4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I'll be fair and rate the appearance at 3/5 - I haven't actually given in to temptation to pour this beer into a glass. Aroma on first crack of the can is sweet and skunky - this evolves as the beer warms up to reveal many layers of hoppy goodness. Matter of fact so does the taste. First sip is good, but always underwhelming for me, but with each sip the flavors develop a bit more to reveal the sultry nature of hops. This is a great beer, one of my favorites. Not bitter for a dipa, but the can explains that, just layers and layers of beautiful hop with enough malt backbone to keep it drinkable.

Nice with aroma, taste of grass, rich floral notes, fruit (peach and some grape), but not as intense as I had hoped. Probably had my sights set too high..

Can, at Papsø’s. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Very fruity, very hoppy aroma with a dash of pine in the mix. Taste is sweet malty and rather bitter, long lingering finish, anesthetic. Fruit bowl, pine. Low carbonation, full body.

Drunk to celebrate my rating number 24,200. Can. A hazy golden beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma has notes of peaches, malt, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, peaches, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can 1 pt. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a cloudy golden with a rich and lacing white head. Sweet fruity nose, heavy on citrus and pine. Medium body, very soft mouthfeel, a little lowish in carbonation. A rather sweet but very fresh fruitiness, lovely citrusy hops with an almost herbal astringency. The bitterness actually doesn’t feel all that extreme. A lovely DIPA, but not sure it’s THAT much better than so many other beers of the same style. 270612

Usually a beer taste better at home, yet had to venture out to find this. Wow , what a perfect experience . Not a dirty/ cloudy beer, as I was expecting (disappointing), but clean and sessionable. Makes me want to drive 5 hrs to vermont for . P. S. soon!

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2012 Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!
A: This DIPA appears noticeably hazier than other brews of this ilk. The beer itself is light orange in color, with a 1/4" head that leaves a fair amount of lacing.
S: Wow! The aroma is simply amazing. A bouquet of fresh tropical fruits, to include pineapple, mango, grapefruit, guava. No alcohol or malt scents to be found, just as it should be.
T: Wonderfully hop forward and delicious. The taste is fantastic, but not quite as unbelievable as the aroma, which was absolutely world class. The flavor is all about hops, citrus / tropical fruits, and floral notes. Terrific beer.
M: Bitter and dry, in the best possible way. Hop and fruit flavors linger on the palate between drinks.
D: I have wanted to try this beer for a long time. It is absolutely worthy of all the praise it has received. I look forward to drinking some on draft the next time I visit the lovely state of Vermont.
Edit: Drank over a case of this over the summer. Simply phenomenal beer. I’m not sure how or where this beer could improve. One of the best beers I have had. Dangerously drinkable and mouth wateringly delicious. My highest recommendation.
