From 02/11/14 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing a growler of this; thanks Ross, big Want of mine. Poured into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a murky, amber-brown color with one inch of off white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, pine hops, lemon zest, light floral notes, and some light earthy notes. Nice nose, lots of citrus and fruit. Liking the nose a lot.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, fruity malts, light pine hops, earthy notes, bread, grains, spice, and yeast. Taste is good but seems less hoppy than the nose; a step down for me.

m - Medium body and very little carbonation. No bitterness but growler seems to have lost some carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a DIPA that is quite good, though the taste wasn't as hoppy as I was hoping for. Easy to drink, but I'd like to try it again, preferably on tap. Worth seeking out.

EDIT: 04/16/14: Had another growler of this and it was much better. Awesome piney and citrusy nose which was great. Bumping nose up to a 4.5

Fresh Growler poured into a Mason Jar.

-Appearance was gorgeous. A copper and golden amber, clear. With a nice two inch head. Excellent lacing and retention. Looks almost thick.
-Smell is fantastic, just what you want out of a Double IPA. Citrusy, Hoppy, Grapefruit, Piney.
-Taste is delicious, not overly bitter hops, Orange peal, Grapefruit, Pine. Barely notice the 8.9%, which if you ask me is the truly amazing part of this beer.
-Mouthfeel has good carbonation and in fact is slightly chewy for the style (which I do enjoy). Finishes sweet , clean and dry.

-Overall a fantastic beer. I had heard it was good and this one really lived up the expectations. This one is right there with all of the other top Double IPA's I've had. I believe the higher ABV% is what really sets it apart for me.
