Can shared by Ari, thanks! Pours a clear deep amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a ton of hops with notes of pine, onion, and a bit of grapefruit backed by sweet grains. Flavor begins with sweet grains but quickly becomes hoppy with onions, pine and sweet grapefruit in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice, coppery-orange color with small, quickly dissipating head. Strong floral-citrus aromas. Flavor is quite bitter with strong citrus notes and a real hop bite. Finish is quite bitter. This is a very good double IPA--not the best I’ve tried, but right up there.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Didnt think I would have a surly brew I enjoyed more than Furious, however this one takes the cake! For anyone who loves a bitter hoppy beer this is the epitome of delicious beer, great color, aroma, taste, and mouthfeel. Had this beer on tap at the White Horse in St. Cloud MN, great bar with excellent food and beer, stop in if visiting St. Cloud and want a great place to hangout.

Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a slightly cloudy deep copper color with a smallish off white head that shows moderate retention and lace. Smells of hops, tastes like em too. Lots of pine and citrus and floral hops with a faint bit of bready malt sulking deep in a dark corner. A bit of malt breaks through in the flavor but is quickly sent to its room by the onslaught of pine and citrus. Medium body and level of carbonation with a slick resinous almost sticky mouthfeel. Damn good beer right here, although I don’t find it horribly abrasive as advertised. Then again I’ve spent the last few years building up an immunity to Iocane powder, I mean lupulin.

473ml can. Canned on 12/01/11.
The first thing you notice when you pour it is not the color but the smell, you kinda wanna sing to yourself a happy tune.
It pours a copperish color with a frothy white head.
The smell is awesome. Tons and tons of mango, persimmon, papaya all wrapped up in a nice sugar cane like sweetness.
The flavor follows. Sweet and tropical with a nice piney bitterness on the back end.
Perhaps a bit sweet but a nice tropical IPA, surely not abrasive, a bit cloying, but otherwise easy to drink.

Pours a dark amber color and has a thin frothy head. Has a huge hop scent on the nose and quite the bitter kick in taste. I enjoy this one a lot more than the Furious.

16oz can from Skyview, thanks! You know it’s going to be good when you can smell the grapefruit before the moment you open the can when you’re not even attempting to smell a damn thing! Amber with a medium beige receding head and minor lacing. Aroma is a citrus and grapefruit bomb with some resinous undertones. Plenty of malt, tropical fruits, caramel. Taste is gigantic and bold with grapefruit, citrus, mango and a large malt bill with caramel and a touch of bready malt. Pithy and boozy with high bitterness – by no means a session ale but this session it’s just what the doctor ordered!
