From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #58 (November 2011):

LOOK: Hazed peach

SMELL: Herbal, minty, papaya, mango, doughy, alcohol

TASTE: Hoppy, tobacco, herbal, leafy, earthy, grassy, pulling, astringent, stone fruit, earthy, woody

We're not dead yet, actually just getting our hop fix. Excessive hopping is noticed. The palate does not get devastated by the bitterness, but it does get taken over by the massive amount of hop flavor, so much so that you should not expect to taste much after knocking this one back. A worthy hop bomb.

"Enjoy me before" date of Feb. 2015, purchased at Sam's in Durham, NC.

This excellent brew deserves more love, so though I had sworn off reviewing I had to add a quick note:

Wonderful full-bodied IPA with complex array of notes and one of the best finishes of any beer I have ever had. One of those beers that is best from mid-palate to the finish. Highly recommended.
