Poured into bowtie glass at the Three Floyds Brewpub in Munster, IN.
Appearance: Pour was deep orangish with a slight reddish hue with a beautiful hazy quality. Head was good and quickly dissipated with some lacing on the glass.
Aroma: A godsend. The smell of apricots and mango's. Some piney hop notes. I couldn't get over how wonderful the hops were. Some malty and a trace amount of alcohol.
Taste: This is probably the best IIPA I have eve had. Flavor's of hops and malty. Balance is perfect so that it is not overpowering as many IIPA's can be. Alcohol character is well disguised and I was surprised to later learn that this beer was 9.5% ABV. Bitterness is not lingering. Retro-nasal hops aroma makes burping fun.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is good. A slight drying from the hops but negligible alcohol burn in the finish.
Drinkability: This might be the best thing about the beer. The balance of hops and malt and sweetness and bitterness just flowed. I could have sat and drank this beer all day (I wanted too). I can't say enough about it. Its the best for a reason. It hides lots of aroma, taste and alcohol in the most enjoyable package ever.
I love it.

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.
