4.33/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a tulip glass, leaves a nice two finger head that stuck around for a while,bright orange, nice lacing. Not a bad looking dipa. Smell is not over powering. Getting some pine and maybe lemon, with some slight caramel. Light carbonation and very creamy on the first sip. Definitely pine and grass up front, a little bit of citrus to follow. Aftertaste of pine and lemon, very nice. Nicely balanced with a nice little hop bite at the end that sticks around on the tongue for a while. For whatever reason I was expecting a hop bomb, probably random comparisons to heady topper I've seen on here, not the case, but still worth seeking out.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz orange and red can with a really creepy gun metal Gandhi robot with a hop vine next to him. The back of the can contains all the mandatory US info, a quick description of the beer, and printed signatures of the owners or brewers (?). A stamped canned date or a best before date on the bottom would have been nice.

When poured into a 7venth Sun Snifter, this DIPA was a beautiful golden copper orange with a tiny trace of lemon yellow at the bottom. This beer had a very nice haziness to it. When I held it up to the light, I could see only a brief silhouette of my fingers on the other side of the glass. That's thanks to all the hop particles floating around the beer. In top of this hazy brew was a 1/2 an inch dirty white head of foam. This dirty white foam had very good retention that left behind a big solid string of rings and numerous blots and streaks of lace. All around great appearance!

Gandhi Bot sure loved the scent of hops. You'd think a robot would like the scent of oil and gas. The first whiff of this beer revealed to me this bot's love for the scent of piney hops with a small mix of citrus hops as well. My nose also picked up a few citrus fruits like grapefruit and lemon peel. At the back end of the aroma, I found a subtle whiff of lightly toasted caramel malts. No hard to tell who ruled over this aroma.

Saying that this beer was hop forward would be an understatement. This beer wasn't messing around when it came to the hops. This beer kicked off with that hop combo that was in the aroma. That means I got to taste the bitter piney/citrus hop punch. This hop punch went Stalin over this taste by ruling over this taste with an iron fist. There was no Gandhi in this taste. The only thing that the hops let through was a splash of bitter grapefruit, a touch of lemon zest, and a tiny pinch of toasted caramel malts. It was hoppy, but it wasn't overly hopped.

This was a medium bodied DIPA with a good level of carbonation and very hoppy aftertaste. It was just the citrus/piney hop punch in the aftertaste. Nothing else! This bitter aftertaste lingered on for some time.

If you can get passed the creepy can, you'll find a great DIPA. A 4 or 6 pack (not sure because I got it in a trade) of this would not last long in my possession.

Poured into a Dogfish Head Spiegelau IPA glass.

A - Poured a slightly hazy golden/orange color. Little sudsy head.

S - Good hop forward presence. Picking up on some citrus flavors.

T - Great citrus/tropical fruit flavors. Considering the date on the can, I was surprised the taste was still so good.

M - Very smooth, mild carbonation.

O - I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I was given this can as a gift and the date was about 3 months old. Regardless, the flavors were excellent and was very easy to drink. Wish I had more!

4.53/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Three fingers of thick, frothy head. Dark amber in color, and a bit hazy.

S - Lots of sweet malts. Caramel. Some resin and citrus.

T - An excellent mixture of hops and malts. The hops come through more on the taste than the nose, balancing nicely. The finish is moderately bitter, but very well balanced. Also hints of grass in the finish.

M - Medium body, with perfect carbonation. Very smooth.

O - This doesn't come across as a typical hop-bomb DIPA. It is extremely well balanced, and the delicious malt characters stand out. This isn't what I was expecting, but it was a pleasant surprise.

Can share at Proof courtesy of Matt Masterson. Pours a pale slightly hazy yellow. Good bubbly white head that lasted almost a minute. Thin collar. Nice spicy, piney hop aroma with a fair amount of malt sweetness noticeable. Taste is the same. Great. Again, not a piney hop fan, but when it's done well, it really works. High carbonation and medium body.

4/5  rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This beer gets everything right, including being strong, and provocatively packaged.

I like hot and spicy food, and beer that will hold up to that. This delivers.

Hazy light rust color and a 1" head, fizzed down to nothing in a minute. Scant lacing.

Wafts of freshly cut rhubarb, hay, weed, and reminds me of some trail brushing project in the spring.

Taste is pure hop fondue. Deep woods off in the jungle steaming wet hops. No sign of pretend or stale ingredients. Nuggets of gold in a deep ravine. Cold water and wild fish.

