BrooHa (120) - New York, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pours a hazy orange. (Yes, I know weíre supposed to drink it from the can, but I just couldnít bear to do that. But I am lucky enough to have another can so Iíll try that experience as well!) Not bad looking but unremarkable, as far as appearances go. Nice, piney, grapefruit hop bomb for the nose. Drinks sharp with loads of grapefruity citrus and pine resin. Some sweet malt in the finish but overall, a nice, scrubbing effect. IMO, one of the few beers that lives up to the hype. Iím not trading my first born for a 4 pack but you can bet Iíll make the pilgrimage to try and score some more! Good job!

kathouse (1203) - Nevada, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours a cloudy light orange with a 2 finger off white foam. The foam is thick and so is the hoppy aroma. Resiny, citrus, and appealing. Medium body has a thick hop bitterness. Body supports well without sweetness. Finish is dry, clean, and very smooth. Excellent IPA.

16 ounce can. Thanks Gary! Poured a few ounces, drank the rest from the can. Pours a hazy gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and some pine. Taste is grapefruit, other tropicals, pine, florals, and some caramel malt. Great balance and a great finish. Well worth the trade I made.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Poured from 16 oz can. Cloudy amber with cream head. Citrus pine nose, very bitter. I can see where the hop head go nuts however, most imperial IPA Iíve had have some malt to balance out the bitter. Didnít really get that blend. There are others that are better with a lot less hype. Still good though.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
16 oz can at a tasting at Gregís, served in a stem glass. Pours cloudy amber with a small white head that fades to a thin remnant, leaving behind a small amount of fine lace. The nose has nice floral hops, along with caramel malts, cookie and grapefruit. The flavour is balanced between moderately bitter piney hops and moderately sweet caramel malts. Flowers are present throughout. It finishes with a long, lingering bitterness with spice and grapefruit. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice double IPA but I felt the finish to be a bit of a disappointment. 2012-09-15

rxeight (1759) - Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Cans thanks to Balto_MD. Very bitter. Lots of hops. Didnt get much malt on the back end to balance it out. This was a very good IIPA. Had it against the other top competitors. Up there not better.

Can 473cl @ Geokkjer
Pours hazy deep golden/copper with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, orange and peach. Taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long warm, citrus and tropical fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (14775) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
Can, from trade with the little grumpy old Dane. A not-so-cute golden-orange beer with some floaties and a finger-thick off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma is really hop-driven, leaving little room for the malts. Peaches, pine cones, grapefruit peel, resins and some alcohol. Itís full-bodied and nicely carbonated, with some warmth. Nice bitterness, and lots of hoppy aromas. Sufficient amounts of malty sweetness blends in. Lasting finish with the hops dominating, and so much bitterness it leaves a feeling of having drank a dry beer. A rather wonderful beer. 130222

Geokkjer (6298) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
Can. Pours golden with lots of floaties and a small white head. Aroma of floral, cheesy hops, some citrus and pine. Flavor is sweet and bitter with some floral and citrus hops and some malt and fruitiness. Medium body, average carbonation.

Art (2093) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Cans thanks to Balto_MD. Poured into a tulip even though it tells me to drink from the can. Huge pillowy white head. Pours a cloudy orange. Powerful grapefruity hops aroma. As the head dissipates it leaves a beautiful lacing along the glass. Much of the head lasts for some time. Slightly on the bitter side of balanced. This could be due to my pouring it into a glass (just read the can). Actually taking a swig from the can is slightly less bitter. Still an amazing beer that I am glad I got to try. The next three will be drank directly from the can, as it was intended!
