Can in trade with phatdog1! Pours a hazy golden orange with dissipating creamy off-white head that webs nicely. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is a slightly bitter menagerie of tropical fruits and citrus with a nice caramel malt back end. Nothing over the top, a nice balance. Great IPA.

Can in Massachusetts, thanks so much to my cousin Lauren who saved a couple for me! (and to know that she loves this as much as all of us, is just great). Fantastic aroma, dank, tart hops with vinegar. Body is huge resiny hops. Full, heavy mouthfeel, and heavy acid hop finish. Rich and smooth. This is crazy huge and thick but oddly restrained and balanced in that context of huge dipa. Funky citrus, citrus rind. Sticky sweetness. Crazy good. Rich and tasty. East coast’s intense dipa king.. east coast Pliny. Both beers I simply wish I could have more often.

Amazing aroma of pineapple, peaches, and tropical fruits. Taste is fruity with a really well balances bitterness that is quite small for being an Dbl IPA.

A great DIPA one of the best out there. The only thing I don’t like about this beer is the chunks of fish food flakes floating around in it. Other than that everything about this beer is great.

2.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From the can, obviously but poured into a tulip. Huge, overwhelming aromas of fresh pine, peaches, citrus pith & spicy hops; you could seriously sniff this all day long and not get bored. Poured a cloudy amber orange with a thin head, that dies to a fine lace. Well, I wasn’t expecting this......the taste is just so one dimensional with fresh pine, spicy bitter hops...........and then nothing. No linger, no malt to back it up, no hint of sweetness, nothing, nada, zilch. There is just no finish!! It’s like drinking a stripped wine. I just don’t know what all the hype is about.....oh wait, I do......it’s just hype and everyone is on this train.

(can) The grand finally celebrating 1883 ELCO 30th HS reunion at the Porch in Myerstown. Drank straight from the can by the recommendation of bartender. Let’s not get too serious. It’s beer, It’s fun. Ultra smooth for this IBU. Even a novice can appreciate the quality of this fine ultra- hoppy IPA. The high ABV is well disguised.
