Woah! Huge beer. Nice. This beer reeks of hops, in a very good way. Smells like big ole football sized hop cones scented like flowers, nondescript citrus fruit, and evergreens. Malt comes across as juicy, a little estery, and creamy milk chocolate. Each sip is an obscene mouthful of floral, resiny, juicy hops that reminds me of strawberries. Once the mouth becomes acclimated to the onslaught, the soft pale malt with caramel notes comes through, but before that its nonstop celery-tasting bitterness.
It could have used a bit more malt body, but in any case this was a real gem.

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.
