A - After a moderate pour I was left with a glass full of golden hued brew and a great fluffy white head, showcasing solid retention/ lacing
S - Citrusy hop presence is upfront with noticeable grapefruit characteristics. A piney profile makes it's presence known much more subtly.
T - The flavor profile showcases piney resinous hops much more than the citrusy nose would've led me to believe. The caramel malt backbone of this brew is present, but just enough to hold up the hops and make sure it doesn't take center stage.
M - A great medium body and level of carbonation make this a great brew. A slight dryness upon finish is also quite pleasant.
O - An amazingly delicious IIPA. The citrusy nose, combined with piney/ caramel taste make this a complex brew that should satisfy everyone. I could definitely drink more than I need to if I had this readily available...

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.
