4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Can, with MASSIVE thanks to Fred82 for hooking me up. Pours deep amber/orange, thick off-white head, stunning lacing. So far, so good. Dear God! The nose is like sticking your head in a bag of hop pellets. I honestly have never had a beer that smelled this strongly of straight hops. Nose is grapefruit, spicy pine, gorgeous resiny, resiny pine. Flavours of spice, rich hop cone, resiny grapefuit. Words utterly fail me, this is possibly the greatest IPA of any description to ever pass my lips. A stunning effort.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 A big, big THANKS to Damico for this can share. Pours a cloudy orange amber color with a nice white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit and earthiness, with some caramel mixed in. Has a sweet caramel taste with ridiculously perfect dank hop resiny hit. Smooth as can be. The harsh hop hit does not outlast the finish, leaving you with delicate grapefruit notes at the end of this perfection. Not overhyped.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 Can at Kernel Brewery tasting. It pours hazy orange, with a thin foamy white head. The nose is pine, orange sherbet, orange squash, peach and grapefruit. The taste is orange, tangy marmalade, mango, tangerine, peach, grapefruit, pine, resin, big hop bite and some metal, with bitter citric finish. Good balance, medium body and average carbonation. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 16oz can. Thanks for sharing Sean! Dank papaya aroma. Cloudy dark amber with whitish rim aroma.
Slippery, but decent hop flavor profile. Tangy and sharp. I’m
not digging this somehow. Sharply bitter in the finish. I want
more pungency and cleanliness. Too much cloud. Bummer, not that great.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Extremely hoppy aromas of cat pee, cut grass, grapefruit. Flavors mirror the the aromas. This is an absolutely fantastic IPA

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2012 Thanks Spence. Pint Can. Super haxzy orange ameber with a medium sized white head. Nose is full of hop resin, some sweetness, citrus. Flavor is similarly super resinous, sweet, mild bitterness. Pretty tasty, alcohol slightly noticeable.
Rerate: Had a fresh 8 pack of this from the brewery and it changed my tune a bit. Fucking great beer.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2012 Absolute hop masterpiece here. If you like hops and lots of em find this beer. The flavor is citrus, pine, grass, and herbal spicy notes. Every type of hop flavor is huge and not subtle. You can see chunks of hops floating in it but dont be scared theyre delicious. Loved it.
