3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml can from bobbypaulson.Ruby tinged amber with an off white head that fades to a film, yet will come back with a slight twirl of the glass. Fresh pine hops, peach, apricot; Moderate carbonation, full body, bitterness that grows throughout, very smooth without being "abrasive" (although when cold was slightly harsh), becomes slightly sweet along with a malty bitterness towards the end

Poured from tall boy can into a tulip. Pours dark orange with a bit of creamy beige head. Aroma is a bit of citrus and hops. This reminds me a bit of Expo and Hopslam, maybe just not as sweet or rich.

16 oz can shared at Justinís house. Pours a nice orangy amber hue. Little to no foam. Aroma is sharp of pine with citrus hints. Taste is tangy, and the citrus and pine have changed places. Really surprisingly subtle and delicious. Somewhat bitter grapefruit-rind oddness in the mid to late palate. Still, excellent stuff. The ABV is well hidden though and itís a very impressive brew.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
16 oz can into a shaped pint glass. Canned on 1/23/2012, exactly one month old. Huge thanks to ottodyer for throwing this in as an extra!
A - Dark amber body with a massive fluffy off-white head. Looks great.
S - Loads of tropical fruits with a piney finish. Love the mango and papaya notes.
T - Same as the nose, mango and papaya followed by a piney bitter finish and some light caramel malts. The bitterness is lasting but not overpowering. Mouth feel is a bit light but carbonation is spot on and the high alcohol isnít noticeable.
O - One of my favorite DIPAís. Surly knows how to make a damn good hoppy beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Clear dark orange body, quickly dissapating head. Great, fruity aroma, very hoppy and lively. Taste is astringent hoppily dry, in a good way. Earthy, robust malts. Next to this being a highly pleasant beer it is also safe to consume in nearly every circumstance: with a can like this people will be thinking youíre knocking down a can of energy drink. Thankfully, that wonít be the case...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium pretty vast white head on top of a clear darker orange colored beer.
Smell loats of hops and fresh fruit, peach, pine, cactus, pine apple, citrus, resin, somelight light sweet and light sweaty.
Taste is a good mix of hops (!) and itís good bitter and less fruity character and the grains like barley (malts).
A good mix of hops; citrus, bitter, floral and fruit; abricot, pine, light grapefruit, peach, light barley malted sweaty, good balanced bitterness.
The peach seems to come out even better after a while. Very nice (peach) hop bitterness.
Nice bitter hop fruity aftertaste with a light dry touch to it.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel (almost silky), full body and a creamy texture.
Very interesting brew, love to buy this shit in cans in your local supermarket! What a treat!
Warming, fresh and well balanced.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear medium amber pour with thin light cream colored head. Big floral and pine hop aroma. Taste is citrus and pine with some lighter sweet malt notes. Nice dry bitter finish. Somewhat light mouthfeel with light carbonation. A "hop bomb" in my book, but the bitterness is nicely balanced with the malts making it very easy drinking despite the ABV. A definite winner.
