Smells awesomely sweet and malty with lots of citrus aroma. Straw-orange color and pours with a very lively, foamy head. Finishes with a lingering bitterness from the heavy hopping. Flavors of orange, lemon, pine, citra hops, and black pepper. If you love sweet hoppy beers, you’ll love this.

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.

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

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.

dmac (4831) - 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 (1004) - 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!
