4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy bright orange with a small white head and tons of lacing down the glass. Lots of particles in this one. Not sure if it’s normal or if this one is a bit older since there is no can dating.
Typical IPA smell. Loads of grapefruit citrus and pine waft up from the glass but with a slightly stronger caramel presence than some west coast style IPA’s.
The hops aren’t quite as prevalent in the flavor as the nose. It starts out with a good caramel malt sweetness and finishes with a strong piney hop character with a little bit of citrus shining through as well.
Mouthfeel is fairly thick and creamy with good carbonation levels.
Overall not the best DIPA I’ve had, but one that I enjoyed and have been wanting to try for a while. Will definitely seek this out again especially as it comes in a can!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(can - 12 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a thick and puffy white head. Fruit is the first thing you get in the nose followed by a juicy citrus hop note. Big hops for sure. The fruit and citrus come through first in the flavor with a ton of hops following it up immediately. Well balanced throughout and leads to a bitter and hoppy finish. Amazing.
