Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a New Belgium globe. Beer was a hazy orange color, with a very thick and creamy, two-finger tan head. Moderate carbonation and thick lacing around the glass.
Aroma was citrus, caramel, pine, wood ad mango. Aroma is fantastic. You can almost taste it. Fortunately, I'll be tasting it in a minute.
Taste was big bitter hops, caramel, some citrus and wood notes. I think my tongue just got beat up by a gang of hops. Very nice flavor overall.
Long, bitter finish. Somewhat syrupy mouthfeel and pretty dry overall.
Excellent beer. Well made and delish.

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.
