From a 16oz can into a clear plastic tumbler. Looks like a hefeweizen. Smells like walking through a sassafras grove on the warm summer afternoon. For its vividness and abv the beer is very balanced and soothing. Clingy, refreshing, layers of soft resinous dewy golden flowers, fruits, and herbs. Sweet vs bitter battle long toward a no decision. Can’t recall a better strong IPA in this classic American style.

Pours a hazy/murky golden amber, almost glows. Smells of pine, citrus, herbs and fresh floral hops. Taste is extremely danky and herbal, huge notes of pine, citrus and earthy hops. Medium body, medium carbonation. This goes toe to toe with 3 floyd dread naught in my opinion. I like them both equally, What sets this beer apart is its uniqueness. Not like any traditional ipa I have had, almost tastes like your squeezing the juice out of a nugget of hops and drinking it.. Which I love.

From the can in my hand on the beach and enjoying a very crisp hop aroma. Flavor is hoppy but not overly bitter with a bit of citrus and a touch of malt. Very very clean palate and nice short finish without the classic over hopped residue lingering.

Loved it and will buy it again. Would drink this everyday. Some people find it be a bit harsh to drink when fresh (I love it though) but give it a few weeks and it will be more balanced. Doesn’t taste the alcohol or the malt: hops have the center stage and they will perform a show you will remember all your life :)!

Incredibly flavorful DOUBLE IPA.. On par or better than stone - enjoy by or southern tier IPA and 2xipa - worth every swig!

jdjuice (313) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2014
The consummate hoppy beer. Very hop forward but not overwhelming, not dominated by citrus or piney hops, more herbal. Not too heavy or sweet like you sometimes get with an IIPA.

Can’t believe I had a IIPA from the can, and it actually works its magic awesomely! Starts with strong heady cannabis flavors then dives into deep grapefruit hoppiness. Very high drinkability, no useless bitterness, all about a crispy bouquet of hoppy flavors. The ultimate gift for hopheads!

maximet (39) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
Amber orange, cloudy with a thick white foam. Citrus, citrus and citrus smell all the way, with resinous/grassy smell. Taste is very balanced, a little bitter, quite nice. The aftertaste is long and fruity. Really a great beer.

WillemsUrenkel (421) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2014
Bought in a small shop in Vermont, opened in a Hotel in Manhattan a few days later. Pale orange and unclear in the glass. Fine foamy head. Fruity and hopy on the nose. Starts fruity, honey, smooth brewwater, earthy, pleasant longlasting bitterness on a malty base. If you have ever the chance to get one, do it!

drpimento (2153) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Clean hoppy aroma. Great appearance, plenty of head and lace. Flavor is hoppy mainly resin, some citrus, balanced with enough malt. Clean palate. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dandeman (484) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Olfactif: des notes de résineux, de gazon frais; typique des houblons Américains. Visuel: blonde / dorée avec une bonne mousse assez dense et laissant de belles traces. Gustatif: Entrée de fruits tropicaux suivie d’une finale très houblonnée aux notes de conifère et de gazon brulé. La présence massive de houblon frais du à un houblonnage à cru lui confère ce petit arrière goût de gazon brulé légèrement désagréable.
