Poured 22 oz bottle (best by 6/25/12) into Dogfish Head Tulip Pint. I have had this beer numerous times and am just getting around to rating it.

A- Pours a wonderful glowing orange copper with big two finger white head that dissipates to a nice coating of sticky lacing.

S- Smell is big citrusy hops. Some nice earthy hop notes as well.

T- Taste is smack you in the face hops. Definitely a true West Coast style IPA. A bit of malt to hold the hops at bay, but not much.

M- Mouthfeel is nice and dry. Not sickly sweet like some DIPAs tend to be.

O- One of my favorite beers of all times. I have only bought one case in ten years and this was it a few years back. Awesome DIPA.

This beer is extremely bitter, but there is almost no alcohol present, so it makes the bitterness more enjoyable.

When fresh, this beer can almost be a little overly bitter focused, rather than flavor focused, causing it to feel thin, but with a month or so on it, it balances out much nicer.
