4.83/5  rDev +11%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle date: 2/10/2011
Aggressive pour into the bottom of my 2011 21st Ammendment Chalice.
Nice slightly golden head retains well dark golden clear appearance.
Flowery, smooth, citrus flavors blend well. Very well balanced for a DIPA.
This is an exceptional DIPA and clearly one of my favorites. Check their website for more detailed notes. I don't know why people bother to state the obvious when reviewing beers.
Edit 6/28/11:
Picked up a bottle at University Village QFC not dated but 2010 stamped on the cap.
Really? 2010? OK the price is right and I roll the dice.
Conclusion is "fresh" doesn't matter at least for the short haul. This beer is as delicious as any Double Jack that I have enjoyed.
Still one of my favorites - fresh or not so fresh.

4.73/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

This one pours a beautiful semi-cloudy rich blonde color with a luxuriant, long lived off white head that settles to damn slow to wait! It appears to be leaving a thick layer of foam with varied bubbles reminiscent of a slice of bread with lacing to match. The head is so thick you could eat it with a spoon.

The nose is a sharp citrus-pine hop that dominates the subdued malt sweetness that floats just below the surface. The nose could be stronger, although I have no idea how they would do so without altering the flavor in a negative fashion.

The taste is a near perfect example of an IPA. The bitterness is floating on the malt in near perfect balance. There are notes of pine, butter, bread and a tinge of bourbon and all in submission to the fine hopping that defines this IPA.

The mouthfeel is very rich and matches the visual of the foam head that is just not going away.

Overall this is almost a perfect IPA and a perfect example of an American IPA. I Will be drinking this one again. And I would probably be reluctant to share it so I could keep it all to myself!

Muwahahahaha!
