Have had it several times, but basing this review on the HopArt I had on tap at Gene's yesterday -
This beer looks great (to me, at least) in the glass: a nice, hazy/cloudy deep orange - light copper; sudsy head that leaves a fair amount of lace on the glass. Aroma is dominated by citrusy / floral hops, with touches of fresh cut grass. Taste is of grapefruit peel, a little resin, very fresh, herby / spicy, a touch of caramel malt is there, too. Mouthfeel is about medium-bodied (maybe a little on the lighter side of medium), with great carbonation. Drinkability is pretty good for an IPA of this strength - pretty refreshing for 7.7%. This is great stuff - one of my favorite IPAs - glad I can get it fresh at the local bars or growler at the Chas Beer Exchange!

3.58/5 rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Hazy, golden-orange color with one finger of head that fades slowly with thick lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malt, floral hops, some grassy earthyness, a little pine
Taste: Just a flash of creamy malt sweetness, then a rush of strong, piney bitterness. Some sweetness reappears on the the back end, but that trails off in the lingering, bitter finish. There is a definite green hop, slightly harsh quality to the finish which boarders on unpleasant.
The Rest: A decent IPA lacking in the balance department. Not enough else going on to balance out the massive hop bill. Drinkablity suffers a bit from the harsh finish as well.
Serving type: bottle
