Aroma is mango/pineapple. Light to medium body mouthfeel. Aftertaste is of dry tart grapefruit. Finally got to taste this son of a bitch!

Thanks to ‘Mikefriedman90’ for hooking me up with this. Pours cloudy dark copper amber color that leans towards mahogany brownish color with a huge thick foamy 2 finger beige head that faded very slowly and left great foamy lacing and rings as it went down; bubbles could be seen racing up the brew like champagne.

Wow, the citrus hops are very strong and fruity like sticking your nose into an orange, yet the caramel and malty graham cracker come through to add fantastic balance to go along with the mix of pineapple, mango, grapefruit and other fruits like dried apricots or even dried sugar coated pineapple chunks. The piney hops and mild spices trail, with some coriander and brown sugar to keep this bad boy sweet and fruity smelling. Definitely smells like fresh hops or hop oils in the mix and it smells wonderful.

Taste picks up right where the aroma leaves off: fresh juicy hops, tangerine, orange peel, grapefruit, pine cone/piney hops, caramel, toffee, sweet malt, graham cracker, pineapple, mango, French toast, and what then seems like some floral hops to wrap up the hop assault; earthy herbs like spruce and spices like coriander and pepper keep the ABV hidden and work well with the malt backbone to allow the hops to dance on the tongue in a prickly manner. Very easy drinking DIPA at 8.8%, dangerously easy in fact.

Mouthfeel is creamy but medium bodied and almost chewy with light carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste that was more malty and cracker than sweet citrus hops. Overall an outstanding beer, too bad they have to change the can as the artwork is classic.

Very much over hyped and because of that, expensive. It's a pretty solid IPA. Doesn't touch Heady Topper but comes close with that can feel. Nice mouth feel and buzz.

hazy orange color with big juicy notes of heavy grapefruit and melon. Awesome taste and very crushable. One of my favorite double ipas to consume. Will be unfortunatly be re-named :(
