3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to a trader for giving me 2 of these in a trade. Enjoyed at 40 Degrees F in a wine glass.
A - Hazy burnt orange appearance. no head
S - Nice grapefruit and pine cone aroma. Very mild aroma, not too dominating. No dry hopping at all which is surprising for DIPA
T - Very explosive flavor! Loads of orange peel, grapefruit juice and pine needle pine resin but citrus is the dominating flavor. Very drinkable, not too bitter and quite an enjoyable beer sip after sip.
M - Medium body, nice carbonation. Very drinkable
O - This beer was surprising. First of all, Iíd call this a regular IPA. Itís not bitter, not boozy and very approachable. If only it came in bigger cans.

Can. The pour is light and hazy. The aroma is full of hops with a decent amount of pine. The taste is bitter, but not overpowering.

12oz can: Finally got a hold of one of these. This one pours a orange-tinged hazy darker golden color. There was a very small white head on it that doesnít linger or leave much lacing. Tons of hops in the nose of this one. Lots of resinous pine, and some citrus. Not much else making it past. Taste is very good. Bitter, but some residual sweetness bubbling up. Pine, biscuit, citrus, some caramel malts. Just a touch over medium bodied. Very Nice!

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
