Can at home. A huge thank you to the Legend of man that is Leighton. Drank part of this from a glass and the rest from the can, as per the instructions. What a treat!

Aroma is punchy tropical fruits, mango and lychee. Later develops some light pine. A little nelson sauvin character in there as well? Aroma reminds me of Punk IPA.

Pour is translucent / cloudy vibrant orange with a persistent soft whte head. Maybe some hop haze.

Flavour is lovely squishy tropical fruit with pineapple and peach. Bitterness is very firm but clean. Lingering grapefruit bitterness. Some alcohol warmth comes through.

Palate is full, but not overly stick or cloying. lively carbonation drives those hop flavours forth.

A very fine example and showcase of hops. Double IPA is often not my favourite style, because of the huge bitterness, but this beer concentrates on the hop flavour and aroma and uses the bitterness in balance. Belief the hype. This beer is excellent.

Well not for the faint or heart easily can over power the most frequent of beer advocate. A lot going on good balance and finish from a very strong hoppy beginning. Leave it for the IPA lovers pass in my book. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from can into glass. Hazy yellow orange with a small white head. Light piney and citrus aroma. Taste is very hoppy up front, piney and citrusy. Very clean finish. Very clean mouthfeel. Good but not the best.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head leaving moderate lacing. Aroma is overwhelmingly hoppy. The flavor is so well balanced the 120 IBU rating is not a killer. Very smooth with a delicious flavor with notes of citrus, grapefruit and a nice bitterness. Awedome beer.

Aroma what you expect from a top tier ipa. Clean crisp. Grapefruit, citrus notes, hops. Pour was cloudy gold pour, white head. Taste is all there. Grapefruit start, smooth bitter finish. Complex yet enjoyable. Must try IPA. Great.

Can from a trade with a fellow Bar Towel member. Pours an absolute cloudy yellow/ copper colour, white head that dies to a ring, decent lace. Awesome citrus and pine hop aroma, with a touch of caramel. So formal. A little biscuity. Tastes is initially bitter and malt forward. A lot of grapefruit, a touch dryness. Amazing stuff.

This beer is just amazing. Have had it multiple times in a can and poured from a can into a glass. I actually prefer it in the can. The flavor stays longer. Out of the can it is one of the cloudiest beers I have ever sen. The aroma is intense and the hops pop out right away. The beer is just awesome. Major hops on the back end. This is my fav DIPA to date!

Great hops beer. Light color. Strong aromas. Solid finish. In a can! Pours with a slight white head. Not as strong as to overwhelm you but definitely every bit of 120 IBU. a hop lovers dream! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is not a balanced beer by any means. If you're a hops lover, this beer certainly celebrates it like no other. It's almost comical and whimsical if I had to think of fundamental words to describe it. When you first crack open the can, you get hit with a sledgehammer of aroma; notes of citrus and pine hit you hardest. With every sip, the bitterness provides for a lingering complexity that makes this beer unique. I found myself laughing at the experience of the entire first can. Not sure how much of it was the reputation that preceded it, but I enjoyed every sip like a fat kid knee deep in chocolate cake. I only wish it was more easily accessible in NYC. As of the time of this review, it's available exclusively at Uncle Barry's in Park Slope, Brooklyn via Union Beer distributers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yellow/orange pour, cloudy, with an average white head that persists. A much more vegetal nose than I would have thought with some citrus notes. About the same on the palate, with a more vegetal vibe than was expected.
