Poured out of a can into a snifter. Aroma Bubblegum, pineapple, dank fresh and citrusy hops. Appearance Dark gold, tinges of orange and amber. Opaque. Thin creamy white head quickly dissipates; lacing lasts on the side of the glass. Low to moderate carbonation. Flavor Hop bitterness and flavors lead the way. As is not uncommon in highly-hopped beers, it is difficult to detect a distinguishable malt flavor, although itís no doubt there due to a quick venture into sweet flavors before once again being pelted with hop flavors and bitterness, which returns at the end and leaves a lasting impression in the jowls. Despite this being a double IPA, the flavors feel well-placed (not overly hoppy while still having a great hop presence, if that makes any sense.) Mouthfeel Mostly medium-bodied, although the hop bitterness makes it feel a bit more full. Smoothly slips over the tongue. Overall Impression Itís a great double IPA. Hits its marks on aroma, flavor and mouthfeel. Very drinkable, and the 8.8% is hidden well up front. If I was a douche bag (Iíd like to think Iím not), Iíd dock it for being opaque. Itíd be nice for the head to stay around a bit and to have a bit more carbonation to continue surfacing the nice array of hop aromas throughout the glass.

Pour into Hopslam snifter. Hazy gold with a thick light head that quickly dissipates. Very strong floral hop aroma. Taste doesn't follow through though. Good, not great. Very carbonated mouthfeel

Pours a beautifully hazy/cloudy light amber color with just a small amount of white foamy head that disappears quickly but leaves behind some nice sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is subtle but excellent - very nice fruity notes (maybe some citrus & banana?) along with a typical piney/resiny hoppiness. The flavor is a blast of hoppy bitterness that blows up your palate right away. Iíd say its medium sweetness, heavy bitterness with just a hint of sour in the finish. Good beer and something I would definitely drink again.

Golden amber with a bit of a haze and a clingy foam. Super fruity on the nose, citrus tartness and some acetone. Smooth as hell this puppy. Long bitterness bursts out of the initial light sweetness begging you to take another swig. Crisp and tingly.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. White head with good retention recedes to hug rim leaving spotted sheets. Grapefruit and resin aromas. Well balanced with upfront sweet caramel and marshmallow turning to a lasting grapefruit and pine finish. Finish becomes a bit sour after a while docking a few points.

12oz can, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Big juicy, spice resin, pine, floral and coconut aroma. Vibrant and fresh. It has that wonderful emergent bready, spiced warm grapefruit character. Flavors are rich and dense. Warmingly alcoholic, spicy, fruity, and intensely fresh tasting. Some gin and juniper. It edges a little sweet, but Iím really digging the quality thatís coming out of the can. Iíve really been craving a strong Double IPA, but refuse to buy anything thatís been sitting on the shelf for god knows how long. Fortunately, this just came in and has the protection of the can to keep it kicking. Good move, New England.

12oz can into a tulip...Dark gold pout with lots of head that has incredible retention but no lacing at all. the beer itself is not appealing, not drinkable looking...The aroma is light for a dipa but really nice. The almost perfect amount of pine hops and alcohol, not at all strong but gives off what you are looking for in a dipa. Not a ton going on complexity wise, but wets my palate...The taste is a touch down, the hops arenít as smooth comes off a little more harsh. again its a little bit of a one noter. Wish more was going on...The feel is pretty nice very sticky and this is an easy drinker. A lighter and smooth dipa, but nothing that wows you. Worth trying if your around it

Generously shared while waiting in line for GTMW tickets - Pours hazy golden with a thin off-white head. Gassy, herbal and bitter on the nose--fresh and pungent. Taste is mango, herbal and grassy hops, sweet malt, with a light, grassy finish and a touch of lemongrass. Smooth and not over-the-top in hoppiness. Awesome.

16oz can split with the Madison crew while waiting for tickets to the GTMW. Hazy, strawlike yellow-gold. Thin white head. Nice grapefruit aroma, very fresh. Very clean as well, hop forward. Drinkable, pleasant. Well done!
