Appears a glowing orange with a head of white that quickly fades. Tiny bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell - holy hop extract, batman! Lots of pine resin there!
Taste is a tad too much with some sweet caramel, and a shit ton of hops that come through as concentrated hop cones with pine, citrus, and cut wood.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, piney, and bitter.

Review from Feb 2012

Poured from a 22 I got from the brewery earlier this year. Should be fresh.

A: Pours a golden, almost amber color with a dense white head. Head slowly fade to just a ring around the exterior and leaves no lacing behind.

S: My first thought as I poured this one was overwhelmingly of fresh wet grassy aromas. As I smell the beer more I get some bubblegum and perhaps a bit of citrus and onion.

T: Taste is not as bitter as I was expecting from this "triple ipa". Flavors are hoppy and the oniony smell is translating into the flavor, which I don't care for. Mid sip grassy flavors are present along with a sweetness from the grain. As the beer warms I can taste more citrus/grapefruit flavors, but the onion taste dominates.

M: Great medium full body with a good amount of carbonation. This beer does not leave much bitterness behind. I've had IPAs that tasted more bitter than this.

O: While this was a well crafted beer with little to no off flavors I was expecting more. As noted above I've had single IPAs that taste more bitter than this and leave a more bitter aftertaste (ex: huma lupa licious). Also, whatever kind of hop gives that onion flavor (summit?) is disgusting. This reminds me of Gubna in that aspect, and I don't enjoy that beer either.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours very cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, orange rind, lemon zest, floral, pine, grass, light honey, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of big hop notes with a light-moderate malt balance; and big strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, orange rind, lemon zest, pine resin, floral, grass, light honey, and floral earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, floral, grass, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome balance and complexity of huge hop flavors; with a light-moderate malt balance and zero cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, lightly slick, and very sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming noticed after the finish; very smooth to sip on for 10%. Overall this is a highly excellent DIPA! Big presence and great complexity of citrus/pine hop flavors with a light-moderate malt balance; and very smooth to sip on for the gravity. A highly enjoyable offering.
