Dank, resiny with citrus and orange. Good stuff.

Look: About a finger of white head after pour. Dissipates rather quickly. Decent lacing on the sides of the glass. Dark gold body.
Smell: After the initial pour I get pine and floral notes. Very appealing but after that it's not as pungent as I had hoped. Aroma was fairly simplistic.
Taste: Pine, grapefruit, zest, big hop bitterness which swells on the finish.
Feel: Big resin feel with a medium body. Definitely a bold body to this beer.
Overall: Very enjoyable IPA, I love the taste and feel. There is no doubt a "dank" sensation to this beer. Only shortcoming for me is the nose, just wish it had more nuance and strength.

Finally! Can from Tin Bucket.

Surprisingly darker than I was expecting, this beer is amber in color with a long-lasting off-white head with good retention and lacing. Given a chance to warm up, the nose takes on a dank, pine-heavy aroma with plenty of grapefruit zest and some floral notes.What sets this beer apart is the balance; it really reminds me of Swami's IPA.

The palate opens with a big bitterness, pine-heavy with some grapefruit juice mixed in. Dank with some marijuana notes, this beer is a wonderful expression of hops. Malt character isn't allowed a chance to appear; it's completely dominated by the hops. Bitter with plenty of pine, some resin and some weed on the finish, this light-bodied beer with moderate carbonation is excellent on the palate. Creamy, bitter, pine-heavy... what's not to like? Cleanly fermented, deft and assertive, this is a great IPA.
