UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Fresh can thanks to artmcd8. Poured cloudy yellow orange with decent head. Nice grapefruit citrus aroma. Quite smooth balanced taste. More resinous then the aroma would suggest.

Can that came as a bonus in a trade, thanks Lukaduke! Chilled this one straight away, it didnít stand a chance of making it through the night. I had a couple of these on a trip to Vermont and was excited to revisit. It certainly didnít disappoint. Is it head and shoulders above other DIPAs or even the best one out there? I wouldnít say so but to each their own. Certainly a prime example of the style. Disregarding the hype, itís a delicious beer that Iíd always be happy to enjoy.

Wow...what an amazing beer! Thank you Alchemist what an awesome experience! Thank you PhillyCraft for including this as a bonus! Wow it's a great beer! Ok on to the actual review...the reason I gave this a 4.8 instead of 5 is the whole appearance thing...drinking from the can all I saw was the can. The flavor is grapefruit, orange hop goodness! Not too bitter. This beer is amazing. Sometimes I wish I lived in Vermont!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bought from the cannery in Waterbury. Was excited to try it and it didnít disappoint. In fact it is unreal how good it is. Resin, spruce, citrus, grass on the nose, but the body is light, itís dry, itís balanced, alcohol well integrated. Also the most recent one I drank smelled like weeeeed man. It was really pronounced. In any case, itís a delicious beer, I literally have nothing bad to say about it, hence the 5. Buy it when you see it.

16oz can. Poured into a sam glass (against clear instructions on can). Cloudy yellow with a white head and medium lacing. Possibly the cloudiest beer I have ever seen. HUGE hop aroma which surprisingly does not overwhelm the flavors. Yes it has alot of hop flavors, great flavors of grapefruit and pine, but somehow the 120 IBUs do not slap you in the face. There is some magic sorcery going on here. I had to go on a quest to find this stuff as I was driving through the organic state of VT but a quickie mart at a mobil gas station saved the day when I found their last 4 pack. The hype is true my friends. Go north to the green state and seek this stuff out. Possibly the best beverage a hop head could wish for.

(can - 16 oz) Hazy gold pour with a fizzy white head. Rich and sweet citrus hop aroma but not overpoweringly hoppy. Flavor is amazingly smooth and citrusy. The hops are definitely present along with the bitterness but theyíre balanced out by a strong grapefruit sweetness and a lingering pine resin finish. Definitely not as thick or heavy as I thought it would be. Highly impressed.

I have been fortunate enough to have this beer on several occasions now. For me it is almost the perfect beer. The aroma is incredible...like sticking your nose in a bag of hops. The beer is lighter bodied than you would expect form a DIPA. As the can says "So Drinkable it is Scary". I hope I am lucky enough to have a few more of these soon.

Perfect DIPA even with hype which normally helps make it disappointing. Big hop aroma, pine and citrus. Smooth fresh hops, bittering mango and pine. Clean aftertaste and smooth mouth feel. Really tasty.
