Poured from the bottle into my Sam Adams Sensory glass. It poured a beautiful mid amber in color, and you can see right through it.
Smell - The aroma from this beer is wonderful. I first pick up that great grapefruit, pine, citrus. The nose is very crisp.
Taste - Exactly just like the nose...this beer definitely does not let you down. This is a very well balance DIPA, between the hops with a strong malt backbone, this beer has quickly become one of my favorite american DIPA's, right next to 90 Minute and Hop Stoopid. Very crisp and citrus/grapefruit flavors coming across my palate, this is a delicious beer.
Mouthfeel - medium and kind of sticky, it's delightful.
Overall - This is one hell of a DIPA, and I could certainly drink the hell out of it. I would never have known it's a 8.2% abv beer. Very Drinkable and I'll be buying more.

While still better than the majority of mass-produces beer, this is a representation of the style I am not fond of. It's all hops with just a bit of malt sweetness before the hops take over.
Pine-y resins of hops comes through on the pour, with a pale wheat-straw colour giving up a decent-sized head that dissipated quickly, leaving very little lacing. The taste was as I described above - you get a malty sweetness on the tongue that quickly gives way to the 4 varieties of hops used in this brew. This BA cannot taste any hidden notes of fruits. Finish is very dry & bitter, and this lingers for quite a while on the palate. Mouthfeel is decent, a little thick & with good carbonation.
Overall, not a favourite of mine.
