poured from a bottle into an unbranded tulip
appearance - pours a golden orange with a thick head that quickly fades into a thin later on the top, light to moderate carbonation and leaves somewhat decent lacing
smell - up front a strong citrus smell, lemon, with hints of grapefruit and orange, a mild piney smell after
taste - grapefruit and lemon up front, this fades into a sweet orange, at the end is a slight piney flavor and alcohol burn in the nose, there is enough malty sweetness to balance out the "100 IBU's" not going to lie i was pleasantly surprised when i took my first sip of this bad boy
mouthfeel - slightly thicker than expected, but the slight carbonation helped to lighten this up, leaves an enjoyable feeling on the tongue a few seconds after you take a sip
drinkability - easy to drink but not a quick one, sipped on these 750 ml for quite some time, great way to unwind after a long week of summer classes
overall - above average beer, not the best imperial ipa iv ever had but damn tasty thinking of picking up another bottle to share with my brother who helped turn me on to ipas

Gotta say....love the artwork.
Huge white foam with a nice bright amber/copper colored ale.
Aroma has a lot of malt present with light lemon whiffs in the background. Wishing for more.
Taste was pretty good. I am getting more of the lemon on the swallow with nice hoppiness playing around with the malt.
Good amount of carbonation on each swallow, bit not overly.
Overall I was intrigued by the artwork and my man-love for DFH. Unfortunately I was not totally impressed with this offering. I was hoping for more hops and zest but was met with a bigger dose of malt. The lemons didn't make that much of an appearance to the party either. I did like reading the label though.
