I tried a can (as the can advises) while in Stowe, VT. I had heard it was rated number one in the world so I wanted to check it out. Admittedly, I don't really tend to enjoy IPA's. It has a great aroma, but taste was very bitter, for my tastes. Also, it was not very sessionable at all considering I was fairly drunk before finishing the can. Not for my tastes but I can see why it's so popular if you like happy beers.

Don't see the big deal here. Very similar to many other citrusy DIPA's with a little creaminess to it.
