4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 June 2, 2012:Thanks to dresden for this. Amazing beer. Perfect hazy orange colour with creamy off white head. Piney aroma. Taste is bitter and hoppy but with a nice balanced sweetness, honey, cloves, apples, oranges, banana. Brilliant beer.
June 18, 2014. My third time having this and this time the bottle was far from fresh, as I obtained it in December and who knows how fresh it was when I got it....and yet, this is still awesome. What an amazing beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(1 pint can from Toft Vin; BBD: Couldn’t really find it) Flavour is nicely grassy with notes of pine. Not too resiny like so many DIPA’s nor overly bitter. Just pleasant, tongue tingling flavourful bitterness that leaves a nice dry sensation on the tongue. Medium carbonation and a medium body. 1 cl poured in a glass reveals a slightly hazy golden brew with small floaties and little, fading white head. Aroma is herbal following the flavour with grassy and piney notes and a hint of dust. Quite pleasant but extremely expensive here, unfortunately (9 USD for one pint). Girlfriend says: "I wouldn’t be able to drink a full one of that."

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can @ Mikkeller Bar. Enjoyed from a glass, because I don’t play by the rules. Light hazy orange color with a significant amount of floating white sediment that slowly settles at the bottom of the glass. The nose is concentrated fresh syruppy pine and resin. Pineapple, mango, sweet-lip-smacking hops. It’s the usual nose is a big DIPA, just ramped up in intensity. The taste is huge pine, resin, more tropical fruits. Bitter dry finish. Very sweet but crazily drinkable. I had to conciously slow myself down while drinking this. The body’s full and sticky. dank. Overall, great. I was expecting a letdown, but for me this beer totally delivered. Deservedly praised.

I drank it from the can like they suggest. Very smooth hop taste that is very drinkable on a warm summer day. One of the best IPA’s out there. Right up there with Pliny and Hopslam.

16oz can into a 23oz wheat glass b/c it looks awesome and Id rather drink out of a glass although the can tells me not to. Taste is heavanly hoppy, grassy, organic soil and herbs, light on the internal carbination and pleasanlty refreshing and satisfying., Color is tan gold with golden grams and sunshine coating the glass. this is hoppy up front, during ,and it the aftertaste. so nice. definatley one of the best, if not the best, dipa Ive ever had. worth seeking out and enjoying. Vermont beer at its finest.

Can at home. The can tells me to drink from can... And I always do what cans tell me to - so no idea how it looks, But I guess a clear golden with a white/off-white head, and give it a 3. Very bitter with a low, hoppy sweetness. Lots of hops aromas. Mostly of spruce and grape-fruit but also some plant sap. Medium to full bodied, with an oily mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Long, bitter and extremely hoppy finish. Hoppy!

UPDATED: APR 23, 2015 I love the hoppiness of the beer and there’s very little to no bitterness. It’s a dark amber color and medium to full bodied.

Pours an orange/brownish color. Smell is bursting with hops and citrus. Taste is also very good, lots of hops, citrus, tropical fruits, not overly bitter. Overall a top quality beer worth seeking out.

Bottle shared by Dak. Pour is golden clear, with a small head, with oily texture. Aroma is wonderful hops which results in tons of citrus, with over the top grapefruit. Taste is citrus and hoppy bitterness. Finish is bitter.
