The beer is murky and brownish in color. There's a decent off white head to the beer with some decent retention.
More of a malty smell here with little touches of sweetness and notes of prunes and currants. Not too terribly potent but apparent none the less.
Taste and Mouthfeel:
This beer oddly reminds me or raisin bran which is a cereal I enjoy quite a bit. Up front there's some semi sweet, but rich malts lending a smooth mouthfeel to the beer with just a sting of hop bitterness. These flavors soon transfer to more of a sun dried raisin flavor. The finish is pretty clean and there are some minor apricot notes in to the aftertaste.
It's about as drinkable as any other IPA really. There's really nothing especially good or bad about this brew.
This beer seems to get quite a bit of hype in my opinion but I think it's just kind of your average good IPA. A good selection none the less.

From a bottle into a pilsner glass. Bought this bottle yesterday couldn't wait to crack it.
A: deep gold with a burnt orange hue. Not much light penetration. Little head and no lace to speak of. I can see the carbonation rising rapidly in the glass.
S: pungent hops with light citrus aroma on the tail end.
T: bitter and hoppy from start to finish. The citrus smell carries over to lemon notes mixed with those hops.
M: fantastically smooth for such a bitter bomb in flavor. I could drink this all day.
O: I find myself wondering how I waited so long to pick this up and give it a try. If you an IPA/DIPA drinker this is a must try.
