Incredible beer out of can. Smooth beer with piney notes, tropical fruit and nice subtle bitter finish.

A bright, hazy, hoppy DIPA. NE style dry hop finish. Delicious.................… ---R via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 someone 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.

1 pint can. Pours very hazy, golden yellow with a thick off white frothy head. Thick full look with some residue at the bottom of the glass. Smells citrusy hoppy with some pine and resin. Some pineapple and mango with a bit of malts as well. Smooth earthiness as well. Very hoppy and bitter taste. Nice resin and pineyness throughout. Some citrus and bright fruits but mostly bitter. Thick full mouthfeel, great frothy carbonation and a long lingering bitter aftertaste. Overall not as fruity and citrusy as I usually like them but a very good strong hop flavor. Lovely.

First time having the crusher. Very good double IPA. The hops don't overpower the aroma the way a lot of double IPAs do. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a very cloudy pineapple with foamy eggshell head. Smells juicy, bitter, and grassy with notes of pineapple and grapefruit alongside a big bittersweet backbone. A bit of green onion as well. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly bitter medium full-bodied mouthfeel thatís mildly warming, but smooth. Tasty, but definitely bigger and less sessionable than Focal and Heady.

Thanks to Rich and Jeff for the share. Can, pours a hazy golden color with small white head. Softly carbonated with particulates. Heavy citrusy hoppy aroma. Super citrusy with a touch of piney hops as well. Mostly mellow bitterness. Medium bodied with lingering bitter finish. Very good.

Maakun (5408) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2017
Can crushed all by myself. Hazy orange golden with white head. Loads of lovely fruity hops with orange, grapefruit, mango, passionfruit, light marijuana and a hint of cheese. Thereís quite some sweet malts, but thereís a nice caramel and soft hazelnut aroma to it as well. Quite sweet and bitter. Well actually itís really sweet and bitter but they balance each other out a bit. Almost full bodied. This is really well done, Iíd say the best high abv IPA Iíve ever had. Really good!
