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!

Sample at a tasting. Fruity and quite dank. Light malt sweetness with dank notes and a somewhat harsh bitterness. Not up to the hype, I am afraid.

Hazy, straw color, Aroma is good, Hoppy but not too much, well hidden. But when taste it, the hoppy flavor comes very strong. Very complex but well balanced. Piney... Dry finish.

Can, courtesy of Casp. Finally getting the chance to try this! Nose is clogged, but I hear that is not important for this beer anyway. Thick, heavy, fruity, intense. Very, very tasty. Some pines, some tropical stuff. Long fruity mango finish, very nice. Good stuff.

Can from the brewery, less than a week old.
A completely opaque straw gold with a juicy sweet fruity hop bouquet of orange blossoms, prickly pear and mild pine. Med-full bodied with a relatively soft mouthfeel and a super dry finish. The taste lives up to the hype with tons of juicy hops playing all over the spectrum from fruity to peppery to piney this is good stuff but wasn’t mind-blowing or anything.

Unas de las cervezas mas completas que conozco, bomba de lupulo sin ser necesariamente una bomba de amargor, gran balance.

Can via facebook trade. Thanks Javier. Poured from can like instructed. On first sip was a bit underwhelmed however on second the flavor becomes a little more apparent. Peach and melon and a bit of light resin on the backend. A little onion to round things out. Nowadays there are plenty local double IPAs that would stand up to this. It's nice but maybe a bit over hyped. Between this and pliney the elder I would take pliney.

16 oz can @ Idletyme Brewing. Pours hazy pale yellow golden with thin white head. Aroma is juicy lemony fresh hops, earthy light caramel malt. Taste is clean light caramel malt; big earthy hops - lemon, grapefruit, and grassy notes stand out. This is excellent, but honestly overrated.

Lots of citrus and floral hips. Very smooth for a double IPA. Maybe the hype set my expectations too high.
