A- Pours a slightly hazy copper with frothy/thick bubbles and head that dissipates on the quick side but maintains a thin layer and strong lacing.

S- Sweet malt and citrus/piney hops immediately flood the nose, very powerful and wonderful.

T- Very similar to the nose, so great. A touch of sweet malty flavor hits first followed by a very powerful hop presence that balances so well. I could drink this all day if it wasn't...11.25% ABV? Holy cow. Masked very well. The large of amount of hops and bitterness combined with the great flavor masks how strong this is. Finishes dry and with more of the hop bite. While the malt/citrus taste comes first the hop/pine flavor finishes.

M- Medium to light body and carbonation. Very smooth and easy drinking. Again, 11.25%? What? Not sure how they do it.

O- A MUST find for any lover of imperial IPA's. This beer packs a big punch but you wouldn't know it from the masterful balance of flavor and light mouthfeel. Combined with some of the best aromas i've seen this is a real world class beer.

Big thanks to Orthodoxkardia.

22oz bottle with 01/18/14 on the side. Lots of lacing. Pours a burnt amber color with an inch of head. The aroma is lots of juicy tropical fruits. Pineapple, mango, orange, and sweet grapefruit. The taste is boozey with bitter tropical fruits and citrus hops. Grapefruit, pineapple, and some piney hops. Bitter and boozey. Fair amount of malt flavor but this thing is hops dominated. Creamy mouthfeel. I'm a sucker for "Triple IPAs" and this one is up there with Hopsickle, Devil Dancer, Hi Res etc. Overall, fantastic brew I'm glad I got to try.
