An extra from Bigedct. Thanks for the beer! No freshness date.

Pours a hazy straw golden-orange, about 1.5 finger beige head that reduces quickly, leaves a thin film and some lacing.

Smell is grassy, pine, a bit of tropical fruit, citrus. I had a hopslam earlier and this isn't quite as big and tropical, but it also seems less sweet. The citrus comes out more as it warms.

Big grass and pine, some lemon, orange, bitter hop bite in the finish. Slight grainy malt backbone.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side, not overly carbonated, slightly dry.

This is a very good DIPA. Glad I got to try it.

Thanks to GuisseppeFranco for sending this over as a bonus! This poured out as a murky golden color with some flakes floating around in it. The head was white and held a good retention and lacing. The smell of the beer gave off a very nice floral and citrus aroma from the hops. The taste of the beer was really quite nice as well. Again more floral fruity notes with some bitter pine in the finish. The mouthfeel of the beer is nicely carbonated, it's smooth and very drinkable. Overall it was a damn good DIPA. I would drink again if I came across more.

12oz can: Finally got a hold of one of these. This one pours a orange-tinged hazy darker golden color. There was a very small white head on it that doesn’t linger or leave much lacing. Tons of hops in the nose of this one. Lots of resinous pine, and some citrus. Not much else making it past. Taste is very good. Bitter, but some residual sweetness bubbling up. Pine, biscuit, citrus, some caramel malts. Just a touch over medium bodied. Very Nice!

12oz can poured into a NEBCO tulip.

A: Pours a hazy golden-orange with floating sediment. Fine, one finger cream-white head with small ring lacing.

S: American hops - Citrus fruit, predominately grapefruit and orange, then piney aromas with sweet bready malts to back it up

T: Tastes just like the nose smells. Huge hop hit, with generous American hops. Grapefruit and other citrus then piney and almost woody followed by wet bread and a long lasting bitterness that begs you for more.

M: Medium body with mid to low carbonation. Wet and soapy in the mouth.

O: One of the best DIPAs on the East Coast and one that is, IMO, under appreciated. Definitely worth seeking out, especially since it can be hard to find at times.

Poured from a can into a tulip. Pours a nice burnt orange w a thin white head. Sticky lacing w each sip. The aroma is really nice orange grapefruit citrus and pine heavy w a little bit of sweet malt and maybe a bready note in there too. Taste is hopforward piney minty orange citrus grapefruit bitter nice light malt backbone but sweet caramelly and then hop closed w a lingering piney bitter finish. Mouthfeel is pretty light w good carbonation. Goes down smooth for a DIPA. Overall I am very glad to have found the last 4-pack in town of this baby and drinking it right now. This is a hop showcase IIPA. Really diggin the Gandhi-Bot.

Edit: had it fresh this time. It's more amazing than I recall. Notes are similar but the nose punch and finish are much "fresher" this time around.
