Purchased by my fiance for Valentine's Day 2011.
She purchased at Wegmans in Warrington, PA.
The cost was: $8.99/4pk
Enjoyed in DFH Signature Glass.
A - Pours a deep, golden amber color, rather translucent. Pours with a thick, one finger head that quickly dissipates into a creamy covering on top of the beer. A good amount of sticky lacing coats the side of the glass as I enjoy!
S - Awesome citrusy, hoppy smell. One of the best smelling IPA's I've ever had the pleasure of sampling. I have a really good feeling about this already!
T - An awesome combination of cirtusy goodness, very grapefruity, with an unbelievable amount of hoppiness to back it up. Slightly on the sweeter side with a great backbone of maltiness round out this outstanding tasting beer!
M - A far amount of combination gives a nice bite after each sip. A full bodied, moderately heavy beer. Not a session beer due to the high ABV and slight heaviness of the brew.
D - A fantastic tasting beer. A classic IPA taste but packed so full of hops. At 11.5% I know I shouldn't drink more than one or two of these but, damn, these are fantastic! The alcohol, even at this high amount, is phenomenally disguised.
Overall - One of the best tasting DIPA's I've ever laid lips to. A top-5 beer in every sense. A trip to Wegmans to pick up more is definitely in order. Highly recommended!
Follow-up - I can't stop buying this beer! Really, one of my go-to, top-5 beers! I've bought may, many 4-pks since this initial review.

Ruddy orange color, thin head with a little lacing.
Smells of hops, resinous, onion?
Taste is a punch in the face with hops, not much malt to balance it out. Slight sweetness and a little bit of alcohol. Hop taste is citrus, vegetal, some green onion flavors and pine. Bitterness lingers.
Kind of an oily mouthfeel, lightly carbonated
Overall, not one of my favorites, is way unbalanced towards the hops and the smell kind of puts me off. Wouldn't try again in the near future.
