Finally picked up a 12 oz can to give this a try.
Aromas I felt weren't very strong. Mild hops and pine, mild breadiness, some alcohol on the nose.
Taste was in line with aromas, but felt the alcohol presence was very strong (I totally get this a high ABV beer). Just felt the alcohol detracted from the other flavors. Some good bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel was fine.
Overall, I felt the beer was serviceable. But I have no desire to seek it out again.

Amber color with a thick head with good retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of grapefruit, fresh oranges, honey and tropical fruits.
Bold flavor of pine, resin, pineapple, lots of spices, tea bags, peaches, mango, toasted malts and caramels. Very dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with low carbonation. Alcohol of 11% is hard to believe to be that high.
A hoppy punch juice that is later tamed and becomes a quite easy and pleasant ride despite its huge IBU content.

A - Poured a deep orange with a two finger head.
S - Lots of hops and fruit
T - Sweet with citrus, orange, grapefruit and pine and balanced malt.
M - Medium body and a biting finish.
O - This is big on hops and weights in at 11% alcohol so your going notice it.

This beer pours an deep pumpkin orange and is somewhat cloudy. The ecru colored head is large, soft and billowy with nice rings of lacing left behind. The scent is piney with a hint of mint and grass. A subtle earthy background.

The taste begins with a mild caramel sweet flavor that quickly gives way to the dominant hops. The beer turns more bitter with stronger notes of mint. Strong finish of pine and bitter citrus. Very little fruity esters can be found. Mouthfeel is medium to medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. As the beer warms it becomes a bit sweeter, but retains its' hop forward nature.

A well rounded double IPA. If a bit expensive for a four pack.
