A: Slightly cloudy, gold, nice white head, wonderful lacing, decent retention. A very nice looking beer.
S: Extremely fruity/citrusy. Rich hops in there too. Toasted malt with sticky caramelized brown sugar.
T: Extremely intense flavor - hops and alcohol come out in full force to attack, backed up by a really sweet malt (almost cloying) and tangy fruit ends up in the background, but it's still strong compared to most flavors. Very interesting flavor. Toasty flavor is in there, but it's rather hard to detect with the sweetness.
M: Thick, chewy, syrupy - more like a stout than an IPA for sure. Sticks to your mouth, holding the flavors in after swallowing. This is about what I expected.
D: Goes down slow - not one to try to drink quickly for a few reasons: you'd be very drunk very fast, you'd be overpowered by sweetness, and you'd feel extremely full. This one is better for sipping by the fire (or in the hot tub). Not something I would have with most foods (except maybe some cheese and crackers/bread).
