3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Whole Foods Market Bowery, New York, NY. A golden/orange coloured pour with a small white on top. Hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, grapefruit, bitter/sweet, really quite bitter for me. Still a quality brew which I would drink again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can: Pours a medium yellow light orange color with a nice head and decent CO2 release. Aroma was sharp and citrusy but I had a cold and could not fairly evaluate. Taste was smooth and crisp with a great citrus hop flavor. Palate is creamy and full with good carbonation. Great IIPA, would get it again for sure.

Can. Aroma of oak, butter, honey, grassy hop, menthol. Sweet honey flavor with menthol, slightly prickly hops. Smooth and full, nicely founded. Interesting and soft.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2012 Golden amberish color with a foamy white head. Aroma is hoppy. Very nice, balanced (yet hoppy) flavor. Lightly bitter but crisp finish. Amazing for a canned beer. Somewhat floral, somewhat spicy, but certainly an IPA.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beaucoup d’agrumes s’échappe de cette cannette en la versant. Un beau gros collet crémeux se forme rapidement, très belle apparence. Agrumes, ananas et même pommes se démarquent en bouche. La vanille du chêne enrobe vraiment bien le large éventail de saveurs. Le fini est très amer et sec. Une raison de plus d’apprécier les cannettes.

12 ounce can poured into a pint glass. Pours a golden amber color with a sticky white head leaving spattered lacing. Aroma is strongly of grapefruit with a touch of honey maltiness and an even fainter note of fresh bread. Tart grapefruit dominates the flavor with oaky vanilla and a subtle alcohol sharpness. Dry finish with a little astringency and a medium bitterness. Very hop-forward with plenty of fresh flavor for an aged beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium amber, light head and lacing which dissipates quickly.....overwhelmingly sweet hop taste, extremly flowery and citrus overtones and a scant woody taste.....slight taste of the high alcohol simply because the hops overwhelm. A quite heavy mouthfeel and very sweet finish, it may benefit from lowering the fg and drying it out a tad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very juicy hop aroma, grapefruit, citrus rind, oak, and a toffee backbone. Drinks quite hoppy bitter. Grapefruit, juicy hop flavors and big bitterness and complex. But all with a smooth toasty toffee backbone that balances but still lets the hops shine through. A good DIPA, if a little too "textbook"

Beer of the night.
A bold hoppy piney, honey aroma. A nice floral, grapefruit taste. With a caramel malt and pine finish. A decent blend. I liked it.
