Edit: 2014 is on another level, bumping it up from the previous 4.29 from 2013. Upping the 2015 version from 4.41

A - Pours a cloudy opaque orange, slight muddied brown, but very light overall. A full finger of off-white head, retention is decent, great lacing.

S - Fresh grapefruit rinds, maybe some sweeter citrus flavors (mango/orange), sweet caramel malts still find a way into the nose. Pretty much smells like your standard fantastic citrus DIPA

T - Dry, bitter, sweet citrusyness up front - zesty citrus, some sweetness, then a bit of pepper/spice and a mild alcohol burn mixes with bitterness through the finish. Pretty standard flavors but very good - the slight but obvious sweetness and spice is a nice touch. Definitely a bit of a hop bomb.

M - Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, a bit of a kick in the back of my tongue. Leaves behind a tihck feeling on the palate but quite drinkable as I find most dry bitter brews.

O - Very good hop forward citrusy DIPA with a little kick of spice. Definitely very drinkable for a 9.6%er

Poured from the tap at the Carolina Alehouse in Charleston, SC. The appearance is a bright orange color with a large white head. The aroma is a blend of hops, grapefruit and some mango. The taste is fruit driven with some piney hops tossed in for good measure. An excellent IPA.