Mouthfeel is foamy and spongy and invites me to sample sips rather than chug. Chugging would be a serious waste, the feel tells me, of the flavor. Frequently returning to sip, in rapid succession, introduces a pleasant bitterness to my mouth.

General Ghandi-Bot commands attention to those who get the orders to drink. Now what would a private session with this on tap be like? xxxx

4.66/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A- poured into a snifter. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a foamy white head, good retention leaving a small sudsy layer. Some small resinous particles floating all around

S- fresh leafy hop resin pours out of the glass, some citrus/grapefruit notes, mango, fresh grass, light floral, underlined by light buiscity malt, a nit reminiscent of Heady

T- heavy dose of leafy and floral hop to start, some citrus and grassy notes kick in, leading to a slightly sweet tropical mango, the malty notes are slightly bready, and allow the hops to showcase, dry and leafy on the finish

M- medium body and carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel, leading to a silky smooth finish. ABV is amazingly hidden

O- this is an amazingly well crafted DIPA, it's right up there with Heady and has many similarities IMO. Leafy and fresh with amazing drinkability

3.95/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured the entire can so that may explain the slight haziness. A golden-straw color with a light white head maintaining about 1/8th inch above the body of the beer.

S: Stone-fruit hop aromas. Freshly cut grass. Not overly citrus. Hops seem to balance well with a light biscuity malt character. Alcohol detected on a deeper sniff.

T: More of the grassy notes come forward with a nice bite of bitterness lingering throughout. Malt character stays out of the way for the most part. Just enough base-malt backbone to balance. Bitterness still lingering… Not saying thats a bad thing.

M: Just a tad high in the carbonation department. "A tad, Lloyd!?!?" Body is perfect for the style. Slight oily hop quality which is also good.

Overall I am definitely enjoying this beer! Im always a little iffy when it comes to IPA's from the east coast, but this may be one of the better ones I've tried for sure. Its talking me about 25 minutes to finish off a 12oz can. Again, not a bad thing. Worth a glass for sure. Cheers!

Poured this from the 12 oz. can into a snifter.
Nice dark amber, cloudy and looking to be unfiltered. 1.5 fingers of head, tangerine hints in the head.
Smell is nice but not overpowering. Nice tropical juicy citrus hops.
Taste is right in line with aromas. Some good bitterness, some solid hoppy citrus flavors. More in line with Sculpin than say, Double Sunshine or Heady.
Overall, happy to have tried it. A very solid DIPA.

Bought many cans of this from Harvest Wine & Spirits in Hartford, CT. Poured into a Waterford snifter. It's a beautiful orangy DIPA with a thick white head and lots of hops/exotic fruit coming off the nose. The part that just doesn't hold up for me in this brew is as it warms... the hops get really abrasive. Other DIPAs I've had are definitely better on the back end. In fact, I've drain-poured because of the aftertaste -- it can be amazingly harsh/bad sometimes. Otherwise, it's still an amazing brew for the first three quarters. I would definitely be willing to trade if anyone is searching for it.

A-Cloudy bright yellow orange, nice carbonation, one finger head, tries to leave some lacing.

S-Rather hoppy, citrus, grass, pine, well balanced.

T-Very hoppy, yet balance. Not unending waves of hops like a Pliny or Heady, but a good deal. Citrus, earthy, bread, ends with a nice bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, good deal of hop resins.

O-A well well made DIPA. Not elite, but damn near close. A really good beer.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

A-Pours a hazy golden orange with slowly receding, creamy white head.

S-Imagine a pine tree growing mango, grapefruit, and banana. Really quite excellent. The citrus makes way to a lighter floral smell to finish.

T- Boom! Heavy floral notes to start, leads way to a hearty banana bread with lemon zest. Flavor mellows, with the slightest boozy taste at the end to let you know what's up. I am loving this.

M- Perfect carbonation mixes with a creamy feel. Booze hits you right before you swallow.

Overall, this brew is fantastic. I can see myself enjoying this while getting all riled up during a Flyers hockey game on a cold winter night, or at a campfire after a hard days work during the summer. Thank you NEBC!

This poured a unique melon color orange with a thick head of soft white cottony foam that fell in rings and patches and finally left a thin layer on top. This had large white floaties in it and some sediment that detracted from the appearance. In a certain light it appears to have a muddied color brown in it but against the natural outdoor light it is pastel orange with light hues. This one is murky.

