There is no doubt that hype holds true on this one. However, out of three that were opened in this one sitting, one was heavy sediment that seemed to have the most bitterness, one with almost no floaties that had the biggest tropical fruits character and the least bitter (albeit still massive bitterness). And one right in the middle. So the look was all over but centered around an orange with light to heavy floaties and a nice white head. Taste was big orange zest, grapefruit, tropical mango, tangerines, light sweet malt backing. Largely and gorgeously bitter. Smell was a lot of the same. I would say fuck quality control because no matter the color or makeup the beer was fantastic.

Can. Nice lighter orange pour with a light tan head. Aroma is massive hops. Citrus and pine and it’s like they threw every hop in the brewery into this thing but it works. Flavor is more of the same. Really nicely balanced. Not overly bitter and the hop notes just keep pouring through. Excellent beer.

markwise (4543) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Can courtesy of Reynold314. Cheers, Matt! Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a cream-colored head. Nose is caramel, sugar, booze, and a huge wafting of citrus, apricot, peach, and pine. Flavor is caramel, pine, grapefruit, orange, apricot, and resiny pine. Thick and on the lighter side of full-bodied. Nice DIPA overall.

Light in color sort of a amber straw, nice white head and good aroma, not as much aroma as I would have expected, but good citrus and flower comes through. Also drank out of the can as suggested. The taste is nice and smooth, great drinkability. Maybe not as well balanced as others, the bitterness seems to linger with this one and I think it tends to take over the thin malt base. Great beer overall, but needs a bit better balance.

Plovmand (6592) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2012
Can at Mikkeller Bar. Pours hazy golden with a creamy lasting white head. The aroma is heavy fruity with notes of peaches, passion fruit and some sweetness. The flavour is a great mix of tropical fruit with citrus, grape and a malty backbone. Nice!

Used to stop @ the Alchemist brewpub all the time for this- was there for dinner 7/27/11 the night before tropical storm Irene flooded that establishment. Was thrilled to learn from my server that a cannery was about to open- turned out to be a great thing as the brewpub was a near total loss (but replaced with the Prohibition Pig BBQ, now the only place you can get this on draft other than samples @ cannery). The can seals in a near miraculous concentrated hop flavor and aroma. I did once disobey the instructions and pour this out to reveal a cloudy golden-yellow fluid & nice sticky head that will leave a mark on the glass as it dissipates. Despite the high IBUs, there is a sweetness and crispness that counters any bitterness- many friends who are not generally fans of IPAs do enjoy this DIPA. Citrusy, piney, and resinous, it's also extremely drinkable. Despite increases in production, it still sells out quickly at $12.99/4-pk at the few VT locations where it is regularly available- a solid indication that I'm not the only one who's hooked. It's now the IPA by which I judge all others. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at DLD ’12. I’m glad I got to try this one again, since I liked it before but never rated it. I know the first one was thanks to Kan, this might be as well. Orange yellow color with yeasty floats. Nice dose of hoppy goodness. Bitter citrus juicy bready. Juicy nice and oh so tasty. I could drink a few of these. 8/4/8/3/16

SaintMatty (5518) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2012
500ml Can - Amber in colour. Grapefruit, pine, toffee, passion fruit, peach and pineapple in the enticing aroma. Fairly bitter and hoppy, yet nicely balanced with notes of lemon, grapefruit, pineapple (lilt, perhaps) and fudge.

Hey, Mr. Adam Jackson, you’re cool as fuck, dude! :-) Poured this awesome metallic-auburn color with a fine head and finer lace to represent its heady collisions. Smells of California hops, loafed rye, Carared malt, and Maine salt. Tastes predominately of spicy hops, olive juice, grapefruit peels, tangerine zest and Chrysanthemum flower pedals. Niiiice!

Can from a store in Copenhagen. Very fruity and fresh DIPA with lots of tropical fruits, pineapple, strawberries, peach and passion fruit. Very enjoyable I want to drink more all the time. Great beer!
