Had this on 2015-03-01 at BWI in the Rams Head Tavern.

Mild aroma. Some dank, pine, citrus and some caramel. Finish us moderately bitter. Just OK.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #74 (Mar 2013):

An amped-up IPA for sure, bordering on the Double IPA style with the strength of alcohol, plus a near blistering hop bitterness. Brewed with Chinook, Motueka from New Zealand and Bravo hops, which all makes for an aggressive but unique, or at least different, hop character. Worth the hunt for all of the hopheads out there.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 7.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Clear bubbly amber, solid lacing

SMELL: Ruby red grapefruit, piney, mild tobacco, juicy, cake batter, Grape-Nuts, alcohol, lime leaves

TASTE: Very smooth, pungent, resin, tobacco, grapefruit rind, peppery alcohol, mango, bitterness, biscuity grain, dried grass, spicy, husky, lime pith, warming; hoppy, bitter finish

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass

A: Pours a clear light copper hue with a 3-finger, white, frothy head that slowly dissipates leaving a nice trail down the side of the glass and ending in a huge lace.

S: Malty caramel aroma with a decent earthy hop background..

T: Tastes more like a imperial ipa than a regular ipa. Equal mix of sweet malt up front followed by bitter hops. Caramel malt background with that earthy hop flavor and finishes slightly dry.

M: Medium body and carbonation

O: Decent IPA – worthy of a try.

L - pale golden yellow. Clear.

S - not much aroma. Slight lemon.

T - strong lemon rind up front. Dry and hoppy. Bitter crispness. Malty.

F - initially smooth but then lots of foam when swished.

O - pretty aggressively hoppy. Unbalanced.

The aroma is hoppy, smelling fresh and wet.
The color is golden honey. The head though small is dense and lasting. The clarity is somewhat hazy with sediment of some sort,
Taste is sweet and hoppy up front and ends dry and bitter. Hops are bold and assertive on the palate.
Drinks thin and maybe watery.
A good tasting beer here but those floating things dampens the appearance.
