Big thanks to the Missus for picking this up. Batch #018. Powerful aroma of pine and citrus hops with a little herbal-ness too. Malt balances it well. Dry finish which Iím still thinking about what I though of it. Quite good. Serving: Bottle

Can at twin anchors. Really big foamy head. Nice coloration yellow with lots of carbonation. Awesome hop nose. The flavor is excellent. Lots of citrus hop with no aftertaste. Just a great double ipa.

onceblind (5915) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Cloudy gold with a thin white cap. Clean bright leafy and fresh hop aromas, a touch of pine, and a bright touch of melon. Big balanced flavor with some leafy hop resins, light pine, a touch of grapefruit rind and finishing with fresh leafy wet hops with lots of earthy dank bitterness, but still somehow balanced with crackery pale malt tones throughout.

daje (2765) - NORWAY - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle. Clear copper body with a lasting white head. Aroma of fruity hops, fresh and juicy, light sweet taste with peach and pineapple. Crisp bitter finish, very fresh for the strength. Could easily have more of this.

mambossa (150) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2015
1 pint can to snifter, purchased from Whole Foods on E. Grand in Chicago, canned on 9/16/15. Bright and clear sunny gold pour with nice soapy head. Juicy nose of lemon, ripe peach & mango, booze, green apple, grapefruit, lightly bready malt and a leafy earthiness. Flavor is crisp and clear for a double, shiny floral notes, lemony, enjoyable tingling bitterness, foliage-earthy aspect for dimension,smooth body, low carbonation. A solid flagship brew to have. Glad I got the chance to try.

bellco33 (511) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Pours slightly hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus zest, mango, pineapple, and tropical fruits. Taste is more of the same, a bit sweet and a strong but not off-putting hop bite. Medium body, medium carbonation, nice Double IPA.

(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 thatís bitter without being offensive to a non-hophead, medium body, dry but oily at the same time. Very impressive DIPA.

TattooJack (326) - 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.
