On tap at O'Reilly's Pub in Harrisburg, PA on 8/11/11.
A - Crystal clear light amber liquid with a golden hue and a slim bubbly white head that reduced to a patchy film and produced some spiderweb-like lacing around the glass.
S - Aroma is quite dank with a hint of cat pee, sweet caramel malt and faint bready notes, as well as mild skunk and citrus fruit. Smells like a hippie that just pissed his pants... but in a good way, if you can possibly imagine a urine character as a "good thing".
T - Sweet but juicy and dank with a touch of cat pee among the leafy green tea-like (or herb-like) hops. Sweet caramel malt balances the hops quite a bit. This isn't an overly bitter IPA, mind you, but the hop character is bold and unrelenting.
M - Light bodied with a faily oily texture and modest carbonation. Bitterness doesn't linger very long on the palate at all. Instead, the finish is somewhat bittersweet and is rather kind to the palate.
D - I really enjoyed this one, surprisingly. Gotta love those dank-ass IPAs. Here is another one to add to the list! X-114 boasts a lot of hop character without the intense palate-wrecking bitterness.

A: copper brown. Plenty of lace that sticks. Inch head that dissipates pretty quickly.
S: fresh, citrusy, and floral. Hops.
T: moderate bitterness. Rounded pretty well. Grapefruit and citrusy with bitterness that lasts.
M: pretty high carbonation. Nothing wrong here. Not watery or too light.
O: not my favorite ipa but its definitely not the worst. Not too bitter. A more rounded ipa. Don't regret getting it that's for sure.
