Stopped by the brewery as part of a tour around New England, having an onsite sample and picking up a case of cans.
Poured into a balloon glass (tried from can as well):
A: Orange and cloudy with a nice foamy head.
S: Intense and complex hop aroma with citrus and pine notes.
T: Hop bitterness with surprising level of sweetness.
M: Intense mouthfeel that really attacks the tongue.
Overall: Intense beer that leaves you hard pressed to have another right away. Great hop aroma and intense flavor. Worth the effort to get your hands on this beer. Amazing Double IPA.

OK we made the pilgrimage from the Capital District in NY to Vermont. The Alchemist will not be open to the public past 11/15/13 while they look for another place to open up. Yep it was worth the trip.
A - If you are looking for clear then look for a filtered beer. This is and was meant to be unfiltered. Nicely done
S - Pine, Grapefruit, Citrus very nice smell.
T - Again the Hops shines and the pine, grapefruit taste comes out.
M - Very nice not too much alcohol.
O - very nice almost perfection.
Serving type: on-tap

The OG of the DIPA world. Had 1 from the can and 1 from a glass.
Pours a murky, shiny orange color. Smells very citrusy and piney. The bitterness is extraordinary. Has a thickness to it that makes it unique but not strange. Easy drinking, making it hard not to just chug it after a long day. Lives up to the hype for sure, and would highly recommend it
