16 oz can courtesy of Dan the man, thanks Dan! I drank the first half from the can (as instructed) second half poured a hazy straw color with a two finger bone white head. Sticky retention. Aroma is stupid. Like a sniffing a handful of citra hops. Mixed with some earthy fresh undertones, it’s floral and spicy. Really wonderful. Taste is amazing, like hops in a can. Extremely fresh, sweet tropical fruits upfront, melon, mango, citrus, balanced flawlessly by a caramel malt backbone and finishing with a nice crisp finish. Bitterness like the rind of a grapefruit. Mouthfeel is bubbly and excellently carbonated, a medium thickness makes this extremely drinkable. I would have liked to guzzle a whole 4pk of these guys. By far one of the best double IPAs out there (east coast pliny, anyone?) Extraordinary brew, get it if you can!

Gift can that is product of a Smokey and the Banditesque beer run. Pale hazy yellow, no lasting head, little lace. Hops on nose. Sip is good, more hops than malt with plenty of each. Hops turn bitter fast. I get it, but this is more a case of demand or exclusivity prompting a higher rating.

Hazy yellow orange pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus, peach, pine, and toffee. Taste is peach and citrus with a bit of pine. Easy bitterness. Soft palate. Great beer.

Very hazy light golden and a soft white ringed head. Nose is grassy spearmint, husky malt and more honied citrus. Initial taste is an excellent strip of bitterness, fairly grainy and faintly grapefruit. Fades into a decent nosh of spicy honey booziness. Carbonation is middling and mouthfeel is fairly sticky, touch of booziness. Finishes clean enough, more minty citrus and creamy key lime and lingers out steely and vibrant and not at all like a fresh sipping DIPA. Still tremendous and glad to have it within a month to disprove the notion three month old plus cans weren’t as smashing as it would be semifresh.

Goryczka zdrowa i mocna.
Barwa bursztynowa nieco zmętniona.
Aromat to już grejpfrut i cytrusy.
Piwo jest ok ale chyba hype trochę za duży.
Sculpin z Ballast Point bardziej powalił

Un corp onctueux qui dévoile des saveurs douces de melon miel, mandarine et légèrement florale. L’amertume se mélange merveilleusement bien avec les saveurs. Un chef d’oeuvre tout simplement.

Can from a friend. Light and hazy amber with medium amount of white head. Aroma of hop, resin and grapefruit. Medium body. Soapy. More resin. Drinkable enough, very hoppy, bitter and, honestly, strange in a unique "this is interesting" kind of way. Must be a million types of hops in here.

Pours a hazy light orange gold. Aroma is delightful mix of citrus, mango and pine. Taste is bright citrus and tropical fruit with gentle hop bite. Nice carbonation. Nice complexity. Nice balance. Excellent.

Four-pack after waiting in line to pick up Lawson’s Sip of Sunshine. Was actually offered Heady as well so figured I better take it. Brewer recommends drinking it straight from can, however, its color is one of the strongest traits. Orange-cloudy is pretty darn close to perfect. Citrus aroma a plus as well. Piney-citrus taste-too bitter for my taste.Clean finish. A good beer but I have trouble understanding the hype. Can name a number of Vermont beers I’d rather drink before this.

I intend to have this again. Courtesy of Magic Mike Trahan. Beautiful glowing golden color. Aroma was surprisingly faint and taste was a dry, hoppy unified spicy beam. Not the most complex IPA I’ve ever had which makes me wonder how it was stored and how old it was. But obviously a top tier product.
