Thanks for a friend in DC who went up to Vermont to pick up this jem. Pours slightly hazy bright orange hue with a small white head and lite lacing. Nose is huge floral bomb-big crtra and Mosaic notes throughout with some slight pale husky grains but its well done. Flavors exhibit a very nice balance between the bright fresh hop onslaught and the pale malt husks. A pretty balanced beer for east coast ipa standards and it is VERY refreshing. I could drink this for hours and be very content with the complexity as well. A great IPA in my book even though its not and more C-hop "old school" style that i prefer. This is world class east coast IPA. DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2017
Fresh can (less than two weeks old). Beautiful juicy nose of fresh pink grapefruit, dank garlic & onion, tangelo and a faint herbal blend. Pours ultra cloudy light orange with a boatload of suspended particles floating in the snifter. Super citric acid taste with almost too much grapefruit flavor and orange pulp. I dig the juiciness but I think I prefer Heady Topper’s piney tones more. MrTipple (4968) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2017

A deliciously fruity aroma, with amazingly fresh hop character. The fruit and hop flavour is incredibly intense, an it is also amazingly easy to drink for its abv . Incredible .

Didn’t expect to roll in and find some of this hops caviar still chillin in the fridge like last weeks leftovers. Wonderful stuff. Pours hazy golden with good head, though thats looking at the guys next to me at Churchkey who ordered this since I followed proper instructions and drank from the can. Mango, passion fruit and green onion. A little almond amaretto. Bitter finish with a hint of hoppy sweetness. ken1 (2004) - DENMARK - APR 12, 2017
Aroma: Fruity hops with citrus and malty notes.

Can at home. Semi-hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Notes of citrus, unripe tropical fruit, light onion, herbal hops, sugar and alcohol. Pretty good. JBell14 (99) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2017
Hazy orange in color with a citrus aroma. Hints of mango amongst the cites flavor. I agree with the can, an abundance of hoppy goodness

Got in a BIF from Roguer. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy medium golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, red grapefruit, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berries, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/fruity/earthy hop and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, red grapefruit, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berries, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/grassy/citrus peel/peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, red grapefruit, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, berries, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/fruity/earthy hop and moderate pale malt flavors; with an amazing malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from lingering bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/creamy/sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy mouthfeel that is insane. Perfectly balanced. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an amazing IPA! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/fruity/earthy hop and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and pretty refreshing to drink. Super dank and fairly juicy on hops; just enough malt for bitter balance, with minimal residual sweetness. One of the smoothest IPAs I’ve ever drank. It gets quite resinous/drying through the glass; but still remains very crisp, drinkable, and never astringent. A really delicious and highly impressive offering all around.
