Just came to SC. Very fresh.
Pours a golden/amber color. Darker than yellow but not quite red, my favorite look for a IIPA. Looks pretty clear, and has a giant head, that lasts throughout the entire drink. Laces the side of the glass every time I raise it for a drink. The smell is a bit piney and citrusy, with some fruity, spicy, earthy notes in the background. You get a bit of the alcohol off and on while you drink. The taste is great. A bit of citrus peel with some bitter piney tastes. From all that I heard about the bitterness, I expected this to be unbearable, but I think it is amazing. As it warms, you get a bit more alcohol sweetness, but it definitely is not overpowering. The hoppiness is really great, you get some of the mouth-puckering bitterness and it finishes. Eventually, you start to feel like you're just swallowing hops, which is definitely not a bad thing in my opinion. I was surprised at how easily I could drink this beer. Honestly, the alcohol got to me quicker than I expected, but I finished it and wished I could keep up the hoppy taste.

Sample at Max's on 7/23/14 (from notes)
A: Lacing and copper colored.
S: Hops, all day.
T: Bitter as hell. Along with pine, that is the taste. I don't usually get this even with some of the other big IPAs out there.
M: Smooth with light carbonation.
O: Unbalanced but hoppy and bitter as hell.
Serving type: on-tap
