Freshest by 10/12/17....Late in this, but I found it out of state in Ma’s fridge while visiting her for holidays. Left behind from summer, why wouldn’t it still be good?
It’s in a can.
Golden and rich in appearance. White bubbly lace and minimal head. Clear-hazy/ bright.
Smell is honey and light citrus notes of grapefruit/ orange.
Taste is an earthy/ pine/ pineapple/ grapefruit blend of clean DIPA. Melon notes are there after a little while of sipping, although in a bit of a medicinal way.
Feels medium-thick, somewhat dry.
Nice to sip a little.
Bitter and dry, this IS a tasty DIPA from a fine PA brewery. I can’t drink too much of it though. Big and dry.

This beer was a payoff of a bet on the 2010 Stanley Cup.....'Hawks vs Philly. Go 'Hawks! Beer poured a hazy copper with floated white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had faint waifes of bitter citrus peel. The taste leans bitter...but somewhat easy to drink even with higher abv. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

The grapefruit taste will prevent me from drinking several at a time. But still a good double IPA.

A - Cloudy golden pour, finger or two of head that stuck around.
S - Hops, but overshadowed by tropical fruits and citrus. Little booze.
T - Tangy grapefruit but pleasant, not puckering. The hop bite is subdued. The other flavors are well blended and subtle.
M - Medium/full bodied. Boozy open, melds into tropical hoppy burst.
O - Great execution. I will surely buy more, but I'm not entirely sold on the cost at $3.25/16oz.

L: Had this beer on-tap at Sedona Taphouse, poured into a pint glass. Had a golden yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

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

T: Tasted of light malt notes (mostly in the finish), citrus (orange), a good amount of hops, some tropical fruit (mango, papaya), and some pine resin as well. A vibrant, fruity incredibly well-balanced flavor. Not quite as hoppy as other DIPAs, but this doesn't detract from the overall effect.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a somewhat slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: I don't know if this beer is quite as good as its rating belies, but it is tasty and definitely drinkable.
