UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 half from can, half from snifter. pour is cloudy golden straw with lots of sediment. aroma is strong tropical hops (fresh pineapple and mango?). taste starts with lightly sweet hops (citrus and tropical flavors) and trends toward piney hop bitterness in the finish. alcohol is barely noticeable. very enjoyable.
@ Beerlovers Bar Thanks to Kraddel!
Huge hop bomb in your face and in your mouth. Wow, this is fresh and juicy. Peppery and hops all over the place. Fruity and a tad citric. Very juicy mouthfeel. Aftertaste is heaven. beergearbox (94) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2017
Corns should grow on your nose.
This beer is amaze-balls!

From notes. Amber, slightly caramelized vegetable smell, in a good way, like walking into a kitchen where root vegetables have been roasting. Slightly soapy, piney dank flavor. The strength of this beer is the amazing balance and drinkability. Pretty good beer. shawnmurphy (609) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2017
16-ounce can pours cloudy yellow with fluffy white head and lacing (and yes, I know the label says drink from the can for optimum hop impact, but I prefer drinking beer from a glass). Aroma: citrus, fresh-cut lawn, pine. Flavor: grapefruit, orange, some melon and pineapple, pine resins, yeast. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied. Tasty DIPA, but is a bit astringent when it warms.

Co do wyglądy to jest bardzo jasne będąc przy tym klarowne. W aromacie zbyt wiele się nie dzieje, jest mango i ananas ale w bardzo subtelnej formie. W smaku natomiast przekonujemy się jak powinno smakować DIPA na "nowe czasy". Tak jak w aromacie są słodkie owoce, przede wszystkim mango i liczi, ale do tego jest też o dziwo spora dawka ziół i iglaków. Przy tym jest ultrapijalne, a goryczka jest właściwie idealna w kwestii intensywności i długości. Bardzo smaczne Double IPA.

This elusive beer is definitely one if my favorites. The Alchemist had carefully kept this a "destination" experience, not exporting far from the brewery. A true Vermont experience to be enjoyed only in VT.

Best IPA Ever. Tasting in different seasons, year after year. No way. Oconur Gluepot (718) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2017
Like many of the mythical "best beers on the planet" DIPAs, this is a powerhouse hop bomb, but the rest of the world has probably caught up to it. Grapefruit, grass, orange and some tropical fruit notes are pretty fresh and juicy. Not sure it is hitting at 120 IBUs though. The malt is sweet and a bit chewy with a classic caramel undertone. vinivini (3000) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 3, 2017
Can. Tiny sample from happy ocasion. Hazy orange juice colour. Small head. Aroma: gigantic hops. There are citrus and tropical fruit, grassy notes. Additional honey. Medium body. The taste is extraordinary juicy & hoppy. Big orange, tropical fruit. Some grassy and resiny notes. Medium bitterness. Perfect drinkability. Very good.

3 Months old, drank one in can one in glass, preferred in glass. Golden light hazy beer. Taste is awesome, punchy hops all over the roof of my mouth, sage-like herbalness, slightly sweet and slightly bitter, keeps balance by not being too far in either direction rather than lots of sweetness to cover lots of bitter. The hops tingle, grassy, bright, and resinous all at the same time. Huge beer, but not at all hard to drink, overwhelmingly good.
