From notes... Consumed at JP O'Malley's in Allentown, Pennsylvania on 03.10.06...
Brilliant orange in colour with a hint of a murky haze for good measure. White lace stuck well to the pint glass. Huge aromas of pine juice and citrus twistings. Some diacetyl noted for good measure. Surprisingly light on the palate, this one is oviously all about the hops The alcohol, while quite warming, is hidden well in all of the hops. The malt back bone plays a pleasant second fiddle. Well balanced and controlled. A fantastic brew, especially on a chilly fall day.

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.
