Can: Poured a hazy orange with white head. Aroma is tropical fruit hops. Taste is juicy hop bomb that never stops, but eases up just enough in the finish.

Sampled at Mechazillaís epic insanity tasting session. Good stuff as expected, very Vermont-style, rich hoppiness, citrus and weed with a minty edge, maybe a tad boozy on the end. Not too sure how fresh it was but still a great treat.

Iíve been lucky enough to have many, many cans of this over the years. Itís excellent. Big hop aroma that melds with a malt body thatís definitely sweeter than the average DIPA. But rather than being cloying, the sweetness amplifies the hop aroma and makes one heck of a DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy dull orange gold color, frothy beige-white head. Grapefruit, melon, orange, and floral aromas. Rather blander and more bitter taste in comparison. Medium body, perfect amount of carb, and a little oily. Long astringent and bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky golden yellow from the can with bubbly white head. Aroma of big resinous Simcoe hop notes, grassy and citrus. Taste is big on the hop end too with a malty balance, booze well hidden though. Another really good new England IPA, that also looks like it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can shared at Mechazilla event. Pours a cloudy, golden tangerine with a finger of creamy foam. Big, dank resiny nose with lemon, sudachi and green pineapple. Well-balanced on the palate. Body feels uber light and dangerously drinkable. Dry finish with light pepper and zest. One of the better DIPAís I have had.

Big lime grapefruit and oranges in the nose. Dirty cloudy and lovely as hell. Smooth biscuity mouth with lots of lime and grapefruit and biscuity. So well balanced. A bit boozy in the finish which distracts a but otherwise such a great beer.
