Everything perfect here, hence the 5 rating...you just gotta have this hops are perfect and the cereal malts balance perfectly even though this is a hop dominated brew.

"A GREAT super fresh, super tasty IIPA that blew the very good Stone 16th AV ale right outta the water. Dank, bright, complex hop profile with enough malt to balance but in no way interfere with the hops, which are showcased superbly here! Wonderful beer. Upon repeat visits, gott bump it to the upper stratosphere of 4.7.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: enjoy by 7-4-14 almost 60 days past best by date, pour is hazy golden orange with large white head. Aroma is hoppy, faded somewhat I think but still big with citrus and a touch of tropical fruit. Flavor is stone fruit, tangerine, a bit of mango and light caramel. A good beer even past it’s prime, missing the bigger Aroma and flavor pop that a fresh one has. I will have to try a fresh batch for comparison.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
09-20-14. Pours golden with a creamy white head. Aromas are loads of fresh floral hops, pine, citrus. Flavors are bursting with crisp hops, sweet grapefruit, pine needles, hay and biscuit. Finishes with bitter citrus and sharp hop bite. Medium mouthfeel; slightly syrupy. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 Enjoy by 09.20.14. Pours crystal clear amber. Very little head and carbonation. Aroma is all the goodness you would expect from a proper American DIPA. Mango, melon, pine, light crisp malt. The flavor is very good, but young. I guess that’s the idea. Resinous, salty, tropical fruit, and a bitter, slightly alcoholic finish. A damn fine brew.
Enjoy by 10.31.14. Same as above.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Enjoy by 02-14-14
Poured from a 22.oz bottle into Portsmouth tulip glass.
The color is a deep darker orange with a finger of white head with some nice lacing left on the glass. There a cloudy look to this beer that blocks the light out a bit does have a slight yellowish hue in the margins.
The smell is very piney hops flavored bringing a spruce aroma. There is a saturated clementine aroma that brings a bright citrus aroma that is hard brings visions of pulp to mind.
The taste of this beer is citrus at first but as it goes toward the back of the younger it pastes a layer of pine flavor hops that have slight sting as the go down. A slight scrape of the tongue by the bitterness of the hops is felt but feels like a battle scar since there is also tinge of pleasure there as well. At the corners of the mouth there is a nice slight tangerine flavor that resides there for a short time.
The feel of this beer a has a nice fullness that feels like it surrounds the pallet but does not engulf the entire mouth. This feels like a big IPA but does not hit hard either but slips into a push into hops here, there, and everywhere.

Bottle dated 16/8. Had a taster of this in the US and glad to see it again. Slightly hazy orange pour. Nose is the grapefruit I remember, peach, and a strange interloper: onion. Juicy, resinous taste with much bitterness. I think this is good but a little overhyped to be honest.
