Live tasting bomber into Duvel tulip...
Appearance; pours a gorgeous, perfectly clear amber orange with two fingers of lush straw colored head. Retention is good, and after a couple minutes there is still a decent blanket coating the top of the beer. Lacing is good with sticky clumps of head clinging to the glass.
Smell; aroma is dominated by a mellow orange aroma with notes of tropical fruit such as pineapple and mango... Hints of honey as well.
Taste; starts right off with orange, and includes good tropical fruit notes, pineapple, and mango... Hints of honey interweave with a lingering floral flavor in the finish..
Mouthfeel; is on the full side of medium bodied, sticky and hangs around for a minute or two.
Overall; I really, truly enjoy this beer... I wish it was more readily available (I'd like to thank MicroFanatic for these!!) and I could definitely drink this a couple times a week and not get tired of it.

Poured undated 12 oz bottle into pint glass. This is excellent beer. It brings to mind "Pliney the Elder". The flavor profile is very similar. Pours a clear golden-yellow with a tinge of orange, with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Not a huge aroma, but its clean, floral and slightly dank, with some pineapple and peach. The taste is wonderful and just gets better the more you drink it. It's somewhat fruity and buttery with a perfect balance of sweet maltiness and huge hops but low bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and smooth with low carbonation, but still refreshing with well concealed alchohol. Overall, I'd say this is world class...a really great Imperial IPA.
