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

Pour from a can is a nice hazy golden amber with a white head. Aroma is a little piny and floral but nothing too amazing. Taste is smooth with little bits of pine and floral but nothing too overpowering. Leaves a nice dry bitterness at the end.

Poured into a snifter. Pours hazy gold orange with a rocky light off white head. Aroma is quick to bring fresh grass to the nose. Taste is grassy at first but tropical fruit, like tender mandarins, follow. Finish is dry and bitter on the tongue.

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 IPA’s 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 DIPA’s 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 can’t find enough to go around.
