I think it's a great beer... an incredible sipper... but a bit over-the-top.
It's not really meant to be balanced... and it works.

I had a pint of this on tap at Russian River last weekend. Totally agree with your assertion of ridiculously juicy hops and that it wasn't the bitter bruiser I was expecting. I'm excited to try the couple of bottles I brought back and compare it to how it presented on tap.
It's interesting how differently people perceive this beer. I though it was just a fantastically balanced IIPA, but as Derek notes, there are many others who get the opposit impression and that's what they really dig about it. A definite top 3 IIPA for me.
