Bon, je me gardais précieusement cette bière légendaire pour mon 836e rating. J’y suis enfin! Dégustée comme le veut la tradition - à même la cannette. Ayant déjà versé cette bière dans mon verre à plusieurs occasions, ce 4/5 accordé au look du contenu est fondé et n’est pas une histoire de graphisme et d’emballage. Pshh! Des vapeurs houblonnées envahissent mon nez et tout l’air ambiant. Du fruit, tel la mangue, le pamplemousse et l’agrume en général mélangés à un melon ruisselant et sucré. Une pointe d’alcool également, mais rien de déplaisant. À chaque fois que je déguste cette bière, je me darde sur la première gorgée - la meilleure. Cette gorgée précise renferme tout ce que j’aime le mieux de cette bière en plus d’une explosion minérale et métallique qui s’estompe rapidement au fil des gorgées. Sans être sirupeux ni collant, ce liquide sucré a beaucoup de corps et je l’en remercie car il m’est ainsi impossible d’en boire des quantités déraisonnables. Les fruits sus-mentionnés m’apparaissent aussi clairement en bouche et c’est à belles dents qu’il me semble mordre dans cette salade de fruits au jus d’ananas. Beaucoup d’effervescence aidant à alléger le tout avec en bonus un alcool présent. Une excellente IIPA!

The white whale Limpin to my kitchen. Yellow honey must in the glass. superbly balanced body. Drink it from the can you say? Yes the pink grapefruit abounds but is enveloped by sweet full malts before they are allowed to overwhelm and run wild. Nice pick Chris!

Can (trade with non Rate Beer member); drank mostly from the can, poured a few sips into a glass; pours hazy gold with a white head; aroma of tropical fruits, pine, and a hint of malt; taste is bitter with tropical fruits, malt, and pine; finish is bitter; very nice (slight downgrade on the appearance since I mostly drank it from the can)

Great beer only available in Vermont color not great.... Why I’m assuming they advise to drink from the can but otherwise fantastic.

16oz can into tulip. Tried a little from the can too. Minneapolis. Cloudy pale yellow-orange. Very nice head. Aroma is earthy, a little musty. Some grapefruit and lemon notes. Taste is largely bitter. Some sweetness in the finish. But less than expected. Body is very full. Probably the best I have had for the style. Mouthfeel is almost frothy. Overall, very strong. I would put abrasive or king sue above this though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Goodgrief (1920) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Can from buddy at work. Light golden pour, frothy head. I poured it into a glass despite the instructions on the can! Citrus bomb! Fruity aromas leap from the glass. Flavor is citrus fruit, grapefruit, mango, melons. Lots of fruit. Sweet and malty, thick. But a nice balancing hop kick brings a moderate to high bitterness. Light and drinkable. The pint was gone too soon. Nice.

Canned. Full sample. old note. Can max two weeks of age. Aroma has citrus, pine, other tropical fruits. Straight from can so no idea about the looks. The taste is moderate bitter, has some toffee and biscuit sweetness, pine/resin, citrus. Good stuff.

Had this beer a few times. Very good double IPA. Great nose and taste, if it were easier to get I would trade for more often but definitely over hyped.

Smells of grass lemons pine resin with caramel on the back end. Colors a nice light gold color slightly transparent. Tasted lemony sweet at first with a sweet slightly bitter hop profile with a nice malty backbone. Flavor lingers on your tongue almost for the perfect amount of time nice carbonation. Really good beer would drink again.
