Can thanks to Mike! Good beer is indeed produced in Wyoming. Pours slightly hazy golden, medium creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is oranges, mango, green tea, grapefruit. Flavor is medium sweet, medium plus bitter, citrus. Medium body, lingering bitterness. Well hidden ABV. jrob21 (3722) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Yep. I get it. Definitely a good double IPA. Well deserving of the the gabf gold. Lots of fruit. Smooth hop profile barn0216 (5) - - AUG 7, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 Golden, some foam but not overly carbonated. Predominantly spruce-based hop aroma, a bit boozy for an IPA - not surprising at 9.9 ABV. Flavor is intensely bitter and viscous, some grainy alcohol mixed in for good measure. Definitely detect some citrus notes. YMMV, this is an intense beer. Well crafted in its extremes. patricks110 (2502) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Holy shit. What a crazy brew. Clear straw gold body with a huge, dense off white head with tons of lacing rings. Grassy, pungent and herbal with a leafy green hop aroma. Booze is noticable. Mild dried fruit and citrus notes on the profile with a bit of a syrupy consistency. This is a rich IPA that can only be sipped. Malts are light but balance the citrus and herbacious hop notes. SUper floral aftertaste with tons of hop bitterness attacking the palate. Great brew! j12601 (12680) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2017
On tap at Growler Guys. Pours a fairly clear orange tinged amber with a medium sized white head. Big sticky citrus, stinky musk, a bit of fruit, pungent weedy citrus. Medium bodied, big and sweaty citrus and mangonion tones, sticky and full of weed and citrus. Sweet fruit and sticky pith and grapefruit on the finish.

12 ounce can poured into a pint glass. The beer is a hazy orange with a big white head of foam. Strong head retention and thick lacing. The aroma has strong orange peel character and resinous pine. Bitter orange peel in the taste lending a strong bitterness overall to the beer. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A little warming on the finish. jgb9348 (6324) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Crisp, clear golden coloured body with a touch of bronze and a nice, smooth three centimetre tall pure white head that leaves a decent lace on the side of the glass. Aroma of fresh grassy and herbal hops with a nice bit of alcohol, some subtle yeast and a lot of sugars from apricots and caster sugar - nice smelling. Full-bodied; Rich, sweet, syrupy flavours at first with a dose of grassy and piney hops that hit strong as well, with a lot of bitterness and pungent malt right behind. Aftertaste shows a good balance for the style with the hops by far the strongest, but a little bit of the resin and candy sweetness shows up as well, along with the warmth of alcohol near the end. Overall, a very nice Imperial IPA that hits all the right notes without being too pungent or in a large format! Great to sample and well worth the space in the suitcase! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Beverage in Thornton, Colorado on 04-June-2017 for US$3,35 sampled at home in Washington on 14-July-2017.

Tasted from can. Pours a hazy amber orange with thick white head. Aroma is tropical fruit and some grapefruit and orange. Very well balanced with lots of fruity flavors. Orange, grapefruit, mango, papaya, caramel, toffee. Goes down super easy. Very well done.

355ml can. The colour is a slightly hazy gold. Head is white, sticky and sits low in the glass. Nose - fruit, specifically mango and pineapple. Taste - tropical fruit, citrus, alcohol. Big bitterness, but not over the top. The throat is warmed by the insane 9.9% IF YOUR BEER ISNT MADNESS ITS NOT BEER. Thank you Melvin, I love you. Jow (3958) - New York, USA - JUN 30, 2017
