look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Reasonably fresh bottle with best by date of 7/2/14.
Full on hop aroma with hop oil, citrus, grass, grass.
One inch head and quite clear with amber (brown) body. Decent lacing.
Full hop flavor resembling the aroma with a stronger hop oil presence leaving a bit of distaste for my buds, but it isn't overwhelming or dominating thus allowing the other more enjoyable flavor to show forth. Solid malt body that balances and blends well.
Pretty big and quite enjoyable body with enough carbonation to accent the hops nicely and working well with the richness of the drink.
A solid DIPA. Too much hop oil and probably not quite as complex hop flavors as others. But this one drinks really nicely.
