16-11-12 From the can (sauf petite quantité pour voir la couleur et le développement de la biere en verre): Jaune-dorée. légèrement trouble, vive effervescence bien répartie, beau filet de mousse blanche recouvrant le produit. Puissant arômes de houblon en premiers lieux suivant de fortes notes de sapins/pins/forêts et en finale des arômes un peu désagréable de passé date, mais qui n’affecte pas le goût (bonne can). Centrée sur le houblon herbacée. Bonne amertume tranchante au départ ,mais qui se laisse désirée par la suite. Corps moyen, texture terreuse, légèrement ronde, asser forte carbonisation, finale légèrement astringente et très herbacée.

Stuff is like eating a handful of hops with little bitterness. Get back to this review tomorrow when I have another.

Finally managed to get my hands on one of these and it was well worth the wait. Took a few sips from the can before pouring. Lovely dank, hoppy aroma with a slight tropical sweetness. It’s an explosion of flavour with piney bitter hops, mango, slight pineapple and slight citrus fruits. A lovely bitter and hoppy aftertaste works so well with the sweet fruitiness. So well balanced and more than lived up to expectations. Not too bitter, not too sweet and one of, if not the best DIPAs I’ve tried. No idea when this was canned but it tastes very fresh. Outstanding.

Puszka kupiona 26.06, pite 28.07, daty na puszce nie odnajduje. Kolor pomarańczowy lekko mętny. Piękna, wyskoka, drobno pęcherzykowa piana ale niestety szybko znika pozostawiając lekką koronkę. Bardzo intensywny aromat amerykańskiego chmielu, bardzo cytrusowy, lekko żywiczny, mega orzeźwiający zapach wręcz zielonych szyszek chmielu. Dość pełne w smaku. Bardzo pijalne. Konkretne grejpfrutowa goryczka, lekko zalegająca. Świetne piwo!

Originally reviewed on 8/3/2011. On tap at the Alchemist in Waterbury, VT. $4 for a 12 oz. pour. Can’t beat that. Hazy orange body with a delicious white head. The beer sticks and leaves lacing all down the side of the glass. Waves of hop aromas. Unbelievably delicious citrus and floral hops. It has the strongest citrus hop aroma I’ve ever smelled. Great hop flavor up front that just lasts and lasts. Somewhere in the distance is a slight sweetness to balance it out. There is hardly any bitterness. Slick and easy to drink. A gulpable IPA. I put back 3 of these easily. The best IPA I have had and a great endnote for my east coast beer trek. Worth the drive and something I hope to get once it is canned!

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 [A PRESENT FROM BERLIN BEER WEEK,special thanks to eric]. From the can, i don’t know how looks this beer. Grassy aroma on the first from the can, followeed by piney, citruss hops presence. A little bit of caramel too. Full flavored ipa, a lot of sweet bready malt on the first, little stop fuelled of tropical fruit, like anans, papaya, a little bit of mango. Re start with the citrussy notes, a lot of orange and grapefruit, suggestion of orange flowers. Infinitely final and aftertaste with thw grassy, piney notes. Dank on the palate, medium body and oily mouthfeel. What an umbelieveble beer. Beest DIPA ever. For sure. 😊 i’m so glad of this present. Birra che merita la fama che ha. Condivisa con un grande amico che mi ha omaggiato facendomela assaggiare, e direttamente dalla lattina. Non posso sapere che aspetto anbia, ma basandomi su delle foto djrei splendido. Appena aperta, la lattina sprigiona aroma forre di luppolo. Anche così si sente pino, seguito da erba, seguito da arancia e pompelmo, ancora in sottofondo caramello. Aroma domplesso e buonissimo. In bocca si presenta ancora più complessa. Attacco dolciastro, un po’ di pane subito seguito da un ondata abrasiva di pino e di verde. Potrebbe sembrare qjel tipo di birra abrasiva, ma il pino non copre ogni aspetto, lascia spazio a frutta tropicale dolce, anans e papaya essenzialmente con suggestione di melone acqua e mango. Arriva la componente agrumata, pompelmo e arancia croccante, suggestione di fiori d’arancio che torna al naso, prima di altra dolcezza che è data da pesca acerba, candita. Rirorna poi una estrema secchezza pee un finale eterno in cui ancora il pimo e gli agrumi si mescolano. Ogni tanro, emergeva sul finale dopo la componente agrumata anche una certa componente di caramello. Un eterno andirivieni dinsapori, per una birra quasi liscia e che chiedeva immediatamente la sorsata successiva. Esperienza onirica e quasi surrwale, mai bevuta una birra del geneee. Un grazie speciale ad una persona speciale che h regalato una perla del genere.

Canned. No clear date, but this was released within the week I believe, so it’s fresh. I know it says drink from the can, so I’ll do some in the can, some out. Pours hazy unfiltered yellow with a very creamy white head. Aroma is fresh slightly dank hops, tropical fruits, mango, citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, piney resin. Flavor is just a burst of hops. Piney goodness, slight dankness, distinctly sweet note up front, grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine note, tropical notes. In between the citrus and tropical fruits, there’s a distinct sweetness up front that continues into the middle. Not as sweet as Lawson’s Sip of Sunshine, but still not overly bitter at all. Not boozy. Super crushable. Nice sticky sweet mouthfeel. This is awesome. I could drink this all day. Normally I’d sip a DIPA and just savor this, but this I just want to down immediately and crack open another!

473 mL can. Pours (sorry folks) deeply murky, green tinged burnt orange, almost opaque with hop and yeast matter with a massive head of lasting white. Nose leaps from the glass, dank and citrusy hops. Lots of pine, resin, grapefruit, orange, earthy spices, peach and some tropical fruit. Body is surprisingly light with average carbonation. Creamily textured, silky smooth and saturated with hop oils. Lightly sweet grainy and bready malt followed up with a massive hop bitterness that somehow remains dangerously drinkable. A class of it’s own, a very different beast. Delicious.
