Bottled July 11th. Purchased two weeks ago in a mixed six.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.

a: Clear amber with a half inch tall white head which receded to thin patchy surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Floral and citrus

t: Citrus and dankness up front over a medium biscuit malt base. Bitterness lingers and puckers the inside of the mouth, while alcohol burn develops in the throat at first. Dry to bitter finish.

m; Smooth medium plus, lots of carbonation tingle.

o: A dankish and fairly strong DIPA, rather Stone-like but with slightly more floral/citrusy aspect, though perhaps not as much as Sucks. Definitely one for hopheads to look for. I know I will. Just dunno how I managed to miss this last year.

bottle dated
A: I didn't think I got aggressive with this but I the head was huge and like big puffy clouds and the retention was pretty good and the lacing was magnificent. Color was light copper

S: Smells like a dynamite IPA slightly citrus slightly floral and a hint of booze and almost a little Belgian yeasty smell

T: This beer is old and it is holding up unbelievably well. Has a deep well balanced sweet malty rich hop taste that chases the flavor of citrus before the malts come and level everything out with a beautiful lingering sweetness

M: Medium to slightly thick on the tongue with lively carbonation

O: impressed.....with the age of this the beer is drinking like an IPA half it's age but if you like vivacious carbonation beautiful billowy head and great lacing. With an Imperial that's a little sweeter and very balanced seek it out.
