Stine (1464) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2012
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, it’s 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 aren’t quite large or singular enough for my taste, and the malt notes are altogether too absent. The hugeness of its hops that doesn’t 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.

Ober (2807) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2012
A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of fruits like citrus, with strong hop flavors. The taste of sweet fruits, nettle, with hop bitter. The aftertaste is sweet, dry and gentle bitter.

jsquire (3387) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Murky orange beer poured out of a dented can (which makes it even better) with a short lived creamy off white head. This beer has all the right IIPA smells or candied grapefruit rind and pineapple upsidedown cake. Pinching bitterness of grapefruit, bitter orange peel, pineapple and apricot jam. Nice cakey malts underneath. Nice warming alcohol sense to it. Thick syrupy mouthfeel. Long hop resin bitter aftertaste. This is a really nice hop head beer.

16 oz can thanks to Michael. Pours a light orange with a nice white head that dissipates quickly. Pour leaves a huge amount of suspended and settled sediment. Aroma is sweet mango and floral and citrus hops, toasty malt. Taste is lively hops, sweet but nice balance and easy to drink. Palate is smooth, slightly oily. Finish is sweet and delicious. Truly one of the best I have had.

Can. Hop hops and more hops. As soon as the can was opened I could smells hops. I really enjoy how balanced this beer is and the alcohol is well hidden. I prefer the citrus hoppy beers but his one was really good with a very bitter finish.

jeffbugz (3) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2012 does not count
Probably the Best béer (IPA) made in a can. They strongly suggest to drink it straight from thé can and after few test this is true! Lots of hop, good fresh taste and a réal surprise at the end. Wonderfyl.

Oh sweet god. This IPA is the closest I have tasted to a perfect IPA. So hoppy yet so drinkable. Def best out of the can as suggested, though I had to pour some in a glass to get the appereance ;) Good job!

Westmeister (1653) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2012
There is no doubt that hype holds true on this one. However, out of three that were opened in this one sitting, one was heavy sediment that seemed to have the most bitterness, one with almost no floaties that had the biggest tropical fruits character and the least bitter (albeit still massive bitterness). And one right in the middle. So the look was all over but centered around an orange with light to heavy floaties and a nice white head. Taste was big orange zest, grapefruit, tropical mango, tangerines, light sweet malt backing. Largely and gorgeously bitter. Smell was a lot of the same. I would say fuck quality control because no matter the color or makeup the beer was fantastic.

Can. Nice lighter orange pour with a light tan head. Aroma is massive hops. Citrus and pine and it’s like they threw every hop in the brewery into this thing but it works. Flavor is more of the same. Really nicely balanced. Not overly bitter and the hop notes just keep pouring through. Excellent beer.
