Draught@The Sunset Grill, Boston. Lovely hoppy aroma, quite flowery. Fruity hop characters in the flavour: lychee, grapefruit. Some light;y caramely malt notes, but its more a bout the hops, piney, sappy.

I love that they put it into a can. And it’s darker than the Midnight Sun Artic Devil that we had before--that’s classic. Rich brown/red with a vivid head. Gentle bitter effect with a rich maltiness and sweetness. Hoppy in appropriate balance.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the HDG. Aroma very citric and crisp. Arrived to me a nice amber with a nice foamy head. The flavor was just hoppy good, citric and piney just loads of em. A light sweet malt is also present. Palate really makes you pucker and like it. Overall, OB just gives it to you straight. I love it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can.This is a hugely citrusy hoppy beer.
There is a underlying note of fruity malts but man-oh-man this is hoppy. Bitter and deliscious on the tongue.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can (also on tap at the brickstore pub in Decatur GA.). Freakin awesome DIPA- and a great example of how a canned beer can be every bit as good or better than a bottled beer. Pours a deep ruby amber- clear soft carbonation, and a fluffy off white head and kickass lace. Aroma is citrusy american hops, sweet pungent, sticky, piney, and grapefruit- as it warms a slight hint of alcohol becomes present. Sticky sweet caramel malts, but dominated by nice piney hops with citrus and mango-like hops. A bit of an alcohol kick, and very bitter overall. Fantastic DIPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deep copper appearance with huge foamy head. A very sweet aroma with notes of honey and nut. The aroma is relaxing. The taste is nutty, bitter, with a touch of cloves. Deep penetrating Warmth. Packs a big punch, for something out of a little can, once fully consumed.

What a beautiful sight it was to see this wonderfully dark amber beer flow from a can. One advantage of the can is the aroma that is retained inside the can. It smells great upon the initial "crack" and the taste is a wonderfully hoppy, delicious beer that I could drink day in, day out. A great double IPA that I plan on having again and again.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 HAD THIS ON MY 30TH BIRTHDAY!!!
I never thought that in my entire existence I would find a dark amber beer in a can. What a surprise. Very nice dry hopped red. Strong hop aroma. Medium to Heavy body. Very nice bitterness. not very strong. Bitterness is very present but not long. Overall great!
