Gregus (433) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Puszka; barwa złota, opalizująca. Piana opada do obrączki. Intensywny aromat chmielowy, cytrusowy, grejpfrutowy, pomarańczowy, mandarynkowy, leśny, żywiczny, mango, owoców tropikalnych. Smak cytrusowy, grejpfrutowy, słodowy, owocowy. Goryczka wysoka, ale krotka i przyjemna. Bardzo pijalne. Alkohol świetnie ukryty.

dambor (157) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2015
Pours hazy orange with nice head. Aroma: perfectly balanced white fruit and mango with some pine. Taste: first pretty sweet (malt, mango, orange), then herbish-piney with a not too extreme but very pleasant hoppy bitterness. Super drinkable, ABV well hidden, at the same time complex, with every sip being very enjoyable (you want more and more).

matbli (115) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Can bought at Beee&Food Festival in Poznan, Poland. Pours cloudy orange with impressive pillowy white head. Aroma of hay, resin, flowers, spruce, toast and herbs. Taste is good balanced with light sweetness ending in a bitter finish. A good Imperial Ipa for sure, but I have my doubts if it’s the best in the world.

andrewje41 (1178) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2015
16 Oz can poured an split. Much thanks to Eugene for sharing this, and making this day even cooler. Pours a cloudy, fizzy yellow color with an oily head. Grassy hops aroma and a very smooth hop flavor. Very earthy hops, which a difference to what I’m used to. Tasty beer though. Solid imperial.

Emeister84 (1451) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2015
The initial swig from the can is very balanced, though definitely hop forward, and very clean. Once in a glass the aromas are very opened up. Tropical fruit, pineapple, citrusy. A slightly hazy appearance, light orange with a decently lasting white head. Dry, bitter, very clean. Medium bodied, highly drinkable.

rollingwood (89) - Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Pleasing balance of hops and malt from the minute you crack the can to the last sip (when the beer has warmed somewhat, obviously). Not only is this beer exceptional, but it comes in tallboys as well! Very thoughtful. And as to the ratings that dinged HT on the ’hype,’ forget the hype. Rate the beer!

furthur (365) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Can, cloudy yellow beer, big white head, good lace. Aroma lychee, orange, mint and spring spruce. Taste is light malt, spruce resin, faint citrus, and citrus rind. I wish the taste delivered what the aroma promises. Still, this is juicy, yet light and drinkable, especially for 120ibu. Palate light, carbonation bright.

stevoj (2728) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle share (or can share). Beautiful aroma, heady indeed. Nice robust, slick body, hoppy notes dominate without distracting. Clean finish.

7galo (2) - - MAY 16, 2015 does not count
Poured from the can. Thin white head, glorious golden, lupulin hazy color. Tropical, citrus bomb on the nose. Hop dankness. Hints of sweet tropical fruit and notes of pine across the palate. Hides it’s alcohol well. Overall a bomb double IPA

MrOrla meets Shaun HIll. Pours golden witth a white head. Aroma and taste tropical fruits, pineapple, hopforward, light malts, notes of pine, very fresh and crips. Amazing stuff
