Very hoppy, and very rich and malty. Well balanced - a very very fine beer experience. Had it from 12 oz cans and a growler.

I'm lucky to have a friend at KelSo who brought over a growler for me from a batch that was only a few weeks old.

Easily one of the best IPAs I've ever had.

Large citrus bursts in the nose and the taste.

Never would think that this is 11% ABV. It's incredibly balanced and drinkable. Dangerous, even.

Scored some of this from a recent trade - Fantastic straight out of the can. Certainly top 3 favorite

Beer feels like perfect combination of both malty and hoppy - Malt slightly forward with medium to light bitterness compared to what you would typically expect from a 10% DIPA. Hops are very floral and fruity - difficult to nail down anything specific - deliciousnessssss. It finishes with something that I cannot pinpoint but it is excellent. This doesn't taste like the rest of the DIPAs out there - on par with heady and Hi-Res.

Awesome, awesome brew - keep up the great work

It comes in a slightly hazy beautiful ruby amber color. There's a light head and looks like a beautiful double IPA. Much like Lagunitas Sucks.

The aroma is wonderful. Big fresh mango, resin, grapefruit, tropical fruits, dank dank hops.

The flavor is similar with sweet tropical fruits and then a piney and resinous finish. Then a smooth sweet bitterness comes along. I wish the beer was slightly more dry than sweet with the finish, but it really is a well balanced beer. It has a good malt flavor.

Next to Singlecut's double IPA, New York local breweries have put out some crazy amazing beers that you should try on tap. This one is a winner.

A - Yellowish-Orange with a little haziness

S - Smells very piney, and I got a very citrusy lemon note too

T - You can definitely tell this is a very strong beer right off the bat but it does a good job of not overpowering the beer. This is a piney, lemony DIPA that is very smooth for it being 11.5% abv. It's also very sweet.

O - This is a very good beer from Kelso that I hope they keep making. They nailed this one for sure and I definitely want more!

Hazy burnt orange with a creme colored head that leaves sheeting and lace. Nice retention and consistency. Fades to a light covering. Smell has tropical fruits, lots of pineapple and guava. Pine forrest with hop oily accents. Taste is superb. Caramel sweet malt front is quickly covered by a pine cone bomb that leaves a firm but restrained grapefruit presence. Tropical fruits from the nose flesh out the flavor. Dry finish has resinous pine and oil with faint mint. A lingering hop oil and breadcrust. Feel is medium weight with a crisp carbonation that has a light creaminess. Each swallow brings forth a cascade of superfine bubble that refreshes the covering that stays on the beer throughout consumption. So easy to drink this one It goes down like a standard IPA. No trace of alcohol anywhere. Crisp and refreshing this may be that alltime great session DIPA if one existed. Wow!
