4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz can from New Seasons Market in Hillsboro, OR. Surprising light in color. Aroma is floral, with strong hints of citrus and tropical fruits. It kind of reminds me of limoncello or Lemonheads candy. Mouthfeel is crisp, with a long, slightly bitter finish. Not a lot of residual sugars from the malt, which allows the hops to make a much brighter appearance. I have a very hard time believing that this is 10% ABV. Strange beer, but certainly delicious.

Poured from a 12oz can. Poured a fairly light and very cloudy amber. Aroma did not give off much hints as what was going to happen. Taste was surprisingly sweet, hoppy, and flavorful. I got a piney, yet sweet with hints of vanilla and oak flavor. The bitter aftertaste lasts all day, but is balanced very well!

Clear golden. Awesome strong and ballanced brew. Aroma, same as taste - fruity, hopy, well ballanced with nice bitterness, also ABV is high and manly. Liked it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014/08/24 - Pours a translucent orange-amber colour with a thick, foamy white head that quickly reduces to a lingering surface film. Lots of lacing. Aroma is sweet tropical fruits, citrus, honey and mild pine. Taste follows nose; pineapple, tropical fruits, citrus rind, honey, mild pine and moderately spicy hops. Body is medium to thick and sticky with smooth carbonation and a finish that is both juicy and bitter. Really enjoyed the tropical fruits in this DIPA.

Not bad for the beer in a can. Sweet malty and hoppy this is a perfect beer for a sunny afternoon. Not too light but not too dark either.

Exceptional IPA. Like crazy delicious. The aroma is just massive pineapple and soft tropical fruits. A little sweetness from the malts. Taste is just insanely good. Tons of pineapple right at the front of the tongue followed by more soft fruit and massive hop bitterness. A little sweetness from the malt but a tropical forward imperial IPA. Super fresh. I’ve had it out of the can and in the can and personally I think it’s better in the can. It keeps all the hop oils and really makes it just punch you in the face. So good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a can at ALEhouse, RIga. Pours hazy orange, something how imperial IPA’s should look like. Aroma is fruity, melons, a bit of skunky hops, tropical fruits. dragon-fruit? Taste is also quite sweet and very fruity. Doesn’t really reveal the high alcohol content that it actually has. Bitterness is there and it stays - but as it is well balanced with a strong body, it doesn’t really feeI too much. I started my evening with this beer, not sure how to go on as the taste is quite intense and next beers would probably taste like water... Good brew that embodies a classical American DIPA for me.

A double at its finest! This beer presents with a soft and billowy head topping a hazy and light gold brew. The lacing is thick, in sheets on the sides of the glass. It is three months old and the age shows, but the quality comes through. I can tell this is not totally fresh, but the taste is still quite hoppy, and the citrus is still quite pungent without being acidic or astringent. Berry warmness infiltrates the grassy aroma and lays out over the back of my tongue. The body is average, a little sticky and very DIPA. If you know what I mean.
Loving this, but really looking forward to a fresher version. Will be looking for it again!
