Served on tap into a tulip glass.
A- Poured a hazy orange color with off-white soapy head with big bubbles that left webbed lacing.
S- Huge pungent grapefruit, piney, and orange citrus notes. Lots of huge juicy hop character in the aroma, very strong and aromatic.
T- Lots of sweet and juicy grapefruit, big piney hops, orange citrus, dankness, and some tropical fruit notes. Very pungent, juicy, and lots of sweetness for a DIPA, but pretty low bitterness for the style.
M-Prickly carbonation, fuller bodied, some warming, semi-dry finish, and slightly syrupy.
O- This is an intensely hoppy and enjoyable DIPA> Very concentrated hoppiness with lots of residual sweetness but not over the top.

Pours an orange colour, vibrant with fair translucency. Head is off-white, large bubbles but no real lacing. Nice, but not wonderful.
Smells mildly hoppy. Decent citric notes, touch of peach, but mostly just light, fruity hops. Bit sharp and a bit one-tracked, but otherwise pleasant.
Taste is brash and hoppy from the start. Quite American - citric, in your face, bit of fruitiness and then all acidity. Bit of English-style malt there to balance it, doesn't quite manage it though, and the American-ness takes over. How historically apt.
Bit of hop pull; decent body but not quite enough to temper those hops.
Nice IPA stylings. Decent palate, just a bit brash and harsh. Could be mellowed out a bit and I wouldn't be complaining.

Part of a four pack purchased while in Jackson recently. This had a bottled date of 7/25/13 and was poured into my beer goblet.
Appearance: Slight haze on a nice copper colored beer. The head rose to about a finger and then settled down to a persistent foam throughout the glass.
Smell: Fruity and floral hops spring out as soon as the bottle is opened. How would this have smelled fresh? A fairly strong caramel note hides in the background.
Taste: The taste follows the smell and is not as intense either. Also I wonder if age is a factor? Muddled hops, nothing too distinct, enough to pick out a variety. The caramel malt is somewhat one dimensional.
Mouthfeel: A certain slick oilyness that is quite nice. The carbonation is lower and soft.
Overall: I really need to try this one fresh, I suspect it may have a lot to offer.
