Had this on-tap in a pint glass at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: great orange hue with plenty of haze and a finger of creamy ivory foam. Nice!

Smell: rich malt with very fresh, citrusy hops. Quite good indeed.

Taste: strong malt flavor with a rich and delicious citrus hop character throughout. Bitterness is quite balanced for a beer of this much hop character. Amazingly smooth for a beer of this strength.

Mouthfeel: medium-thick body with a moderate carbonation and a good creaminess. Good stuff.

Overall: hugely drinkable for an IPA of this strength, both in hoppiness and ABV. Wonderful.

Serving type: on-tap

32oz growler (flip top) fill, served in pint glass

A - pours with a very thin layer of loose cream colored foam. the beer is a bit hazy (chill? hops?) dark gold/orange in color.

S - very bright grapefruit, pineapple. nicely balanced grainy sweetness with a hint of caramel.

T - once the first initial rush of hop bitterness dies down, citrus (pineapple, mango) lead way to some more floral hop notes. balanced a bit by sweetness through the back, but this is a big bitter beast.

M - carbonation is light (growler fill?), nicely full bodied, sticky yet wet and clingy. hardly any alcohol burn.

O - solid DIPA, seems a bit dangerous at 10% and no heat.

Serving type: growler

Pint and growler purchased @ Chuck's 85th, Ballard, Seattle. Pint--$4.00. Growler--$15.00. Half Growler--$7.50. Thin mild lace wispy white head. Cloudy bright orange gold color. Aromatic floral West Coast big but not overpowering hop front. Surprisingly mellow medium textured balanced mild sweet light caramel herbal body. Balanced hop spice tasty clean bitter hint satisfying rich IPA end. Very smooth and mellow for it's 10% ABV and 80 Ibu's. Big and Tasty! (4.25 / 5.0)

Enjoyed on tap on 8/25/12.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark orange with thick white head that retained pretty well.

Smell: The nose on this one is great. Tons of citrus and tropical aromas along with a more subtle grassy scent. Really potent and jumping out of the glass. Smells like a big DIPA.

Taste: Follows the nose with fresh orange, grapefruit, and other tropical fruits. Hops don't destroy the palate because of a considerable pale malt presence. Finishes with moderate bitterness that gives some more earthy, resiny hop flavors.

Mouthfeel: A full-body and rich. Would like a bit more of drinkability.

Overall: I've had this one a couple of times now and really think it rivals any DIPA in the country. Really looking forward to canning.

Serving type: on-tap
