Amazing floral hop with some definite alcohol in there. Real deep breath reveals some cat friendliness. Great full sweet bitterness. A little muddled. Full body great bitter finish.

I waited a long time for this and am satisfied. Beer bucket list checked off. I will be seeking out more. I traded a DFH Old School barley wine for this and it was a great trade! There are bits of hops afloat in this IPA pool. Passion fruit forward, this is an excellent DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2015 Had this beer from a can i bought at the brewery. Pours a hazy golden with tons of heady. Aroma is floral and pine hops. Taste is very balanced, this is good!

Had a few in the summer and fall 2012, in can. The best double IPA I have ever tasted so far. Boy this is just a perfectly balance dIPA, Full of scents, great citrus and at 120IBU, suprisingly great hoppy finish. This beer is THE balance! Need to do a trip to the USA soooooooooooooon, and just to get packs of Heady Topper, itís that good!

Ataraxia (410) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 27, 2013
UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 Hazy deep amber pour with thin lacing. Potent aroma of citrus fruits, grapefruit, peach, mango. Some sticky pine resin, subtle malty undertones. Bitter hoppy bite that persists through the finish.

Best beer you can buy in a can. Hope they are able to increase production soon as they are getting difficult to obtain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best DIPAs around and that I've ever had. Be sure to drink from the can to get the full aroma! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 16oz can, thanks to caterwaul. Why donít these cans have dates on them? Mildly hazy golden color. Little fine particles in the glass. Thin white head. Leaves pretty good lace. Smooth light carbonation. Bigger body. Piney hop flavor, very nice. Sweet taste, light bitter for me. Nice drinkable piney sweet DIPA. 8 / 4 / 7 / 4 / 15

Revisit, 1/26/13: Got my hands on two of these, thanks to caterwaul. The first one I split with him in a glass. My second can I had all to my self, which I enjoyed straight from the can this time, at a small social gathering. Wow! Itís amazing how much more enjoyable this is from the can. Less metallic, way more pungent nose. Hits you with waves of that powerful hoppy flavor. Very smooth and dry. I couldnít believe how much more I was enjoying it, even did some side by sides with some in the glass, some straight from the can. It really makes a difference, with this beer.
