Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass
A- golden amber when held directly to the light but it has a redish hue when not looked directly through the light. The head is about a half inch and dissipates quickly into a thin lace.
S- sugary malt, pine, and grapefruit. There's an unknown smell I can't put my finger on it but its not something i usually smell in an IPA. Its good though. Not skunky.
T- bitter up front with a blast of pine and grapefruit while in the mouth followed by a sweet malt that reminds me of a stout. Very interesting but very satisfying. The pine remains on the back of the tongue for a while.
M- slightly carbonated but nothing unpleasant. The bitterness on the back of the tongue hangs out for a while that i wish didn't.
O- this was an exceptional IPA. Very well balanced between malt and hops without losing the benefits and characteristics of either.

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.
