Amber orange, cloudy with a thick white foam. Citrus, citrus and citrus smell all the way, with resinous/grassy smell. Taste is very balanced, a little bitter, quite nice. The aftertaste is long and fruity. Really a great beer.

Bought in a small shop in Vermont, opened in a Hotel in Manhattan a few days later. Pale orange and unclear in the glass. Fine foamy head. Fruity and hopy on the nose. Starts fruity, honey, smooth brewwater, earthy, pleasant longlasting bitterness on a malty base. If you have ever the chance to get one, do it!

Clean hoppy aroma. Great appearance, plenty of head and lace. Flavor is hoppy mainly resin, some citrus, balanced with enough malt. Clean palate. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dandeman (926) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Olfactif: des notes de rsineux, de gazon frais; typique des houblons Amricains. Visuel: blonde / dore avec une bonne mousse assez dense et laissant de belles traces. Gustatif: Entre de fruits tropicaux suivie dune finale trs houblonne aux notes de conifre et de gazon brul. La prsence massive de houblon frais du un houblonnage cru lui confre ce petit arrire got de gazon brul lgrement dsagrable.

Pours a hazy burnt umber with a light creamy head. Deep funky hops with piney citrus notes. Aroma is in your face and a sign of the bold flavor to come. Drinks strong and smooth with a mellow maltiness laying under the powerful hops. A mildly bitter finish lingers for a moment but is rounded out well. Overall an outstanding IPA and it's easy to see why it's sought after. That said, the hype may be overplayed just a bit. Slightly reminiscent of Six Point's Hi-Res which is high up on my list. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Found a few cans at a store in upstate NY after striking out during an earlier trip to Vermont. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, dark fruit, spice, and some underlying bread and caramel in the aroma. Bitter citrus flavor, with lots of orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Bittersweet, spicy, crisp finish. Certainly really good, but maybe a touch overrated. Ive had other big IPAs that were about as good, and a lot less trouble to find.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2014 In trade from bibsbrewing on BA. Thank you! Pours gorgeous glowing rich hazy bright orange. Smell is strong citrus orange grapefruit. Taste is citrusy, orange bitterness. Like candied orange peel. Kind of sweet in the finish. Too syrupy of a body and normal carbonation. Good but doesnt differentiate itself from the field of endless double ipas for me too much really. Kind of reminds me of what I remember Maharaja tasting like. Not my favorite style lately, but glad to have tried it.

Nice to have finally found the notes on this. I had two cans. One was poured into a snifter and the other was drank out of the can. The appearance in the snifter was a hazy burnt orange color with a ton of floaties surrounding the body. The head was about a fingers worth of white foaminess. There was some light lacing sticking nicely to the sides of the glass. The smell out of the can and glass was basically the same as it was pure citrus to piney hops that ended up assaulting my nose in a nice bitter/dank sort of way. The taste between the can and the glass was the same as it was pure bittersweetness from the hops. Even as this one warms, the sweetness comes from the hops and not the malts. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was sharp due to the style and was much expected. Overall, I can see why so many people like this. If I lived within the brewerys distro Im sure Id be stalking this brew at least on a weekly basis. However, I do have to say this and thats the fact that this isnt exactly the most balanced in the nose. Also, whats with the "only drinking it from the can?" So what if theres floaties - who cares. I didnt know the floaties police would be after John Kimmich for allowing floaties in his beer.

By far the best IPA I have ever had. Hints of citrus and pine with lots of funk. If you find it drink it young and fresh. Wish it made it to the west coast.

Pour from a can (only enough to get an aroma and color) was a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is floral with a nice citrus. Taste is a little grapefruit with a hint of pine. Goes down smooth and doesnt have much of an after bite.
