Clearly one of the best if not the best IPA out there. Great appearance, great taste. Lots of hops going on! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A once in a lifetime beer for me. On a business trip, I met a couple guys at Mekong that had made a beer run to the brewery. They said this can only be bought in a twenty mile radius of the brewery. Well worth the trip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 Mike gave me this beer. Everyone should have a friend like Mike! Thanks dude you rock! I didnít follow the instructions on the can. Cloudy golden. Dry grainy hoppy nose. Hoppy wheaty and a nice sweetness to go with it. Fresh rich oily hops.

To me, the Gold Standard. Beautiful peach, cloudy color. Foamy light head. Aromas of tangerines, lemons, vanilla, a sticky forest floor, and Humboldt-county-kind. Hop forward flavors with citrus, burnt caramel, and mild, balanced bitterness. A nice long finish, still haunting my palate as I type. Makes me warm and fuzzy, happy to be alive! I want to leave the brewmaster in my will.

Bought from the cannery in Waterbury. Was excited to try it and it didnít disappoint. In fact it is unreal how good it is. Resin, spruce, citrus, grass on the nose, but the body is light, itís dry, itís balanced, alcohol well integrated. Also the most recent one I drank smelled like weeeeed man. It was really pronounced. In any case, itís a delicious beer, I literally have nothing bad to say about it, hence the 5. Buy it when you see it.

Tortman18 (188) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Very small pour just for appearance. dark orange with a small white head. Nose is all hops. Very floral and resinous with citrus and some tropical fruitiness. There is a slight bitterness present. Mouth has a ton of resinous/piney hops with a very subtle hint if tropical and citrus. A lot of grapefruit. There is a slight bitterness present again, but the use of bittering hops was minimal. This beer was so smooth with an intense hop bite that remained sharp an hour after cracking the can open. This one will get my 3rd perfect rating for sure.
