look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz can dated 4/7/18.

Pours gold with a chill haze and minimal head or retention. Malt with mild pine in the nose. Medium bodied with a tacky, syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet malt with a moderate bitterness and piney hops on the palate. Finishes malty with a lingering bitterness.

Tastes like a 90's west coast IPA.

Picked up a single from the Craft Beer Hop Stop 1-15-18 for $2.83. Best by 2-27-18 but stored in the beer fridge and Hop Stop's fridge the entire time.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head that left some lacing.

Nose is of floral hops with some hints of melon.

Taste is a biscuity malt base complemented by some melon and goose berry. Finish has a touch of rind.

Feel is medium bodied and pretty smooth.

Overall this is a serviceable beer but nothing special in a very competitive style.

LOOKS: A slightly hazy light amber with a finger of lasting white head. Fair amount of lacing.
AROMA: Very mild citrus and tropical fruit.
TASTE: Has a bit of an astringent bite. I can see why they say stone fruit on the website. It does have a peachy and apricot flavor, but, it is a bit harsh with that astringent quality. A little toasted grain as well.
FEEL: Medium-ish body, dry, and average carbonation.
OVERALL: Just need to get rid of the harsh quality and bring out the fruit.

ska doesnt get enough credit, i think they do cool beers, and have always made good hoppy stuff. this one is petty tasty too, bad hop contract its called, galaxy and el dorado i believe, and it tastes clean and bright and fresh to me, some melon and citrus in the el dorado which is really nice, and the beer drinks light for a double ipa, not a ton of body here and very little residual sweetness despite it having a decent malt backbone, and its really mild on the bitterness as the big one goes, so this goes down pretty quick for me. i like the fruitiness of the hops, kiwi and grapefruit and lime, zesty and new, almost alive. some light biscuit to the grain, a very mellow crystal profile, going away at the right time. perfect. i am surprised this isnt rated better, i know its more new school than modus, but this is fresh and dry hoppy and well made, i think its well better than its ratings. i havent had anything new from ska in a long time, so it was nice to get to drink this one. great hop profile.

L: Pours a slightly Hazy Brillant gold color with a small white head and some fingers of lacing.

S: Some toasted cracker malt mixed with ripe tropical fruit. Quite malty for a DIPA and the nose isn't overly strong.

T: Sweet malt and tropical fruit, a slight medium bitterness. Quite sweet for a DIPA.

F: Full body with creamy carbonation.

O: There are much better and more flavorful DIPA out there.

I expected more from this beer, has a lot of malt sweetness, body and bitterness, not near enough hop taste or smell.

12 oz can, best by 2/22/18. Pours clear gold with a medium rocky white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - bready malts with some sweet fruit and piney hops.

The flavor is sweet cracker malts and a little fruit with sharp almost metallic hops with a lot of bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, OK DIPA. I wasn't a big fan of the hop flavors.
