A - A calm looking beer. The strong head bubbles like the top of a pancake ready to be flipped. The body of the beer has the tiniest lines of carbonation lazily heading upwards through the murky golden liquid.
S - Just a single solid nose-blast of hops. No more, no less and 'tis glorious.
T - Be ready for this one or it will end your tastebuds. It comes riding a horse of hops to kick you in teeth with flavors rich and sweet, once your teeth are demolished the flavor train will then go on to compress the sides of your tongue with the bitter citrus of righteousness. If you think the assault is over it is a mere repreive until the final thrust to back of your mouth. You thought swallowing would end the attack? You were wrong. The aftertaste of dry, crisp justice pervades every square inch of the inside of your mouth while the 10% ABV volatizes it way up your unsuspecting sinuses into your nasal cavity. Eventually you'll be gasping for air just to end the ectasy, unless you're a masochist for pleasure and decide to venture another sip.
M - It's a mouthfeel without end, boasting the longest aftertaste of any beer in recent memory, and I'm fine with that because I don't want it to end and it just feels like I'm absoultely getting my money's worth.
D - This is one of my favorite beers around, in one of my favorite styles, and it comes in a can so it stays just as fresh as can be. WIN.

Pour is golden with white head. Sticky and lingering lace.
Lemon zest with grapefruit and pine in the nose.
Spivey punch in the initial sip. Both from the hops and malts. I love the blend of rye and dark Munich. This really adds to the complexity of the hop bill. Easy drinking with medium mouthfeel and a sharp bite from carbonation.
Some more pine and grapefruit in the aftertaste with a dry enough finish.
Overall a solid imperial IPA. Doesn't blow you away but very solid throughout.
