Well, it does have a very nice apperance on the pour with enormous jiggly spongey head, plenty of lace, hazy golden color. Nose is somehow light and weak with melon aromas and light pine. Low carbonation on the palate, really mild flavors, fruit rind, some malt, and more melon on the finish. Hides the alcohol really well but I'm struggling to see why I should have my liver labor through this high octane disappointment.

3.35/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Pours with a head of about two and a half fingers. Golden, glowing orange color. On the lower side of active carbonation. Sticky lacing left behind at each level.
Smell: Grainy caramel hits first. Straw with some heavier saturated citrus fruits shows up on the body. The back end sweetens up a bit with some spiciness.
Taste: Caramel malts greet the palate. Pine and heavy citrus hop profile jumps the drinker. Grainy finish with some lighter, spiced notes which are pretty interesting.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is low. Dry finish with some malt sweetness.
Overall: A pretty middle of the road DIPA. Nothing really stands out, too malt forward. Just feels like they didn't take any risks making this beer.

Poured slightly chilled in hotel glass at the North American Patristics Society conference, 2014, Hyatt Chicago.
A: semiclear amber, good carbonation, very robust, creamy head
S: luscious hop aroma; grass, a bit of pine; lingers nicely; v. inviting
T: grainy, dry, very bitter flavor; booze comes through nicely; needs to be sweeter for the style
M: a bit rough in the mouth
I don't plan to return to this beer; there are much better IIPAs out there.
