Caramel, floral, spruce, herbs, and enough resin that if I closed my eyes, I could confuse it for the hopís mostly illegal cousin. The nose on this is otherworldly, I think I sprained my olfactory glands. It poured a murky golden tan, and the taste fit the aroma but was more subdued and bitter. A fine DIPA that is a must try for the aroma if you ever have an opportunity.

Fantastic beer. Have had it several times now, and it always blows my mind! Itís thick as cream, and every sip is better than the last one. Even the final sip... I love it!!

The first time I tried this beer, I didnít get what the hype was about. Sure, it was a very good IPA, but I just didnít get it. After the 2nd tasting, I am starting to get it. The key is to treat this beer as if it were a maltier brew, and let it warm to 50-55 F. This allows the flavors to really open up, and show what makes this such a great IPA. It is pretty bitter, but with loads of citrus and tropical fruit, and nice balance. Itís easy to forget just how high the IBUís are on this one, because it is so smooth and drinkable. I have to admit, this beer lives up to the hype - or at least, it comes close enough for me.

Wow. Shared a can of this with a couple of friends. Very complex array of hop flavors without being overpowering.

473ml can served in a tulip (to take a look in the appearance) and also drunk from the can as suggested by the brewer. A: Pours a hazy yellow to orange to beige color forming a small think bubbled creamy head. Low retention and only few lingering lacings left in the glass S: Hops bomb, of course. Refreshing and delicious. Strongly tropical fruity profile with strong notes of green mango (Iíve grown up in Brazil and weíve had some mango trees in our backyard. So, believe me, green mango smells pretty much like this). A bit lemony. Malts and some sweetness T: Excellent taste. Again, of course, giving emphasis to the hops. But the malts profile is also very good. Pale malts, mainly, something between Maris Otter and Perl, Slightly sweet upfront but with an overall, dry and crispy malt profile. Intensive hops bitterness, however, very well harmonized. Notes of citrus lemony hops. Green mango, tropical fruits. Light notes of brown sugar M: Medium body and carbonation. Strong citrus hoppy aftertaste O: Very drinkable. Excellent experience. I was expecting an excellent IIPA and thatís exactly what Iíve got [ BA Review @ 6/16/2013 ]

Location: Can shared by Pinsky at Daveís Bachelor Party, 9/27/14, Rating #4000!

Aroma: It has a big hoppy aroma of grapefruit/tropical hops, pine, and a bit of caramel
Appearance: I drank this one straight from the can as the can instructs you to do
Flavor: The taste has lots of pine and tropical flavors, a little sweet, with a big hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a pretty smooth mouthfeel, and a clean, dry finish
Overall Impression: I was quite excited that I finally got to try/rate this. Thanks Pinksy! Iím very happy to enter this one as my 4k tick! Iíd like to thank all the inablers who made this possible by sharing beer with me, buying me beer, or just not judging me for how much beer I drink (okay, that last one is really just for my wife). As for the beer, sometimes hype can go to far and the beer has no chance to live up to it. This is not one of those times. This is a world class beer! Iíd love to get my hands on more of these.

Can at tasting. Big garlic hop flavor. Reminds me of "Wings of Armegeddon". Bright garlic, yeasty golden malt body. Its good, its tasty, its solid...but this is not life changing stuff...hardly line-worthy.

Very aromatic indeed. Very sweet, soft at first, with many fruits, brown sugar and a hint of cinnamon, but a massive hop-whallop (120 IBUs) takes over shortly. Smooth and creamy throughout, low carbonation. Not at the top for the style, but quite tasty and dangerously drinkable.

Can, sample. Didnít take proper tasting notes. Overwhelming ipa, but very drinkable, mouthfeel is seriously pleasant. The sample was way too small though...

Pint can to snifter. Golden cloudy yellow. Fluffy head. Ridiculous piney hop aroma. Tastes surprisingly balanced and drinkable but with a never ending bitter finish thatís got me making faces. Iím not a hop head.
