3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can@Craft Beer Co, London. Amber colour, medium off-white head. Aroma is grassy, fruity, flora, earthy, honeyish and nectary with some slight maltyness. Flavour is being quite similar in a nice balance. Lots of hops, but still not over the top hopped DIPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz can courtesy of brewolf. thanks. Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a small white head that recedes to film. The aroma is dominated by tropical fruits with oranges, mangoes and a bit of musk melon. The flavor, like the nose, features an abundance of tropical fruits set in a neutral malt base that is slightly sweet. The palate is is silky smooth, perhaps just a touch oily, and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long with a lingering bitterness. Overall: Loved it--this is a great DIPA.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2012 Can, poured into a tulip (oops forgot to read the directions). Light orange and hazy. A little Citrus, a tad honey like sweetness, a fair amt of hops finishes with resin and some bitterness. Pretty good, but thereís a lot of good IIPAs out there. Not sure it lives up to the hype, but then again what does.
re-rate, had it out of the can per instructions, and a little bit in a tulip for side-by-side. Surprisingly it did seem better.

Case of cans shipped from johnnyd @ phish.net. Pours hazy orange with small white head and a fair amount of sediment. Aroma is sweet citrus fruit and bubblegum. Nice complex bitter and sweet hop flavor and pink grapefruit. Palate is nice and smooth with light carbonation. Super quality beer.

Straight from the can the way they tell you to drink it, although I had to put a bit in a glass to get a good look at it. I donít think that I can say anything that hasnít already been said. Damn good, real good, and very easy drinking.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour from can. Bright golden yellow color w/ some chunks of hops still floating around. Huge aromas of fruity & bitter hops, including mango, peach & some grass. More flavors of mango, citrus & fresh cut grass. Just enough oily, resiny mouthfeel to remind me Iím drinking a big IPA. Iíve been wanting to try this beer for awhile- was starting to think I never would. Thanks Josh! @ Dakís party.

Can. Dark unfiltered amber with white head and plenty of yeast bits. Interesting aroma is a melange of yeast, hops and mango. Sharp taste would cut across any number of food groups. Very very hoppy yet has a light body. Malt serves as an efficient hop delivery system. Liquid sunshine. Nice maltiness does rise as the beer warms and the tongue becomes accustomed to the hops. Pleasant mango citrus hops. Suppodedly there is a strong level of alcohol somewhere in the can.

Heavy and soft hop flavors balance beautifully in this one, with basil, mint and weed aromas suggesting a light touch, but with heavy bitterness and citrus rinds pushing its nearly over the top taste. Light, pure accents of mango are fleetingly present. Still, itís smooth and soft, despite only the mildest balancing sweetness and weight of alcohol balancing its hoppy thickness. It finishes perfectly dry and crisp, with only the least noticeable stickiness. The flavors arenít quite large or singular enough for my taste, and the malt notes are altogether too absent. The hugeness of its hops that doesnít rely on any resiny character is pretty cool though.

Best hop overload on the planet. Amazing aroma and extreme complexity. The evolution of taste in this beer is almost unequaled.
