22 oz brown bottle.
First thing I noticed immediately after popping the cap was the amazing aroma. Fruity, strong grapefruit smell, hoppy, citrus, floral and intense! The appearance is an interesting orange-amber color with a bit of red in it. Decent-sized, rocky head of a sort of yellowish-white color. Taste is clean, with sweet, grapefruit hops flavor leading to a touch of caramel and then a bitter hop finish. Very tasty. Mouthfeel is very smooth, with medium body and a nice amount of carbonation. This is a very drinkable DIPA, and I would have never guessed while drinking it that it was 9.5% ABV if I didn't know what is was. So smooth and delicious I could probably drink two!

WOOOO! Just had this right after Alpha King. I was skeptical that this would beat it but I was wrong! This is a DIPA to end all DIPA's!
A: Golden in color and very clear. Beer pours a huge head and A TON of lacing lingers on the glass after the head withdraws. Couldn't have been better.
S: Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Smell lots of lemon, orange, grapefruit, apricot and mango (emphasis on the last two). It's practically a hop feast. However, there's a subtle amount of malt in the mix - mostly caramel and amber. I can't wait to imbibe on this.
T: You can't get better than this. This blows all the other DIPA's I've had out of the water. Simply superb balance between malt and hops. Can taste lots of sweet caramel and honey in the malt. These quickly give way to the hops which taste of grapefruit, mango, orange peel and lemon. I couldn't dream of a better beer.
M: Very thick and creamy. The carbonation balances out the thickness, however.
O: Perfect DIPA.
