355ml can - shared by Janne - thanks!
Poured it - ug, flecky bits everywhere, yuck. But I’m not drinking a beer from a can even if ordered, and even if I did, I’d be forced to mark down its aroma, taste, and palate - cans are not neutral. Far better to mark down just the look. This is no worse than (in fact better than) Abbey de Rocs, say. Does have a full fruity IPA aroma, lots of sticky juicy aromatics. Sweet too, obviously - full of biscuity flapjack caramels. Good hops in the body too, that’s the first thing you notice. Full in the mouth. Very tasty, I like it. Alas it’s also sticky and stodgy. Finish is bitter and drying. Not as drinkable as some other US IPAs I’ve had, but as drinkable but tastier than some others. All in all pretty OK, but not wowing me at all.

Thanks Joey! Poured into a glass out of a can. WOW is all i can say about the smell.... CITRUS. and hops. Where was this can when i was in college? Can only imagine beer pong with this one. Taste of citrus is extremely well balanced against the hops. very clean on the palate, refreshing would highly suggest drinking this fresh

From a pint can at a beer tasting. Pours cloudy dark yellow with a white head. Strong fruity citrus aroma. Orange zest bitter finish. Wow!

RoyalFlushing (324) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Can courtesy of Beer Necessities. Poured (despite the can instructions) wild honey with a medium white head, active carbonation, and excellent lacing. Amazing citrus aroma surges from the can followed by hints of caramel malt, melon, and piney hops. Taste is very well balanced with a wave of citrus and semi-sweet malt to start, then a wave of palatable hoppy bitterness, and finishing with more citrus. Surprisingly smooth finish with blend of citrus and hoppy flavors lingering. Most drinkable top notch DIPA that I have had and just wish I had access to more.

oakbluff (419) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 2, 2012
16 ounce can via Glouglouburp- thanks for the awesome extra! Pours hazy peach orange with a thick one finger head. Soapy sticky lacing. Aroma- very resinous, piney, melon and ripe pineapple. Taste- sweet fruits, white grapefruit and cookie dough, then quickly a wave of bitterness dries the mouth. The hops literally feel caked in my mouth. Carbonation is spot on. Great brew and obviously a fresh can that makes it an even better experience.

Trade from Pittsburg. Poured into a glass, cloudy amber color. Hop explosion all around. Taste was similar, dry bitter grapefruit that lingers. Awesome, similar to Pliny, or goose island IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Awesome nose of resin and citrus. Opened only a few hours after shipment from picking up on a trade, pretty cloudy. Easily a top 3 IPA for me. Very easy to drink, unfortunately only 3 left.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - OCT 25, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 Can from trade as an extra. I can’t believe it’s regularly bitter like this. I think I got an older one. There’s no way that Pliny’s competition is this. Re-rate... Yeah, this stuff is awesome...fresh! Lots of dank, resinous hops; loads of grapefruit. Excellent beer!

minorthreat (21) - Parker, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Poured from can despite the warning. Hazy and chunky pour. Nose is the best I’ve had from an IIPA, citrus and pine with tropical fruits. Taste is excellent, deep bittering with sweet malt backbone holding it all together. Grapefruit, pine and sweet orange peel. Lively and bubbly mouthfeel. This is the best representation I have had of the style.

Hazy orange, with a nice white head. Aroma is: orange, pine, sweet grapefruit, nice malty sweetness. Taste is: bitter grapefruit, orange, pine, tangerine, sweet malts. Tastes like fressh squeezed hop pellets. Very nice DIPA! (6 days old)
