So many strains of hops, this one is a great one! Taste comes off similar to 90min from dogfish head but more florally. Very very smooth easy drinking. hides the high ABV very well. Not my favorite IPA but one I would definitely get again. Great

Considering how many hops are mixed into this, it's really freaking good.

Normally, I'm a fan of the DIPA style. This one seems a bit unbalanced, which could because we're trying it literally on it's Best By date of 3/15/15.

Look-Color is a crystal clear amber, lots of bubbles in the beer, pours two fingers of white head that leaves wonderful lacing as it dissipates.
Smell- Aroma is actually pretty boozy, some pine oil and tropical fruit notes in there too.
Taste-Very fruity, apples, pears, some citrus notes, nice kick of pine, just slight touch of bitterness in the finish.
Feel- super juicy, creamy, mediium carbonation.
Overall- very good beer, and well named, an excellent representative of the style.
