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.

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.
