The nose on the beer is piny, with a slight resinous hint. There is also a huge amount of citrus/grapefruit that come through at the end. The beer has a nice dark gold colour with a nice centimeter head. The flavour of the beer is immense; there is a huge bitterness with a great citrus/grapefruit flavour. The fruity flavours are balanced with a sweetness that comes from the honey. These flavours come through initially, but the end of the beer flavours is quite spicy/resiny. There is a great balance between the flavours.
The mouthfeel is a bit thin for a IIPA, but the beer is okay in the drinkability aspect. Since the mouthfeel is a bit thin, the beer is a bit too watery, which takes away from the awesome flavour of the beer.
