Pours a medium golden color. Well carbonated. Big thick off white head that lasts and lasts. Great retention, good lacing.likeatrainwreck (573) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2016
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. It’s 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. It’s good. I’d drink it again. I’d buy it again, and I would recommend it.
Big, sweet IIPA. Pine, citrus... Loads of alcohol on the finish. Sweet and sticky. PugUglyBrewer (763) - - OCT 22, 2016
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 (3055) - 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 shouldn’t be that way! A brilliant, mid orange with little as far as head retention. You know that canned pineapple cooks shouldn’t 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 10’er. 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 couldn’t 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, it’s 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 doesn’t feel 10%! Smooth, slick, moderate carbonation, scary drinkable!
There’s a skerrik of toasty sort of grainy malt upfront but it’s BOOM BAM citrus & tropical fruit hops from there within - orange & mandarin, paw paw & papaya, mango, banana even. There’s stacks of bitterness there, but it hardly registers at a brutal 100IBU that’s for sure.
A formidable IPA - citrus overload!
