Pours a hazy peach color with thin white head. Smells floral with citrus and pine. Tastes very citrusy and piney, but low on the sweet fruit flavor. Hops are present but subdued which was nice to see. Very balanced, and VERY drinkable for a DIPA. I can see where all the hype comes from. This beer feels like it is a finely tuned machine, or a work of art. It feels cohesive and intentional in a great way. However, personally speaking, while I appreciate the superior quality of this beer I have had IPAs that I’ve liked better for whatever reason, like Ruination. That’s not to say I don’t like this though. And for sure I will buy some more when I get the chance to get my hands on it again.
For me, the IPA by which all others are judged. Earthy, hoppy, not fruity - the best. Best in the can. CMUBEERMAN (440) - - JUN 19, 2017
Have had fresh and less fresh. Archetype of a style. High points but also one note compared to my faves of the style. MelvinKalksma (1516) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2017

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit and hops.
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with a slight off-white head
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. This is especially true for its abv. Great fruity flavour with a lovely aroma. Great appearance and palate as well. Misses a bit of intensity however.
500ml can. Yellow liquid with a small white head. Nose is hoppy, fruity, grapefruit, exotic fruits, you can’t just stay there, you need to drink it, it is too inviting, can find some caramel malt as well. Taste is just as amazing as nose, once you take a sip you just can’t stop, abv isn’t even felt, you drink is like this is no tomorrow. A lovely IPA for sure. wombat23 (1362) - Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2017
16 oz. can. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of juicy tropical fruit, citrus, grapefruit. Taste is tropical fruit, pine, mango, grapefruit, citrus. Very bitter finish. Excellent.

Poured from a can at MBCC first session. Hazy golden body, bubbly white head, spotty lacing. Fresh tropical fruits on the nose. Mid-sweet citrus flavours, lemon and orange, together with sappy peaches. Citrus peels to the ending. Soft in the mouth. Very nice, a bit heavy to drink though.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2017 Can shared. Pours pale cloudy gold. Pine cone on nose. Flavour is a caramel sweet with a dry grapefruit bitter end. Pours like a pale ale and looks like one. It drinks like one as well. Not a hint of abv. Lovely. Samuel214 (1088) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2017
Burk delad med JoacimMvp, tackar och bockar! Riktigt kul att få testa! Häller upp i glas då vi delar på burken, även om vi låter lite vara kvar och testar från burken. Lätt mörkorange, något disig. Till en början ganska snäll i doften, men växer till sig lite när den varit i glaset ett tag. Smakmässigt är det ännu större. Ruskigt bra punch med ananas, citrus och mango i förgrunden. Stor och fyllig med en stor sötma och härligt klibbigt humle som nästan lägger sig som en hinna på tungan. Härligt stor beska som bryter av något mot de senare NE-style iporna. Stor smak och härlig humlepackad, maxad! Riktigt gott! josanguapo (1622) - SPAIN - JUN 2, 2017
From Bierkrafr. In Teku glass. Watching Looper. Resinous, with pineapple notes. Very balanced and tasty but wont give it full score because some subtle veggie notes not completely pleasant Navers (105) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2017
Satisfying, tasty example of IPA, a little bit overhyped, but indeed very good one. Slightly hazy, golden, mandarin colour. Big head with fine lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, tropical fruits. Massive and enjoyable bitterness, lemon, blood orange, grass, citrus zest, juicy. Well hidden alcohol. I wish to drink it more often.
