I’ve had some really good DIPAs and this really doesn’t approach that level. My friend who brought the can from Vermont, and who has had this beer many times before, said that it didn’t strike her as much as previous cans had. The hazy yellow color is nice, and the aroma is fine (standard citrus, etc.) but there’s a superficial bitterness that isn’t as well compensated by the sweetness and malt backbone as I’ve found in other DIPAs. This is fine, to be sure, very respectable, but I’m surprised it has garnered this high a rating/ranking. Can. YanIpa (144) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Une des meilleures Double IPA, que j’ai jamais but. Grande arôme trés floral, une touche de malt et de houblon bien équilibré. Teneur en alcool parfait. Son seul défaut, dure a trouver !! ljthiessen (1326) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Can, courtesy of northropfrye. Big hoppy a aroma right out of the can - tons of pine and some nice citrus. Flavour is quite bitter but beautifully balanced, managing to be easy drinking while still full-bodied and packing a huge hoppy punch. Thoroughly enjoyable. beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JAN 14, 2014
What can I say about such a talked about beer? If we drink with our eyes first, nose second, and mouth third, then this is as close to a perfect beer as I believe is out there. The color is a cloudy yellow gold with a nice pillowy head, Just the look from the nonic pint glass, (yes it does stipulate that you should drink it right from the can, but I can’t) is enough to have the saliva begin to flow. The nose is all hops, citrus and pine to the max. The taste is similar, bitterness through and through, but funny enough, there is a very solid malt backbone here. Its in the shadows and hides until the finish, but there is a nice bready taste that cools off the hops just a little. Fantastic. gmb5127 (234) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Such an amazing beer, had out of the can. Has the perfect amount of citrus to it. Simply amazing.

Pours hazy gold with a creamy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Sorry, can. Aroma of extremely pungent citrus fruit - tangerine and orange being dominant. There are further underlying dank, peach and fruity yeast notes. Superb and totally unique. Taste is medium-sweet malt up front, very quickly leading into massive hop flavour. There is lots of bitterness no doubt, but the citrus and peach flavour balances nicely. Clean and bitter, long finish with a slight spiciness. Hype justified.

Sample at First Sunday. Pours a hazy yellow, with a medium, off-white head. The aroma is intense pine and resin, with some chalk and sawdust. Very bitter flavor, with just a little sweetness. Long, bitter, yet fairly pleasant aftertaste. Medium body, with a sticky, astringent mouthfeel. Maybe this is blasphemy, but I was underwhelmed by this. It is likely that, with more than a couple of ounces, it might’ve grown on me, but from what I had, I’m not impressed. SuperTiti33 (891) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Bu directement de la canette. Vue: aucune idée! Nez: difficile de sentir dans un si petit trou. Bouche: sensationnellement houblonné. Très fruité. Malté. Sucre d'orge. Très résineuse/conifère. Agrume surtout du pamplemousse et de l'orange. Finale sèche qui redemande une autre gorgé. Très rafraichissante pour le pourcentage. Que demander de mieux.

One of the best IPAs I’ve ever had. Great aroma, well balanced malt and hops. Perfect alcohol content. Can’t wait to have it again.
