4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a "chunky" light orange hue...very reminiscent of its northeast cousin The Alchemistís Heady Topper.
The nose belies itís hop bomb flavors. I admit Iím a bigger fan of West Coast style IPAs, but this brew is an amazing lesson on how the best East Coast IPAs got their reputation.

Pours an ultra murk golden orange, tons of orange and bitter tasting hops, grapefruit, and oniony heat as it warmed. A little too boozey, with a huge hop bite. Pretty nice ipa but maybe a little too big.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can thanks to ILOVESTOUTS, enjoyed in a Hill Farmstead stem.
Pour: Hazy yellow orange, with a finger and half of white, fizzy head. Hangs around as a rim, and leaves okay lacing.
Smell: Big pine and citrus up front, along with some light honey and bready sweetness. Finishes with zesty citrus and light pine.
Taste: The following of the nose Iíve had yet. Clean citrus, grapefruit, and pine, plus a nice white pepper. Sweetness is characterized but a light honey. Finishes with a lightly bitter pine.
Mouthfeel: Very drinkable, and super refreshing. Bitterness isnít overpowering.
Overal: This beer definitely met my hopes. I loved it. I will definitely look forward to having it again.

Gandhi-Bot simply hits my sweet spot. The aroma is of citrus hops and it pours an amber color with a medium head. I simply canít find enough to go around.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazed golden with a smallish head. Some funk in the aroma with some fruit. Very nice aroma but the flavor falls a notch short of it. Grapefruit, pale malts. Tart. Nicely done.

Can shared by Dreadnaught33. Thanks Jonathan.
The beer is light orange and slightly hazy with a tick, white head. The aroma offers hops, spicy malt, onions/vegetables (in a positive way). Earthy may be the term for which I am searching. The aroma is superior to the flavor, though the flavor is certainly enjoyable. Great feel. Easy to drink. Orange zest with a tasty malt backbone. Could definitely throw back multiple cans of this. Recommended.
Serving type: can

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Loved it! Just perfect for a double. Pours a hazy Smokey orange. Smells friuty and floral. Goes in smooth with a strong bite that only a true ipa lover can understand. This is arguably the best ipa ever! This is the greatest double ipa ever made...!!!!!!!&

Can form recent canning. It is weaker than the shewolf i was drinking, thats for sure. Round taste, fruity and malt,y, not too much distinct hop flavors, the malt dominates. The finish is sharp and bitter which saves it to a point but this one isnít jivin with me.

Thanks to Bill for bringing this one over from the States for me.
Poured from a 12oz can into a tulip to an almost clear gold colour with a frothy white head that soon thinned.
Lots of floral and citrus hops on the nose allied to pine and a little grass.
Similar flavours on the palate more piney than the others and quite a bitter finish but a little sweet malts take the edge off this aspect and makes for a well balanced beer!
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation - spot on in fact!
A really tasty DIPA and would I would happily drink again!
