They definitely say drink out of the can for a reason. Great , difficult to find, beer. Refreshing, bold, soft... it's great

Can, courtesy of Casp. Finally getting the chance to try this! Nose is clogged, but I hear that is not important for this beer anyway. Thick, heavy, fruity, intense. Very, very tasty. Some pines, some tropical stuff. Long fruity mango finish, very nice. Good stuff.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4588) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2016
Can from the brewery, less than a week old. A completely opaque straw gold with a juicy sweet fruity hop bouquet of orange blossoms, prickly pear and mild pine. Med-full bodied with a relatively soft mouthfeel and a super dry finish. The taste lives up to the hype with tons of juicy hops playing all over the spectrum from fruity to peppery to piney this is good stuff but wasn’t mind-blowing or anything.

Unas de las cervezas mas completas que conozco, bomba de lupulo sin ser necesariamente una bomba de amargor, gran balance.

Can via facebook trade. Thanks Javier. Poured from can like instructed. On first sip was a bit underwhelmed however on second the flavor becomes a little more apparent. Peach and melon and a bit of light resin on the backend. A little onion to round things out. Nowadays there are plenty local double IPAs that would stand up to this. It's nice but maybe a bit over hyped. Between this and pliney the elder I would take pliney. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can @ Idletyme Brewing. Pours hazy pale yellow golden with thin white head. Aroma is juicy lemony fresh hops, earthy light caramel malt. Taste is clean light caramel malt; big earthy hops - lemon, grapefruit, and grassy notes stand out. This is excellent, but honestly overrated.

Overall: Floral, citric notes, pine, resin. Oily and smooth. A modest fine bitterness.
Note: Can 355 ml at home. Reviewed 2016-08-02.

Lots of citrus and floral hips. Very smooth for a double IPA. Maybe the hype set my expectations too high.

Apparence : Paille, reflets jaunes foncés, trouble, beau col blanc, bonne rétention, carbonatation moyenne.
Nez : Agrumes, floral, résineux. Intensité élevée.
Goût : Arômes résineux, floraux, citriques, légères épices, léger malt sucré. Finale à l’amertume contrôlée, surtout résineuse, un peu sucrée. Intensité élevée.
Sensation : Effervescence moyenne à élevée, corps moyen, quelque peu huileuse, légère chaleur d’alcool, finale de longue durée.
O : Bien bonne IIPA très axée sur le travail des houblons; le malt et l’alcool jouant définitivement les troisièmes violons. Se boit aisément, l’amertume est bien dosée par rapport aux saveurs.
Tout cela démontre bien que je suis beaucoup plus un fan de bières présentant à tout le moins des caractéristiques maltées plus dominantes. Elle est effectivement très bien réalisée, mais j’aurais aimé un apport du malt (et même de l’alcool) plus important. Une très bonne bière? Certes. Une des meilleures au monde? Pas selon les préférences de mon palais.

Finally got try the infamous heady.. Super bright aroma, great full mouthfeel. Got overripe peaches, orange juice, a little funk of pickles. Nice lacing, cloudy pour. Amazing how the taste changes as it warms. Great beer! If I lived in VT, this would be my go to. Honestly after having tried it, don’t know what all the hype is about..
