Can pours deep amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, apricot, hops, and caramel. Taste is sweet with tropical fruits, mild tea, hops, bready yeast, and caramel malts. Texture is slick and oily. Yum! XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Pours a dark amber color and has a thin frothy head. Has a huge hop scent on the nose and quite the bitter kick in taste. I enjoy this one a lot more than the Furious. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2011
16oz can from Skyview, thanks! You know it’s going to be good when you can smell the grapefruit before the moment you open the can when you’re not even attempting to smell a damn thing! Amber with a medium beige receding head and minor lacing. Aroma is a citrus and grapefruit bomb with some resinous undertones. Plenty of malt, tropical fruits, caramel. Taste is gigantic and bold with grapefruit, citrus, mango and a large malt bill with caramel and a touch of bready malt. Pithy and boozy with high bitterness – by no means a session ale but this session it’s just what the doctor ordered! cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 5, 2011
16oz can. On a good string of DIPA’s, this one as a bonus can from a midwest trade. Aroma is potent, but floral and piney hops dominate. Color is a deep copper amber hue, remarkable really, great lacing. Overall after having NEBCO’s Gandhi, this one has more dominant hops ripping through the finish. GB might be more balanced from entry to finish, but this one had more flavor and punch. Amazing.

16 oz. can. Pours a clear amber color with a huge off white head after an aggressive pour. The nose is as advertised, big caramel malts with an equally big hop presence. Grapefruit and some resin dominate. The flavor has a big caramel maltiness with huge citrus and resiny hops. This is almost chewy it is so thick. Smooth drinking DIPA that has a bitterness that sneaks up on me. I really enjoy this beer when fresh and would probably get it by the case if it were local. evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Light coppery. Orange might be the best way to describe it. More or less clear with little head that dissipates fast. Some bubbles... bubbling up.
Sweetness and hoppy citrus... Grapefruit is the dominant aroma.
Sweet and grapefruity with a balanced bitterness in the back end. The malt flavor is subdued but apparent.
Carbonated, lightish but with some body. Pleasant and not harsh.
Very high. I can only curse the ABV and price tag... this is one I could drink for as long as it’s available to me. As an IPA, this is superior. hallinghansen (3192) - Odense SV, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2011

Pours faintly hazy burnt orange with a nice white head. Very citrusy and floral aroma with tons of hops. Taste is very enjoyable. Nice and bitter, but not too oily and under-balanced. bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Imperial Pint.
Appearance: Mostly clear amber-orange with very thin white head and some lacing tendrils.
Aroma: Sweet and tart tropical and citrus fruits, including grapefruit, mango and pineapple. Also, some light pine and caramel.
Taste: Strong grapefruit and mango which leans more toward the tart side than sweet. Hop taste is further augmented by orange, pineapple, and pine. The caramel malts are minimal but have a slight mead-like quality. Ends just slightly bitter. Certainly flavorful, but a little too tropical to be the best of the best for me.
Palate: Moderate carbonation, oily and smooth body. Slightly dry throughout but not all that dry at the finish.
Overall: Very unique and flavorful DIPA that just barely misses the mark for me. Still very, very good overall.
