Notes/Commercial Description:
Burnished gold with a rich citrus hop aroma, it is wonderfully drinkable with a big hop flavor. We’ve knicknamed it Hop3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over 3 pounds per barrel! It is hopped 3 ways: in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped.

3.26/5  rDev -18.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Apparently, I'm in the minority on this ale. I bought a six of this and I'm on the fourth one. With so many great AIPAs out there, this comes in just average.
A- almost no lacing. Decent amber hue.
S- mostly it's the high alcohol content and maybe a little citrus
T- bitterness dominates. Not a surprise at 90 ABU but not much else. But it's a nice balance of hop and malt in the aftertaste. So, very bitter on the tongue but quickly fades after swallowing.
M- the best feature. Just the right carbonation, alcohol bite.
Overall, I guess if you live in the mid-atlantic states, it would be a good AIPA if you can't readily get any of the many great west coast AIPAs.
