Was grateful to have had this beer. The hops are beautiful in the aroma and in the taste. What's even better is how the hop profile changes as you drink this. The front is of great hops; grapefruit and pine. The hops quickly fades and becomes quite mellow on the finish. The honey comes through after, but its not as prevalent as I hoped.

Wow.... This has got to be one of my favorite DIPAs. Thank you Rogee for a bottle!

Bottle (dated 2/10/2012) poured into my snifter

A: half a finger head, nice nice lacing, a bit lighter in color than most DIPAs I had

S: alll hops =) a bit of sweetness coming through. Your typical DIPA smell (good)

T: So so so so well balanced for such a hoppy bitter high ABV beer. Very Very sweet. I wish it was a bit less sweet, but I also have to say that the sweetness makes the beer. Hoppy as hell. Very long after taste (as expected). I love this beer. I do NOT taste the alcohol at all.

M: Low carbonation, smooth, but I had better "feel" DIPAs than this. But, it's still good.

O: I love this. As mentioned above, definitely my top 5 DIPAs. Highly recommended.

M-medium body and smooth

O-incredible. maybe the best beer I've ever had
