Appearance: Soft cloudy oranges under a bready white head which lingers long and full.
Nose: A bit thin. Lemon and grapefruit rind held together with pine while hop oils pool in the middle. Table crackers along the edges and underneath. Orange oils.
Palate: Dry and parching which I found to be a minor deterrent to the veracity of the flavors within. Biggest flavor punch in the middle with lemon and orange oils, hop resins. Table crackers underneath. Pine needles and Christmas trees.
Final Thoughts: For all the rave reviews and online hoopla regarding this particular IPA, I was expecting a bit more oomph. Was it good? Yes. Was it awesome? No. Nonetheless it is definitely worth a try or two for those who love their hops.

Travelled to the cannery in Waterbury VT. Complex hops aroma, citrus, pine. Bitter but not over the top. Excellent finish, the bitterness stays with you.

From the can thanks to a good friend of mine, who kept this delicious beer safe from Vermont to Chicago. Aroma was fantastic. I opened the can and was punched in the face with grassy, floral goodness, with notes of spice. Taste was so satisfying. Booze was nicely hidden by the bitter notes, but definitely wasn’t overbearing. The one thing that stuck with me was the crisp and clean palate. It reminded me of fresh spring water, but not in a bad way at all. Great beer.

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 isn’t bothering me. I typically don’t 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.

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 doesn’t 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.
