Hazy gold pour. Passionfruit and dank hop aroma. Grapefruit, passionfruit, tangerine, hop resin. Medium body. Read the reviews below, they say it better than me. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2013
(can - 12 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a thick and puffy white head. Fruit is the first thing you get in the nose followed by a juicy citrus hop note. Big hops for sure. The fruit and citrus come through first in the flavor with a ton of hops following it up immediately. Well balanced throughout and leads to a bitter and hoppy finish. Amazing. teorn88 (7687) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 15, 2013
12oz can at Bruce’s, thanks to the host himself. It pours a deep golden colour with a big white head. Deep fruity aroma with persimmon and peaches. Intensely hoppy. Taste is well balanced with dry bitter finish. Slight alcohol kik in the finish. Super hoppy and fruity. Full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very flavourful DIPA.

Can at Pre-Zwanze tasting, thanks to Bruce. It pours hazy orange-amber with a small white head. The nose is fresh pine, orange, tangerine, apricot, resin and Irn Bru. The taste is crisp, orange, grapefruit, alcohol kick, grass, resin, earth and good deal of bitterness with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. A very tasty, drinkable DIPA.

Pours a dark golden in color with nice two finger white head. OK retention with nice lacing. Strong pine aroma with lots of grapefruit and some tropical fruit. Lots of pine and citrus on the tongue with some dank. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Extremely smooth. Overall, an easy drinking, complex DIPA! I'll be seeking this one out again soon.

Can courtesy of Rick, owner of Lardo, in Portland, OR. Colour...cloudy amber-gold with a thick white head. Nose...quite fruity and piney, all at once, with hints of pineapple and quince. Palate...very frothy and quite well balanced between the grapefruit and pine flavours. There’s a sweetness here but the overall balance is quite nice and does not allow either hop or malt to take charge. snoworsummer (5959) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy copper gold with almost no head. Smells fantastic, like sweet grapefruit candy hops. Tastes dry and tangy, like tobacco, sour apple, and citrus funky hops. Medium body and carbonation.
