philipmeese (81) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - MAR 13, 2013
From a taster snifter at the brewery: Light, sudsy head with a little staying power. amber color. Big bready aroma with piney hop overdrive. Huge taste with a soft but pronounced bitterness. Stays on the palate like a slice of bread, initial bitterness softens quickly. This is a great complex DIPA that is unusually easy to drink.

Had fresh one from the can. definitely one of the best DIPAs I've ever had. Beautiful hoppyness with tropical notes and incredibly balanced and drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Airborne from USA to Norway. Aroma is hoppy, very hoppy. Taste is citrus, malt, some toffee and more hops. Amazing.

Open the can and glorious hops come wafting out. Not sure thereís anything out there quite like this. Aroma is all hops: resinous, evergreen, spicy and fruit (think guava and nectarines). Taste is absolutely on-point with the hype. Balance, drinkability and flavor in spades. Dare I say tannic. Just difficult to put into words. If you love hops and are fortunate enough to get this beer fresh, welcome to the party.

Ahh the infamous "heady". Our love affair goes back a good while, so itís about time for a rating. Pours a pale (who the heck cares) "drink from the can!". Aroma is uber dank hop resin, SUPER piney, orange p(h)eel, fresh grass, big time tropical fruits. Taste is sort of in itís own arena... not that itís the best DIPA out there, but just so unique - full of pine, pineapple, tropical fruits, resiny hops, bread, grass, definite twang of bittersweet malt vs. hops toward the end, killer balance. This stuff is just jammed with sticky, thick, gooey hops.. makes for a rather full mouthfeel. If you didnít like this beer, get another can (or a case), make sure itís super fresh, and drink up.

16 oz can from a trade with mdg164. Pours hazy golden orange color with off white head. Dank resin aroma with citrus and pine. Similar flavors with a hint of sweet malts. Medium body with average carbonation. Delicious. Thanks Marc.

stoutnick (385) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
On tap at Blackback Flyshop and Taproom, Vermont. Peach and cloudy. Smells like tropical fruit. Taste is medium carbonation, fruity first then bitter finish. Floral hop character with a bite. Lots of grapefruit and malt. Finish is fruit and resin in equal proportion. Good beer, but wouldnít drink everyday if I could - would prefer more fruitiness in the flavours.

Drunk from a can (as directed) at home. I wonder how much better on tap. It has a crisp, hoppy flavor and a pleasing aftertaste. The aroma was practically non-existent due to the can. A nice beer! ---Cheers, Si

Great beer. Hard to find and definitely better in the can than poured into a glass. I know it's suppose to be from the can but I didn't think it made a difference but it does.

Frank (2385) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2014
This pours a cloudy orange golden w/ a white head. The nose on the nose on this is just huge to the point where it feels almost exaggerated and unnatural, which makes it stand out in a crowded style. Itís not too terribly bitter and a bit sweet w/ loads of pine and skunk weed. This beer is huge but itís in no way harsh so it comes off as kind of mild for a IIPA. It strikes me as a bit heavy but I barely mind because itís so tasty.

Always straight from the can... have poured this a couple times but straight from the can is better. Silky smooth and soooooooo drinkable. Alcohol is easily hidden through wave after way of hoppy resin including pine, grapefruit, a hint of onion.
