A - Poured into a tulip, apricot/deep golden color, solid white head which settles after a few minutes leaving tons of lacing behind that stick to the glass and create little floating islands.
S - First smell is amazing ripe mango and pineapple is unmistakable, very tropical and fruity (wonderful). Bringing nose closer to glass can smell some grain notes very subtle, mostly smell hop profile.
T - Carmel sweetness from the malt hits first followed by an enjoyable high carbonation which lifts the tropical hop aromas to the nose and provides a flavor sensation of sweetness and tropical hop flavors. A pleasant hop bitterness starts to coat the mouth, not aggressively, but in perfect balance with roasted malt flavors and ends with a gentle alcohol warming. Both sweetness and bitterness extend in unison until meet with another taste.
M - Medium body with a bit of slickness which is cut by the carbonation. Tends to coat mouth with a tiny bit of alcohol tingle.
O - Goddamn this beer is AWESOME, pungent tropical hop flavors with a solid complex malt profile. This beer is bad ass.

Served on tap at Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. The appearance is unremarkable, but with a solid head and fairly sticky lacing. The smell is tropical fruit--not as pronounced and appealing as, say, White Rajah, but still quite good. The taste consists of mango, orange, and lemon flavors, and the bitterness from the hops just isn't here--imagine, a DIPA without bitterness--instead is sweetness from the citrus hops. The mouthfeel is unusual, but not bad at all--this beer is on the thin side (it could pass for a session beer if not for the high ABV) and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a DIPA well worth trying.
