I had this on tap so my review will be more brief since it was a few hours ago.
Looks a very clear amber color with good head. Smell is hops but nothing too overwhelming and not overtly fruity. Taste was very well rounded with malt perfectly complimenting the hops flavor. Bitterness wasn't overwhelming either.
At 10% alcohol this went down super easy. One of the smoothest and best IPA's I've had.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip shaped glass. Dated 1/10/14 so it's exactly two months old. I'm guessing most will say i need to have it fresher but this is the best i can do here in New Hampshire.
I thought it presented almost perfectly, creamy off-white 3/4 head, some lacing as i go. Hazy, dense copper color, very pretty. The smell is good but not what drives the beer, musty & funky with a hint of sweetness. The taste is bitter and hoppy, no real fruit presence. Not sure if it's the honey that slightly offsets the bitterness but it works non-the-less. Overall, this a bubbly, carbonated, hoppy happy beer. Their isn't even a slight hint that it's 10%, no boozy taste or smell. Cheers.
