My first BA review... here goes..
Drank most of them from the can as instructed (but had to drink one from a glass too)
Appearance is a wonderful, murky, yellow-orange.. looks as much like a geuze as it does an IPA
Smell is ridic, best scent on an IPA ever... whatever your 'mental image' of the way an IPA should smell like is, it should be heady.
One of the best tasting IPAs out there, but HF double citra was the first I have had beat it in a side by side. Not excessively citrusy or floral, but a good mix of the two.
Mouthfeel is what makes this beer amazing in my opinion, unlike any IPA I have ever had.. almost thick in its own unique way. Incredible
Overall this has to be a 5. It ca be beat, but when you are comparing greatness to other greatness, it is hard to say that one is the clear winner. This beer has made me drive 12 hours one way 2 years in a row. If you haven't had it, trade for it, or make a beer-cation to Waterbury VT... it is worth the effort and then some.
