3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, shared by a kind soul, in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a hazy rust color with good head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is plenty floral and orangey. Itís mildly sweet smelling and has some pungent grapefruit.
The flavor is nicely bitter and plenty fruity. Itís got a little bit of herbaceous character. Itís not overly sweet but itís defiantly got some malt character to it.
Cool can, cool beer.... bro

Pours an orange/golden color with a thick white head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has some candied fruit...pineapple and grapefruit. Flavor is quite piney and resinous with nice bitter grapefruit and rind...pineapple is present but subdued. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry and very bitter earthy/resinous/rindy finish.

Quite good with flavors of grapefruit, orange, citrus zest, grass, and pineapple. Boozy, sweet, and maybe slightly over hopped in my opinion.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at LoDa Biergarten. Pours a copper color with white head. Very hoppy, grassy, piney, somewhat abrasive flavors. However, very enjoyable for an intense IPA.

Can. Pours mostly clear amber with fizzy white head. Aroma is bready and cookie malts, caramel, floral and citrus hops, and slight booziness. Flavor is hop bitterness forward with notes of citrus, pine, and light grassiness along with a solid malt base with a hint of sweetness and a touch of alcohol spice. Medium body and carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a can into a pint glass. Big fluffy white head, honey colored, nice carbonation running up the glass. Aromas of sharp lemon peel, orange rind and grapefruit. Hints of pine and sweet malt linger. Taste is pretty sharp. Intense grapefruit bitterness out of the gate. Some piney and dry earth notes push across the middle, providing a short relief from the initial hop blast. But, then more bitter notes follow through in the finish. Minimal malt presence...medium body. Relatively dry, slightly boozy and very bitter. A pretty bold beer!

12oz can -
I want to say it was fargingbastige6 that sent me this. Iíve kept this thing ice cold from day one in the FAR reaches of my fridge, to keep for a day where I was planning to drink some DIPAís to compare. So this was going up against some heavyweights in beer geekdom and it held itís own. I think some of these reviews are a little high, but whatever...itís beer.
The aroma, to me, just wasnít abrasive enough for a DIPA, but what it did bring to the table was a good amount of sweet citrus juice, some pine needles but slamming me on the head was the cotton-candy-meets-white-grape-juice-like malts. The pour was beautiful...a solid amber body, minimal head, some clingy lacing.. nice.
The flavor had me scratching my head though, as the initial flavor I got was the sweetness out of the beer. Thatís usually a sign for me that...well...the brewer likes a balanced approach. But the explosion of hops I got on the back end did help mitigate some of the sweetness. But the sweetness was there, so itís obviously supposed to be a more balanced approach, and itís balanced. No noticeable alcohol anywhere, which was nice. A semi-sticky mouthfeel, low on the carbonation level...rather creamy. The fact that itís availabl in a can is awesome and gets an extra bonus point just for that. Nicely done!
