Tons of thanks to WarriorSoul for this one. . .
Pretty nifty 22 oz bottle. Its not normal. . .or so it says.
Pours into my trusty stone pint glass. Not as dark as I expected, but still looks amazing. Orange-Amber, semi opaque, substantial amount of bubbles dancing towards the head from the bottom of the glass. Approx ¾ - 1 white head. Definite lacing action, but nothing major. I cant get over this smell. . .
Nose is utterly astounding. . .sweet, fruit-candy, floral, hops. . .I cant stop smelling it. . .
Not as complex as I expected. . . but simply amazing. Sweet, orange-strawberry. Not much that I can sense outside of that. A twang of banana? Very fruity and flowery, I can say that much with confidence. Super-smooth. . .I could drink this all night and still want more. Not the slap-in-the-face hop bomb that I expected. . .but its simply amazing.
9.5% ABV?! You cant be serious!! Alcohol is completely masked in the nose and the mouth. This is one amazing beer. I think I can now appreciate the term session beer.
I think I expected too much from this beer. It wasnt anything I expected it to be, but everything that it is was a pleasant surprise. . .its insanely tasty, and utterly drinkable.

Served on tap at Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. The appearance is unremarkable, but with a solid head and fairly sticky lacing. The smell is tropical fruit--not as pronounced and appealing as, say, White Rajah, but still quite good. The taste consists of mango, orange, and lemon flavors, and the bitterness from the hops just isn't here--imagine, a DIPA without bitterness--instead is sweetness from the citrus hops. The mouthfeel is unusual, but not bad at all--this beer is on the thin side (it could pass for a session beer if not for the high ABV) and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a DIPA well worth trying.

Great beer! There is a serious complexity to this beer. While it has the hop forward properties of any other DIPA's its smooth, and without a lingering bitter finish. There is a bitterness to it, but there is a malt complexity that changes the finish to make it smooth with a hint of sweetness. This beverage got better with every sip.
