Oh my great good god. Delivered out of the blue by the water expert himself.....I fortunately had some lord hobo squirreled away.. to trade with his generous self. He now had admitted himself to the underground beer club...population three. Cloudy with a minimalist head that sisperses to ring of glass. Nascent lacing. Sweet malts then intense pine hops. moderate sparkly tingle of a dwindling finish. Hoorah says the Marine Platoon with resound and gore and guts and veins in their teeth. They pinned a medal on this beer and said "you’re our boy" I nice relaxing punch to my senses after a day dealing with pompous DC lobbyists without the proper paperwork. Too bad for them... Alchemist rocks.

Can. 1000 rakes!! Thanks to Tommy for this. Hazy golden woth frothy white head. Aroma is a tropical fruit bomb of mango and papaya mixed in with citrus undertones. Taste is bitter pine, grapefruit, and citrus. Loud bitter finish, with some lingering pine. Considering the ABV, the booze is very well hidden. This is one big IPA. Good stuff, huge in every way possible.

Can at 2016 Big Deck Tasting. This was a yummy fresh can - thanks Rejean! Hazy straw pour with a frothy head. Nice smooth tropical aroma with mixed citrus zest, some pine, booze is well hidden, moderate carbonation and full body, quite sharp but somehow still balanced, easy to drink and a nice dry, citrus finish.

plaugher (420) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2016
Pint can from the brewery. Pours a hazy golden colour with a finger of foamy white head with retention and much lacing, some floaties. Quite possibly the best smelling beer I have ever come in contact with; bold citrus nose with floral notes, pine; sharp bitterness up front, a bit juicy, lots of grapefruit. and a touch of pineapple on the back end. A little sticky on the palate. What a monster. Well worth waiting in line for.

Can @ Dangerous Bottleshares vol. ?. Darkish golden pour with a frothy head. Tons of dank hops, sticky, resin, piney, minty, juicy, orange zest and some grapefruit. Gewd!
