Reviewed from notes - on-tap at the Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier in late February.
Beer pours a beautiful hazy yellow-orange with a nice white head. The appearance makes me think of citrus fruit for some reason, and really is the perfect color for a DIPA. Smell is incredible - I get a blast of citrus fruits and amazing hops. The taste follows suit, it's really like a party in my mouth, bright citrus flavors take the lead, but this is incredibly balanced and easy to drink for a DIPA. Mouthfeel is pretty much perfect, medium-bodied with excellent carbonation a bit of tingling and even some stickiness. Overall, this really might be my favorite beer ever. I've had it countless times, but drinking it on tap is the way that this beer needs to be consumed. Some of the growlers have held up really well, others not so much, but it would only get this score from me on tap. When served straight from this tap, this beer deserves a perfect 5.0 score, the best score I've ever given to a beer on BA.

Pour is a hazy golden yellow with tons of tight white head. Nose is huge, tons of bitter grapefruit with notes of pine and hop resin. Taste is more balanced, notes of grain and some underlying sweet malt. Extremely clean with no sugars, tons of hop punch. Strong grapefruit and pine with a touch of resin. Bitterness is present but well integrated through the soft well carbonated finish. Body is delicate and light. Great stuff.

A: Very hazy and yellow/orange in color. Great two finger foamy head that continues to linger for awhile.
S: Very fruity and piney upfront with citrus and tropical notes. .
T: Nicely dry and refreshing. Solid bitterness throughout but not harsh or overpowering. Citrus with a bit of lemon some mango.
M: Medium carbonation. Nicely dry and crisp. Very refreshing.
O: A little over-hyped but really solid and something I would always drink. Reminds me of Lunch.
