4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Location: Can shared by Pinsky at Daveís Bachelor Party, 9/27/14, Rating #4000!
Aroma: It has a big hoppy aroma of grapefruit/tropical hops, pine, and a bit of caramel
Appearance: I drank this one straight from the can as the can instructs you to do
Flavor: The taste has lots of pine and tropical flavors, a little sweet, with a big hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a pretty smooth mouthfeel, and a clean, dry finish
I was quite excited that I finally got to try/rate this. Thanks Pinksy! Iím very happy to enter this one as my 4k tick! Iíd like to thank all the inablers who made this possible by sharing beer with me, buying me beer, or just not judging me for how much beer I drink (okay, that last one is really just for my wife). As for the beer, sometimes hype can go to far and the beer has no chance to live up to it. This is not one of those times. This is a world class beer! Iíd love to get my hands on more of these.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at tasting. Big garlic hop flavor. Reminds me of "Wings of Armegeddon". Bright garlic, yeasty golden malt body. Its good, its tasty, its solid...but this is not life changing stuff...hardly line-worthy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very aromatic indeed. Very sweet, soft at first, with many fruits, brown sugar and a hint of cinnamon, but a massive hop-whallop (120 IBUs) takes over shortly. Smooth and creamy throughout, low carbonation. Not at the top for the style, but quite tasty and dangerously drinkable.

Can, sample. Didnít take proper tasting notes. Overwhelming ipa, but very drinkable, mouthfeel is seriously pleasant. The sample was way too small though...

Pint can to snifter. Golden cloudy yellow. Fluffy head. Ridiculous piney hop aroma. Tastes surprisingly balanced and drinkable but with a never ending bitter finish thatís got me making faces. Iím not a hop head.

Can Jordan brought to Daveís bachelor party, September 2014. One of the beers Iíve always wanted to try and didnít disappoint. What is most amazing is the palate, which is just the right amount of body. Enough bitterness but not overpowering for me, just really really good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
@Borefts 2014, Hotel room tasting, jammer dat we dit moesten delen ;). erg hoppig bier en behoorlijk bitter, maar dat was te verwachten. amber met witte kraag. enorm fruitig en hoppig aroma van grapefruit, citrus etc. smaken zijn heerlijk hoppig, zoetig, citrus fruiten komen er ook goed in terug net als een massa bitterheid, medium body, lage co2, maar dat kan omdat het blikje allicht wat langer open was.

I prefer this beer two weeks after purchase when everything has melted together so nicely. It then reveals to be more peach and pine on the aroma. When young it is completely overwhelming but without being harsh. It is an incredibly easy to drink beer even with high abv and heavily hopped. I simply love it.

"this is a seriously drinkable iipa. reminded me of fresh gubna in a way...more pine and spice here perhaps. you can tell the abv is high, but itís oh so easy drinking. bright vibrant sticky hops and a nice malt backbone. VERY well done.
