A - Blazing burnt orange color with a decent sized, smooth, creamy white head. Pretty good retention but almost no lace. Surprising given the ABV.
S - Sweet citrus and stone fruit. Caramel malt and some booziness. Pine hop aroma is also in there. Pretty fruity overall.
T - Like the aroma, there is a good amount of citrus, tropical and stone fruit. Mango, apricot, peach, grapefruit and orange all in there. A touch of booze on the finish but not much given the ABV. Caramel malt is also fairly strong. Much more sweet than bitter, but bitterness does come out.
M - Medium starting toward full body. Nice carbonation and has a smooth and slightly viscous feel.
D - Even with the ABV it isnít too boozy. It is a little on the sweet side though. That said, given what this beer is, it is very drinkable.
Notes: On tap at Beer Revolution. Not sure the year. It was surprisingly not to boozy and pretty easy to drink. Having had 90 Minute, I knew this would be sweet and it definitely was. Nice beer with plenty of sweet hopiness, but there is a touch of bitterness. Good, but I donít know if Iíd pay the price for a bottle.
Hazy dark orange with thin off white head. Orange, malt aroma. Sweet, boozy bittersweet flavors. Big, thick, juicy body. Long malty, bitter finish. Heaven on steroids. BadgerBucky (1) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2017 does not count

Had to rate because of all the FB ranting about it and in bev. Sam wants it pulled. Donít know if I blame him or not but thought Iíd get a rating in. Dark copper penny color and incredible hop aroma. Thick and kind of sweet it only downside, alcohol well hidden. Really good and really expensive.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2017 Bottle into snifter. Pours a deep amber with a white head. Notes of floral hops and booze on the nose. Same on the palate with a bit of caramel. Nice slight booze burn on the finish. Great brew but not worth the price tag. hman43 (1538) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Golden in appearance with a white head. Strong alcohol flavors but only slightly hot. justicemaguire (4) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2017 does not count
Drank at home from a bottle. Just a rock solid IPA with a malty backbone. Nice fruity aroma. VinegarStroke (420) - Napa, California, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle: just because you can do something doesnít mean itís right. Deep copper color, good head and lace. The aromas are dominated by a slow or stuck ferment. The palate is sweet and hot. Itís probably has a high VA.
Folks talk about hops, I donít know how you see them with all the malt, alcohol and slow ferment profile.
Intense flavor but no balance. A very poor beer. coachd (800) - Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Smells surprisingly malty and dank with some spicy hops and booze. Great burnt orange color with a tiny cap of cream colored foam. Tastes sweet up front, then slight pine hops with a boozy aftertaste that lasts a long time. Smooth palate, the only noticeable carbonation is at the end. This was good. Not worth the hefty price tag, not one of the best DIPAs I have ever had, but good.
