Best beer you can buy in a can. Hope they are able to increase production soon as they are getting difficult to obtain.

East coast? Kinda. West coast? Some influence, for sure. Delicious? Yes. Need MOAR!

One of the best DIPAs around and that I've ever had.
Be sure to drink from the can to get the full aroma!

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 16oz can, thanks to caterwaul. Why donít these cans have dates on them? Mildly hazy golden color. Little fine particles in the glass. Thin white head. Leaves pretty good lace. Smooth light carbonation. Bigger body. Piney hop flavor, very nice. Sweet taste, light bitter for me. Nice drinkable piney sweet DIPA. 8 / 4 / 7 / 4 / 15
Revisit, 1/26/13: Got my hands on two of these, thanks to caterwaul. The first one I split with him in a glass. My second can I had all to my self, which I enjoyed straight from the can this time, at a small social gathering. Wow! Itís amazing how much more enjoyable this is from the can. Less metallic, way more pungent nose. Hits you with waves of that powerful hoppy flavor. Very smooth and dry. I couldnít believe how much more I was enjoying it, even did some side by sides with some in the glass, some straight from the can. It really makes a difference, with this beer.

Can for rating #4600: † Dirty orangish straw, light to moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing. † Bright and sweet pithy nose, a bit citrusy, somewhat candied. † Fresh and bright on the tongue, hoppy, citrusy, some caramel like sweetness, candied orange bits. † Not overly biting, hoppy, but well within reason. † Good amount of sweetness to balance it out. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full. † Clean hoppy finish. † Absolutely straight forward and a great representation for the style. † Not overly hoppy, not terribly sticky. † Very well balanced. † Thanks to Nat of Brouwerís Cafť for the can!

Crazy scents. Blended fruit, citrus, and floral. Thick head and hazy golden color. Starts a little sweet on the tongue with a nice bitter finish. Not too bitter for an 8% ipa. One of my favorite ipsís for sure.

1 pint can (trade with Leighton). A hazy golden/orange coloured pour with a medium white fluffy head on top. Hoppy, citrus, grapefruit aroma. Tastes of grapefruit, hoppy, citrus fruit, pine, slight marmalade taste, slightly malty with some bitterness. Pretty good stuff, almost in the Kernel mould.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can generously donated by HopHead Fred. A light, hazy orange color. Awesome hopped-up citrus nose, with some fresh-cut hay and a bit of sweetness, that is detectable from more than a foot away. Piney hop resin dominates the taste, but despite the high IBUs, the bitterness is just the right amount without overpowering the secondary notes of grapefruit and honey. Very dry with an abrupt finish; I wish it had more of an aftertaste. Iím not sure itís the absolute best DIPA Iíve had, but it does live up to its hype.†
