This is a really good beer. I got the last four pack at my local store and I am happy it was there. I am a firm believer that all canned IPAs are best enjoyed from the can. The smell is piney a little citrus/tropical fruit. The flavor is very passion fruit like even apricots and some blood orange almost grapefruit just to sweet to be grapefruit. The can say 111 IBUs and I feel like the sweetness of the beer really cut the bitterness out of it; I would say it is more of a dry flavor than a bitter flavor. In one way it was enjoyable but when I buy particularly high IBU IPAs I expect a strong bitter flavor but that does not defer me from drinking this beer at all and I rather enjoyed this beer. Definitely a top in my book. It is not a typical tasting IPA which is a good thing. Definitely will buy again in the next release.

Sweet and delicious. Tons of citrus and floral hops. Sticky with a lingering finish. There's enough malt to make a great balance with the hops. Sweeter than Hopslam and damn near as hoppy. Just did a side by side and the Hi Res stood up pretty well. Hope they make this a year round release.

12oz short tall boy can

A) Pours with a finger think white head. Sticky, thin lacing at the edge of the glass. Bronze in color. Slightly hazy body. Semi-sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Piney. Subtle grapefruit notes. Some peppery notes.
T) Definitely loaded with hops, but not ridiculous. A pleasant combination of hops, alcohol and malts for balancing. Still there is a one, two punch from the hops to alcohol Notes of pine. Black pepper.
M) Creamy yet crisp. Medium body, but a bit on the thicker side. Alcohol warmth in the aftertaste.
O) A good brew. A hophead delight.

Nice, two-finger off-white firm head. Brew is a hazy orange. Excellent retention and nice lacing.

Massive citrus and tropical fruit hop aroma, as well as a little flatter, earthy hop note. Ruby red grapefruit, pepper, a little tannin, tobacco, mango. Some light caramel malt backbone. Smells delicious.

Wow! This is truly a can of hop juice. Incredibly sweet, focused on tropical fruit with a minor in citrus. Huge wave of bitterness is really hidden behind the massive amount of flavoring hops. Malt backbone is present, but very much in the background.

Not particularly lively; not much sting, and rather syrupy. Not very balanced (it isn't supposed to be). Noticeable alcohol burn on the back-end. Still very drinkable.

This is an exceptionally potent TIPA, and a beer well-deserving of the moniker. If you're a hop-head, you should try it out. It reminds me of a supercharged Jai Alai.
