Had this on 2011-12-27 in Norristown, PA at Capone's

A - Clear orange-straw with one-finger white head that fades quickly. Moderate lacing.

S - Big tropical, pine, citrus, honey, spice. Can smell from 3'. More hop bud fragrance than from the bottle.

T - Tropical fruit, biscuit, caramel, lots of pine and citrus, tannin, pepper, honey sweetness and earthy spice. Drier than a Hopslam and plenty of bitterness in the aftertaste.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Smooth yet prickly and resinous. Very good.

O - The flavor is much like their Union Jack only moreso. I prefer the Union Jack because it is less sweet (and alcohol laden) but this is a fine DIPA.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Golden orange body with a thin white head. Decent lacing.

Nose is sharp citrus hops with a boozy blast.

Flavor is classic West Coast IPA. Malt back, hop forward. Clean and clear. Booze on the finish, it's hard to hide 9.5% ABV.

Mouthfeel is slick and toothstripping.

Overall is excellent! A solid DIPA from a top notch brewery.

Pours a translucent golden orange with a moderate but lasting head and moderate lacing. Powerful citrus hops smell - pretty much the definitive IPA smell, as far as I'm concerned. Tastes of citrus-y hops, with a clean, lightly sweet background that balances it well. If I weren't told of the ABV I would have no idea it was as strong as it is. An excellent 2IPA.

Golden color slightly hazy thick head with good retention and some lacing. Smells amazing citrus and pine aromas. Slightly sweet has a huge hop prescence. Good mouthfeel....Can't tell almost 10% at all. One of the best DIPA's around from one of the best breweries around
