Procured in a trade with the awesome Wuntrikpony. Poured from a bomber into my trusty glass beer mug. Kept the sediment separate and pured that into a smaller glass.
A - Pours a sparkling and clear bright orange with very little head and sticky strands of lacing. Looks delicious.
S - Hops jump out forward with just enough malt sweetness pushing through to give some balance. Piney, floral, grapefruity, and orangey. It's a beautifully bright and sweet hop aroma.
T - Bitterness is intermediate, but is easily shoved aside by the juicy, fruity character of the hops. With a best by date of 05/04/14, this is easily in this beer's flavor wheelhouse, and it shows. There's no Holy cow, this is tasty.
M - Just right for a DIPA; not weighty at all, mild carbonation...yep, just right. Alcohol is not noticeable, so be careful with this 9% ABV beast.
Overall - This is easily up there as one of the best DIPA's I've had. The IBU's are well countered by the floral and fruity hop flavors bursting out of this one. Finding PTE and Heady in my area is out of the question, but I've seen Bear Republic in my local stores, so if I can secure a constant supply, this could become my everyday IPA of choice.

Thank you blind tiger- pours a clear golden amber with a finger and a half of head, good retention and lacing.
Smells incredible- great fresh pine scent. A little base malt.
Tasted amazing also- big pine hop character but not too bitter. Nice balance of flavors but very very hoppy.
Mouthfeel is great- medium body, modestly carbonated. This ones a keeper.
