The best part of this beer is the aroma. When you open the can and take a whiff, it promises something great. Then you drink it and it sucks. In an over-saturated genre of beer, this is one of the offenders. I am confident that the ’aging’ of this beer ruins a lot of what makes hoppy beers good. Do you like beers like Hopslam or Green Flash West Coast IPA? Beers that have BRIGHT hop flavors? If so you will most likely think this is total ass. I WANTED to like the packaging. I’m into this whole ’fancy beer in cans’ thing. But then I started reading the little words printed all over the can. They are stupid. A total waste of time. Don’t even bother. It’s NOT funny, or cute, or anything other than asinine. Also, I resent the caricatured faces drawn on the can. Are those the guys who make the beer or something? Why is it important to them that their faces are on the beer? Fucking egoists. I want my money back. Bummertown.

Luminescent bright golden, enticing aroma of pine, wood, lemon. Bitter, smooth, bright hoppy flavors. This is good!

9/25/2014. 12 oz. can. Amber color with a thick white head. Big, piney aromas with tropical fruit, caramel and spices. Bitter hops all the way, dried spices, resins. Long bitter finish.

4 week old can practically dripping with tropical fruits and pine. Light in color, not in character. Really enjoyed this dank offering - probably the best I’ve had from 21st ammendment. Only monks blood is even close."

Aroma wonderfully rounded, juicy hop feel. Mild sweetness, gentle alcohol dryness. Good malt backing. Late feel of vanilla..
Appearance :
Top: medium, fizzy, off-white top. Sparse lace.
Base: golden.
Palate : medium plus bodied.
Taste: pineapple, sweet sugars on lips. Mid semi-dry. Plenty of citrus paired with drying alcohol.
Other notes very nice, easy going considering size.

Pours a light hazy yellow with a medium head, leaving a nice lacing on glass. Aroma is pine, citrus, alcohol. taste is bitter with the alcohol coming through. Decent.

stevoj (2235) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2014
You won’t be able to tell the high ABV. Nice but not overpowering aroma leads to a sharp, biting flavor that is pure DIPA. Clear golden body with nice creamy head, tons of clumpy lacing. All around winner

Fruity aroma greets the nose, then some hops, malt, and more hops. Hops lingers for a minute, then it’s time for more.