Nose is sensational with a wild tropical fruit character. Melon, mango, candied citrus peel and orange. Pine and dank grasses. Herbal hops and a powerful floral that was not perfumey or heavy. Hardly any malt on the nose until it warms and then some light caramel sugar.

Taste is a ride for the palate that you won't soon forget. It starts with more bread than you ever thought was in there. It's light and sweet. Then there is an all over mineral softness to the body of the beer that presents the fruits as a whole and liek a juicy succulent punch. Grapefruit, candied fruit peel and orange with some tropical notes in the background. A nice spice comes to the middle and a sharp bitter. This finishes dry and with a little bit of herbal and spice in the aftertaste. It's a famous bitter in this one. And the dank herbs fill the nose as you draw the glass down.

What a delightful beer. It drinks fluidly with a body that is so light . I could have four more of these. Non stop taste.

Mouth feel:this imperial IPA has a very solid mouthfeel. Not watery at all, and is well balanced with the higher alcohol content.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

The beer pours a pale orange color with notes of amber. The beer forms a big, beautiful head of creamy white bubbles that last at about a finger’s width above the glass. In body, the beer is clean of particles, but very hazy and nearly opaque. On the nose, this beer is big and beautiful. Pine needles, pinecones and sweet mango juice mingle with dank and spicy weed, grapefruit rind, and soft alcohol notes. From the can, the nose is just about the same with just a touch more roundness coming from the citric scents and less of the alcohol burning the nostrils. On the tongue, the beer tastes hugely and properly bitter with resinous pine sap sticking to the tongue. Sweet hops, alcohol, and light bread malt mingle with citric acidity to make up the side show. The finish is dry with only slight sticky sweetness lingering. On the tongue, the beer is medium bodied, with fluffy carbonation that gives velvet softness to the mouthfeel. The mouth is left sticky with resin and bitter tingling, the palate is wrecked. From the can, the beer feels slightly crisper. In flavor, the beer tastes of resinous pine, sweet mango, light pineapple, grapefruit, and apricot. Distinct fresh hop flavors bubble on the tongue and feel sticky and very resinous. The taste has a strong backbone of medicinal bitters. Mmm. A bit sickly sweet, but not too much so. The cloying alcohol seems most present in the finish which also features dry cracker malts at the very base of my senses and strong piney hops. Overall, this is a damn good double IPA. It would be excellent on a late summer afternoon. Great bitters, great hop character, and a great effect on the tongue. The alcohol is just a tad too much, but other than that I like this beer a lot.

Huge thanks to TheSevenDuffs for including this in the fall Canbif, huge want.

A: Muted orange colour, slightly hazy with small amounts of sediment suspended throughout. 1-2 fingers of bone white head which leaves plenty of lacing.

S: Musk melon and orange peel together with incredible herbal hop notes and earthiness. Hints of fresh lemon in the background along with caramel.

T: Pronounced herbal and pine resin sap followed by orange rind. All balanced by a large amount candy sugar. Finishes with a slight bitterness on the tongue.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy in texture.

O: Unique in the herbal notes which are very pronounced and enjoyable. Expertly balanced with a high amount of malts while still allowing the hops to shine through. Well deserving of its ranking.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip. Not sure on the date of this can, but my guess is about a month.

Appearance: Pours a medium amber with an orange hue and leaves a couple fingers of white medium-density head which lingers a bit before slowly fading out.

Smell: Piney hops come out first, but they are accompanied by some malts, citrus and mango. Very nice, well balanced aroma with plenty of hops.

Taste: Pine out first again, accompanied by earthy tones, grapefruit and orange. This does have a nice malt backbone to hold things together. Very smooth, consistent flavor highlighted by the piney hops.

Mouth-feel: Medium to well carbonated with a medium, smooth, creamy body. Finishes very evenly.

Overall: A quality, well-balanced but still hop-foward IPA. Fairly drinkable, but not as drinkable as some of my favorite IPA's of similar, that said this is still an top-quality IPA. Very tasty.

12oz can poured into an English pint glass. Big thanks to MarkJC1018 for hooking me up with a long-time want of mine.

Pours a hazy golden-amber, almost the appearance of apple cider when held up to a light. An initial 1.5-finger, off-white head subsides to a thin layer of foam atop the beer, with plentiful amounts of visible carbonation to keep that film alive . Leaves thick curtains of lacing down the side of the glass.

