Wow! Hops! Aroma of pine resin, lemon, slight grapefruit zest and amazing hops. Pours super hazy with orange and a foamy head. Dreggs even look good. Taste is like a hop explosion. Not too bitter. Sweet hops of grapefruit, resin, and caramel. Delicious IPA. I could drink this all night if I lived near Vermont.

16oz can from lemonhead, thanks Bry. Very hazy golden orange with a small dense off white head and lots of chunky coagulated proteins. Aroma of pine resin, floral, tropical fruit, citrus and caramel. Flavor is full of hops, you really can taste them, the bitterness is not overpowering and there is some light caramel sweetness. Medium body with soft carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. Fantastic beer, more hop flavor than I’ve ever experienced in a beer with out being overly bitter, alcohol is well hidden too.

Can thanks to Drewbeerme! Pours a very hazy gold with a sticky white head. Nose is fruity and fresh, woody and resiny hops and soft sweet malt notes as well. On tasting, firm bitterness though not harsh. Light sweetness and very fruity and woody hops. Clean and fresh overall. Really solid but not top of the world.

Merci Charles!! Bue à même la cannette de 500ml tel que recommandé. Au nez, herbe et agrumes de houblon, avec un côté... résineux, riche. Longue en bouche, moyennement sucrée, bien ronde tel qu’on s’y attend d’une double IPA, elle dégage des saveurs d’herbe (houblon) biens soutenues par le malt, et une finale amère très et très agréable au fil des rasades. Je me serais attendu à une sensation plus amère pour 120 IBU. Spectaculaire.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Can. Pours a dark copper with mininal head. Aroma is incredible. Very strong hop smells. Taste is nice and hoppy. Not bitter or over-powering. Alcohol is well balanced. Overall an incredibly good beer. Re-tried this at Darkness Day and was very impressed. It was better than I remembered it, the cans were also fresher.

Atom (1777) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Can pours a cloudy orange/copper with a medium white head. Aroma of apricot, oranges, grapefruit, slight scotch tape, caramel malts, and resinous hops. Taste of sweet caramel malts, slightly nutty, citrus, and resinous pine hops. Drank from the can and felt the same way. This is a really nice drinkable DIPA. However, it is nowhere near one of the best I’ve ever had, the hops just aren’t there. Over-hyped? I think so. I’d take a Daisy Cutter, Zombie Dust, or Day Tripper over this any day.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 1200th rating had to be a bit more or less special... Glad I got this one in a trade, allready was looking forward to it for a while. Got this in a can, and it should be pretty fresh. Drank it from the can, like is told on it, but also poured a small amount in a glass, to see how it looks. There are some small floaters inside (but allready drank some from the can, so mixed inside ofcourse with the bottom) in a golden coloured beer, a small to medium head, that maybe should hold some longer, but ok. Nice grassy hops, a decent amount of citrus and other fruits inside the smell, one of the best smelling beers I got till now. Also some grapefruits and peaches, very fruity and even sweet at the smell. The taste is very nice bittering grassy hops with a decent mixture of sour fruits, with a nice sweet touch to it, and a good bitter-citrus/grass end. Nice refreshing brew, maybe just over the top, but one I hope to get my hands on again, without pulling out a kidney or something. Retaste on 18 Aug 2014. Realy, drink this one fresh, cause the slightly aged I got today wasn’t that great. Still very good :)

Danish: Når man først er kommet sig over prislappen og de rigelige gær kloder der svømmer rundt i glasset., så er der kun et ord der popper op - himmerrigs øl. Brugen af humlen med så fantastisk aroma er sjælden set i det omfang. Skal smages af alle IPA elskere. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy, rather ugly yellow with lots of yeast and hop floaties, swirling about. Thin head. Superb nose of pine and pineapple. First sip yeilds piney, resiny bitterness with a big malt background of rich, chewy caramel. As it warms and I drank more, I was tasting sweet pineapple and mango and sugary plums but still had a nice dry, bitterness at the finish. Superb. Had two 4-packs this year and definitely need more.
