12 oz can from a six pack from Heritage Meats. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, perfume, candy. Pours nearly clear burnt orange with a collapsing beige head and little flecks of sediment floating around. Taste is highly bitter, with a tad malty sweetness that attempts to help balance it but doesn’t succeed very well; flavors of citrus, pine. This beer holds up pretty well for being canned six months ago. Didn’t notice the date till I walked out of the store. Doh! This brewery is brand new to my area, so it’s really surprising this is that old. The distributor must have had it sitting in their warehouse for awhile before bringing it into the market. Fuckers. This beer would have been amazing when fresh. AtronSeige (1688) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - APR 12, 2016

22A. Double IPA RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is well hopped with fruitiness, and the flavour is very bitter with bags of hops. Overall a nice strong IPA.

Transparent orange-amber, not much foam but also not poured too vigorously. Aroma has citrus, herbal, cut grass and bit of sugar crust. Taste is fragrant, resiny and actually also sweet. I feel some fresh pine sprouts mixed with honey and brewed into a hoppy nectar - because this is how it feels. Great example of a well executed DIPA. scottm2588 (184) - SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2016

Thanks Greg for sharing the can!
Poured into a wine glass showing moderate filtered golden yellow with sparse white foam.
The nose shows hints of honey with strong notes of pine, pineaple, and hemp.
The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Shows a lot of pine resin, a light malty sweetness, and a sharp IPA bitterness on the finish. Pretty much your standard DIPA but pretty solidly done. jamestulloch (4259) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2017 Can (8.2% ABV) from The Beerhive. Clear golden/amber body with a thin white head. No visible carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of orange peel, salted lemon, white bread, shower gel and dried leaves. Flavour of menthol, tomatoes, pine, grapefruit, sweet malt and a big bitter finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Heavy on the hops. Decent. zvikar (6345) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - FEB 21, 2016

Can (8.2%) from Casa De Oro. Very dank and dry up front. Extremely clean with a potent hop character that sticks around from start to finish. Great 2IPA. One of the best I’ve had in a long time. J_man (1022) - Tustin, California, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Crystal clear deep golden yellow body was a phony off white head. Sharp citrus and pine hop aroma with and almost estery quality. The hops come through loud and clear in the initial taste. This is followed by a surprisingly rich and creamy malt body with enough caramel sweetness to balance out the bitterness. This balance goes back and forth and builds in a delicious way. Near the end the taste becomes almost of tropical fruits. The bitterness lays down on the tongue but not in the overwhelming way. Finishes clean and sweet with a lasting bitterness. Very tasty DIPA.
