Saw this last year and thought it was a high price, at the time I actually thought it was. A year later I have come to realize the high prices of craft beer and purchased a four pack. Bottled 09/28/10.

A- Yellow orange, very clear with a nice frothy off-white head. Head retention is nice and I can see huge webs of lacing forming off the head already. A good amount of spotty lace randomly on the glass.

S- Hops forward. I get a lot of citrus and tropical fruit notes along with a good dose of pine and earthy notes. Slight yeast and malt in the background.

T- Flavorful but different from the aroma. Hops dominate lending a lot of pine, floral, citrus zest, grapefruit and earthy flavors. Malt breaks in just a tiny bit with caramel. Slight yeast bread notes in the finish.

MF- Very light but a nice creaminess makes up for it. The carbonation is in the low-moderate range and feels nice. A strong bitterness and even some warmth are sensations left on the palate in the finish.

DB- A very hoppy APA (whooda thunk it). To me it is comparable to the Centennial IPA but brings a better hop flavor to the table. Solid, drinks smoothly and easily.

A-pours a clear golden straw color with a white sudsy head with nice retention and lacing
S-lots of dank hops, pine, orange, pineapple
T-more pine, orange, pineapple, apricot, and resiny bitterness in the finish, malt providing a nice balance but not lending much to the flavor
M-medium bodied with average carbonation
O-excellent wet hop IPA that is fruity and dank, definitely would seek out again
