473ml can. Golden pour. The aroma of this one is pure diesel leading me to think mosaic. Flavor is a good bitter wc ipa.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
473ml can. Clear golden shade. White head. Aroma of hop oils, grapefruit, pine. Taste is floral hops, white grape, light tropical fruits. Manageably bitter, in fact there is a distinct sweetness underpinning it. Really solid DIPA that isn’t far off some of the best in style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours clear orange, medium creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly, solid lacing. Aroma is pretty dank and herbal, cat piss. Flavor is light plus sweet and quite bitter, resinous with a strong IBU kick. Not a lot of tropical here, mostly pine, pot and palate slapping. Medium body, resinous, some finishing heat which is a bit surprising for a sub 8% beer.

Big can @ my parents’ basement, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks Armin! Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with a cream colored head. Dry, grainy, herbal nose. Vanilla cake, lemon, green hops in the aroma. A little spritzy. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Chewy and doughy. Spicy and resiny. Very distinctive. Pretty fine.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from sloth. Pours a decent orange color with a frothy head. Nose of hops, slight fruity notes. Taste is a classic east coast IPA... Hoppy but the malt presence takes away from taste and over all experience of a DIPA. Taste is average. Medium body. Overall nothing to write home about. Thanks to bert for the can!

East Coast Double IPA. Bitter in the taste, slightly hazy amber pour. Bright and hoppy but way, way bitter. That shit doesn’t fly on the left coast.
