From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue II:

Interesting name, we were waiting for this bottle to transform into a hopback or a whirlpool, but nothing happened. Crystal clear, weathered golden color. A head retention that is hard to beat, ample frothing and solid clinging action going on here. Clean floral aroma, thick hopping of wild flowers, pine, faint tobacco, evergreen and a mildly fruity nose. Creamy medium body with a modest yet deep smooth carbonation. Insane amounts of hop flavor, bitterness is deep but not overly sharp or harsh at all. Bitter herbal, woody and with an almost kale-like and even turnip green flavor rides under the pungency of the bitterness. Small but pronounced nugget of maltiness in the middle, a little sweet and toasty but the hops smack it back down. The continued onslaught of hops does not let up at all from sip to sip.

For what the style is (DIPA) it certainly hits the mark. Big, bold, hoppy, with a clean palate to let the hops rule. Malt is big enough to be the base but does not intrude too much. Alcohol is hidden from the massive hopping as well. A killer beer for the hophead in you.
