look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

warm, glowing, golden-tinged amber with a big, off-white head that holds etremely well and leaves tons of lace. nose is a pine resin, grapefruit, pineapple blast and actually carries a nice malt backbone with some sweet caramel, some nice grainy notes and even a bit of character from the yeast. taste is more balanced than i remember, with everything working in chorus. defined tastes that play well together on a medium-full body with a long, hoppy finish and no aftertastes. very very well done. a winner every time. one of the best double ipas on the planet. this review is based off of a bottle which was filled on 11.17.11...
