Picked this one up at the Buckeye Beer Engine in Lakewood OH as a to go beer. I didn't locate any date on the bottle.
A: Poured into my GLB Christmas Ale glass. Poured a medium amber color with 1 inch of head. Nice sticky head and great lacing.
S: Very sweet, hops, pine, what I want a Double IPA to smell like.
T: Absolutly perfect. Great hop bitterness, perfectly blanced by malt sweetness. Citrus, pine, alcohol is very hidden.
M: Hard to do any better, creamy, sticky head, smooth finish.
D: When they taste this good I cant stop. Very good.
Summary: I believe that this one is heavily underated. This is a great beer and should be considered in the same level as Southern Tier UnEarthly. This is a must try for DIPA drinkers. I will pick up another bottle soon. UPDATE:: as of 4-20-10 they now sell this is a 4 pack of 12 oz bottles for $16.

Poured from a Hop Stoopid Priced bomber, obviously that means an actually good price!
Pours a copperish color half finger of light tan head, nice lacing
Smell is pineapple, bready and caramel malt, grapefruit, pine, a spicy note aswell. Smells like your average DIPA
Taste is a dose of bready malt followed by a some citrus, grapefruit, lemon, orange, pineapple, pine, spicey hop note, piney bitterness on the finish
Mouthfeel is medium full, carbonation is full and cleaning.
Decent offering here, glad I tried it. It is interesting, opens up malty but then hits you with the hops, kind of unique in that way, wish I knew the date instead of it just saying "Vintage 2014"
