12 oz bottle at Union Jack Pub and Restaurant (Winchester, VA):
Appeared a very nice rich copper/amber color with a huge white head that had good retention that was reduced into a thin cap.
The aroma, WOW, no real hops to mention, smelled more like a wheat wine, sweet, rich, fruity. I think that the alcohol was hidden very well.
The taste is excellent but if you are a hop head, stay away. The taste is much like the aroma, malted barley sweet with no hops to mention, with some fruit hints and again more like a wheat wine than a DIPA. I don't really recall much alcohol at the beginning of the beer, but much more so as the beer warmed up. Going into this beer, I was aware of the style, so I gave it a lower mark than if I had not since I was trying to compare it to other DIPA's.
Heavy/Thick body, rich and it took me about 90 minutes to finish, very much a sippin' beer.

Where do I start, this beer completely took me by surprise. Its bold but you can tell that just by reading the outside label. Pouring it and taking in it's aromas, my taste buds started salivating immediately. It has a very potent citrus and pine scent with a very enveloping tone of vanilla and herbs giving it a sturdy weight. The actual taste itself lives up to it's aroma completely. It is very rich with a powerful hop flavor! I picked up on some of the finer notes of vanilla, spice, raisin, and a slight mineral flavor all wrapped up in tangy notes of orange and pine. I love this beer. It is truly complex and makes you think about what your drinking. In my opinion, enjoy this one like a fine scotch or bourbon. Just a few sips and I got a head buzz from all those hops! warm it up a little in your glass and your golden. I plan on buying a couple more bottles and letting them age.
