I didn't think much of this at first but it's grown on me big time.
Pours lightish gold, not quite amber, with moderate clarity. Smells like a handful of hops; citrus, pine, flowers and cut grass. Taste is about like the nose, equal parts sweet and bitter with a crisp, refreshing finish. Solid hop flavors but no lasting bitterness, much more balanced than I expected, and maybe even on the malty side. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, would like something a bit more slick and chewy at this ABV but it remains highly drinkable. I'm on number 3 as I write this and could keep going, but I don't think I will.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Two finger head, clear golden color. Nose is citrusy (orange/grapefruit/pineapple) and hoppy - smells incredible.
Taste is similar to the smell, but the hops are more pronounced. Not overly carbonated. For a triple hopped IPA it isn't as aggressive in the hop flavors as it could be - not for drinking quickly, but definitely more drinkable than some similar beers. Could probably appeal to hopheads and those less enthusiastic about aggressive beers.
Overall a very good beer, one I'd like to keep around. Glad I picked it up on my way back from Baltimore.

On tap in a pint glass.

S- Piney hop aroma, some citrus and malts.
T- It's malty paired with those piney hops and earthy floral flavor.
M- Big body, thick and resinous. Well carbonated. Long hope bite finish.
O- Big hop profile that is not overly bitter. Better tan I expected.
