Poured from a bottle...
Minimal to zero head on initial pour; light rusty orange color. There was a small degree of lacing which was surprising given the lack of initial head from the pour. The beer was itself was slightly opaque.
The nose was a blend of sweet malt and grassy hop with some citrus. Quite pleasant.
The taste is impressive. Not overly bitter at all; focus is more on flavor with a nice malt balance. Aftertaste is citrus but NOT an acidic grapefruit flavor.
The beer is nicely carbonated and smooth on the tounge. Warmth is minimal.
Overall this is a great IPA if you're looking to drink a few back to back. It's an easy IPA to drink if you're a hop-head and it will have you wanting more.

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.
A- Golden-orange color, big off-white head, fluffy. ample amounts of all kinds of lacing. Bubbly.
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.
