4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can generously donated by HopHead Fred. A light, hazy orange color. Awesome hopped-up citrus nose, with some fresh-cut hay and a bit of sweetness, that is detectable from more than a foot away. Piney hop resin dominates the taste, but despite the high IBUs, the bitterness is just the right amount without overpowering the secondary notes of grapefruit and honey. Very dry with an abrupt finish; I wish it had more of an aftertaste. Iím not sure itís the absolute best DIPA Iíve had, but it does live up to its hype.†

Quarter can pour, lightly hazed golden with full finger straw head. Nose is nice Simcoe hop, resin and straw, sticky and dank. Flavor is healthy hop, woody, like oak, rich and sticky. Killer amazing. Great body with nice lacing. Really a standout beer

A lil conflicted about keeping this in the can, it says I must to retain the hop aromaís, still I will pour a little for scent and complexion. Can smells of piny, bitter hops like a stronger dales. Pours a light unfiltered yellow with a foamy white head, kind of looks like grapefruit juice. After pouring I can smell lemon, citrus and honey but smell isnít too complex. Is more bitter and less aromatic in the can but Iím sure this can be enjoyed either way. Quite drinkable for the alcohol and not super bitter. Is quite dry and finishes bitter and dry and tasting like cut grass. Its good but nowhere close to the best double IPA Iíve ever had and that grass aftertaste is not good.

Poured from tall can and consumed from can as it instructs me to do. I poured out a bit into a glass to make the rating. Pours copper in color with off white head. Aroma is grapefruit and malt. Tasty stuff.

16 oz. can from the Booyamachine himself. Itís every bit as good as people claim it is. Hops are straight up lumberyard pine. Very intense. Palate is destroyed well before the can is finished. Distribution is so limited but if you can get your hands on it, you should grab as many as you can.

Bottle. Grapefruit peel and pine aroma - very intense. Cloudy golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Lingering bitter aftertaste.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
First time actually pouring it in a glass. Poured a nice opaque straw/orange color with a finger and a half white head. Scent is definitely more pronounced when sampling from the can, but it is still fantastic. Strong floral hops dominate, a little citrus, and a little hay. Taste is like a hop punch in the teeth. Awesome citrus and resiny hops sip after sip. Bitterness is slight and well balanced and the 8% alcohol is hidden well. One of the best!

16 oz can courtesy of Dan the man, thanks Dan! I drank the first half from the can (as instructed) second half poured a hazy straw color with a two finger bone white head. Sticky retention. Aroma is stupid. Like a sniffing a handful of citra hops. Mixed with some earthy fresh undertones, itís floral and spicy. Really wonderful. Taste is amazing, like hops in a can. Extremely fresh, sweet tropical fruits upfront, melon, mango, citrus, balanced flawlessly by a caramel malt backbone and finishing with a nice crisp finish. Bitterness like the rind of a grapefruit. Mouthfeel is bubbly and excellently carbonated, a medium thickness makes this extremely drinkable. I would have liked to guzzle a whole 4pk of these guys. By far one of the best double IPAs out there (east coast pliny, anyone?) Extraordinary brew, get it if you can!