The nose hits me like a sack of bricks as soon as I crack the can. Powerful grapefruit, resinous pine, and subtler citrus and tropical fruit notes mingle pleasantly with an earthy, almost funky aroma and sweet malt notes. Potent and intoxicating.

Piney and resinous from the get-go, some sweeter notes are introduced mid-palate to balance the hop attack--pineapple, mango, tangerine, and blood orange mingle with caramel malt notes to give this beer some complexity. Finishes with a lingering piney bitterness as well as a faint, slightly unpleasant aftertaste that reminds me almost of chewing on grapefruit rind.

The beer is medium-bodied but smooth, coating the tongue nicely even as the carbonation keeps it snappy. Sticky, with a lingering, clinging dry bitterness on the back of the palate. The 8.8% is nowhere to be found.

On the whole, a damn fine beer. Slightly peculiar aftertaste aside, this is an excellent example of the DIPA style. Smooth, easy drinking--especially for its strength--and exceptionally well-balanced for most of the mouthful, as well as possessing a stellar nose. Delighted to have gotten the chance to try this New England gem.

A: Poured from a can into a pint glass. Opaque with haziness and a light brownish color that looks like hay. A thin, white ring of head with some wispy lacing.

S: Woah does this beer smell enticing to hopheads. Bright citrus and pine, fresh grass and flowers all hit up-front with a slightly bready finish. Notes of grapefruit zest, fresh needles, tulips and a touch of vanilla on the end.

T: Tastes like a summertime DIPA, with bright characteristics, a refreshing hop bite, and a smooth cooling citrus. This is hop-forward with a lemony citrus flavor riding over a nicely balanced bready malt. The finish is just a little dry, with notes of flower petals and pine cones lingering. Great flavor profile, without a hint of alcoholic esters. This is a surprisingly refreshing DIPA.

M: Smooth and crisp with a little dryness on the after-feel. This fills up your mouth without crowding it, and leaves you wanting more.

O: This beer is a definite for those who seek aromatic, flavorful, and even-keeled Double IPAs. Its not going to hit you over the head with anything, but it's going to please you all-around.

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a loose full finger collar with reasonable hang time. Leaves an average amount of lacing. Visibly effervescent with tons of tiny bubbles clinging to the sides and keeping the head alive.

Wonderful Nose!! Could smell the fruity citrus character at arms length as soon as the can opened. Big tangerine grapefruit orange peel aroma. Best part so far! Bells and whistles are going off that this one is gonna be hoppy too.

The effervescence lightens up the mouth feel pretty well. I’m enjoying the sharp tone and it’s a real compliment to the flavor. It struck me as being on the dry side at first, but after several mouthfuls I’ve built up a substantial oily resin aftertaste that is lingering REALLY NICELY : )

This one isn’t bashful!! Full flavored, the grapefruit blasts through and is joined by a piney resin that’s FULL ON! Well past halfway down…the nose is still big and complimentary.

A REAL TREAT!! The 8.8% ABV is timid and well hidden. Boy, this one had a lot going on…and was a real PLEASURE to consider. THANKS JAY!!!!

Poured into a stemmed wineglass from the 12 oz. can(drove to the northernmost packie on 395 in CT that carries this in Putnam Ct to get this.

a: Deep orange color, small head with crazy graffiti level lacing.

s: Fresh hops, I've never smelled a beer quite like this. Most hoppy beer still smells roughly like beer, this is something else altogether. The is truly smells more like a hop pillow or newly arrived fresh hops. This aroma is totally new to me.

t: Much more balanced than expected. Nicely hidden alcohol, crisp hoppy taste, but very little aftertaste.

m: Moderate and smooth, the medium carbonation. Very balanced.

o: Amazing. At or near top of its class. I really wish they would expand distribution into Mass and would love to try their fuzzy baby ducks IPA.

Pours a cloudy golden in color w/ a nice 1 finger white head that leaves light lacing on the glass. Aromas of mild citrus, dope, and cat piss. The flavor starts off with nice citrus, then transitions to a marijuana dankness, and finishes with moderate herbal bitterness. Creamy and lush on the mouthfeel. Pretty drinkable stuff at 8.80% ABV.

Overall, this is a very good DIPA that I have had numerous times and would never pass up. It's a very solid DIPA, just does not WOW me like Double Sunshine or Heady. However, add it to the list of solid east coast DIPAs which is ever increasing.
