Got this after reading the review in Zymurgy Mag.
A - Deep golden color. Mostly clear with lots of white head and strong lacing.
S - Extra strong hop fragrance with lots of herbal and resiny tones. Could smell it before I picked it up. Almost perfume like from the magnitude of aromatics.
T - Full flavored with a pungent hop character that has resin, herb, and some fruit with alcohol and malt to round it out. Light bitterness for such high IBUs but that is due to the larger amount of late additions and strong maltiness.
M - Strong mouth-feel with over the top carbonation. Lingering finish with hops, malt, and alcohol.
Overall, a solid IIPA. Good aroma, flavor, feel, appearance, but doesn't have my much preferred citrus character usually in an iipa. This brew isn't a light beer but if you like big, resiny, and complex beer I'd recommended it.
