UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 Half from the can: as soon as you crack it, you get blasted by piney citrus hops. Very drinkable from the can.. I could have kept going, but I had to give it a look...poured into tulip: cloudy golden, excessive sediment despite careful pour. Aroma remains true. Full bodied, full flavored,some carbonated kick, a hint of alcohol burn. Nice big bitterness throughout and lasts intO next drink. Floral, grapefruit, evergreen... Sweet sour bitter. A resounding winner.

Ar: Lemon and pineapple, medium-low intensity; pith, orange, cinnamon, and resin. Ap: Golden and hazy, though not turbid; large off-white head with phenomenal retention, leaving a unique, beautiful pattern of squiggles and dashes made with foam. T: Thick resin; the resin persists and segues into lime, mandarin orange, and tart berries; bitterness is high but smooth; light cracker malt but with a fairly firm sweetness; clean alcohol warmth, with alcohol also lending to richness and slight sweetness; lime and resin on the finish, with a long, lingering bitterness. P: Medium-full body with quite high carbonation, very lush and rich though not cloying at all. O: This is a uniquely delicious 2XIPA; the hop flavor is thick and intense, mingling with a rich but still very drinkable malt profile; nice notes of spice; looks like a dream in the glass, especially the head.

The can says it is best enjoyed when sipped from there so i poured little into my ipa glass to just catch a glimpse of what im working with. It pours a bright hazy yellow which looks like sunshine. Such a nice looking beer! Smells like all sorts of tropical fruits, hops. This is suprisingly easy drinking for 120 ibu. Tastes of pineapple, mango, grapefruit, resin. Crushable for a double. Great beer, wow!

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Best IPA I’ve ever had. Drank half in a glass and half in the can and it is best from the can.

Pours a beautiful cloudy golden with a dense pillow of white atop (4.25). Aroma is a remarkable balance of sweet malt and juicy hops, no bitterness or overly strong smells, mouth watering (4.5). Flavors are a different animal, with a mighty blast of hop dominating the sip from start to finish. Never harsh, and never too bitter, but always present. You can sense the malt in its backdrop just letting the Hops shine (4.75). Finishes ridiculously clean, not too dry, and just asking for another sip (4.75). Overall just fantastic stuff for my tastes (4.5).

Splitting a pint can with Skippy at his 40th birthday. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit juice, sour orange juice. Oh nice flavor. Pine, orange peel, grapefruit peel, mixture of citrus juice. Very flavorful, very nice pine. Tasty!

Poured from a can into a glass for visual inspection, but mostly drank from the can to keep the hoppy essence intact (per the cans instructions). The aroma is a dense cavalcade of boisterous, pungent, dank hopitude with thick tropical fruitness reminiscent of Rihanna’s underwear (probably, and yes, the highest compliment). The appearance is super cloudy and hazy, beckoning you into the web of its charms like a siren from Homer. The taste is well a fricking perfectly balanced tightrope walk of resin, fruitiness, and just enough bitterness; it is IPA perfected. The first time I had this I thought it was the best IPA I’d ever had and I stand by that assertion. Good for a lazy Saturday night viewing of Adaptation on Crackle broken up by a long discursive conversation about vulnerability and self-doubt with your boooooooo boooooooo and being fed avocado toast.

Flavorful, crisp, drinkable, pretty, & aromatic. Attractive pale gold w/ a white head & good lacing. The aroma is robust w/ floral notes. The taste while containing an abundance of hops, is smooth & goes down quite easily. The hops are so tasty without any dryness. Balanced & overall delicious! Fantastic!

russter (2) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2017 does not count
For me, the IPA by which all others are judged. Earthy, hoppy, not fruity - the best. Best in the can.

Have had fresh and less fresh. Archetype of a style. High points but also one note compared to my faves of the style.
