidden.

M: Soft but not chalky with medium body and carbonation.

O: A fine example of NE DIPA style with good palette of fruity flavors and a slightly more bitter edge with helps with flavor clarity and drinkability.

16oz can. Collaboration with Narrow Gauge. Poured out a clear, golden amber color with a small, off-white head of foam. It left sticky rings of lace. It smelled of orange, pineapple, grapefruit and toasted caramel. Sweet tropical fruit taste with a sharp bitterness and malty caramel backbone.
