4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can, 0.355l. Cloudy amber brown color with thick creamy tan-like head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, caramel, dried fruits and some yeast. Taste starts with sweet caramel and toasted malt, following is resinous, fruity and grassy, mouthfeel is warming, while finish is heavy bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Bold, strong and tastes like DIPA...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a can dated 6/19/2015.
Aroma is rather malty with some moderate caramel, light toasted bread and cracker notes. Some grapefruit and pine resin.
Pours a reddish, copper-brown with a small, fairly thick, tan head that steadily recedes to the edges. Moderate lacing and medium small legs.
Flavor is somewhat sweet with some caramel, toasted bread and lighter cracker notes. Medium high bitterness. Medium grapefruit notes with lighter pine resin and hints of orange. Some light alcohol spice.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty disappointing IPA considering the hop pun in the name; it seems all the hops were used in the pun with none left for the beer. Way too malty without much hop flavor or aroma, just the bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured kind of hazy, copper in color with a nice, foamy off white head; spotty lacing all over the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus fruit, caramel and malts. Taste is mostly hoppy, some citrus notes, some soapy notes and a nice malty backbone. Nice, solid beer. Enjoyable and very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
35.5cl can, served in tulip glass. Pours dark orange, almost amber, with medium beige frothy head. Nice lacing, looks very good. Sweet malts/caramel and earthy hops on the nose. Very similar taste: the hops are there but it would be better if they had more protagonism, since it is a little bit too sweet for an IPA. The palate, fortunately, is dry with substantial toasty notes. Full mouthfeel, perfect carbonation. Not bad.
