Very fresh: Just hit the stores
A - Honey amber with a massive 3 fingers of off-white head with sparkling 3d lacing down the side of the glass.
S - A glass of crushed hop pellets, sharp pine, dirty citrus, hints crackery malts, floral potpourri.
T - Pungent citrus and spicy hops burst on to the palate. Dank green hops just dominate everything in it's path. As it warms up, orange and floral notes come out of the generic green hop attack. Sweet orange rind, spearmint, and light caramel undertones come out with notions of alcohol toward the end. The finish is bitter with some some resinous sweetness and perfumey alcohol. Fairly dry for the ABV.
M - Medium body, very bitter, semi astringent, lushy feel, but syrupy at times.
If you've ever chewed on a hop pellet than you know what this beer tastes like. It's just an onslaught of potpourri hops of all kind, just clashing together all at once.
Any novice brewer can dump a truck load of hops in a beer but there is something to be said about brewing a 10.10ABV beer and not coming out with a sweet boozy malt bomb. All said, this is just a hop overload that has no layering or flavor distinction. Congratulations on being the hoppiest DIPA.
Edit: just ordered a West Coast IPA on tap from a local establishment and it tasted so off that I went and told them the taps must be dirty. They told me me they accidentally gave me Green Bullet instead. Talk about a blind taste test!

Good DIPA. Pours a hazy orange with a good size off white head into a pint glass. Head retention is good and there is plenty of thick lacing on the glass.
Aroma is ok, some citrus hops but not that pronounced in such a strong beer.
Taste is pretty good. Plenty of citrus hops with a little pine resin in the finish. There is some maltiness as a balance but this is a hop forward beer.
Mouthfeel is not all that rich for a high octane beer. It is crisp, the bitterness is good and the alcohol is not apparent.
Good strong DIPA. There are better ones out there but this is pretty good.
