(16oz can) clearish medium gold, fine white bubbles that last the drinking session. Nose of honey, huge tropical fruit, citrus zest, very lightly bitter grapefruit, bursts with hop aroma. The taste is even more intense, super impressive honey matches with the bittering hops. Honeydew, juicy tropical fruit, pineapple, bitter orange, citrus zest. Impressive palate linger that’s bitter without being offensive to a non-hophead, medium body, dry but oily at the same time. Very impressive DIPA.

TattooJack (427) - Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Poured from the 4-pack of tall boy cans, cloudy dark amber with about a finger and a half of white collar. Great contrasts: Tropical and gritty, juicy and dry, sweet and bitter, strong without tasting so. I would compare it to being punched in the face...while you are sleeping....by a flavor ninja.

16 ounce can. Thanks Al. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical, pine, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, pineapple, tropical, pine, and caramel malt. Big and bold. Delicious.

Can from Bursprak. Thanks buddy! Light hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is very dank, citra, lots of fresh citrus, orange peel, lemon zest, hops, light herbal. Taste is peachy, dank, hops, citrussy, grassy, lingering hop bitterness. Damn, this is fresh!

dmac (5159) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Tallboy can from Robert K. Poured a chil hazed bright yellow gold with an average sized frothy bright white head. Aroma is dank hops, rotting citrus, tropical fruit rinds, sugary orange marmalade on top of medium toast. Bigger body with some lingering heat and an almost chewy mouthfeel that finishes dry and leaves a long lasting aftertaste. Flavor is great, older grapefruit, tangerine, lime, dry toast crusts, tropical fruit skins, dank hops, wet pine needles and dough. Great beer.

Vestergaard (1385) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2015
Can thanks to Bursprak. Pours a clear golden with a smooth, big, white head. Aroma is really hoppy and fruity. Pineapple, citrus, grape fruit peel, lime juice, hop juice, citra. Pretty little and pale malt presence. Taste is pineapple-sweet and overall very fresh fruity with a nice, bitter finish. Really good and fresh!

Ericular (930) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours a murky pale gold with lasting ring of head and fine-grained lacing. Aroma is very nice, with berries and tropical fruits, bright and sweet overall. Taste is sweet caramel up front, staying fresh as it dries in the middle, bringing some pine resin and some assertive bitterness. Dry and sticky finish, with the ABV becoming more evident as it gets heavier in the end. Ratebeer says 9%, this can says 8%... overall this is a strong, full, hoppy DIPA.

myrda (104) - - AUG 16, 2015
Wow, plein de houblon au nez, bouquet immensément complexe. Fruit de la passion, ananas, pêche, zeste d’oranges... Tout aussi aromatique en bouche. Houblons peut-être un peu affaiblis par le temps, mais tout aussi riche. Entrée de bouche plutôt fruitée, puis malté rappelant le sucre d’orge suivi d’un arrière goût plein d’amertume qui remplie le palais.
