473ml can @ home. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Nose is pithy and piney, with hint of tropical fruit. Flavour is similar, ample piney hops with equal citrusy pith and quite yeasty.

Thanks to tom10101 for offering up this can! Pours a fairly cloudy yellow with a medium foamy white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is dank and loaded with diesel (more diesel than onions this time). Intensely hoppy and very pleasing. Taste is more on the fruity side altough it does offer some of the same diesel action. Moderately bitter. Not too boozy. Some fruit gummies impressions. Body is medium, carbonation pretty high (too high if you ask me). A bit juicy but it could certainly be more if that carbonation was lower. Lingering grassy bitter finish. Overall a really fine DIPA by Twin Sails, one of their better ones I’d say!

Can (473 ml) at home. Thanks to Damon for this one! Cloudy pale orangey-golden with a medium white head, some retention, leaving some lacing. Aroma is of juicy citrus, piney notes, lactose like notes (even though I think there’s none there) and mild cereals spiciness. Taste is also of juicy citrus, oily resinous notes, mild spicy cereals notes, light minerality and low bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Resinous and dry finish with a fun citrusy kick at the end. Much better than the ratings from a month ago suggests so I guess a few weeks in can did wonders for this one. Clean juicy and piney but not overly bitter highly drinkable DIPA.

500ml can dates May 19th. Pours thick and hazy pale yellow with big foamy head. Nose citrusy and oily. Juicy. Very fruity. Taste fruity and juicy. Oily and resinous. Citrus rinds. Silky mouthfeel. Nose is a bit shy but taste and finish are awesome. Awesome mouthfeel. Quite drinkable. Very tasty. Wow.

Adding melon and honeydew to the mix of flavours. Excellent.

2017-06-03, can, 8-3-8-5-16=40
Cloudy-murky blond color. Aroma of citrus peel and mild pine. Lean but well structured; crisp malt base, moderately sweet, followed by strong orange juice and bitter orange character. Very fruity, but still with a good bitter punch.
Very good.

2017-06-03, draught at the brewery, 8-3-8-5-17=41
Murky yellow color. A bit chalky, with a good body strength, mild residual sweetness, dominated by the resiny and dank hops. Wonderful.

Draught @ Alibi. Opaque. Thin head. Rich papaya and citrus hop. Bitter, touch yeasty, malts aren’t coming through too much. Nice hop though. Very drinkable. Lupulin powder?.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a filthy cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very pithy and piney, with light tropical fruitiness and soft biscuity malt. Flavour follows accordingly, with lots of piney hops, considerable pith and citrus rind, and a soft biscuity malt base. Fairly yeasty too, which, along with the pith, makes this one even dirtier than usual for these NE IPAs. Good, but Twin Sails has done better.

dnstone (3579) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Wildly hazed golden, almost like OJ, with white head. Juicy piney and dry pine. Dry piney juicy IPA... quite excellent.

Notes: on tap at Alabi Room Vancouver, May ’17

Taster at the brewery. Pours an murky golden with a white head. Aroma and taste are tropical fruits, slightly dank. Good stuff.
