UPDATED: NOV 19, 2013 At the brewery. Hazy light orange with foamy white head, not much lacing. Huge hop presence with ripe grapefruit and pine notes. Flavors of mixed citrus, orange peel and grapefruit, nicely balanced malt profile, hardly notice the alcohol... Certainly one of the best DIPAs... Outstanding! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

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!

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 (410) - 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!

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.

Pours a hazy burnt umber with a light creamy head. Deep funky hops with piney citrus notes. Aroma is in your face and a sign of the bold flavor to come. Drinks strong and smooth with a mellow maltiness laying under the powerful hops. A mildly bitter finish lingers for a moment but is rounded out well. Overall an outstanding IPA and it's easy to see why it's sought after. That said, the hype may be overplayed just a bit. Slightly reminiscent of Six Point's Hi-Res which is high up on my list. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Found a few cans at a store in upstate NY after striking out during an earlier trip to Vermont. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, dark fruit, spice, and some underlying bread and caramel in the aroma. Bitter citrus flavor, with lots of orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Bittersweet, spicy, crisp finish. Certainly really good, but maybe a touch overrated. I’ve had other big IPAs that were about as good, and a lot less trouble to find.
