Frothmeister (864) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2018
500ml can. Pours a hazy gold with a foamy two finger pale beige head that looks like it belongs on a Belgian tripel. On the nose, orange peel, passion fruit, with some earthy resinous notes underneath. Sweet, and medium bodied with massive candy like peach/apricot notes up front, almost "Hawaiian Punch" like notes, resinous notes under that, with faint bitterness, and pink bubblegum that heads into more of the Hawaiian punch notes with some mineral bitterness under that and a really pleasant fruit forward/light resinous note finish. wlajwl (7431) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 2, 2018
Aroma is citrus/fruit/grapefruit and a hint of motor oil. The flavor is grapefruit, slight honey, malts, tropical fruit and a mildly sweet/bitter hop finish. shawnmurphy (771) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2018

Clear amber color. Hop blend is excellent. Malt sweetness and hop bitterness is well balanced. $4.19 per 16 ounce can is high for this market. gripweed57 (3169) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2018

The aroma is hops, citrus/spruce. Pours a pretty clear yellow/orange with big whitehead mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is light/medium bitter. The body is medium/light, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long and bitter. Pretty good, lacks some in the flavor, but not bad. malrubius (3214) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 11, 2018
Can from Brewtopia. Near clear gold with lasting head and lace. Dank tangerine melon citrus aroma with a touch of honey maltiness. Medium honey apricot tropical sweetness with medium earthy citrus and rind bitterness in dry finish. Medium-light body with very fine lively internal carbo to accentutate hops. Not one of my favorite breweries usually, but this is fucking excellent. superspak (6662) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2018
16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 12/28/2017. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/rind, light pepper, citrus peel/rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, white bread dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, white bread dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, cracker, white bread dough, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous/rind balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 8.5%. Overall this is an awesome DIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish, never overly aggressive. Simcoe, Amarillo, Columbus, and Chinook hops. Perfect balance of juicy, dank, and vibrant hop complexity; nice bready malt backbone, and not too sweet/heavy for the ABV. A really enjoyable offering, love the classic hop combo. thehinge (311) - Nederland, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 In a can, bought at Liberty Beer in Pittsburgh. Golden pour, good carbonation with a good thick white head. Usually, I think Southern brews a good beer. Still convinced that canning negatively affects the taste of any beer and is not the way to go.

$3.80 pint can, Wine Warehouse. Pours clear golden with a large khaki head. Aroma is very citrusy: orange, grapefruit, and lemon, along with apricot and floral hops. Flavor is orange and grapefruit, both juicy and rind... apricot, bitter peach, floral hops, melon. A bit of back end earthiness too. Nice and flavorful.
