4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 473ml can.
The pour is a nice hazy amber with a foamy white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Sure, not the prettiest brew but good enough that the Brewers shouldn’t be ashamed of it leaving the can.
The smell is awesome when you pour it out, better than sniffing it form the can. It has a great deal of tropical mango and cane sugar. Very resiny. Kind of one-dimensional but in a way that I love.
The flavor is really nice. It has a mellow front end with sugar and melon being the main flavors. There is a bit of pale graininess in the beginning that is that sweet biscuity type which is awesome. The finish is bitter with some nice pine. It is pretty balanced with sweetness all the way through and a nice bitterness at the end. It prob could have had a pinch more bitterness to make it absolutely perfect.
Glad I got to try this, I am often let down by hype, but this one is delicious and worth tracking down.
Hit or miss. Some cans of this are pure heaven. Some are meh. The ones that are good though, are really good. mrp00006 (20) - - AUG 17, 2017

Where: A gift enjoyed at a tasting event, thanks Maxbier and dlovell2 and Steve.
How: Large can.
Details: Pours an opaque orange-amber with a thin white head. The aroma is all tropical fruit and citrus leaping from the glass. Starts off with sweet citrus and tropical fruit notes, fading to a very mild bitter finish. The malt is more then enough to balance out the bitterness. It has a full mouthfeel, and is very inviting. This is a top notch IIPA, and I can see why people are trying to imitate it. Definitely lives up to the hype!! Joakgust (1460) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2017
Can. Hazy orange golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of citrus, mango, papaya, passion fruit and peaches. Flavor is fruity with notes of citrus, mangos, pineapple, pine needles, peaches and caramel. Well balanced. EvanFriend (606) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2017
This just tastes like every other IPA out there. It isn’t bad, but it comes nowhere near the hype about it. Boring and overly hoppy. What a let down.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 16 oz can because I know how to follow directions. What needs to be said about this that already hasn’t? Incredible beer. Always surprised by how balanced it is. MatChar (64) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017

Educators on tap- Great notes of grapefruit and citrus. Great straw color. Huge hoppy floral and citrus in the taste. Nice balance with hops and malt. Bright taste! labatttt50 (12) - - AUG 2, 2017
