From notes, purchased from the Growler Station in NYC, drank later that night.

Pours a hazy gold color, pretty clear with a decent white head.

Aromas are grapefruit, resin, and lemon.

Taste is just like the nose, hoppy, bitter with some grapefruit, resin, and resiny hops, also kind of dusty.  Finish is crisp, lightly sweet with some crystal malt flavors.  

Mouthfeel is smooth and full bodied.

Overall, a pretty good DIPA, not quite up to top notch standards, but still good.

Appearance: Clearness, but a nice slightly darker color for an IPA
smell: brilliant clean hoppy smell
Taste: Amazing. It has a strong hoppy character, but its not jarring, ripping, or brutal. its like being hit on the tongue like a velvet wrapped hammer.
Mouthfeel: full malty backbone for a IPa, yet still to style. Excellent

To me this is a perfect double IPA. It just works on all levels and is so good that even a malt loving person like myself can enjoy its flavors.
If you see it, get it. Its a great beer for a great price.

This one has a bottle date on it 8/23/12.

A - pours out a clear light golden yellow, with a white head of a fingers height which died off relatively fast. Average lacing on this one. Head died to nothing after a few minutes. Looks like a typical IPA.

S - I get a nice dose of crisp clean smelling hops that provide a light sweet citrus (orange), mango and pine aroma with a nice caramel malt back on it. Not very strong on its nose but pleasant none the less.

T - This beer comes off nice clean and crisp with some pine, grass, orange citrus, and some pineapple sweetness. It is relatively balanced at this point with a caramel back on it. Cannot detect the alcohol besides on the back end which cleans off your palate and dries it out. Only complaint is a slight metallic flavor on the aftertaste. Hops do not build on your palate so you get to taste and enjoy them after each sip.

M - The beer is nice and soft on the palate with a medium light mouth feel all followed by a nice dose of carbonation. This beer slides down really easy and makes you want more. All I can say is crisp.

O - I really enjoy the way this beer drinks for a Double IPA, definitely not extreme for the style but really clean, crisp, and pleasant for a beer coming in at 8.2%. Nothing to complain about here just a really good easy drinking beer. I could put a few of these back for sure. Will buy again. Well done, cheers!
