This beer is just a malty mess, tastes skunked but I can't find a bottling date. I hope the rest of their beers aren't so disappointing.
Mouthfeel: Flat and unimpressive.
Smell: Indistinguishable from any unbalanced malty IPA
Taste: No direction way too many english hops
Overall: Wish I looked up the beer before buying it.

Note to self: Never again go to the craft beer shop without the iPhone so that you can check BeerAdvocate reviews before trying something new. Why did I buy this? There's nothing distinctive, nothing interesting, no complexity, not much flavor. It's not that it's bad - grocery store beer isn't "bad" - it's just not much of anything. A DIPA is supposed the be the product of a generous bounty of hops and malts. Where did they all go in this one? They're nowhere to be found.

Appearance - Pours 1 inch of fluffy, off-white foam, which has good staying power. Reduces slowly to 1cm. Color is orange and translucent, but not crystal clear. Visible carbonation.
Smell - Tropical fruit, citrus, floral. I would have liked more smell; maybe the bottle is a little older and it has faded? Not bad, but too subtle... Like you really have to hunt for it.
Taste - The taste starts out quite nice. Floral hop taste is front and center, but quickly yields to an awful, astringent flavor akin to sucking on a tea bag. And it lingers. It is a form of harsh bitterness that is very unpleasant.
Mouthfeel - No problems. Medium body, no noticeable alcohol, fair carbonation.
Overall: This beer has taste issues. It looks great in the glass, but the smell falters, until the taste completely falls through. A disappointment.
