12 oz can from blipp. Label says Lupulin Lust Double IPA with an ABV of 9%. Aroma is tropical fruit, orange creamsicle. Pours hazy golden with a thick off-white soapy head with great retention and lace. Taste is highly bitter with lots of citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Great DIPA.

Can at Titans. Great hoppy fruit aroma, light gold body, smooth and tasty. Crisp clean bitter and very juicy tropical fruit hoppiness with some dankness in the finish. Great.

mcberko (16622) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2017
On tap at Rip Current, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out dank hops, sweet resinous hop oils and biscuity malt backing. Flavour is dank and herbal in the hop department, with a weird vegetal and medicinal quality to it. Something is not working properly here for me. Decent but off the mark.

Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Beer Nerd tulip From: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $2.34 (with 10 pct. ABV off) Purchased: Jan. 6, 2017 Consumed: Jan. 12, 2017 Reviewed as: American Double / Imperial IPA Misc.: Can reads 9.0 pct. ABV (not 8.2 pct. like it says on Beer Advocate); No born on date on the can First time I saw this in cans and I picked it up accordingly. Had it way back (before I was counting tasters on Untappd at Hamiltons) and then again at their North Part tap room (giving it a 4 on June 21, 2015). Excited to finally review it. Poured a straw-gold yellow mostly hazy color with three fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass, looking like a snow globe. World-class foamy, spiderweb lacing. World-class retention. (Sight - 4.50) Smelled a huge pleasant whiff of hops up front with a tropical citrus punch. Specifically got grapefruit, tangerine, mango, floral and smooth pine. Reminded me of Duet, getting Amarillo and Simcoe, but I swear theres Mosaic in there and probably Citra as well. Just a great smelling beer. (Smell - 4.50) Taste was not quite as awesome, but still very good. Thought I tasted pulp in the first sip, but not sure. More tropical than citrus, getting bitter tangerine rind, grapefruit, mango, some passion fruit and pine as well. First sip was not boozy, but the next few hit hard. Amarillo, spicy Simcoe, Citra and still Mosaic. (Taste - 4.25) Medium body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Long, boozy, dry finish. (Feel - 4.00) Wow. Much better than I remember. For a DIPA, this is excellent. (Overall - 4.25) 4.30 96 A

Draft at NP Tasting Room. Aroma is grapefruit/citrus with hops and an initial taste of a pleasant citrus hoppiness. Palate is left crisp with a hint of bitterness. Above average San Diego IPA, which is saying a lot! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
