The beer pours a nice golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It's balanced wonderfully with loads of malts and hops. The hops really call out to me. I've waiting to try this beer for a long time. The taste is awesome! It's smooth and malty with a huge hop explosion. It goes down easy and finishes bitter, but with a balanced malt taste as well. It's high in alcohol, but not warm in the finish. It's huge with hops, but not overbearing. The malts are there, but the bill is not too complex. This is a beer done to perfection. The mouthfeel is great. It's a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is the best Imperial IPA I'v ever had; period.

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.
