Eructoblaster (4007) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2017
Can - 1 pint. Beautiful, hazy golden body with a thin, lasting, white foamy head. Lovely hoppy aroma with tropical fruits, citrusy, and mango hints. Its robust, sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy, herbal, and woody/grainy notes. Ends with a long, sharp, moderately warming, bitter finish. Wonderful!

kerenmk (4505) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 23, 2016
Can at home. Cloudy amber with plenty of floaties and big white head. Aroma of sweet onions, a little cake and pear puree. Hoppy yet mellow bitterness, easy to drink with a little bit of onion and no hint of alcohol. Full body, well carbonated, fruity and a little dank finish. Great.

DSG (12533) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 23, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2016 Can sample at kerenmks place. Hazy golden with floaties and a white head. Lovely fruity hops aroma, a bit oniony. Flavor has light sweetish maltiness and bitter fruity hops. Medium-bodied. Very nice. Easy-drinking for 9%.

Nice dank herbal IPA here. Hazy light orange pour, 2 fingers of head and webs of lace. Dank aroma, pine, resin, caramel. Pine and orange up front, weed, citrus peel, caramel like malt balances this nicely. Medium body, slick mouthfeel.

wedgie9 (2663) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Tasted on 12/14/16 from a 16oz can, huge thanks to Jules for this one. Pours cloudy, but bright orange with a thick, beige head that slowly recedes to thick, uneven lace. The nose is tons of dank herbal hops with some grass, a decent amount of pine resin, orange oil, and quite a bit of caramel malt. The flavor is about the same, dominated by the dank resin, grass, orange oil, and somewhat sweet malt balancing. The body is nearly full, oily in texture, with average carbonation, and a long, dank, somewhat bitter, caramel balanced finish.

CurbDog (118) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2016
Very light straw colour (mostly base malt?), thin white head. Light haze with globs of what Im assuming is yeast. This can is two months old, yeast has probably settled. Still potent aroma of citrus and resin. Matching flavour with a peachy character, somewhat sweet (probably from the higher ABV). Medium light body with a bitter finish. Slight heat.

Huhzubendah (3625) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Many cans of this were consumed over the summer and autumn months this year. Several of these were consumed sitting around campfires throughout New England. A bitter hotter than Focal Banger and Heady Topper. Full bodied with dank, hop resins. Juicy with medium-high bitterness. Really solid beer, though its my third favorite of the Alchemist trio.

joeneugs (6105) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Can shared by Sean. Thanks man! It pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is nicely balanced with flowers, peach and citrus. The flavor is the same with some tropical and stone fruit along with some pleasant flowery notes. Nice creamy body with a juicy finish. Delicious. This one lives up to the hype for me.

Tall can at Ilyas (thx, Chris!). Pours a hazy golden with a huge white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, some guelder rose notes. Taste is pretty the same with moderate sweetness. Fruity bitterness aftertaste. Very good!
