This beer is the one beer that our brewers and I would take to that mythical deserted island if we could only bring one Marshall Wharf beer. Huge malt backbone matched with huge amounts of hops.

The beer is bright golden with a thick, light tan head. Aromas of pine, sap, alcohol, malt, a touch of spice. Big hoppy flavor amid a robust malt body. Sticky on the palate with warming alcohol heat. Truly, a malt and hops monster, as described. Not my stylistic preference. Ok...

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, brownish-gold in color, clear

Smell: pithy citrus rind

Taste: very citrusy: peaches, tangerines, and other tropical fruit hops

Mouthfeel: medium body, sweet with a bitter end, high carbonation

Overall: An enjoyable, fruity IPA. Many layers of citrus flavors make this a pleasure to drink. If it were not for the high ABV, I could have several.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip, canned 7/5/14. Pours a reddish orange, with a two inch off white head that leaves plenty of lace.

Smell is very aggressive apricot, tangerine, caramel, hard candy, fresh cut grass, pine, and grapefruit.

The taste follows the nose apricot and caramel start, with cut grass, hard candy, and piney grapefruit deliver in the lingering finish.

Body is large, plenty of carbonation for a beer of this heft, a touch dry, and drinkable for the hop heads of the world.

This a very nice and different DIPA, one that gets more complicated as it gets closer to room temp.
