Picked up a 12 oz. at Amityville Superstar Beverage and drank around 50 deg. in a duvel tulip.

A- 3 finger off white and long lasting head topping an amazingly pretty copper body. Nice carbonation, bubbles rising throughout the whole drink.

S- Overwhelming hoppy pine cloud, gotta dive in deeper. Got a tiny bit citrusy lemony malty thing goin on. Meh, its good but i was kinda expectin more from all these crazy reviews.

T- Malty Hops punching you in the back of the eyes! Fadin' to more lemon tartness. The hops stick around and don't go away after more than two sips.

M- Liked the mouth the best but have no idea why. Hops burn in the back corners of your mouth and gets stuck in your sinuses. Makes it a challenge to pick up flavors after a bit but man I love it! Nice carby kind of feel, fun on your tongue. Extremely light for a Dipa, which is good. God I hate when a Dipa's disgustingly syrupy, it grosses me out after a while.

O- A fun Dipa but I don't know if I'd pick it up again. At 6 bucks a single its way to expensive for what it is. Think its a bit syched up too much.

I've had this fresh on tap before and it was one of the best beers I've ever had. Reviewing from this bomber I purchased tonight, best by 12.11.12.

A: Lighter than most IIPA's, golden color with nice head. Excellent retention.

S: Piney hops, fresh herb, citrus.

T: This is the stuff. Big hop flavor with a hint of lemon. Dominated by hops, but there's a little malt backbone there that balances this out. Bitter as hell and destroys your palate, as promised.

M: Pretty light bodied for a IIPA. Carbonation levels are near perfect.

O: Stone has it down. For a mass-produced IIPA, this one is excellent.
