A: Brilliant golden hue, topped with a fluffy white head. For whatever reason, I poured this into a Delerium Tremens snifter, so the nucleation point is giving it a pretty look.
S + T: I don't get a whole lot of aromatics from the nose. There are some mild citrus scents and a touch of woodiness, but it's really quite tame. The flavour is somewhat mellow, as well--and most certainly for a double IPA. The malts seem a little dominant, and there's a sweetness that is not balanced with the hops. The flavour is not BAD, but somewhat unbalanced and modest. It could shoot more towards an 'American translation on the English IPA without becoming an American IPA,' but I suppose that just wouldn't make any sense. :)
M + D: The body is a little slick; perhaps it is more oily. The carbonation is modest, and has a nice little bite, but given the sweetness of the beer, it's a little 'sticky' and almost candied. I didn't mind it, but I'd probably set my sights on another in the store.
