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...!!!!!!!&

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2013 Best beer in CT. Great hoppy flavor with about 10%abv. Very hard to come by since they only distribute like once a month. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mild head retention, awesome fresh smell, beautiful burnt orange color, slight alcohol burn, huge hop flavor with a slight citrus finish but balanced perfectly to avoid too much bitterness from the hop profile.

Growler courtesy of Greg, thank you!! Pours a vibrant yellow-gold. Nice two finger frothy white head. Very fine lacing. Sexy beer. Aromas are just a bouquet of hops! Fresh cut flowers, peaches, light pine.....I could probably go on with adjectives, but really, this aroma is so inviting! Everything you would want out of a fresh DIPA. Taste is incredible!! Perfect balance of hops (that bouquet in the aroma is amplified in the taste) and malt sweetness. Wave after wave of hop flavors settled on my palate. The tropical fruit upfront...mango, peach, apricot, pear....the slight pine resin and sap across the middle...then some very moderately bitter hops into the finish. Slight grapefruit tartness but no real bite. Finishes perfectly dry and clean. A mild bread, earth and herbal backbone help keep the mouth feel/flavor balanced with all the hops going to work on your palate. Medium carbonation...nice and lively beer. This was one of the best, if not the best Double IPAís I have had. Severely under-rated beer, in my opinion.

This belongs right next to Heady Topper. Truly one of the greatest Double IPAs you can get. East Coast, rejoice, for we have Ghandi!

Pours a dark golden in color with nice two finger white head. OK retention with nice lacing. Strong pine aroma with lots of grapefruit and some tropical fruit. Lots of pine and citrus on the tongue with some dank. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Extremely smooth. Overall, an easy drinking, complex DIPA! I'll be seeking this one out again soon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can. I love this stuff when its fresh, fantastic aroma some citrus and pine, but its so crisp and fresh. Balanced palate with a hop bite in the finish that makes you want another sip. One of the easiest ABV DIPAís to drink, some nice floral notes on the outside edge. Would want to try this one outside of the can.

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.

A: Glowing orange/apricot color with pillowy head head that forms outstanding peaks and laces well.

N: Citrus and tropical fruit, lots of orange and mango present. There is a good bit of resin in the background that lets you know youíre in for a bitter punch.

T: Right up front, there is a big punch of grapefruit and lemon zest that makes way to a dank, resinous hop bite balanced by a fairly present malt backbone (caramel, a touch of coffee). I get pepper, papaya, and passionfruit notes in there as well. Has a distinctly fresh taste.

O: World-class example of an IPA, one that remains drinkable while still packing a big punch. Stellar.

Aroma:Sweet and hoppy. The sweetness is like cotton candy. The hops come across as lemony. In fact, itís like Ferarra Pan lemonhead candy. Appearance:Honey colored, big white fluffy head. Taste:This beer is extremely hoppy on first sip. After the initial hop hit, I can start to differentiate some apricot flavors. In the midtaste, the underlying malty sweetness also comes through, and itís almost too sweet. The flavors just kind of fade pleasantly thru the aftertaste. Palate:Medium body, high carbonation. The carbonation fizzes nicely even through the aftertaste. Overall:I really enjoyed this DIPA, tons of hops, lots of malt flavor. Plus, the artwork on the can is fantastic!
