4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong citrus, grapefruit aroma. No malt on the nose. The appearance is slightly hazy with a light gold color. The flavor is super hoppy with a lingering bitterness on the finish. The malt is very light on flavor. The mouthfeel is medium -light and the beer coats the mouth on the finish. The carbonation is medium. Overall it's really hoppy for an IPA, tastes like a double IPA. I enjoyed drinking it and will order it again.

Clear, dark golden pour. Great floral aroma. Resinous pine flavor, huge hop bite with a bitterness that lingers on the palate. Flavor that lets you know your drinking a beer! Freaking awesome!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 22. Color is a light, peachy type color. First sip is very sweet, almost fruity. This beer definitely has the "tropical fruit" hops. Lots of hints of papaya and warm San Diego sunsets! Very well balanced. Great beer!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Exceptional, really. Very well balanced across a great range of temperatures, which is rare for American IPAs I think. Very crisp, bitter, and refreshing when served very cold. Lots of citrus notes. The malts come out as it warms. Once it hits around 50-55F after sitting for a bit, it becomes full and well-rounded. The hop profile is excellent, for the style, and has a aromatic presence and a finish that easily make it one of the best IPAs I have had. Highly recommended.
Update 5/6/13: I found a bottle marked "Enjoy By 4/20/13", indicating that as of today, it was bottled about 135 days ago. Figured it would be a good experiment. At this age, the citrus has dropped off considerably. The hop flavors are very hollow and papery with only some minor resinous pine and some dry bitterness left. It has definitely become a different beer. Closer to a Stone IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2011. Aroma has a lot of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple and other sweet aromas. Taste has a punch of bitterness but balanced by a heavy malt base with sweetness that rounds the beer off as it goes down.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bonused from snojerk321. Thanks Torry! Pours clear golden with medium carbonation. Aroma is citrus and the slighest touch of thiol, but not terribly strong. Drinks dry with nice bitterness but not too much flavor. Easy to drink, but not what I had been expecting. Still a well-made beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark yellow-orange pour with thin white head. Aroma is strong hops and citrus. Flavor is extreme hops, heavy citrus, light malt. Finish is dry & hoppy, fairly soft mouthfeel. Not as big of a fan of this IPA as others, mostly due to the dry-hop feel to it.
