UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 Can. Pours cloudy pale orange like fresh apple cider with a small white head that disappears quickly leaving little lacing. Nose of grapefruit, peach and citrus. Medium body, average carbonation, hop forward, medium to heavy bitterness, flavor of peach, citrus and caramel, oily texture and a strong grapefruit bitter finish. A bit over rated, though good. Can. Pours cloudy pale orange with a lasting white head that leaves excellent lacing. Rich aromas of tropical fruit, grapefruit, sweet citrus, ripe peaches and bread. Lightly sweet and medium bitter taste. Flavors of ripe peaches, well balanced medium to full body, hides alcohol very well, oily texture, average carbonation leading to a lightly bitter finish. Much fuller than the first time I drank this.

Bière dorée, trouble et coiffée d’une fine écume marquant légèrement le verre. Des arômes percutants de céréales rôties et de pamplemousse. Elle est très amère, passablement sucrée et légèrement acide. Elle est de corps généreux, bien onctueuse, très effervescente et se termine sur une longue amertume et de forts arômes.

From Can. Pours a slightly hazy golden/orange hue with a very small white head. Aroma has some tropical fruity hoppy notes like peach, grapefruit, slight pineapple, slight unripe lemons. Some good strong hop profile to this beer. Decent malty/caramelly backbone here as well, and balances out perfectly. Very crisp finish. Medium bodied, with a lively carbonation. One of the best DIPAs I've ever had! Surly Abrasive, Pliny the Elder, Three Floyds Dreadnaught, I'm so confused... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2013
Can@Home. Very well hopped aroma with loads of citrus. Hazy, yellow, off-white head, good lace. Nice hoppy bitter DIPA but very unclean and almost over the edge with the grassy hops.

Definitely a mouthful. Tons of citrus hop flavor but well balanced by lots of malt sweetness. Cloudy appearance. Very good beer overall.

What, how have I not rated this after drinking it many, many times. Pure good hoppiness in a can. Citrus/grapefruit, pine and just good hops!

Aromas of citrus hops & flowers. Bitter tending towards too much but remains balanced. A superb beer but probably there’s even better.

Nose of catnip, slight skunkiness; pale orange cloudy, lasting lacey head; slight sweet hoppy flavor throughout blends well with expected lasting bitter finish; medium carbonation; all around great beer!

Pour a beautiful hazy/murky light orange, with a very small white head. Aroma has plenty of tropical fruity hoppy notes like peach, grapefruit, slight pineapple, slight unripe lemons. Some hopjuice going on in this bad boy. A Big malty/caramelly backbone here as well, and balances this one out beautifully. This thing sure is crisp!! The taste is pretty darn bitter, with some slight sweet notes, but really crispy bitter. Hot dang this tastes good. Medium bodied, with a pretty lively carbonation. A huge thanks to Dr. Doodle for sending me this unexpected treat!! Oh boy this is an easy drinker…

Rating #600! Can from Freddy at Bev4Less. Thanks Freddy! Open the can and don’t pour into a glass, just like the can tells me not to. Aromas are hop rich, surprisingly dank and forward (I thought it would smell less like a west coast offering), with some biscuit malt already apparent. Taste is very, very good. Clean, crisp, ALL of 120 IBUs assault my tongue and roof of my mouth. If you don’t love DIPA/IIPA style, with all the crazy bitterness it can bring, this won’t do it for you in the same way Pliny, or even a beer like Maine Lunch, will. This is not the crazy malty overhopped rendering of the style, all too common, but a balanced, bitter, bready, sweet craftbrew with balance and intensity in alternate, and proportionate, quantities. Really pleasing. Glad I got to try it. I ended up pouring it into a glass, just because I had to see what it looked like. Definitely murky in appearance, which is apparently how it is supposed to look when fresh. Overall, good yum.
