beer_rookie (546) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Pours a medium golden color. Well carbonated. Big thick off white head that lasts and lasts. Great retention, good lacing.

Aroma is doughy. Tangerine and papaya. Maybe a little lemon and melon. Piney and floral hops.

Taste is more of the same. Heavy tropical fruit, milder citrus. Its sweet and sticky. Malty and sweet. Bitter, but more in the throat and aftertaste. Pretty good hint of melon.

Mouthfeel is full bodied. Sticky and sweet. Bitter, but in the throat. Hides alcohol well. Smooth, but sticky.

Overall, this is really good. Tastes fresh and clean. Hard to come up with anything negative. Its good. Id drink it again. Id buy it again, and I would recommend it.

Poured from the 12 oz can into a large wine glass. The appearance showcases a golden orange color with a dense 3 fingered head of dense white foam. The aroma hits me up front with papaya, mango and tangerine. Sweet cereal malt sets the base for the fruitfulness to shine through. On the taste there are more concentrated flavors of tropical fruit and tangerine with a syrupy malt spin.

ALLOVATE (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2016
At just on cool and into a snifter this one goes. Perplexed by the unexpected clarity of this beer - as in it shouldnt be that way! A brilliant, mid orange with little as far as head retention. You know that canned pineapple cooks shouldnt add onto a pizza, the aroma in this one has bucketloads. Amongst the syrupy pineapple is hints of passionfruit, caramelised stonefruit, medicinal floral notes and a wee tad kaffir lime leaf. On the palate there is some rough edges but otherwise it has the viscosity and oily texture of a hop bomb. Stewed fruits dominate; a mixture of pineapple, peach, pear and mango making it quite gammy and gummy. Sticky aftertaste similar to the fruit esters. Alcohol is well hidden for a 10er. Astringent more than bitter. Burnt rubber phenols poke through also. Light vanillin and strawberry hit too, which actually graces it. No complexity. Pretty hop forward as I failed in my search for malts, but they lack depth. Sweet to the point of tiring. Really couldnt dig this one. Not my particulars as far as DIPA.

355mL can from Slowbeer. Canned on 03/25/16 Bright orange body, uniform haze, holds dense white head. BIG hop driven nose! Bag loads of citrus, like a bag.. of.. citrus!? But seriously, its like a salad of oranges, and ruby grapefruit, and lemons, and mandarins. Green sort of melon/papaya character in there too - not much in the way of malt, touch of toast. Full bodied, but certainly doesnt feel 10%! Smooth, slick, moderate carbonation, scary drinkable! Theres a skerrik of toasty sort of grainy malt upfront but its BOOM BAM citrus & tropical fruit hops from there within - orange & mandarin, paw paw & papaya, mango, banana even. Theres stacks of bitterness there, but it hardly registers at a brutal 100IBU thats for sure. A formidable IPA - citrus overload!

Davros (3071) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2016
Pours amber with a large head. Nose shows resinous and piny hops, citrus, peach, mango and clean sweet malt. Flavours include truckloads of sweet clean malt, almost syrupy. Piny and resinous hops as well, along with lots of booze rolling through in the finish.

Maris (1483) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2016
From a 355ml can on 5/9/2016. Pours a clear medium golden with a tiny head. The nose features some light fruity hops but its very subdued for a DIPA weighing in at 10%. Take a sip and theres a more than decent caramel and biscuit malt backbone, with big doses of stone fruit sweetness (apricot and peach) and some pineapple. Theres a big assertive bitterness to stem the sweetness - it has a hint of grapefruit, resin and rye. Theres a touch of alcohol to let you know your drinking something big. The palate is a bit syrupy and the carbonation is modest. Very nice stuff.
