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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Can from Nick thanks! From the can. Aroma of dank hops, tropical fruit, and malt sweetness. Taste is dank, bitter, malt and alcohol not pronounced. Easy drinking for a double. Kinda like headyís little bro.

Draft at Birch Hill Tavern. Pours hazy apricot color with pretty, large-bubbled head. Aroma is very pleasant with dank hops, light tropical fruit, and citrus peel--nothing out of the ordinary but fresh and juicy and smellable. Taste is much drier and aggressive, in the direction of Heady in terms of pine and sweet malts but dialed back, with sweet orange and mango. Very drinkable for the ABV. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Can (12oz) c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a slightly hazy gold with some sediment and a large long-lasting frothy white head. Lacing on the glass. Really nice aroma of citrus hops & piney hops, a bit resiny as well and with tropical fruit. Flavour is also pleasant, lots of citrusy and fruity hops, nice and easy to drink a as well for a DIPA. Alcohol is well hidden. Long bitter finish. Medium bodied. A well made, enjoyable DIPA, well done.

fletchfighters (1063) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2014
In a can Thanks to Owen Hazy orange apricot color. Nice tight white head. Nose is candied citrus, that changes to dank candied pine and herbs. Taste is quite vegital and dank. Ver y bitter and aggressive with hints of sweetness. Easy to drink for the large amount of dankness in this. Drinks lower than what it is. Very good DIPA
