Big thanks to Khazadum for this one...
Poured from the bomber into my tulip. No freshness info, dang. Amber in color with no head. A little hazy but mostly clear.
Smell is quite hoppy but not particularly strong. Spicy hops dominate but there is plenty of sweet, bready malt there as well.
Taste follows smell as with most every DIPA I've had. The hop flavor is there but not as strong as I had hoped. Quite a bit of grapefruit hops covers your palate with each sip leaving behind a healthy amount of bitterness on the sides of my tongue. It's a fairly malty brew but the malt flavor is nice, complementing the hops well.
Mouthfeel is smooth but lacking some carbonation. Each sip leaves a little hop resin on the palate allowing you to sip the beer and enjoy it. Drinkability is pretty damn good with only a slight hint of the high %ABV. Overall a solid DIPA. I'm thinking the bottle I have isn't the freshest example but it was still quite enjoyable.

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.
