UPDATED: JAN 14, 2016 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!
Also have had a growler from the brewery. Great stuff. No change with the new name.

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.

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...!!!!!!!&
