Hoppy aroma faded just a little during the week since canning. Still amazing strong citrusy aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the can into a tulip glass. This can is from the brewery, fresh in mid-September.... First whiff is hops and then the citrus presence, namely grapefruit, pine and some other hints. So nice on the nose but it doesnít give away anything about whatís coming in the tasting.... Poured a hazy rich gold/orange with over 1 finger of off white head. This faded to nice lacing on the glass. Light carbonation noted. Remembering that this has been sitting in the fridge since mid-September I figured there would be some difference between this and the one I had at the brewery. I wasnít too far off. The hop profile has softened slightly but the first notes are the hops, then the citrus, other fruit hints and pine. The beer is still so balanced there wasnít one flavor that stood out above the others. Certainly the malts havenít taken over and dumbed down the flavor profile, itís just a bit mellower than when fresh. Medium body for me with a clean, fresh taste and a dry, hop finish. Smooth all the way through. Lower carbonation than what I remember but I donít mind a bit. Overall this beer lives up to its name. As I compare it to other DIPA, this one is still at the top of my list, even one thatís a little older and less-fresh than right out of the brewery. Awesome job Alchemist and hopefully Iíll come by some more of this down the road. Cheers!!!

Hazy golden. Massive nose, hops. Earth, pine, citrus, wood. Bitter finish, good but not the best out there.

thanks to Joes. Pours a yellow golden beer with a good white head. Smells orange, citrus and fresh. Delicious. Tastes insane good. Orange and citrus with a perfect dry finish. Average carbo, medium body and a dry texture.

As good as any IPA you will find. Nice grapefruit piney taste will prevent you from realizing just how strong it is. Not a pretty beer but who cares when it tastes this good.

Great not amazing. If this was available in my neighborhood, Iíd drink it all the time. Nice and rich, hoppy and sticky. Definitely give it a try.

Can from pump, thanks! Drank this one from the can on a round of disc golf. Aroma is big and sweet with citrusy and woodsy hops and a nice caramel backer. Taste was fantastic with citrus, grapefruit, pine, caramel and a strong bitter finish.

A R- Dry hopped to perfection what you smell is what you taste AP- This beer is a traditional golden color that many IPAís have but is not 100% filtered TA- You get hit with Hops first, taste the malts and a bit yeast and then finishes with hops again PA- Nice complex flavor that will bath your tongue in liquid goodness OV- Itís hard to find a better beer than this

No comparison, this is serious business. The best IPA youíll find, bar none. Like someone created the prefect crossbreed between a luscious mango and a pine tree, and captured the essence in this silver can. Itís rich, sweet and ever so hard to get, but itís absolutely perfect. Canít rate appearance because youíre supposed to drink it straight from the can, and itís pretty dark in there. Which is how the hops like it, and you can tell they absolutely love it. And you will too.
