So, I was at my local bottle shop and they had this in their pick six section. Oven been wanting to try it for a while now. Here it goes:
Appearance: reddish copper. Hazy with a off white head. Very heavy lacing on the glass. Really nice
Smell:citrus. Grapefruit, orange, and maybe some pine in there.
Taste: the best way I can describe it is like this: starts with the citrus hops, then a mellow honey taste. All of a sudden, the bitterness come crashing through. Wow! It's very crazy. I like it
Mouthfeel: almost stout like. Thick. But at the same time if can drink this on the deck in the summer. It's very pleasing to the senses
Overall: I like it a lot! It's not a beer I could drink a few of in one night, but a few bottles here and there. Very tasty!

A: Radiant amber/maple syrup/orange body, little to medium smooth off-white head, hazy and a bit transparent (not really)
S: Definitely has a nice, elegant, honey presence….pineapple, citrus, orange, some resin & caramel malt….grapefruit/tropical fruit
T: Nicely balanced: fruit (tropical/grapefruit), citrusy hops, honey, orange, lime, caramel malt, pineapple, and mango… pine bitterness…I found this to be fairly smooth considering the ABV
O: Got this guy from my good friend Kenny Leeper…a good friend indeed…and will have to concur with his opinion that this guy right here puts up a good fight against Hopslam: extravagant; mouthwatering; juicy…just a tasty beverage I would gladly have again - Thank you Sir

Bottle poured into dogfish spiegelau glass. Bottle was extra included in trade from WCW - awesome!
A - a deep rich red amber honey. Almost maple syrup color with no transparency.
S - smells like a slightly more floral version of 120 minute.
T - again very reminiscent of 120 minute. Just half the ABV.
M - fairly full bodied.
O - glad I got to try this!

Appearance is a deep amber, copper with minimal head.
Smell. Honey, hops.
Pours nicely in a tulip glass with minimal lacing. Lots of sediment.
Smooth honey taste with hint of banana and very slight spice, hops, then alcohol presence on the back.
Great DIPA, right up there on the favorite list. Hopslam is a second to this for me.
