Thanks to adamjackson for this awesome brew via trade. It doesnít look the part, but it definitely acts the part in every other category. First can poured into two pint glasses, one for me and one for my wife (hell of a post-baby beer!). Off yellow hazy pour with white head. Second one consumed from the can as advised by...the can. Smells like a dream orchard filled with ripe fruits: orange, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, hint of evergreen. Tastes more ripe than it smells. Perfect resinous hops intermingle with ripe citrus. Bitterness is very low and alcohol is remarkably unnoticeable 8%. One of the three best IPAs I have ever enjoyed.

Well I got to finally try one...can at a bottle (can) share in Boca Raton, FL. Small snifter. Pours light in color with significant sediment. A hazy yellowish pour. Very light head. Very potent hop aroma of pine and pine resin along with grapefruit. Balanced very well with the malts on the taste. Mostly a pine and floral taste along with citrus. It didnít seem to be an 8%. Finishes dry and clean.

this is a very good. that being said, it is very expensive for what it is. i have had better beers but i do enjoy me a heady when i am feeling saucy. great on the nose, super floral, and not to sweet like most double ipaís can be. if you donít have an ipa glass, keep this beer in the can. it really makes a difference.

Can shared generously by Max at tasting. Pours hazy apricot-hued yellow with thick foamy head. Aroma is outrageous; this is the best smelling IPA Iíve ever encountered. Lovely aroma of grapefruit with notes of lemon and lime zest and tropical fruits. Just heavenly. Taste is lots of hoppy citrus pith, grapefruit juice and light pine. Great balanced. Terrific finish. Definitely lives up to the hype.

Hazy, orange yellow color. One finger head that falls to a thick collar leaving a solid ring of soapy lacing. Vibrant carbonation.
Citrus and citrus nose. Tangerine, grapefruit, grapefruit, lemon, lime, mango. Holy crap.
Tropical fruit bowl taste. Touches of malt backbone. Hops sing in harmony with this. High acid but not overly bitter. Complex mother.
Long lasting candied citrus feel. Perfect carbonation. Oily, dry and just touches of sweet. Brilliant, just brilliant
