A - A clear golden brown color with huge amounts of carbonation. Even a proper pour gives it a huge white foamy head.

S - The nose on this one hits you with a sweet, crisp, citrusy aroma. Good smell, but a little musty on the backend. That could be my fault; it was bottled on 1/29/13 and I drank it 4/13/13. So not the freshest IPA I've ever had, but it still smells great.

T - A lot of bitter hoppy notes. Then a huge caramel maltiness that settles on the tongue. Good taste, but nothing too significant.

M - A thin, bubbly body. Leaves behind a little bit of a thick coating in the mouth.

O - A nice and easy to drink imperial IPA. Overall a good beer, but I'm not sure if I'd buy it again. Definitely not disappointed, as I love almost all DFH brews, but this one should be a "try it once".

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle, bottled on 1/28/13. The head was the color of a manilla folder and the body was a bright apricot. Moderate lace.

The smell was earthy and flowery hops. Citrus.

The taste was a bit creamy and sweat. A little peppery bite. Spicy and interesting.

The mouthfeel was medium in body. Moderate carbonation. Overall solid.

From notes. Poured into a tulip glass: thick white, foamy head over a light cloudy, amber liquid. Smells amazing. A perfect balance of hoppy goodness and sweet malts. Exactly how an IPA should smell. Equivalent to Pliny in that regard. Tastes wonderful. Perfect citrus hops; little to no pine, which I like. Very good balance of alcohol spice, hops, and malt that resulted in a very delightful and drinkable beer. Mouthfeel as balanced, smooth, and a bit sticky; sweet and bitter as it should be. Overall, it was a bit pricy but besides that a very good beverage that was wonderfully enjoyable to consume.
