16oz can. Pours golden orange with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma is pine, floral hops, lime, some grapefruit, orange, and pineapple. Taste is resin, some caramel, citrus (some orange, some mango, some lime, maybe a little grapefruit - although none are too prominent), a little vanilla, and some spice. Big but gentle bitterness. Lightly boozy. Medium body. Strong carbonation. Relatively creamy, somewhat pillowy mouthfeel, although it lacks the richness of Heady Topper or even Focal Banger.

A healthy pour reveals a honey orange with a foamy head, fermented fruity and dank piney aromas follow, full bodied mouthfeel, bitter lingering back end, taste is bitter oats, palate is a bit slick

Jabic (590) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 1, 2017
Ar: Lemon and orange pith; sweet cracker malt; a hint of mint. Ap: Orange and cloudy; small off-white head with low retention, leaves a smallish ring of foam and a haze of bubbles. T: Marmalade, mango, and papaya; peaches and clean, warming alcohol; crackery malt with a hint of toast; bitterness is high and resiny, but fairly clean despite being so pronounced; a hint of cotton candy, and some cinnamon on the finish. P: Medium-high body with high carbonation, finish is medium-dry. O: A big, sticky double IPA; lots of tropical fruit and resin, with a phenomenal malt backbone.

16 oz can poured, with much thanks to Pruf for the share. Softer hazy pour with a thin fizz head. Snow globe pour. Juicy orange fruit mix on aroma and flavor. Very impressionable hops going on, and a lingering fruity bitterness. Awesome stuff.

luttonm (6276) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2017
Can in Seattle. Tall white foam, haze yellow lemonade, clear edges and a few yeast floaties. Yeast and piney hop nose. Lots of resin on sip, some astringency and bitterness, and a little alcohol flavor. Menthol. Lots of pine. Completely delicious, full body and lovely juiciness. Very drinkable. Pretty quintessential.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2017 Assertively resinous aroma with pineapple undertones. Decent tallboy, hazy tan-gold brew. Sweet, smooth, esteric, hoppy, prominent pineapple, not as bitter as the aroma suggests. Some peppery notes in the finish. Good stuff, not my style though. Thanks to Byron at Proof for sharing.

Here we are in Vermont and the Alchemist is around the corner. The aroma is hoppy to the nth degree filtering out of the can like a testicle popping out of a too tight zipped pair of pants. The appearance is a hazy dank VT style resin bomb. The taste is a glorious blizzard of hop fury, complete with a smooth finish for a 9%er, resiny, dank, citrus, all the goodness. This is a glorious testament to the power of the hop. Good for chilling wit yo homies in VT before Jacking in the box (talking about the Jackbox Party Pack, not the fast food chain, or a dirty reference). BOOM!

Can shared with friends. Well what a treat. Dank hop aroma. Pine, resinous hops. The hops burn into the brain. Dank, citrus medium sweet flavour. Strong bitter finish. Lasting bitter finish. Another great beer.
