My first review on Firefox and my BRAND SPANKING NEW COMPUTER!!! I'm not excited or anything.
A - Copper/sunset body with an extremely frothy white head. It's small, but manages to linger a little while in my standard pint. Good lacing.
S - Big centennial hops. That's about all I smell in that department. There is an underlying malty, sugary sweetness that lends to a fruitier vibe.
T - It's got a good flavor but has a metallic, mineral note that's present til about halfway through the glass. IPA? I don't know... it's an APA as much as Alpha King is. It's a nice, hoppy, slightly bitter APA, with a good amount of malt backbone to help it along.
M - Big mouthfeel for an APA, plus a crisp carbonation to move it along. Great in this department.
D - This is a tasty brew, and I could drink a couple in a night for sure
Notes: This is more of an IPA than anything, and looking at that, it's definitely one worth drinking if available. Though, I'm not disappointed I can't get it... I'll take Pandemonium any day :D

COD 4/21/14. Pours a clear almost medium amber with a nice dark ruby tint. Tremendous head with excellent lacing and retention. Very nice nose of tropical citrus hops over a pine and light caramel background. Medium body with an almost slick texture. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hop flavors found in the nose, then rapidly flows to a pine focused hop bitterness over a slightly tart note. As the bitterness fades, a light caramel sweetness emerges in the effervescent finish. A tart pine bitterness with hints of spice lingers.
