A- Wonderful look of a clear/slight haze with a big head that is foamy light white.
S- Fresh hops and citrus. Just an awesome well balance of hops from flame out and dry hopping.
T- Wonderful, taste of grapefruit maybe. More importantly the hops are a big and giving the big boom of bitterness that blooms into even more hop flavor. I haven't like a Imperial IPA hop flavor like this since Hopslam.
M- FFF has a great way of making beers that are so thick that it actually changes how the carbonation works in the beer. This beer is another great example of this. It's so thick, that it seems a little under carbonated until the end of the sip when the carbonation comes in huge.
O- Solid solid solid beer. It has to be one of the best Imperial IPAs I have had the pleasure of drinking. I'm not saying it's the best, but it has to be up there.

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.
