4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Nice rich golden-amber color with decent layer of sudsy off-white head. A floral, citrus-spiked sweet hop aroma and light maltiness which carries through in taste. " Waves" of hop flavors; floral then a bit earthy in the finish with some bite in the cheeks (so to speak). Really a great beer.
I was fortunate to try it from the can and on tap at the pub back before the flood with some excellent food.

Pours hazy golden color. Aroma is huge on hops. Taste is strong in hops with a fantastic malt base. Great balance between the strong hop flavor and strong malt. Fantastic.

Poured from a can. Hazy gold with a huge white head. Citrus aroma. Citrus taste with a little sweetness. Leaves a funny bitterness. Good, but not as good as Pliny. Best east coast beer I've had, but that's not saying much.

Pour is hazy orange with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is of orange peel, citrus juice, caramel, and grapefruit. Flavor is bitter at first but has a sweet body and finish - pears, grapefruit, mango, orange peel, toasted dough, caramel. Alcohol is well hidden.

Can from Jay. Pours a hazy orange/gold/yellow with nice off white foam. Smells earthy and yeasty, a little tropical with a hint of lemon and carbon dioxide. Tastes a little nutty and fairly malty, has a pretty diverse hop start, but it fades to just plain bitter with a touch of alcohol at the end. Really didn’t live up to the hype, though it is a solid IPA.

Finally. Orange with about a finger of tight white head. Great hop aroma, orange, pineapple, apricot, mango, grapefruit, pine, herbal, resinous. The taste really follows the nose with a light malt backbone. It starts off very sweet and fruity and the bitterness slowly catches up. I got just a slight hint of alcohol as it warmed. Overall, this is a fantastic DIPA. I don’t know if it completely lived up to the hype just because the hype is so crazy, but it is about as near perfect as any D/IPA I’ve had.

Pours a nice golden color with an amazing aroma of hops and floral notes. Tastes the same but mixed with Jesus’ tears.....yeah, its that good. I challenge someone to find a better beer.
