4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can from Dutch’s. This is an incredible canned offering. So good that it makes me feel guilty drinking it straight from the can and I’ve got no serious qualms with drinking Modus Hoperandi straight from the can. This pours a very cloudy orange with a picture perfect white head. The aroma is amazing. Resin is the most appropriate name for this one. It’s like pine sap and honey comb. A little citrus for good measure. Flavor is strikingly clear and sharp. There is wonderful, dank herb and evergreen all over the flavor. The finish is sticky in the best possible way. Really, really delicious!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thanks to GraniteSkunk! Dirty orange pour, little carbonation, some lacing and a sweet hot orange syrupy hops aroma. Flavor is creamy oranges, bitter pine and finished mellow with a little alcohol presence. Very good, not super abrasive and over the top, but well balanced at 9%.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home. God love brewers who put IIPAs in cans! Pours hazy green-hued, copper/orange. 1-finger highly persistent cream coloured head, great lacing. Nose is spicy pine, juicy grapefruit, very woodsy. Flavours of orange, marmalade, quite bitter, very soapy, tea-like. Not famously complex, but bright, fresh, and grassy. A bit cheesy in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy strawberry blonde, with thick stick pearl head, that doesn't simply lace the glass, but coats. Aroma is globs of hops: grapefruit and flowery. Something off in the flavor. Citrus hop bitterness, malt backbone, herbal/metallic pungency-perhaps just the IBUs attacking my tongue either way it's offensive, ruining an otherwise attractive brew: I love the viscosity (and the tall slim can).

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a snifter. Love the "mini-tallboy" can thing.
3.5 A: Lightly hazed bright orange color. Two fingers of off-white, frothy/foamy head. Retention is poor for the first inch, then great for the second. Moderate amount of lacing is left.
4.5 S: Very nice nose on this. Aggressive tropical fruits featuring mango and papaya. Underneath that there is pineapple and a touch of orange. Clean maltiness overall with complementary caramel and a light neutral malt sweetness.
4.0 T: Unlike a lot of DIPAs that smell of a cornucopia of tropical fruits, this one manages to also keep the intensity of the tropical fruits in the taste. Mango and papaya are rocking it again with the others close behind. Mild to moderately breadiness. Moderate bitterness. Caramel maltiness. Great balance.
3.5 M: Medium body. Carbonation is at the upper end for the style, but still reasonable. Mildly creamy and could use some more.
4.0 D: Solid DIPA. Great taste and a stellar nose.
Serving type: can

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange with a foamy head that sticks around. Nice aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is definitely those sticky resinous hops but they are pretty floral and citrusy. It’s a really nice beer but the booze is pretty obvious. I like it!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red bull can...poured to glass. Golden orangish in color with a pillowy white head. A good amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma was hints of hops and malts, but thats about it. Smell translates to taste. I was expecting more. For a DIIPA you want that long sweet hop burst on the palate and it was not there. As others have said, the alcohol is hidden well. Potential to be a good beer, just needs a little more.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Light copper color with little lacing. Beer starts out a bit sweet and citrusy, with lots of hop bitterness at the end. This beer is totally in balance. 9.1 alcohol is pretty well hidden.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can: Pours a clear bright golden with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with lots of resiny piney hop notes. Starts with good fullness and sweet lightly toasted pale malts dripping with hop bitterness before a drier, slightly warming and lingering bittersweet finish. Certainly loaded with hops, but a touch too bitter for my preferences. A pretty good double IPA nonetheless.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark, murky amber with plenty of carbonation inside and a large off white foam head that is slow to dissipate. Smells of sweet piney hops, orange peel, sourdough and alcohol. After taking a while to kind of sit back and examine this, I think sourdough best describes the taste. Hops are moderate but the alcohol and sourdough taste are what sticks out to me the most. Leaves and alcoholy bitter taste it the mouth. A good offer for a high alcohol beer coming out of a can, unfortunately that rarely makes for a good beer.
