The head is best described from the three separate pours to give me "a proper pint." This settles to minute layer of bubbles, but leaves a cross between blanketing and spotty lace. The liquid is golden and cloudy.

A combination of floral and grapefruit rind smelling hops.

Surprisingly well-balanced for a DIPA. Solid pale malt start where one can detect the moderate toast of the kilned malt. The hop is the predominant flavor thereafter without much distinction--simply bitter. Full bodied which is accentuated by the lower effervescence.

I think Evil Genus's attempt into the imperial beers is a worthy first effort.
Though the appearance isn't with your basic boring pour. That meaning a light head and no carbs. The color was a tad light bordering close to golden straw.
The aroma was very nice with some floral and piney notes.
The taste is resinous and oily hops. Some hop flavor pokes through with floral and earthy taste. You could almost taste or sense warming alcohol on the palate.
Finishes dry and bitter.
