Pours a golden amber with a two-finger off-white head. No "floaties" that many reviewers speak of. Nice lacing. A complex and unique aroma. Redolent of pine, tropical fruit, citrus, and earthiness; the kind of earthiness you experience walking through the parking lot of a Grateful Dead concert (for those old enough to remember the Dead). As it warms, there's a wonderfully faint floral aroma. Through all those hops one can still get a whiff of the sweet malt! Incredibly complex. The taste is very juicy, more fruit than pine. Tropical fruit hits the tongue first followed by citrus, mainly grapefruit, and dried apricot. Lots of caramel and biscuity malt flavors balance this hop bomb perfectly. Full bodied with the perfect amount of carbonation. Overall, this is my highest rated beer and my favorite beer yet. Truly worth all the hype (and the aggravation to get it)! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can courtesy of Kermis. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin whispy white head. The aroma is light citrus hop, pine needle. The flavour is medium bitter with a woody resin, light spice pepper palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a lingering bitter super light toothpaste bitter finish.

Unexpected bonus share by Kermis. Poured milky yellow/orange with a small off white head. Aroma of medium sweet citrus and soft malt. Medium body, flavour is sweet orange and moderately malty. Bittersweet finish.

Thanks to suttree for sharing a big can of this one. Dirty orange and hazy with a lasting film of cream. Big nose of resin and grapefruit with some caramel holding it up. Taste is the same rich goodness. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and a good balance.

On tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT. Pours a somewhat peachy brown, quite hazy, with a billowy, white head that dissipates to thin film within a minute or two. Sticky, clumpy lacing. Nose is a bouquet of fruit and citrus notes nearly masking the malts. Grapefruit and orange zest come through strong with peach and apricot hints. Taste is bitter, but a surprisingly mild bitterness. Especially for a Double IPA, I expected it to be more harsh, but this is quite delicately balanced. Medium to full bodied; carbonation is quite lively. Excellent brew!

Incredible grapefruit flavor without being overpowering. Was much more drinkable than I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is pine apple, grapefruti, pine, mango, resin, biscuit, grass. Taste is sweet ripe fruit, medium smooth pine and grassy bitterness, finish is rounded lasting bitterness with a mid sweet biscuit and fruity sweetness. Smooth oily texture, medium bodied.

malrubius (1655) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Looks like orange juice with white head and lace. Floral and orange hoppy aroma with hints of spicy grass. Fruity bready orange sweetness. Surprisingly mild medium bitterness. Nicely attenuated medium light body with great super fine carbo. Excellent. Best beer in the world? Not so sure.

Great, massive DIPA. Pineapple scented, cloudy, hugely drinkable (for an 8% beer). From can & poured into glass. 5 days after distributor dropped off. #fresh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange with a complex hop aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine, and tangerine. The flavor is stellar with an amazing blend of sweet fruit and medium bitterness throughout. Amazing beer

Thank you, thank you, thank you to WillemsUrenkel for that can! Looks really good. Beer in the glass very zippy, nice head. Starts intense hoppy, bitter with fruity notes of grapefruit, lemon. Quite dry, but not too much. Also some grasy hints. Well balanced bitter-hoppy finish. A great beer!
