3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wicked little 12 ounce can, tall. Very cool design. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of hops and biscuit. A sweet fruity beer, some resin, crystal malt perhaps, lingering grapefruit. Very rich and super dry. In an odd way it goes from no bitterness to quite a lot.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear amber with a 2 finger white head consisting of tight white bubbles, while at the same time being quite frothy and rocky like your mom. Aroma is of piney hops. Pretty bitter on the tounge, but not much malt to back it up. Still, I like this beer. The can it comes in is fucking awesome. Itís a tall boy, but thin and streamlined. Nice ABV, and decent price. I would buy this again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz can. Almost clear amber/orange liquid with firm, big, fluffy white head. Looks inviting and very much as I like my DIPAs. Big, flowery and perfumy aroma of citrus, flowers, grapefruit, pine, caramel, some tropical fruit and biscuity, bready malt. Really nice. Taste is quite dry (maybe light sweet) and medium bitter (expected more from 103 IBUs) with notes of fresh hops and some sweet malt. Very balanced taste, but maybe a bit light bitterness for the style. Medium bodied with nice carbonation and sticky mouthfeel. Really enjoyed this one! Refreshing and balanced.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Poured a large smooth head that was mostly lasting, fair amount of lacing, hazy body, fizzy, slow-rising carbonation, and an amber hue. The Aroma was malty, hints of caramel, and pine. The Flavor was mildly bitter, malty, and pine. The Mouthfeel was lightly tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, some tastes were very malty and took away from the hops, and other tastes the hops were very much upfront. There was a lingering hoppy aftertaste and this beer is worthy of a try.

12 oz. can from Steveís west in Madison. Pours a semi-hazy copper with a decent layer of white head. Lacing really coats the glass throughout. Aroma is heavy with citrus and floral notes. Tastes like...resin! Not as bitter as I was expecting but a very strong resiny presence that really hangs in the throat. Love it. Great DIPA.

Sampled from can at Standard Market, Westmont. This puppy zeroes in on the resiny character of every hop, bringing out notes of pine tar if youíre not careful. A deceptively light hop note in the nose, al;so just the same color as the Sweet Action. But a bigger malt backbone, and itís needed, too. A lot of resin sticking on my tongue, my inside cheeks, what have you. If I spill some on me, Iíd be a human Post-It Note.
