Knockout for sure. My seasonal allergies are kicking my ass and I can still get an awesome dank tropical hop aroma. Looks perfect golden body with a creamy head. The palate is just wicked, taste aside for a minute, creamy head in to the medium body and the perfect amount of dryness. Flavor is pineapple, orange, other citrus galore. With a pleasant bitterness that lingers. Iíll admit I shared none of this and regret nothing.

16oz can pours a hazy yellow color with a bit of head. Nice dank hoppiness with some mild tropical flavors. Very smooth.

Can courtesy of Clint (starcross) -- cheers, buddy! This is a really tasty, somewhat middle-of-the-road DIPA that has an absolutely killer name and a truly amazing can design. Hoppy, slightly fruity, and bitter, with a bit of yeast character. Tasty but nothing that really stands out in this crowded category. Bonus points for the name, though.

Concealer (1088) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2016
Can. Hazy gold with a foamy, white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, earthy spice, bread and stone fruit. Flavor is grapefruit, mango, pine, earthy spice, light bread and stone fruit. Medium bodied, juicy smooth with a dry end.

Can. A- Peach, mango, grass. A- Orange color, clear liquid, white head. T- Grass, alcohol, tropical stone fruit, bitter. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- The can is hands down the best thing about this beer. 5 stars all the way. Itís not a bad beer but I donít think itís a Top 50 DIPA. Plenty of bitterness and dank fruits.

JPDIPSO (5299) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2016
Golden color with a lasting, moderate sized, off-white head. Sweet, fresh hop scents. Pale malt, tropical fruit and ruby red grapefruit. Light sweet start with a touch of malt. Middle brings in the juicy fruits and citric hops. Mild bite of hops in the finish along with a hint of the alcohol. Good juicy IIPA.

Picked up a 4 pack on a recent Chicago visit. Pours a deep gold with medium white head. Great aroma of tropical fruit and dank hops. This richness carries over to the first sip. Great rich flavor full of grapefruit with a bit of mango and a long, bitter finish. Great mouth feel throughout. Very good.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2016 Can. Clear semi-dark yellow pour, with a white head. Tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, somewhat sweet, light notes of caramel, moderately bitter, and citrus. Tasty DIPA, a bit sweet, but nice flavor.

Oh-ho-holy shit. This beer comes from panicaholic which means I owe him a huge thanks. Ninja vs. Unicorn is something of a legend here in the Midwest. Sadly, itís not available in my area. I was pretty excited to see 2 cans waiting for me in my Free Beer Week package. I practiced self-restraint by waiting a whole few hours to drink it. Orange pour - lots of head. Tropical aroma with big notes of grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple, and tangerine. Flavor carries it all forward with some sticky, piney character and just enough biscuit malt to be noticeable. This is a big IPA, but itís not catty or abrasive. Plenty of bitterness yet some juicy and nectar-like notes to keep things from getting too harsh. Beautiful stuff.
