Thanks to buffs9 for this bottle.
A: Pours a transparent deep golden honey color with about one finger of pure white head. There is a bit of lacing left on the glass as it drinks.
S: I'm picking up tropical fruits, grapefruit, some spice, some alcohol, and a nice malt backbone. This beer smells very nice, minus the alcohol presence.
T: The taste is just like it smells. It's well balanced, but the booze is a little off putting for me.
M: Medium bodied beer. Nothing too special.
O: I really wish this beer would hide the booze a bit better. I'm not overly impressed with this brew.

Had this on 2011-12-29 in Columbia, PA
A - Hazy amber-orange with a 2.5 finger white head into a Duvel glass. Nice ringed lacing. It's a little darker orange than the Odell IPA
S - Interesting mix of citrus flesh, stone fruit, bread and ripe plantain. I like the smell of the Odell IPA more than this. This has a pleasant but not strong aroma.
T - Punch of tart citrus, rich white bread, mint, orange juice and grapefruit rind. Long lasting touch of sweetness and lingering bitterness. I like the initial flavor of their IPA more than this but I like the end and aftertaste of this one more. This has a great bright and bitter citrus finish. Toss-up rating-wise.
M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation. Thick, creamy, resinous and nicely prickly.
O - Very fine. It was interesting to compare it side-by-side to the Odell IPA and a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (as a benchmark). I liked this one the best. I rate it just a shade below my favorite DIPAs but would love to have a glass of this anytime, anywhere.

Best by march 2012. This is a fresh bottle, woohoo!!!!
Appearance: Pours a slightly amber-straw color. More on the straw side. White head that dissipates quickly. Poor lacing.
Smell: Hop forward for sure!!! A little pine, citrus, and floral. Good balance of hops for a DIPA. Malt backbone is really just there to provide a good base for the hops.
Taste: Surprisingly mellow. Its not too bitter. Th emalt backbone and the hop bitterness leave a nice sweetness in the taste. Very good.
Mouthfeel: As stated under the state portion this brew is very nice to drink. Bitterness is there but it isn't tounge scorching and palate destroying. Very smooth.
Overall: If you can get a fresh bottle then pick it up! It seems like forever since I've had a fresh bottle. If the best by date is within the next two months this one isn't fresh enough imo. You need at least 2 1/2 months before the freshness date to get the aroma from the dry hopping.

Full and rich flavor with the malt and hops duking it out. A great event to partake of. Certainly one of the more drinkable big IPAs. A bright flavor that is just plain flowery with a modest bitterness. Great hop aromas. The rich and sweet maltiness mellows the abundance of hops and balances the bitter tang. So strong that it has a sharp flavor just from the alcohol, but the complexity is sensational.
A little chill haze poured from the 12 oz bottle. Lovely light amber rather than the usual DIPA orange cast. Man, what an aroma with every sip!
Tasted earlier in 2011 and I liked it a lot. This bottle is dated 9/1/11. I guess this puts me over 2000 on the BA scale, and thanks for all the fun tasting and reviewing.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter
Pours a bright orange with a fluffy ecru cap that settles to a thin powdered sugar coating with some sporatic bubbles. Dots and lines of lace.
The aroma is extremely pleasing. Soft tropical fruit, papaya and mango, delicious juicy fruit. A bit of ethanol stings the nostrils while some toasted biscuit malt holds down the back end.
The flavor profile follows the nose. Juicy tropical fruit with lightly toasted biscuit malt in good balance. A sizeable dose of bitterness looms large in the finish and really makes this guy what it is.
Medium feel with mild carbonation and a lingering finish of bitterness, ethanol and juicy tropical fruit.
This is a nice dipa. I love the juicy fruit flavors and the non-bashful booziness. This guy separates itself from the rest with a nice nose/flavor profile, which makes this a winner in my book.
