look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 OZ bottle poured into a DFH IPA glass Bottled 1/3/13, tasted 2/15/13.

A - Pours amber with red and orange hues. 1 and half finger off white head. Leaves good lacing.

S - Strong citrus/grapefruit hops upfront with pine and resin too. Some sweet malts mixed in the background somewhere

T - Sweet malt upfront, that fades to citrus, pine and resinous hops. Finishes with medium to strong bitterness.

M - Medium body and medium carbonation, actually quite smooth.

O - Quite tasty, wonderful aroma, not as good as my memories from the first time I had it 2-3 years ago when it blew me away but still very enjoyable.

On subsequent tastings, I noticed I like this beer even more with some age on it...which is a first for a hoppy beer. It keeps its hoppiness but it kind of mellows a bit and I really start to enjoy it at the 2-3 month range.
