UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Can picked up at cannery recently. Poured into a tulip for full experience. Orange body, 2 finger head that dissipates. Everything about this is simply outstanding. Aroma-out of this world, definitely the best smelling ipa I have had to date. Citrusy, hoppy and juicy. Amazingly easy drinking for the abv and ibus. Not bitter as one might expect. Perhaps the best thing about this is the mouthfeel, coats the palate with hoppy goodness as the can states. Everything is in harmony here, can see why this is so hyped. Definitely worth all the praise, wish I was a lot closer to VT so I could get this more often.

Drinking from the can because the can said so. Poured 25cl into a Boulevard tulip so I can judge the appearance and try it from a glass. A- Wheaty yellow, lots of floating particles, 1 finger thick white head. S- Very floral, sweet, a bit earthy. T- Dank hops, somewhat floral, citrus, bitter but ballanced by a light sweetness. M- Right consistency, a bit lumpy, could use a bit more carbonation. O- Looks like homebrew gone bad, but smells and tastes amazing. Only thing I would really change is to up the carbonation just a bit. Serving type: can

From can to glass. Definitely smooth for a double IPA. Sharp and citrusy hops dominate this brew. The drinkability does not suggest a considerable 8% abv. Great head. I wish I had tried this out of the can like it suggests.

KyotoLefty (9713) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 22, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012 Can on the RBSG bus. Great nose: tropical fruit, peaches and mango. Golden pastel color. Estery, bready flavor with honey malts. Prockly carbonation is a bit much. Peppery hop finish and noticeable alcohol. Well bitter. Nose is great, flavor much less exceptional than expected, though good.
Second time was from the can at Manhattan Pizza in Burlington. Nose was less available, but the resinous, citrus hops were lovely.

Pint sized can from which I will drink(as instructed). Ive never sniffed the inside of a can before. This one smells like fresh pine needles and lemon zest. Taste is full of flavor and pretty balanced for the style. Tart citrus hops hit you first followed by juniper. Slubtly sweet pale malt presents itself mid palate and bitter pine oils linger in the back of the mouth after the sip is gone. A little alcohol heat warms the throat and chest. Quite drinkable given the ABV. This one lives up to the hype for sure and Im glad Ive got 7 more to enjoy. Ill update the rating if theres a measurable difference after a pour one of these into a glass and taste then.

Terminus (3634) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Can-HUGE thanks to Daknole for letting me basically have a whole can of this stuff to myself. fantastic! Pours lightly hazy orange with a small soapy rocky white head. nose is out of this world! Big citrus, lemon, huge floral notes, a bit of green onion, however, i didnt mind that. some white grapes in there as well. Very dank smelling-like fresh nugs. flavors are all hops, no malt, just how i like however, the flavors are just so damn dank. bitterness isnt all that big here, doesnt seem to be the 120 ibus however, the can i had was almsot 2 months old. It would have been more bitter fresh. I have to get some more of this stuff!!!! one of the best IIPAs out there!

Pour reveals a cloudy, golden-orange body with sediment topped by a large rocky white head. The 2 finger head displays good retention and dissipates to a thin cap, leaving some nice lacing as it slowly recedes. The smell is amazing! Big dank resinous hop oil upfront. Bright grapefruit, orange and lemon peel followed by tropical fruit; mostly pineapple and mango. Also has a little bit of sweetness in the nose, similar to honey. Just a touch of bready malt, but not much. It is all about the hops here. Instant zing of citrus and grapefruit with a hop wallop, but without the crazy bitterness. The hop flavor creeps up on you after swallowing. However, it doesnt have that drink-with-caution bitterness that can overwhelm the palate. It takes all of the tastiness one would love about hops while leaving some of the bite behind. The freshness of the hops is really unparalleled, it is by far the "juiciest" DIPA Ive been able to track down. The hops are complimented by a sweet bread malt backbone and it is extremely well balanced. Very little booziness in the taste however, just loads of super fresh and pure hoppy goodness.Chewy and full bodied with somewhat low carbonation, but its spot on. A little oily and sticky on the lips, as expected. This is dangerously drinkable. I could drink this stuff all day its so damn good and it goes down so easy.One of the few beers that actually exceeds the hype. Are there more insane DIPAs out there? Of course. But this has to be one of the freshest and "purest" tasting DIPAs I have ever had. Its near flawless and quite remarkable. The is one of those rare DIPA that will satisfy the hopheads as well as the fans of something more balanced. This is easily one of the best beers Ive ever consumed. Thats why it gets my first perfect score.

This is the best smelling IPA I can recall. Pure rubbing whole leaf American hops in your hand and taking in the pugent nose. Secondly, this beer is incredibly clean and easy to drink. Not overly bitter by any means. Really fruity, citrus, pineapple, peach flavors dance around with a piney resin hoppiness. It is like hoppy fruit juice. Pretty much a flawless IPA. I was not as blown away as I was drinking a Pliny, but its up there as one of my favorite IPAs.

Drank it straight from the can. The aroma is excellent; hoppy, citrus and nice pine. Cant comment on the color as it remained in the can. Solid carbonation, medium body. Taste was superb , nice hop profile, just enough maltiness, not an over powering sweetness. Damn fine ipa.

dfhhead25 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Aroma- wet hay, oranges, papaya, fruit juice, metallics Appearance- yellow-orange, nice white head and lacing Taste- massive assault of hops upfront with a super clean, sweet middle with a twinge hops on the backend Palate- full-bodied, mouth coating at its finest Overall- A very hoppy, oddly complex beer that is awfully damn drinkable. World class stuff here.
