One of the best DIPAs out there. Thanks to tectactoe for the split. Would really like to get more of this.

Can from oregonskibum, thanks a lot for this one! Hazy yellow with a small head that doesnít retain. Lots of citrus, ripe mango and pine/resin to the aroma, some candylike sweetness as well. Taste has a lot of grapefruit bitterness but not as heavy and biting as usually in DIPA, (a nice change for once), resin, nice dryness and slight alcohol heat at the end. Really well balanced for the style. Dry after taste that leaves you wanting more to freshen up.

16 oz can generously given to me as a bonus in a trade with BrewJay. The pour is a hazy murky orange golden with a one inch off white head that falls noisily and quickly. The aroma is fresh citrus pineapple mango, along with a bit of fruit stripe gum. Some resin is present in the back. The taste is the fresh and bright pineapple mango tropical citrus fruit of the nose along with some sharp bitterness, along with resin, earth and some warming alcohol. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and the bitter alcohol sweet ending. Solid double IPA, thanks Jay.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Fresh can thanks to artmcd8. Poured cloudy yellow orange with decent head. Nice grapefruit citrus aroma. Quite smooth balanced taste. More resinous then the aroma would suggest.

Can that came as a bonus in a trade, thanks Lukaduke! Chilled this one straight away, it didnít stand a chance of making it through the night. I had a couple of these on a trip to Vermont and was excited to revisit. It certainly didnít disappoint. Is it head and shoulders above other DIPAs or even the best one out there? I wouldnít say so but to each their own. Certainly a prime example of the style. Disregarding the hype, itís a delicious beer that Iíd always be happy to enjoy.

Wow...what an amazing beer! Thank you Alchemist what an awesome experience! Thank you PhillyCraft for including this as a bonus! Wow it's a great beer! Ok on to the actual review...the reason I gave this a 4.8 instead of 5 is the whole appearance thing...drinking from the can all I saw was the can. The flavor is grapefruit, orange hop goodness! Not too bitter. This beer is amazing. Sometimes I wish I lived in Vermont!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bought from the cannery in Waterbury. Was excited to try it and it didnít disappoint. In fact it is unreal how good it is. Resin, spruce, citrus, grass on the nose, but the body is light, itís dry, itís balanced, alcohol well integrated. Also the most recent one I drank smelled like weeeeed man. It was really pronounced. In any case, itís a delicious beer, I literally have nothing bad to say about it, hence the 5. Buy it when you see it.
