Bottle. Pours a murky golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is super fruity with lots of hop juice, I get lots of orange, tangerine, peach and nectarine, tropical fruits like mango and pineapple and some sweet sugary notes. The flavor is again intensely juicy with lots of tropical fruits again mango, pineapple and passion fruit, some sweet orange and tangerine along with the peach and nectarine notes. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall an amazing DIPA!!

Sampled out of cans a couple times over DLD weekend, first was Scott from Houston at Flossmoor, so he gets the thanks: Nice coppery hue with a good head and lace. The aroma has notes of mango, peaches, tangerines, pineapple, pepper and clove hop esters along with some pine and grassy notes. Grainy and aromatic malts have what a DIPA should smell like. The taste actually has a nice balance between acidic fruitiness, hop bitterness and base malt goodness. A bit hop spicy and grassy with some minerally notes. I must say I was actually expecting the hops to be a tad more forceful. The mouth feel is lively and sharp, crisp and shockingly easy to drink. While this is very good and I would not turn down a chance to have more, not too sure I would place it among the best beers in the world.

Opened with the pull of the tab... nice silver can with cool little label. Drinkin it from the can the way it tells you too ! (Ive dumped it in the glass a few times as well) Anyhow... rich aromas of pineapple and a touch of pine...fresh tropical hops....mmmm Flavors are rich full and heady... Pineapple sweetness at the start that rolls into a crisp bitterness of citrus and pine... it starts to get a little sappy but the finish brings out a whole heap of tropical flavors again that make this beer a big WINNER !

Pours cloudy gold with white head. Drank out of the can as instructed. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus and resin...ridiculous. Taste is bitter all the way through. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy. Alcohol is very well hidden. Just a fantastic beer.

Yet another brew I had, but for some reason didn’t rate it right after I had it. Pours a hazy amber color with a big white head and nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit hops. Medium body with average carbonation. Excellent citrus hop flavor with a nice malt balance and a nice bitter hop finish. Taste is similar to some west coast DIPAs. Which is not a bad thing! This is Delicious.

16 oz can generously shared by colonelforbin. Thanks Mike. Pours a very cloudy light amber with a small light tan head that has decent retention and leaves a good lacing on the glass. The aroma is big mango, floral notes, light caramel, a bit of pineapple, and some sugar cookie. The initial taste is sweet with mango and pineapple going into a bit of caramel, sugar cookie, and some light dankness. There is a very light bitterness on finish along with some lingering mango. Light bodied. Low carbonation. I definitely could use a bit more bitterness and a bit less sweetness. Not bad, but certainly not in the class of the best west coast IPAs.

Pretty sure this was poured from the can at Flossmoor’s pre-DLD party. Sweet, resiny, fruity and all around awesomeness. Completely drinkable for a high-IBU DIPA.

Don’t get me wrong - this is very good stuff. I hate drinking anything out of the can though, no matter what the brewer thinks. It’s thick and orange with a lot of floaties. Frothy head fades quickly in the glass. Big hoppy aromas and flavors. Smooth pine, burnt rubber and lots of bitter citrus-grapefruit resins. Body is very heavy. This one hits quickly. I would much rather prefer six 12 ounce cans instead of four 16 ounce cans. Not as good as Hill’s Farmstead Society & Solitude #3.
