Bottle from the March 1 bottling, reviewed on April 1.
A - I am a sucker for the unfiltered IPA look. Looks like cloudy lemonade, maybe a shade or two darker. Thick white head, pours to about 3 inches, dissipates quite slowly. Leaves moderate amount of thick lacing. Very very nice.
S - smooth citrus, lemon, grapefruit. Also some juicy tropical notes, like mango. Clean and crisp.
T - this is a full spectrum IPA. Leads with juicy tropical fruit, then orange and grapefruit. Lingering around is some bitter piney type notes. The is a clean and quick punch of bitterness to finish and leave with a rich bitter orange peel after taste. Damn near perfect.
M - great. Nice hop oil. It's interesting in that the carbonation is a little hidden at first and then at the end there is a prickle of carbonation. Really nice.
O - certainly a top shelf, private stock, so good you don't want to share it IPA. Ranks second only to heady in my opinion. This is one of those beers that, if you had to pick one beer for the rest of your life, it'd be a front runner.

A - Pours a cloudy light orange with no head even with a strong pour.
S - Heavy citrus and flowery hop aroma. Nice tropical fruits, tangerine, bit earthy, citrus rind, nice light but fruity, hint of malts.
T - Wow super hoppy and tasty with light malt sweetness. Great light pine and lots of tasty bitter grapefruits. Delicious.
M - Medium with a good amount of carb. One of the best mouthfeels I've ever seen in a DIPA
O - This is easily a top 5 all-time IPA for me. So smooth and hoppy and citrusy. This has everything a great DIPA should have. It's great to see another amazing East Coast IPA.

Rare Batch: 212 Bottle: 74 and 77
Very hazy golden amber color with a creamy white head that retains very well. Smell has a lot of oranges and tropical fruit. No real malt coming through; it's hop forward and enticing. Taste has some sweet nectarine character going on along with mangos and grapefruit. Just a touch of light grain comes through in the taste, but it still is very much hop dominant. I seem to pretty much just be getting a heavy use of Citra hops in this, but I don't care if that's wrong, I'm loving the taste of this. Medium bodied and about medium carbonation. I gotta give it up, this is one very nice beer.

A- Bright, hazy straw color with thick white head. Lacing lingers and head begins to slowly dissipate over a minute or two.
S- Overwhelming tropical fruit (passion fruit?) aroma hits the nose as soon as the cap comes off the bottle. Subtle pine aroma with a floral quality. Definitely haven't had an IPA with quite this aroma profile.
T- Taste follows the initial impression from the aroma. Very fruity early on. Some piney notes. Overall, a very drinkable DIPA. Alcohol well masked behind the flavor. My wife liked this, and she is not a beer drinker. Almost too fruity for my tastes, though I'll definitely try this one again. (Assuming I'm fortunate enough to obtain one with the hour long drive and one bottle limit).
M- Well balanced flavor comes off quite light bodied and drinkable with a light carbonation.
O- Excellent DIPA. Lives up to the hype. Worth the time, effort and cost to obtain it? Definitely, though it may have to be a once every few months type of beer for me.
