Poured from a can. Hazy gold with a huge white head. Citrus aroma. Citrus taste with a little sweetness. Leaves a funny bitterness. Good, but not as good as Pliny. Best east coast beer I've had, but that's not saying much.

Pour is hazy orange with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is of orange peel, citrus juice, caramel, and grapefruit. Flavor is bitter at first but has a sweet body and finish - pears, grapefruit, mango, orange peel, toasted dough, caramel. Alcohol is well hidden.

Can from Jay. Pours a hazy orange/gold/yellow with nice off white foam. Smells earthy and yeasty, a little tropical with a hint of lemon and carbon dioxide. Tastes a little nutty and fairly malty, has a pretty diverse hop start, but it fades to just plain bitter with a touch of alcohol at the end. Really didn’t live up to the hype, though it is a solid IPA.

Finally. Orange with about a finger of tight white head. Great hop aroma, orange, pineapple, apricot, mango, grapefruit, pine, herbal, resinous. The taste really follows the nose with a light malt backbone. It starts off very sweet and fruity and the bitterness slowly catches up. I got just a slight hint of alcohol as it warmed. Overall, this is a fantastic DIPA. I don’t know if it completely lived up to the hype just because the hype is so crazy, but it is about as near perfect as any D/IPA I’ve had.

Pours a nice golden color with an amazing aroma of hops and floral notes. Tastes the same but mixed with Jesus’ tears.....yeah, its that good. I challenge someone to find a better beer.

No retention and light lacing. Smells of pine, mango and oranges. Tastes of grapefruit, mango and pine. Oily hop resin finish. Nice bitterness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can, half in half out. Cloudy murky gold, huge white head. Wonderful aroma of light citrus, white grape, grapefruit, grass and pine. Taste gives a massive hot of orange, mango and grapefruit; some lighter floral and grassy notes. Wonderfully clean biscuit malt. So crisp. So drinkable. Solid bitterness, lonely citrus and grapefruit linger. Light/medium in body. So good. Worth the acclaim.
