First time even hearing about this beer was at Cape Fear Wine & Beer in Wilmington North Carolina. I was surprised it was only 9.4%. Color was good but it was clear which threw me off a little. I like my IPAs murky. Hops were plentiful... I'd expect no less from a XXXXIPA. taste was good but not spectacular... still solid and (too) easy to drink all night. At $6.00 a pint you couldn't go wrong.

On-tap at Thirsty Monk, Asheville, NC
A: The beer is slightly hazy orange amber in color. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of pine resin hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the pine resin hop flavors are stronger and linger through the finish. A light to moderate amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied, crisp and a little sticky on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The beer also leaves a little bite in the finish from the alcohol.
O: This beer has a good balance between the malts and hops. It isn't too difficult to drink because it hides its alcohol well.

On tap at Bottle Revolution
A - orangish amber with a thin, white head that has good retention
S - huge grapefruit aroma, some alcohol
T - herbal, piny, grapefruit, bitter, faint malt presence
M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated
This is a really solid, over-the-top hopped beer. It really brings the punch for hop heads. It's definitely worth a try.

On draft on 4/20, Waldo day.
Compared to Waldos by the bartender, had to try it. Served in a footed chalice glass, the beer was bright orange with a thin later of sticky white foam on the surface. Aroma was dry and piney. Flavor was similar. Not especially pungent or dank, it was dry and piney tasting also, a little oxidized. Medium bodied with a hint of alcohol present. Overall wasn't really worth trying, and probably wouldn't pick up a bottle of this if it was available, though it wasn't terrible.
