A canned version graciously shared by Linzy. Great floral bouquet. An aroma that you want to keep inhaling. The flavor is light and fresh and a continuation of the smell. Lovely. It does not taste like a double at all. Too effervescent and drinkable for that moniker.

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.

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.

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.

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

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Poured from a can. Huge overpowering dry hop, just the way I like it. Excellent ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 19, 2012
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours an unclear and golden beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with peach, tropical fruit and citrus. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

16-11-12 From the can (sauf petite quantité pour voir la couleur et le développement de la biere en verre): Jaune-dorée. légèrement trouble, vive effervescence bien répartie, beau filet de mousse blanche recouvrant le produit. Puissant arômes de houblon en premiers lieux suivant de fortes notes de sapins/pins/forêts et en finale des arômes un peu désagréable de passé date, mais qui n’affecte pas le goût (bonne can). Centrée sur le houblon herbacée. Bonne amertume tranchante au départ ,mais qui se laisse désirée par la suite. Corps moyen, texture terreuse, légèrement ronde, asser forte carbonisation, finale légèrement astringente et très herbacée.

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

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!
