Murky gold pour. Citrus pine hop aroma. Nice balanced floral taste. Smooth start to finish. A good ipa from a can, love the picture. Worth it to try again. On my top 10 ipa list

(can - 12 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a thick and puffy white head. Fruit is the first thing you get in the nose followed by a juicy citrus hop note. Big hops for sure. The fruit and citrus come through first in the flavor with a ton of hops following it up immediately. Well balanced throughout and leads to a bitter and hoppy finish. Amazing.

Growler shared. Pours a clear copper with a white head of foam. Tropical fruits and grass. Fruity and sweet and mildly bitter. Delicious.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 16oz can in a tulip glass. Pours dark amber color with thin off-white head. Citrusy hop aroma. Strong hop flavor, full body, but a dry, resiny finish that is not as pleasant as some other beers in this category. Edit: 2013 - 12oz can. This beer has changed so much. Every time I drink it I like it more and more. The hops are really strong, but they are smooth and bitter in a pleasant way. The flavor is so hoppy with a nice balance from the malts. Definitely a great beer. Edit: 2014 - Growler. Still one of the best beers in the state of CT, other than the other NEBCO beers.

Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. The glass is left coated with large rings and chunks of soapy lacing. Sweet citrus hop aroma with plenty of earthy notes and a subtle malt presence. Thereís some grassy pine needle and dank hop oils but the tropical/citrus fruits are most prominent in the nose. Lots of mango, grapefruit and citrus rind along with subtle biscuit. Medium bodied with a complex, flavorful hop profile that is nicely balanced by a sweet malt backbone. Bitter and sweet notes play off of each other with hints of dry and bitter pine needle/grass countered by notes of grapefruit and orange. The dry bitterness lasts throughout, even when the sweeter notes come into play and linger into a nice dry finish that leaves me thirsty for me. The malt backbone adds sweetness with notes of caramel, toffee and biscuit without getting in the way of the hops. Really well balanced and very flavorful with an excellently masked ABV making it dangerously drinkable. Iím impressed and ISO more!

very cloudy and golden with small white head and decent lacing, good citrus, floral and pine in nose. Malt does not get in the way but there is enough to make the beer bidimensional (hay/cereal). Body is medium. The 4 pack at 8.4 abv per would go down rather easily. Can only says 3 types of hop without specification. I think cascade and simcoe are two of them.

12oz can at Bruceís, thanks to the host himself. It pours a deep golden colour with a big white head. Deep fruity aroma with persimmon and peaches. Intensely hoppy. Taste is well balanced with dry bitter finish. Slight alcohol kik in the finish. Super hoppy and fruity. Full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very flavourful DIPA.

The beer pours a pale orange color with notes of amber. The beer forms a big, beautiful head of creamy white bubbles that last at about a fingerís width above the glass. In body, the beer is clean of particles, but very hazy and nearly opaque. On the nose, this beer is big and beautiful. Pine needles, pinecones and sweet mango juice mingle with dank and spicy weed, grapefruit rind, and soft alcohol notes. From the can, the nose is just about the same with just a touch more roundness coming from the citric scents and less of the alcohol burning the nostrils. On the tongue, the beer tastes hugely and properly bitter with resinous pine sap sticking to the tongue. Sweet hops, alcohol, and light bread malt mingle with citric acidity to make up the side show. The finish is dry with only slight sticky sweetness lingering. On the tongue, the beer is medium bodied, with fluffy carbonation that gives velvet softness to the mouthfeel. The mouth is left sticky with resin and bitter tingling, the palate is wrecked. From the can, the beer feels slightly crisper. In flavor, the beer tastes of resinous pine, sweet mango, light pineapple, grapefruit, and apricot. Distinct fresh hop flavors bubble on the tongue and feel sticky and very resinous. The taste has a strong backbone of medicinal bitters. Mmm. A bit sickly sweet, but not too much so. The cloying alcohol seems most present in the finish which also features dry cracker malts at the very base of my senses and strong piney hops. Overall, this is a damn good double IPA. It would be excellent on a late summer afternoon. Great bitters, great hop character, and a great effect on the tongue. The alcohol is just a tad too much, but other than that I like this beer a lot.
