i couldn't fit this big bottle in my beer cozy...j/k. pours a crystal clear deep, dark copper with a thick, thick off-white head. head retention and lacing are excellent. blasts of citrusy pine hits you in the face as your raise the glass to your lips. silky, thick, chewy mouthfeel...unbelievably smooth. massive vanilla-ish and carmel sweet malts hold up remarkably well against the onslaught of hop flavor. i emphasize flavor. hops taste like sugar-coated grapefruit drenched in pine. sweet hop flavor lasts forever. tasty, never overly bitter. ever so slightly warming, deceivingly drinkable. not too many other beers can match this one, in my book. the craftsmanship is staggering. magnificent.

Served on tap at Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. The appearance is unremarkable, but with a solid head and fairly sticky lacing. The smell is tropical fruit--not as pronounced and appealing as, say, White Rajah, but still quite good. The taste consists of mango, orange, and lemon flavors, and the bitterness from the hops just isn't here--imagine, a DIPA without bitterness--instead is sweetness from the citrus hops. The mouthfeel is unusual, but not bad at all--this beer is on the thin side (it could pass for a session beer if not for the high ABV) and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a DIPA well worth trying.
