This is possibly the best single IPA I have had. Color is light orange due to light malting, but the aromas are exceptionally complex. Ballast Sculpin seems more restrained, Stone IPA less intense, but those are the two I would compare. The hops intensity of Wipeout seems higher than its 78 IBU rating, almost like a lightly malted double IPA such as Pliny the Elder.

A - Golden orange and cloudy. Some carbonation

S - Scent is obvious. Its like a blanketing hug of hops. Very fruity and citrusy. They need to make candles that smell like this. Or maybe a perfume. I could smell this all night, but my mouth is watering so a taste is in order!

T - A somewhat sharper hop taste. Sweet and juicy fruityness balances it but not in the way malty-ness does. Really great fruity, citrus hops.

M - Some dry feeling at the end of the sip, but still mouth watering. Not too much carbonation, but far from a smooth drink. Lighter mouth feel. No harsh alcohol.

D - This far exceeded my expectations. Really great beer and you can bet I'll be buying more of this. Super wonderful and highly recommended!

This date on the keg was 8 days old when I brought it home, and it was marvelous. Forget the reviews before September 2012, this is a whole new batch with the hops available during this high tide season. Really bright aromatic hops, and then more hops after that. Pungent would be a good word to describe it. Sweet, some alcohol evident, but still a bubbly refreshing beer that you can have a few of in one session. Nice balance on the malts, it leaves the fresh hops taste something to bite your flavor buds with.
