Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. A lot of citrusy hops, but could have more for a double IPA. Still a really good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 fl oz bomber bottle on 18 November 2012. Purchased somewhere in Massachusetts (forget where) in October 2012. Golden amber with a slight haze. Just a touch papery on the nose - maybe not at its freshest but hard to tell without a best before / bottled on date. Otherwise a good solid strong IPA. Plenty of resinous and piney hops on the palate. Quite bitter on the finish with grapefruit notes lingering. Nicely dry and not at all sticky. Not a world beater but pleasantly tasty and pretty well done.
