This review is for the 2012 version. If there’s an end-of-days then this wouldn’t be a bad choice to go out drinking!
This pours a clear, golden yellow with nice foam. There’s a big piney-grassy aroma that surrounds the olfactory senses. Flavor is bitter, bitter, bitter. Tongue-curling grassy hops scrape the taste buds off and cut through all other flavors. This is a good one for those who like palate-wrecking DIPAs. Mmmmm!
Postscript: the 2013 version is just as incredible!

Crystal clear, deep orange colored beer. Nice head. Decent retention. Fizzy ring remains throughout. Great lacing.
Oh my god! Insanely incredible hop aroma! Tons of tropical fruit. Specifically mango. Some sweet malt, but none of that burnt sugar aroma you get from some double IPAs.
Incredible flavor. More complex and malty than the aroma leads on, but still very, very hoppy. And not overly bitter. Slight alcohol, yet not what you'd expect from 9.3 ABV.
Medium bodied. Perfect carbonation. Lingering bitter, yet wet finish.
This is an incredible beer I received from a trader who advised me to "drink it fresh." I'm glad I did! The hop flavor and aroma was an incredible experience!
