Pours amber In color with one finger off white head that has decent retention. Some pretty good lacing is present all around the glass.
Nose has some great hop aromas, hints of citrus a bit of peach an a hefty amount of mango. A nice blend of fruity hops dominate the nose with a slight alcohol booziness.
There is alot of bitterness in the taste which you would expect with an imperial ipa. A small amount of the peach hops are present then are followed by a big hop bitterness that shadows over a Carmel malt background.
Carbonation gives it a nice smooth feel which is coupled with a nice amount of sticky oils from the hops.

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.
