Hazy amber/gold pour. Aroma and taste of mandarin orange, pine resin, grapefruit, lemongrass, slightly dank, earthy, and a honey-like sweetness in the finish - all the things you used to love about Hopslam. Medium body. Right up there with the best of New England.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium sized, light tan head with fair retention and nice lacing. Murky, orange hued brew. Nose is juicy citrus lightly earthy, perfumey and a hint danky. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation that seems almost creamy on the palate. Citrus and flowery flavors, touch of honey dew and bubble gum. Dry, oily finish with a tame bite. Juicy stuff! ABV well hidden. Thanks Adrian!

Draft at Tilt Arcade in Burlington. Pours a murky golden orange color with an off white head. Aroma is outstanding! Juicy oranges and fleshy fruit hops. Flavor is a bit more on the bitter end, which overtakes the hop character just a bit, but still tasty. Overall an excellent imperial IPA!

16oz can into a glass. This is phenomenal. Cascades of sweet nectar all over the taste and aroma. So well balanced, so flavorful of hops, pine, resin, honey, fruit, wow. Citra shines brightly, yet the other insertion of hops are wonderful as well. This is what beer should be. I should have bought more. Just awesome. Love this.

Where: A gift enjoyed at a tasting event, thanks Maxbier and dlovell2. Appearance: Pours a deep, dark hazy orange, with resin and a big fluffy head. Aroma: Filled with notes of citrus and pine, and also grapefruit and tangerine. Taste: Perfect balance of sweet and bitter, with the citrus flavors and bitter resin, with lots of grapefruit and mango, and melon. Palate: Very light and fluffy, melts on your tongue. Overall: Powerful and top notch.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Can. 7 more in the fridge. Drinking straight from the can, after what Heady told me. Really, I donít have appropriate glassware anyway. Aroma is purely piney, resinous hops. Amazing aroma. Maybe a 10. Flavor is a perfectly balanced barrage of piney hops. So damn smooth. Not sure there is any malt in this, and I donít care. Perhaps the crown jewel of my 2015 Heady/SoS/2nd Fiddle haul. Delectable.

Can (about five weeks old). Pours a very hazy orange (a reddish hue at the center of the glass, fading to a pale orange at the edges). Aromas of citrus and tropical fruit abound upon pouring; more caramel malt is apparent after the head dies down. A wonderful fruity taste that eventually gives way to a medium to medium+ bitterness. Medium bodied; average carbonation; bitter finish. Well done.

Can. Hazy, beautiful orange brown pour with a nice white head. Spice, citrus, tropical fruit, pine. Full body but very easy to drink. Very well balance of sweetness, bitterness, alcohol and carbonation. Very well done

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 473ml can 3 days old from release and got in a trade. Aroma: lots of citrus: oranges, peaches, mandarin on a bread malty background. App: hazy copper brownish, small white head with good retention and great lacing. Taste and palate: light to medium body, light sweetness, soft to average carbonation, resinous, light long clean and dry bitter finish. Wow! Perfect palate! Overall: awesome! Love the aroma! Sad that the fruity nose fades away quickly but fortunately we get it back in mouth. Looks like we have a new or near new preferred IIPA. So glad I still have 3 left.
