Pours a hazy golden orange with a rather quick diminishing 1 finger white head. Aromas of slight citrus and pine. Flavors are well balance of sweet and bitter. Hops in the aroma aren’t as there as I would have wanted. A nice ipa that lacks in aroma and mouthfeel.

Can in Breck with friends and family. Poured a golden orange with a small white head and a ton of floaters. Smell is tropical fruits, grapefruit, light pine, grass, and a hint of caramel. Taste is sweet fruits, tangerine, pine, and malt with a moderately bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Very bitter and somewhat unbalanced, but overall, a pretty good DIPA.

Can from a trade on BA. The old label seemed miles better, though this has a zine-like appeal on some level. Very attractive pour, moderately cloudy deep orange with a bright gleam at its core and a really wicked silky head. Nose is pretty heady, almost so much that it’s perfumey. Super sweet, and needs some bitters to cut the florals. Nice mouthfeel, perhaps a touch slick. And the taste, while very inviting and bright, could also use a bit more balance to the overwhelming juicy and sweet notes. More bitter please, but still fun.

An ugly light orange brew. Little to no head. Big chunky floaties in the glass. Light sweet-musty aromas. Flavor is sweet and citrusy. A little floral hoppiness. Drying finish. Flavors are very muddled. Rather dissapointing.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of piney hops, some tropical fruits, lemon, orange peel, some light caramel. Flavour the same. Full bodied, well balanced, bitter with a smooth mouth feel. Nice and dry.

Pale amber pour. Some haze and small amount of sediment at the bottom of the glass. Large floral, slightly juicy aroma. Orange. Taste is clean hops and bitterness. Bitterness is everywhere, but remains soft. Light orange and floral hops come out in the back. Malt is pretty subdued. Some candy sweetness pops up, but is mostly hidden. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Tasty, but lacking complexity. Too big and bitter to be quaffable, but not quite big enough to be a snifter sipper. A little thin on the body as well. Might be better as a slightly dialed back 7% IPA. Very enjoyable and tasty, but not quite top tier.

Really good Double IPA. Great hops taste with nice notes of cirtis and pine. Very drinkable for a double IPA. Well done New England brewery

In short: A tasty, bitter, refreshing and fruity pale IPA of superior quality
How: A few cans from Ernesto987, consumed fresh a few days after purchase, thanks a lot Ernesto
The look: Cloudy orange body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: Nose is fresh fruity hops with apricots being the dominant fruity esters backed by other citrusy fruits and notes of pine tree. Taste has crisp honeyed malts and a whole lot of fresh fruity/citrusy hops (oranges, apricots, grapefruits, mangos…) and light pine-tree. Bitterness is sharp and of medium intensity. Balance is slightly towards the bitter hops. Tasty and refreshing hop-fix, very good. I wonder what happened to Gandhi? The dude seemed nice, he made one great movie and then I never heard from him again.

16oz can split with the Madison crew while waiting for tickets to the GTMW. Hazy, strawlike yellow-gold. Thin white head. Nice grapefruit aroma, very fresh. Very clean as well, hop forward. Drinkable, pleasant. Well done!

Drank a few ounces of this from courtesy of one of my buddies. Poured a medium-golden color with a white head. Aroma was a touch of grapefruit and pine, which translates pretty well in the flavor as well - a pretty good hop-heavy brew.
