The perfect beer. Does not get better than this. Superb IPA with a amazing citrus floral aroma. If you ever take a trip to Detroit, take the short trip north to warren and try one.

Very well balanced, strong and a little sweet, very hoppy. This is one of my favorite IPAs.

By far one of the better beers I have had. Not much of a beer drinker but when it tastes like kuhnhenn, I will soon be a beer drinker

Growler this time. But I’ve turned a shit ton of this amazing beer into urine historically - maaan I miss being inside of Kuhnhenn distro… : ( Anyway, another big thanks to Adam. ありがとう！ Aroma is a hop holocaust. Hint of rice (I’m probably lying, though). Nice floral notes. Booze. And taste follows. Nice drying finish, not too much residual sweetness. One of my very favorites. This & Fluffer. Man, Fluffer…*sigh*

I can see why this beer is as popular as it is. I can tell you that right before I even type up my review.
Appearance: A standard yellow color. Really no head to speak of, and some patchy lacing. Looks pretty good. Knowing what it contains is even MORE exciting... >:)
Smell: Mm. Sweet and delicious. No rice in the aroma whatsoever, just a lot of super fruity, bright hops.
Taste: Identical to the smell... but in taste form. 9.5%? Who the hell would guess that. No warmth, no taste, it’s not there at all, at least not for me. Fruity hops with floral notes there as well. Surprisingly really not bitter, which I wasn’t expecting. Impeccable balance. The feel is great as well ... super refreshing, no harsh carbonation, and dangerously easy drinking.
Basically, I can see why this beer has won so many awards. Of the flight I got, this is definitely my favorite of the six. Outstanding beer ... I’ll get a pint next time I see this beer around. Awesome stuff .. a must try.

HUGE citrus!!!! grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, lime, and lemon! this is a citrus lovers wet dream! very little malt to back the hoppy onslaught! if you love hops, and are not looking for balance, this is your beer!

Thanks to tectactoe originally for letting me in on this one. One of the best DIPAs out there. Such a intricate and original flavor. First time I went to Kuhnhenn I had to get a growler of this one. A must try.

Draft pint at the brewpub. What a beauty ... Light orange and pillowy. Beautifully hoppy and citric, quite full-bodied. Big beer that manages to be light in character, too, and deceptively strong. Exceptional. (#3818, 1/25/2010)

The taste of malt blends with the ever present citrus undertones The hops are so distinct but yet present an overall balance with the sugars- and the complex fruit balances any caramel which could predominate. Remarkably smooth and creamy for such an intensely hopped beer . A true awakening, and might I say "reward" for the palate.

Awesome! Little yellow, very clear brew. Fresh from brewery in growler. Grapefruit citrusy bitterness, dry after taste. Light lacing. Very well done on hiding the alcohol content. Top 3 ipa I’ve ever had.
