Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with thick off white head that lingered. Great lacing. Aroma is cucumber, peppercorn, ethanol, straw, grapefruit, grassy. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a hop bitterness throughout. Overall this is a so-so brew.

12 oz. can, pours a clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of candied sugar, resinous hops, caramel, and floral notes. Flavour brings out loads of woody resinous hops, earthy notes, and light candied sugar. Quite earthy and woody, with a nice balance. Finishes hoppy, with low astringency. Very nice stuff.

12oz can from The Beer Shoppe (Ardmore PA). Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick frothy off white head. Aroma is boozy, lots of maltiness, and old citrus fruit. Taste is much the same. Old rotted grapefruit zest, tons of syrupy maltiness, caramel, slightly vinous, and boozy. Doesn’t taste too fresh. Can figure out the canned on date, but looks like it was possibly canned in March or April.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hoppy aroma. A bit of malt and a lot of earthiness. Certainly the hops is there, but there’s a dirty quality, a hint of citrus with the bitterness. Not bad, but not a standout, though the level of alcohol is well masked.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a mostly clear orange copper with lasting head and great lacing. Aroma is strong and pleasant, with more earthy herbal and perfumy hops more than citrus and pine. Taste is also more on the earthy side of the DIPA spectrum, with some lingering citrus and grapefruit. Strong overall, making it more of a sipper, even for this style.
