Wow! Drank from can as directed. So I'm just assuming the appearance is as good as it smells and tastes! This beer lives up to the hype! Big ole stinky American DIPA. Huge hop flavor. Citrusy and bitter! Lingering hop sticks around for quite some time! My kind of punch in the mouth big boy IPA! If I could only drink one beer for the rest of my life this would be it!! Wish it was distributed to NC. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Originally reviewed on 8/3/2011. On tap at the Alchemist in Waterbury, VT. $4 for a 12 oz. pour. Can’t beat that. Hazy orange body with a delicious white head. The beer sticks and leaves lacing all down the side of the glass. Waves of hop aromas. Unbelievably delicious citrus and floral hops. It has the strongest citrus hop aroma I’ve ever smelled. Great hop flavor up front that just lasts and lasts. Somewhere in the distance is a slight sweetness to balance it out. There is hardly any bitterness. Slick and easy to drink. A gulpable IPA. I put back 3 of these easily. The best IPA I have had and a great endnote for my east coast beer trek. Worth the drive and something I hope to get once it is canned!

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 [A PRESENT FROM BERLIN BEER WEEK,special thanks to eric]. From the can, i don’t know how looks this beer. Grassy aroma on the first from the can, followeed by piney, citruss hops presence. A little bit of caramel too. Full flavored ipa, a lot of sweet bready malt on the first, little stop fuelled of tropical fruit, like anans, papaya, a little bit of mango. Re start with the citrussy notes, a lot of orange and grapefruit, suggestion of orange flowers. Infinitely final and aftertaste with thw grassy, piney notes. Dank on the palate, medium body and oily mouthfeel. What an umbelieveble beer. Beest DIPA ever. For sure. 😊 i’m so glad of this present. Birra che merita la fama che ha. Condivisa con un grande amico che mi ha omaggiato facendomela assaggiare, e direttamente dalla lattina. Non posso sapere che aspetto anbia, ma basandomi su delle foto djrei splendido. Appena aperta, la lattina sprigiona aroma forre di luppolo. Anche cosě si sente pino, seguito da erba, seguito da arancia e pompelmo, ancora in sottofondo caramello. Aroma domplesso e buonissimo. In bocca si presenta ancora piů complessa. Attacco dolciastro, un po’ di pane subito seguito da un ondata abrasiva di pino e di verde. Potrebbe sembrare qjel tipo di birra abrasiva, ma il pino non copre ogni aspetto, lascia spazio a frutta tropicale dolce, anans e papaya essenzialmente con suggestione di melone acqua e mango. Arriva la componente agrumata, pompelmo e arancia croccante, suggestione di fiori d’arancio che torna al naso, prima di altra dolcezza che č data da pesca acerba, candita. Rirorna poi una estrema secchezza pee un finale eterno in cui ancora il pimo e gli agrumi si mescolano. Ogni tanro, emergeva sul finale dopo la componente agrumata anche una certa componente di caramello. Un eterno andirivieni dinsapori, per una birra quasi liscia e che chiedeva immediatamente la sorsata successiva. Esperienza onirica e quasi surrwale, mai bevuta una birra del geneee. Un grazie speciale ad una persona speciale che h regalato una perla del genere.

Canned. No clear date, but this was released within the week I believe, so it’s fresh. I know it says drink from the can, so I’ll do some in the can, some out. Pours hazy unfiltered yellow with a very creamy white head. Aroma is fresh slightly dank hops, tropical fruits, mango, citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, piney resin. Flavor is just a burst of hops. Piney goodness, slight dankness, distinctly sweet note up front, grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine note, tropical notes. In between the citrus and tropical fruits, there’s a distinct sweetness up front that continues into the middle. Not as sweet as Lawson’s Sip of Sunshine, but still not overly bitter at all. Not boozy. Super crushable. Nice sticky sweet mouthfeel. This is awesome. I could drink this all day. Normally I’d sip a DIPA and just savor this, but this I just want to down immediately and crack open another!

473 mL can. Pours (sorry folks) deeply murky, green tinged burnt orange, almost opaque with hop and yeast matter with a massive head of lasting white. Nose leaps from the glass, dank and citrusy hops. Lots of pine, resin, grapefruit, orange, earthy spices, peach and some tropical fruit. Body is surprisingly light with average carbonation. Creamily textured, silky smooth and saturated with hop oils. Lightly sweet grainy and bready malt followed up with a massive hop bitterness that somehow remains dangerously drinkable. A class of it’s own, a very different beast. Delicious.

Sensoric glass. Golden, medium hazy with big, semi-densed, white head. Good lacing and head retention. Medium to high piney, resin and tropical fruits (passion fruit, lychee) aroma. Clear malty (toast, cereal) aroma. Taste is high bitter with nice semi-sweet, medium malty punch in the middle. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, finishis semi-dry and highly bitter. Very nice DIPA, well balanced and packe with lots of aromatic hops.

No dobra. Kupiłem bro z 3 ręki, Najpierw stwierdziłem że nie wypada wybrzydzać bo w marcu zrobione (pite w lipcu) więc może nie pachnieć., Później mi wyszło, że wszystkich zachwyca, no to i mnie miało zachwycić. Nie zachwyciło. Nie pijcie starych piw.

KW92 (511) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 10, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zamglone. Piana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, długa.
AROMAT: Bardzo intensywny. Potężne uderzenie amerykańskich chmieli. Na pierwszym planie owoce tropikalne (mango i marakuja) oraz cytrusy (klementynki, pomarańcze, pomelo, grejpfruty) . W tle standardowo - karmel oraz zbożowość.
SMAK: Cytrusowo-żywiczny. Rewelacyjny - słodki, owocowy posmak. Goryczka cytrusowa - wysoka, zalegająca.
OGÓLNIE: Brakuje słów by opisać wrażenia po degustacji tego "nektaru". Zapach i smak tego piwa to świetna reklama "craft-u" na całym świecie. Najlepsza Imperialna IPA, jaką miałem okazję spróbować!
