This belongs right next to Heady Topper. Truly one of the greatest Double IPAs you can get. East Coast, rejoice, for we have Ghandi!

Can from Tom L. Thanks, man. Pours clear dark yellow others nice small bubbles in the foam. Aroma is tropical fruits and mild resinous pine. First sip is similar with sweet caramel and crystal malt. Finish is clean with a soft hoppy flavors of mild bitter citrus peal.

bobaidan (508) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Had on tap. Pour is golden with a nice head. Aroma appeared to be mostly citrus, but was overpowered by other smells in the establishment. Light in body with lots of carbonation. Flavor is very happy, but not overly bitter. Floral and citrus dominate with a bit of malt sweetness, but not quite enough to balance perfectly.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Lightly hazy, amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, resin, sweeter honey, caramel malts, citrus, and light alcohol. Taste of citrus, pine resin, some caramel, spicy hop finish.

Finally rating this. Huge resiny dipa with tons of spruce and citrus rind. Bitter and sweet with caramel malts. Balanced in your traditional huge dipa of 5 years ago. Good beer.

DrSilverworm (6421) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2014
32oz growler tasted at Natifest. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Awesome big grassy hop aroma, light pine, grapefruit citrus. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light spiciness. Great moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light zest. Light sweet taste. More dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Awesome big assertive piney citrusy resiny IPA. My kind of stuff. Stand-out DIPA.

b3shine (5460) - Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Howler to taster at NatiFest (shared by John). Looks good; a very slightly hazy golden orange with foamy white head. Smells and tastes nice and hoppy with loads of citrus and a mildly sweet backbone. Pleasantly smooth on the palate. A good DIPA.

Chudwick (2147) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Growler thanks to a guy named John at NF14 - cat urine nose. Malty backbone. Solid but not original. Aftertaste is different though.

a terrific dipa with a bunch of hop funk and flavor; very drinkable, almost tasted like some of my favorite wet-hopped ipas, though apparently itís not.
