Poured from 660ml bottle into IPA glass (best before date was 01/05may/2017 and drunk on 31/5may/2017)

Look: Off white creamy 2 finger head, good head retention and high lacing. Cloudy with a caramel/amber colour (15 on the BJCP chart). Low moderate carbonation.

Smell: Straight off the bat pine and a caramel sweetnes present, floral notes, followed by some grapefruit (and maybe pineapple) and floral notes, typical of American IPA style. Ethanol very slightly.

Taste: Floral and citrus notes much less present, with the hoppy bitterness very forward (unsuprising for 76 IBU) malt balance. Ethanol subtle but more present than in the nose.

Feel: Creamy but not as smooth as competitors, noticeably carbonated, ethanol present throughout, combining to a chewy mouthfeel overall.

Overall: For a beer that had "expired" this was a very enjoyable beer. On nearly every page apart from BeerAdvocate this is listed as an American Imperial/Double IPA and I feel this has more in line with that than a traditional American IPA. The price tag at AUD$9 (possibly owing to the expiration date) was more enticing than the AUD$22 normal price though.

Pours a hazy amber/honey from the bottle. Slight head, minimal retention. Hints of honey & malt up front. Aftertaste is a bit off, slightly resinous, but certainly not a deal breaker. Nice IPA, would buy again.

Picked up a six pack in Wilmington Delaware since I was intrigued. Now on my second bottle and have to say that this is an enjoyable beer. Pours a burnt orange color. The taste and feel of this beer is similar to Lagunitas Brown Sugga. This is a rich malty beer. I enjoy as a night time slow drinking beer.

On-tap served in a pint glass at Dog In Yard, Bangkok.

Translucent amber orange in color, it comes with thick creamy off-white head that withstands with great retention before slowly sinking to an eternal foamy crown and leaving plenty of sticky lacing here and there.

Loads of fruity and juicy hop in a nose, there comes citrus, tropical, grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, lime, as well as spice, resin, and intense pine. Malt is also significant with its caramel and sweet candy.

Big and bold hop through the palate sensation, it nicely discloses with notes of tropical, citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit, lime, spice, resin, and solid piney bitterness. Malt plays as the supporting role with its rich sweet candy, bread, and caramel. The end and aftertaste is lasting with persistent hop bitterness together with some residual malt sweetness.

Medium body with low carbonation and only a little bit of crispness through the palate, the feeling is quite smooth with a typical dry finish. Oh yes. 7 heaven!

Poured from bottle into pint, massive 2 finger light caramel head, lives forever, great lacing. Hazy Amber in the glass. Smell knocks you in the face with pine and pineapple with some caramel malt sweetness pushing thru there is an underlying dankness here also. Taste is pretty much like it smells, pine and Crystal malt. As it warms there is some citrus peaking out. Great beer, great creamy mouthfeel, no alcohol heat coming thru

The first thing I noticed when I opened this beer was the strong, tropical aroma that burst from the can. It poured a beautiful hazy, burnt irange with a quickly dissipating head. The taste is very similar to the smell, with added levels of caramel and hops. Overall, a very good beer.
