Tried this one on a rare beer night tasting with some BA friends during September 2010. Thanks troywhittaker for bring and sharing this rare find for us FL folks.
I need to take some more detailed notes on this one ate a future time, but here is a high level review for my future reference.
Appearance pours a copper orange color with a fluffy head and impressive lacing.
Aromas of the full hop spectrum. Citrus, grapefruit, pine, spice. Tastes as it smell with a solid hop bitterness and equal maltbackbone with solid caramel malt support.
Full bodied mouthfeel for an IPA, the malt support shows through in the full body.
Look fwd to trying this one again, enjoyable for sure, often described as very citrus hop profile, I look fwd to researching this again on a future fresh tasting.

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.
