What's on the Can: "Brewed in collaboration with 'Nightmare Brewing Company' we are going to give you one hell of a NE DIPA. This triple dry hopped Demon brings that New York haze, fruity, juicy, and Demonically DANK! Keep Cold. Drink Fresh. Unfiltered and super hoppy, sediment is normal so let it settle and leave it behind. Always pour into a glass. Cheers LCB Brewmaster!"

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy peach-orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered; lots of sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy off-white head; trace lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Lots of tropical citrus and stone fruit with trace dank and and complementing oaty malts. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Complementing malt, with slight octane and some dank at the start. Pleasing tropical citrus and mango stone fruit from start to finish. Assertive, tasty citrus on the aftertaste. Drinks extremely well for 9.5%. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy with slight dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding Double IPA. Embodies the qualities I seek in a New England-Style Double IPA, lots of tropical and remains ridiculously drinkable. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.588/5
