Bottle (dated 1/21/14) poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy orange/peach color with half a finger of off-white head. Decent lacing. Aromas of honey, citrus, tropical fruit, floral, dank. Tasting notes of citrus, tropical fruit, pine/resin, floral notes, big hops, honey towards the back. Slight booze on the finish. Medium body with a dry finish.

Put honey in it and i’m sold. I hear through the grapevine that "hype"slam isn’t as good anymore. Those folks in the grapevine can go suck an egg. Slam!

This is an average beer. Muddled hop flavor. Bitterness without floral aromatics. I have a feeling that if people drank this one in a blind taste test they would rate it a full point lower. Reputation beer.

12 oz bottle. Wow. Pours a slightly hazy amber/orange. Floral hops dominate the aroma distinct notes of honey. You can smell just a hint of alcohol. Tastes incredibly bitter at first. The malt backbone is appreciated later as well as the honey. You can taste the alcohol but barely and not in a bad way. Outstanding Imperial IPA.

Pours a golden orange color with a half finger white head. Aroma is nice. Grapefruit, Pine, Sweet malts, slight caramel, dank and resinous....Simcoe! Taste is very nice. You get that sweetness from the honey which helps hide the alcohol. Nice grapefruit that leads to a bready malt sweetness and finishes moderately bitter with some pine. Lingers slightly, enticing the next sip. Sticky on the lips. Body is medium to medium full.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Bottle from Lazy Dog. Transparent brown with white head. Aroma of hops. Taste of hops and citrus fruits with slight carbonation. Bitter hops aftertaste. A really delicious hoppy beer.

This is a very good DIPA. I think the limited production from a well respected brewery drives its price/demand and may influence its rating. Still, I?m enjoying it.

Ridiculous. Had a few years back but wildly better. Please start NJ distribution before next year release.

Trade. (Thanks STLWill). Härlig humle i doften. Blommig och nyans av tallbarr. Ganska tung beska men av lite annorlunda karaktär. Har en fantastiskt balanserad sötma som inte är det minsta jobbig eller stickig, som så ofta med US-dipa annars. (Kanske för att den är hyfsat färsk?) flaskad 27/12, dricks 20/2.
