Pours a cloudy, golden color, fantastic citrus aroma. Pleasant bitterness but overall smooth and drinkable. I could put back a bunch of these. Well-balanced flavor - a little piney sweetness - with a nice bitter kick at the end. Great beer.

big thanks to gunnarolis for this. 2 week old can. Beautiful yellow color with a nice firm head. Big lacing. Resiny aroma, some fruits, faint citrus and grapefruits. Rich on the tongue, medium bodied. Fantastic drinkabiliy. Extremely fun to try but hype is maybe doing to much for this beer. Incredibly good session beer.

This was a great tasting beer. I feel it has a very piney taste/smell. It is to bad it is not shipped farther.

la canette fait un peu peur mais il ne faut pas s’y fier, superbe fruité, les 120IBU ne se sentent pas, longueur énorme, pas trop sèche ni résineuse. Une des meilleurs IPA.

Can. Cloudy golden body with a frothy, off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of orange, citrus, grapefruit, pine, toasted grain. Hint of caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Strong bitter finish washes away the orange juice/grapefruit tastes, but not immediately. Some alcohol pepperiness and some light resin and pine. Very nice.

Hoppy aroma faded just a little during the week since canning. Still amazing strong citrusy aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the can into a tulip glass. This can is from the brewery, fresh in mid-September.... First whiff is hops and then the citrus presence, namely grapefruit, pine and some other hints. So nice on the nose but it doesn’t give away anything about what’s coming in the tasting.... Poured a hazy rich gold/orange with over 1 finger of off white head. This faded to nice lacing on the glass. Light carbonation noted. Remembering that this has been sitting in the fridge since mid-September I figured there would be some difference between this and the one I had at the brewery. I wasn’t too far off. The hop profile has softened slightly but the first notes are the hops, then the citrus, other fruit hints and pine. The beer is still so balanced there wasn’t one flavor that stood out above the others. Certainly the malts haven’t taken over and dumbed down the flavor profile, it’s just a bit mellower than when fresh. Medium body for me with a clean, fresh taste and a dry, hop finish. Smooth all the way through. Lower carbonation than what I remember but I don’t mind a bit. Overall this beer lives up to its name. As I compare it to other DIPA, this one is still at the top of my list, even one that’s a little older and less-fresh than right out of the brewery. Awesome job Alchemist and hopefully I’ll come by some more of this down the road. Cheers!!!

Hazy golden. Massive nose, hops. Earth, pine, citrus, wood. Bitter finish, good but not the best out there.

thanks to Joes. Pours a yellow golden beer with a good white head. Smells orange, citrus and fresh. Delicious. Tastes insane good. Orange and citrus with a perfect dry finish. Average carbo, medium body and a dry texture.
