it's been awhile, but a unfortunately good opportunities to review are few and far between. bought and drank Feb 2010 in Cambridge, MA.
pours a hazy, barely translucent orangey-brown golden -perhaps auburn.. reminds me of a fall day. slightly off-white head is substantial, but various size bubbles, looks not too dense, and dies quickly to leave quite nice lace.
spicy hop is on the nose, a bit of sweetness and some citrus. mostly powered well by what i would describe as a sweet green leafy hop smell.
good balance overall - heavy toward the hop end, of course, but in a great way. good sweetness (maybe a touch of pineapple?) balanced with strong green hop flavor in the middle and strong but not harsh bitter end. bitterness lingers substantially, but isn't uncomfortable. overall a bit too much fruity-sweetness for me, but that's being quite picky.. very good overall.
I generally have an issue with the mouth feel of beers, and I'd have to say this one is quite good. nicely carbonated, not too thick or thin,
I keep coming back, that's what counts! hides 7% very well, just enough lingering flavor to draw you back, but not too much.

Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Served in a pint glass.
A- Pours a light amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains well before settling at an 1/8 inch. Resilient thick sheet of lacing.
S- Sweet smelling hop aroma with plenty of fruit notes like orange and grapefruit. Slightly grassy.
T- Flavor is a bit more malt forward than expected but there's a decent balance between its sweetness and the bitterness of the hops. The bitterness is moderate and doesn't linger long. ABV is hidden pretty well.
M- A tad oily with medium carbonation and a lightish body.
O- I remember liking this more when I wasn't as into beer as I am today. Still a decent IPA that's plenty drinkable.

Served in a pint glass at Estelle's in Boston.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that is for the most part still there. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super frothy lacing as the beer was drank.
Smell: Tangerine, grapefruit, floral bouquet, mango, passion fruit, grass, and a little pine with some caramel and toasted malts in the rear.
Taste: Same as above with some super mild tingly bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Easily drinkable, medium bodied, a little chewy, mild bitterness, and a bit smooth.
Overall: Draft or can. Irs all good. Wish the couple of times I've been to SF to see the Sox that I didn't walk by the brewery. Next time I promise
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a cheater pint from the well crafted can.
A: Gold and hazy, some carbo with a thick rocky two finger head which goes on for days and then near the end settles into a thin disk of a few millimeters.
S: Juicy. Musty grapefruit. Some yeasty spices. White pepper.
T: This is where this beer is shining. Some musty, juicy grapefruit and that white pepper subside to a very gentle pale malt and some bready yeast. Very pleasing and well rounded flavors play and dance, it is not a wave that is predictable. It flits in and out with all these notes randomly.
M: smooth and creamy. That persistent rocky head said it would be this way! bittering is so well balanced that you almost think that it might just pop over to that overtly bitter note but it never ever does.
O: this just became a staple of moderate ABV in the canned selections when I can find it and it's not lawnmower beer time. Great juicy IPA.
