Had on tap at the brewery/tasting room.
A: Pours a clear amber with a finger of tan head.
S: Citrus and floral hop aroma. Just a hint of honey.
T: Sweet upfront followed by big hop bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden.
M: Oily body that is cloying.
O: If hop extract was used in this, I think a little less would be beneficial.

Extra received in a trade. Thanks meadhatter! Really cool can label.
Pours a dark orange, with a huge, 3 inch sea-foam like head, and lots of lacing.
Smells like dank herbality (it's a word now), candied pineapple, and grapefruit.
This is fresh, canned on 6/11/14, it would appear. However, the flavors are slightly muddled. It tastes good, it feels like a DIPA, but the flavors don't particularly stand on their own enough. Lots of bitterness, with a good amount of caramel malt, as well. Some citrusy flavors don't get allowed to shine deeply enough- I do pick out candied pineapple and orange, though.
Medium bodied, crisp and highly carbonated mouthfeel. Drinkable, but just sort of boring.
Not bad, but nothing all that exciting. It's best quality is the drinkability, but I wish the flavors were more vibrant.

poor - outstanding poor. Very voluminous, sea foam, frothy poor with a delicious two/three finger head. Excellent cloudy amber appearance. Not really sticky on the lace though.
Nose - Pine/Resin/Grapefruit
Taste - Awesome! Very balanced and just the right amount of IBU's. I've had Heady Topper, which I find a little over the top, but Hoptopus hits the sweet spot. It's a hop heads delight. Excellent beer.
West Coast IPA all the way.... Grapefruit in spades, Pine, Resin; Nice sweet malt in the background. Just what I like.
Man i'm sooo glad to have a local brewery that makes a great west coast DIPA.
