reggiedunlop (3107) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours a hazy orange/honey color with a thick, foamy white head...nice lacing. Aroma has leafy citrus with hints of tea and tropical fruit...very floral and leafy. Flavor follows suit...adds so e light hoppy spice...slight pine and resin creep in for firm bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a dry resinous/earthy finish. Damn good!

carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Can with a sticker... Aroma is pine citrus and a hint of can... (Alchemist says drink in the can) mouthful is crisp and we’ll balanced IPA goodness. It is a session well done. Just wish it could be a toto kinda beer.... Instead of a pop up sale rarity

EamonTheGreat (145) - USA - MAY 12, 2014
The aroma is very creamy with hints of citrus. Taste is much the same. Smooth mouth feel with a creamy vanilla character that blends well with the citrusy hops. A delicious take on an IPA. Similar to Heady but distinctly creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

id say Heady Topper is better, but you can taste the similarities here as well.

This is FAN-DAMN-TASTIC! I personally think this one might edge out Heady Topper as the best IPA I've had.
