Given to me by a friend who went through extreme measures to get this beer to me. Cloudy peach color with with white head that quickly dissipates. Big fragrant citrus and pine aroma as soon as the can opened. Tongue is first met with very bubbly mouthfeel. Juicy citrus start. Very fresh grapefruit juice flavor. Very dry pine finish.

Heady Topper - huge hop aroma. Citrus. Hops. Hops. Hops. Hops. Hops. Hops. Low malt flavor Oly (67) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2014
Got this from leftyhyzer in a trade at Dark Lord Day. Tried first from the can, as suggested, and then poured into a pint glass. It was ice cold at first, which they don’t recommend, and I don’t either. First whiff from the can was all pine and resin. When it warmed a bit, more grapefruit came out. Taste follows through exactly on the aroma: pine and grapefruit hops, with the sweet notes coming through when it warmed. The bitterness was more pronounced than other IIPAs I’ve had, but not overpowering. The palate was a bit fizzier than I expected. Overall, very nice and worth picking up, but it didn’t quite live up to the reputation for me. tommann (3746) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2014
473ml can. Pours hazy gold with a small head. Aroma is banana and mango. Taste has straw to start and a bitter mango finish with some alcohol.

Shared by somebody (cheers whoever) at Kernel, Bermondsey, Saturday 26th April 2014 Wonderful golden colour with a nice white head. Initially a bit sweet but lovely hops come through, bit heavy and not that refreshing, but a damn good beer, it’s really lovely. Thanks a lot to whoever brought this along. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Pours a hazy lively orange color. Got to add that I drank some from the can before I poured, as suggested. The nose is hoplovers dream. A very richly fruity hop with waves of tropical fruit, pine and hop-sap hitting the nostris - as described on the can pretty much. The mouthfeel is fairly light which makes this dangerously sippable. Very ballanced taste too with passionfruit, light citrus and fruity hop. Not drying in the aftertaste which is just perfect. One of the best ipa’s I’ve ever had.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 This is an excellent ipa. Really smooth with a weird smell. Pours a cloudy yellow and has a otter finish. Had at dark lord day.
Beautiful orange color with a smith start and nice hoppy bitter finish. For as much alcohol as it has you would never know it. This is the best easiest drinkin ipa I have ever had

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2014 Had this in line at dark lord day. Tropical citrus taste and very hoppy bitter. Waited a long time for this. Not as good as I hope but it is definatlely delicious.

Drank half from can and half from tulip glass. Fantstic both ways. Bright orange color with white head. Fruity and bitter tropical and grapefruit taste. I deserves the 100 rating. I like it better than Pliny and other top tier IPA’s I have had. Niall73 (2432) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Can at The London Hickster Day. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Lovely funky fruity aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. It's so very tasty. Juicy, dry, toasty, grapefruit... Huge flavour, lovely balance. Very nice.
