Murky gold pour. Citrus pine hop aroma. Nice balanced floral taste. Smooth start to finish. A good ipa from a can, love the picture. Worth it to try again. On my top 10 ipa list 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. pfriesen (113) - Richmond Hill, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
Intensely hoppy aroma, slightly cloudy, good lacing. Flavour is sweet peach, finish is only moderately bitter JStax (7125) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Growler shared. Pours a clear copper with a white head of foam. Tropical fruits and grass. Fruity and sweet and mildly bitter. Delicious. olost (18) - - SEP 28, 2014
Uma das IPAs mais gostosas que tomei. Macia, espuma fina e muito saborosa. Desce mais leve do que qualquer outra.

Amber color, a little dark for the style. Not too bitter with great balance provided by the caramel malt. Light to medium bodied, very drinkable, and the carbonation level is just right. Spruce, grapefruit, resin hops. Similar to Heady Topper in the sense that it packs tons of flavor while remaining very smooth, even sessionable. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - APR 24, 2010
UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 16oz can in a tulip glass. Pours dark amber color with thin off-white head. Citrusy hop aroma. Strong hop flavor, full body, but a dry, resiny finish that is not as pleasant as some other beers in this category.
Edit: 2013 - 12oz can. This beer has changed so much. Every time I drink it I like it more and more. The hops are really strong, but they are smooth and bitter in a pleasant way. The flavor is so hoppy with a nice balance from the malts. Definitely a great beer.
Edit: 2014 - Growler. Still one of the best beers in the state of CT, other than the other NEBCO beers. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. The glass is left coated with large rings and chunks of soapy lacing.
Sweet citrus hop aroma with plenty of earthy notes and a subtle malt presence. There’s some grassy pine needle and dank hop oils but the tropical/citrus fruits are most prominent in the nose. Lots of mango, grapefruit and citrus rind along with subtle biscuit.
Medium bodied with a complex, flavorful hop profile that is nicely balanced by a sweet malt backbone. Bitter and sweet notes play off of each other with hints of dry and bitter pine needle/grass countered by notes of grapefruit and orange. The dry bitterness lasts throughout, even when the sweeter notes come into play and linger into a nice dry finish that leaves me thirsty for me. The malt backbone adds sweetness with notes of caramel, toffee and biscuit without getting in the way of the hops. Really well balanced and very flavorful with an excellently masked ABV making it dangerously drinkable. I’m impressed and ISO more! Gription79 (2893) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 12, 2011
12 oz can thanks to Cletus!1more4dessert (336) - Upstate, New York, USA - APR 16, 2013
Aroma: pine/citrus hops
Appearance: golden, white head
Taste: hints of caramel, pine hops, fruity hops, bready malts
Palate: fairly light, sticky resin from hops
Overall: What an amazing beer! I loved the can and what it held.
very cloudy and golden with small white head and decent lacing, good citrus, floral and pine in nose. Malt does not get in the way but there is enough to make the beer bidimensional (hay/cereal). Body is medium. The 4 pack at 8.4 abv per would go down rather easily. Can only says 3 types of hop without specification. I think cascade and simcoe are two of them.
