Had this on tap at Dark Horse Brewing Co - this is an abbreviated review from my few tasting notes of it.
The scent and taste match up very well to my nose/palate - this is one of the few IPA's that really pushes through both citrus *and*floral on the nose and on the palate. It ends up bitter but with a very clean finish.
A good IPA, I'm not a big IPA fan but I would happily drink this anyday.

A - Dark copper orange, almost bronze, with a slight haziness, moderate head in the pour reduces to a thin but complete white film that delivers pretty massive lacing.
S - Mostly lemon and pine - crisp and clean, but somewhat quiet overall. A subtle note of honey, as well. Overall, the nose is much like a honey lemon throat lozenge, but the most delicious one you've ever had. Initial thought is this could go either way.
T - While the flavor follows the nose, there is not much quiet here. Big hop hits of pine, lemon zest and pith, and a sweet, malty honey core. Lush, almost buttery feel, but with a strong bitter close keeps things snappy.
M - Moderate carbonation and mild drying.
O - A good choice for the hophead aiming to drink a couple down without getting trashed. There are big hop flavors, a nice malt counterpoint, and a reasonable, but not sessionable, ABV.
