I poured this beer into a tulip style glass. There was about two fingers of foam that dies down pretty quickly. The coloring is really light. It is a pale yellow.
I really enjoy the nose on this one. I got a lot of citrus, and some flowering hops. There was also some sweetness in the bouquet. The flavor doesn't play as well. The balance is pretty far off. You get a lot of bitterness without any offset.
This is an interesting Imperial IPA. I would like to try it again to see if my opinion changes.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a lightly cloudy golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that diminished slowly, down to a large puddled film and medium collar with excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was pleasantly sweet with light grain malts, citrus and floral hops and a mild earthy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and tangerine), tropical fruit (mango, pineapple and papaya) and a very light hint of alcohol.
The taste started out lightly sweet with notes of caramel and citrus, but quickly became moderately bitter with a bold fruitiness and a strong alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lasted for a nice long time following the swallow, with a hoppy alcohol taste left lingering on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a creamy, dry texture and a carbonation that was a subdued medium in intensity.
Overall this is a really tasty and well balanced IPA. I don't know if it is the rice that made the difference, but it is put together exceptionally well making it a very enjoyable drinking experience...
