Randomly found at a store, figured I'd give it a try. Enjoy by 6/27/14
Pours a smaller fizzy head that barely covers the beer, little lacing, quite clear coppery tan orange color.
Nose is fairly light all around, some hops with a little candied orange peel note, touch grassy hop, a little toasty sweetish candy malt. Very light
Taste brings some sweet malts, a little copper toasty malt reddish malt note, a little candy syrupy like note as well, caramel candies but not very caramelized. Then hops, again light, little grassy earthy note, some candied orange peel, mild fruity note, etc. Med bitterness at first, that increases a bit on the back end. Finish attempts to dry and some booze warmth shines through, mild estery note as well, fruity, with bit more earthy hops, spicy hop like, little sticky too.
Mouth is med bod, little heavier and syrupy feeling, decent carb, some warming booze esp on the finish.
Overall meh, quite light all around, more of the sweet candy malts than the hops coming through. Nothing really going on with it.

Pretty good looking, golden in color, once the head settled down it kept about a quarter inch on top and left nice lace.
Flavor and aroma are a nice blend of hoppy, fruity, and malty. The hops have a fruity, earthy quality and bitterness is soft. The malt backbone is ample and gives a semblence of balance not usually associated with the IIPA style. I had to do a double-take when I saw 9% because it's not very evident.
Body is surprisingly thick and chewy, with a smooth carbonation. Overall it's a well done and enjoyable beer that I'll certainly buy again.

4.29/5 rDev +12%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Deep, golden yellow body with a relatively thin yet creamy and sticky white head. Huge pine and citrus hop aroma that carries some caramel and toasted grain notes. Juicy flavor mixture of lightly sweet malt sugars and a smooth yet zesty hop bitterness on the tongue. Medium-heavy mouthfeel; wet and slick.
A very well-rounded DIPA exuding citrus aromas and flavors around a smooth malt background and tempered with a strong yet not overpowering hop zing. Nicely balanced throughout and presents nice depth and complexity from all aspects. A very nice find...
