The aroma is sweet citrus and hops. The taste is true to the aroma. This beer is so incredibly smooth if you can get your hands on it! Not much I can add that hasn’t already been said...

No need for another review of this beer. It's awesome and lives up to its hype. Go after it if you haven't had it. A+

blueshockey24 (199) - Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Can. Pours hazy golden. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Taste is sweet and grapefruity / juicy with a piney grapefruit hoppy finish. It was worth the effort it took to get a can here in CO.

Got this one @ Szynkarnia Wroclaw: epic imperial ipa, really grassy and citrussy. Loved it.

dinkle50 (1224) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Cloudy pour, somewhere between yellow and orange with a huge foamy head. Aroma is full of citrus with a slight bite to it. Kind of floral as well with hints of very overripe fruit. Taste is incredibly juicy. Full of citrus and passion fruit. Insanely balanced, which makes it so drinkable. No alcohol detectable. Medium bodied.

Extremely well balanced and layered taste. Amazing DIPA. Explosion of hops and citrus aromas. Def not overrated.

superspak (3992) - Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2016
16 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, papaya, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, papaya, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, papaya, mango, melon, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely amazing DIPA style. All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A insanely delicious offering.

Fantastic great nose and great taste. Super balanced yet complex. Each level from start to finish of this beer melds seamlessly together. Glad I could taste this beer!

Ron (3283) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Can. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a moderate creamy beige head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Flavor is bittersweet malt and lots of juicy tropical fruit. Notes of pineapple, grapefruit and mango. There is an underlying sweet caramel maltiness. I guess there is a good mix of hops and tropical fruit. It just seems a lot lighter than I was expecting. Still, very nice. Thanks for sharing JB.
