A- big enough tulip for a big enough head. Glowing murky reddish orange body topped by a beautiful bubbling beige monstrosity that looks like creamy foamed liquid hop saliva. Righteous swirly lace. Under the cap it says "lust". Very fitting indeed.
S- the aroma profile here fits my ideal for a double ipa: 1) a background of marshmallowy vanilla cookie toffee malt and 2) resinous earthy deeply musky hops. Everything else from there can be variable. Luckily, this one is on the outer space positive end of the spectrum. Earthy damp and mushroomy, sweet sugar cookie, beer saturated grapefruit and a red meaty quality. Alcoholic fumes with undertones of mango and passion fruit.
T- that whole ideal standard that I mentioned in the aroma translates well here. A little drier and less sweet than led to believe but that's perfect as too much sweetness can ruin my day. Ballsy hop character laid over that marshmallow toffee cookie malt. White grapefruit, pineapple, bitter orange, like leaves, pine, glory. Finishes long and bitter with tingling alpha acids.
MF- softly carbonated and succulent bodied with a slipperiness on the palate that goes on forever along with the impression of tannic dryness. This beer feels oak aged.
D- bomb ass imperial with old cracked out cracky on the label. Very pleased with this one. I give it a 10 out of 6.

2014 edition. Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Tree House tulip.
a: Hazy amber with a finger thick offwhite head which became a bare film of surface foam and some spotty lacing.
s: Mild citrus and pine.
t: Moderate bready malt and pine followed by some bitterness on the tongue.
m: Medium, good body, lots of carbonation tingle.
o: A powerful and tasty IIPA, very good sipper.
Serving type: growler
