Smells amazingly sweet, fruity and hop driven the fruity smell comes from citrusy hops, one of the best smelling ipas I can remember... has a clear copper deep yellow color. Taste is EXTREAMLY POTENT! bitter hops overboard! 112 i.b.u. - no kidding! Still in no way harsh just VERY rich.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled 5/24/13 at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma – very deep pine/hemlock aroma
Head large (6.5cm), frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Lacing good
Body clear, more amber than orange
Flavor begins with a thick sweet piney taste, very resinous, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate is medium, oily to syrupy, with a light bitter finish

I realize this beer is technically past its prime, but has aged well, becoming a very smooth flavorable ale. I’ll be buying more to cellar.
