Had both on tap and bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy light gold with a nice fluffy head and great legs.
The nose is musky and dense. A very nice blend of spice, pine and fruits backed up by a nice malt sweetness. This is not overly sweet, just the right amount with a real backbone. Very well balanced. Feels solid on the mouth, not watery at all.
On tap the funk came through and made me think of a wet dog. Very rich and drinkable just for the novelty of the funk.
A top notch IPA.

This is my favorite IPA that I've ever had; sampled this beaut at the FatHeads on the Southside of Pittsburgh in a pint glass. Could God have crafted 16.9 oz more perfectly? I'm not sure...

A: Glorious- cloudy, but just right for something this powerful. The head was about an inch on this pour, and felt... right.

S: So fruity, earthy, and mellow. Citrus and pine are the predominant notes, but there's others. My early-spring nostrils didn't catch them all, so I'll come back soon to update.

T: Those same citrus and pine notes, plus apple and pineapple (good work, Fatheads). Oh, and I forgot- HOPS. SO MANY HOPS AND I LOVE IT.

M: Great carbonation, but a little (and I mean little) more light than I would normally ask for.

O: Amazing. My all-time favorite beer.

4.29/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a willibecher. This was bottled on 03/19/2014 - 1 month ago.

Appearance: Pours a translucent medium amber/gold (not very hazy) and leaves a finger of white head which fades relatively quickly to a white layer atop the beer. Carbonation can be seen floating to the surface.

Smell: Big resin, malts, some citrus. Pleasant, balanced IPA aroma.

Taste: Taste is much bigger than the smell - big piney hops, resin, bitter citrus rinds, grapefruit, malts. Still pretty balanced, with big hop flavors.

Mouth-feel: Well carbonated with a medium, slightly creamy body. ABV is hidden well. Finishes a tad bitter.

Overall: A nice, delicious IPA with big, tasty hops. Very drinkable. If this were available in my area it would definitely be a go-to.

4.04/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Dull copper with a 1 finger white head. Lacing is soapy

S- Ruby red grapefruit, tangerine for sure, and some melon. Not overly juicy, but clean and inviting.

T- Follows nose, but takes it up a notch. A bouquet of citrus and fruity hops up front, then a wave of doughy malt. At first you think it finishes smooth, but then a fashionably late bitter tone comes nocking at the door late...giving that "west coast" style it claims.

M- Mid body, clean, crisp, no booze.

O- Impressive. Just a really, really well done IPA. I will certainly pick up more next time I have the chance.
