12 oz.can, courtesy of DCLawyer. Thank You Sir. Poured a lovely blood orange, slightly hazed, with a 1/4" ecru head that retreated rather quickly. Not much in the way of lace. Nice, dank, earthy hop aroma. Flavor is a bit more malty than the aroma would suggest. Semi sweet, but still enough hop bitterness so you don’t forget you’re drinking a Dipa. Well balanced. Alcohol is subtle. Body is to the full side with a lingering mildly bitter aftertaste. Nice! JDBaker11058 (2427) - Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2016
appearance: carefully poured--clear gold, a finger of creamy-to-frothy light tan-to-orange head; good lacing. aroma: blast of hops--citrus (grapefruit), pine (&resin), plus some dank, catty notes; malt is in the vein of floral honey and graham crackers. taste: syrupy-semi-sweet malts (honey and caramel) quickly overpowered by a tidal wave of dank, citrus, and tropical hops. finish: incredibly bitter, chewy palate, lingering grapefruit, pineapple, and pine. notes: Lest I incur the wrath of the commentariat, I’ll just say it wasn’t for me. Too far out of balance for my tastes. Big, complex, and well done, just wouldn’t try again. More for the rest of you! Can courtesy of Derek at Beerble study.

Cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity with peach, orange, pine, resin, hints of toffee and some weird glue/rubber notes. Taste is medium sweet, fruity, medium bitter. Finish is bitter with some piney notes, sweet malt and peach in the background, again some off-notes in the finish.
Medium bodied, average carbonation.
Guess I had a bad can, need to revisit.
Excellently complex yet balanced, citrus, hops, sweet malt, would buy again but space 2x IPA gives it a big run Bule (2311) - California, USA - JUL 13, 2016
12oz can pours a hazy pale brown color with a bit of head. Thick maltiness that doesn't overpower. Some tropical hop flavors. Hops and malt balance nicely.

Can via Sloth in trade. Rich and deeply malty, this sucker creeps up on you and lets you know that you are done for the night about halfway thru the glass. Consumed on my porch... which should be an UNESCO world heritage site. A perfect way to end a mental stress laden day. Bert! altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Can from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors.Nice amber body with slight head. Nose is hoppy, spicey and notes of honey. Taste also is hoppy, quite nice and spicy with citrus and floral notes. floydslip (428) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Cloudy orange beer with a medium bright white head. Resinous nose of pine, orange pith, and candle wax. Flavor is more of the same with juicy citrus, pine resin, and mandarin orange over a fairly sweet malty core. Not incredibly bitter, but full of hop flavor, this is a solid IPA that hides its alcohol content well.
