No real appearance, since I took the suggestion and drank directly from the can. However, I popped the top, and it immediately smelled like I was in the middle of Shenandoah Valley. One of my favorite places to go hiking/camping with my dad. Heady is clean, slightly piney, sweetly floral, and rather bright in aroma. The taste is really light for the 8% ABV. A great hop presence on the tongue, and sweet/bitter combination from the malt/hops. Surprisingly, the piney-ness of the hops isnít bothering me. I typically donít like that in my IPAs, and tend to stick towards brighter/more tropical offerings. Short duration on the tongue, which is making me drink this beer faster than I normally would have. My first HT thanks to a trade.

Can. Thanks d! Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Big grassy nose, balanced and sweet. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Darkly toasted caramel with grassy herbal hop notes. Lots of dimensionality to the hops, but no harshness.

Canned 568ml. -Courtesy of luttonm, shared with him and Marko. Hazy orange coloured, medium sized off-white head, intensive fruity hoppy nose. Moderate malty, strong earthy hoppy, quite fruity and light herbal. Bitter hoppy finish. Lots of hops overall.

16 oz can 2 weeks old. big hop nose, Very floral and a slight citrus tinge. Small sweetness in the smell. Pours golden, hardly any haze, medium white frothy head. its a sweet malty taste at first, the the piney, citrus and bitter hop flavor, but not over barring. very smooth and well balanced. Not boozy or under hopped. Overall a very solid DIPA. One of my favorites. But doesnít beat out pliny.

I can see why they only make one thing. As advertised this is not a palate killer. It's nicely balanced and fantastic. Drink it. Drink it now! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can shared by a friend. Chunky gold pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of piney hops, spicy hops and some maltiness. Malty flavor at first, then a burst of pine before a grassy hop finish. Solid, but not quite up to the hype.

So drinkable itís scary. I had to stop myself from drinking the whole can in about a minute. Smooth like nobodyís business. As the can says, itís not the most bitter, just a perfect beer. Worth of the hype.

Mep3222 (834) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2013
UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Smells of floral, citrus like hops. Almost get a hop oil type smell. Great aroma! Taste grapefruit like hoppiness, not the piney bitter finish, more citrus hoppy. Well balanced. I would say this is my favorite IPA for sure! Maybe slightly malty, but only slightly if at all. EDIT: have some still in my fridge after 2 months. Citrus and grapefruit flavors are noticeably less. This is one you really need to have fresh. Still good, but not as good---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can
Appearance: UNK (from can)
Aroma: Intense fresh citrus, grapefruit
Taste: Grapefruit, pine needles, bitter, but not in an off-putting way
Palate: Pine, resin finish. Coating mouthfeel. Feels like itís going to finish extremely bitter, but ends up being nicely balanced and slightly sweet.
Overall: Great drinkability for a DIPA. Great, extremely intense flavors.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 The beer that turned the tides. Was not much of an IPA fan until this little master piece. Taste was amazing very much citrus and hoppy but not overwhelming. This beer had the right amount of everything that made me want more. This beer is by far a game changer for those just getting into IPAís or not a fan of them altogether. Cheers!
