My favorite hop-bomb beer! There is just nothing negative to say about this, other than availability...Happily, I have many cases of 2011 HS, enuff to easily last me until the 2012 batch comes out.
Bottles, wonderful golden hue with white two finger head, AMAZING aroma, of fruits, grapefruit in particular, honey, and hops. As soon as you open the bottle, the entire area around you suddenly smells wonderful! The taste is just like they describe: It bashes the front of your tongue, with hop-bitterness, lots of tropical fruits, slight honey, but the 10% ABV leaves almost NO alcohol taste, hence a super-smooth finish, with zero "hop-buildup". This beer is just wonderful!!
An extremely well made IPA, citrusy and piney, not sure it's worth all the hype though. Bacchus66 (875) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2017
12oz bottle at home. Golden orange with a sticky white head. Hops, hops, hops. Grapefruit, orange, mangoes, peaches, gooseberries, floral and citrusy hops, caramel and bread. Oily texture. Juicy, bitter finish. The hops more or less mask the alcohol here, be careful. Great stuff. ronnie_c (5) - - AUG 15, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2017 Just awesome. The honey adds the perfect touch to the immense amount of hops in this beer. Iznogud (4058) - CROATIA - AUG 6, 2017
Canned, 355 ml at The Raven Cafe, Prescott, AZ. Pours cloudy orange, white head. Strong hoppiness, pine, citrus, grapefruit, malty, some sweetness, strong lasting bitter finish. Medium+ bodied. Nice one. blackoutblues (12) - - JUL 7, 2017
Amazing beer. Not too taxing on the palate, but with a good strong hop flavor and aroma. Strong citrus notes. Drink it fresh.

Piwo ze styczniowego rozlewu, więc nie pierwszej świeżości. Mimo to jest powalające. W aromacie intensywnie owocowo. Ananas, brzoskwinie i cytryna. Piwo niemal klarowne. W smaku słodko gorzko. Spora goryczka, ale nie zalega. Mega pijalne. Topowe. Mniam.

The beer’s got a great look: orange/light amber with a bubbly head. Even though it’s an older can at this point in the year, the moment I cracked it open the aromas from those Northwest hops exploded out. Dominant floral aromas, raisins and a boozy note to finish things off. It’s also got a bit of a bready aroma in there too, which is surprising to pick up in a DIPA. Overall, it’s a deep, complex beer that held up over the last few months nicely. It’s in the ballpark of a Pliney. bb (9697) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Can. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and pine aroma with tropical fruit. Summer fruit and grapefruit flavor with light pine. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Pine and grapefruit lingers with summer fruit and light malt backing. Honey slightly noticeable. elbernays (1639) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 3, 2017
Can shared. Pours amber with white head. Aroma is honey, sugar, candy floss. I would imagine this is a bit older as hops have died a bit. Flavour is a thick caramel sweet with a wet honey finish. Smooth and still a good beer. benpickens (530) - Camarillo, California, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Pours gold with a frothy white head that holds well; rich passion and mango fruit aromas; oily and bitter palate with a nice finish. My favorite DIPA.
