A- pour produces a 2 finger off white head resting on a deep golden body. Good head retention and good lacing 4 

S- tropical fruits, slight pine, earthy, grapefruit, a begian yeast smell, slight alcohol scent. Smells very good 4

T- tropical fruit explosion! The tropical fruits are accompanied by pine, banana, an earthy undertone. Malt is in near perfect balance. Alcohol is definitely noticavble but doesnt detract much. A very tasty brew 4

M- very good mouthfeel. Lighter on the cabonation side good viscosity 4

O- much better than I expected as I have always seen this and passed it up. Will probably get it again. 4

A - Crystal clear orange copper, really beautiful--can see the carbonation lines perfectly. Light one finger head dwindles down to a thin welcoming layer.

S - Candied fruit, as suggested ("orange") per label. More tropical fruit than citrus on the nose, a nice change from typical IIPAS. Hint of caramel.

T - (Really looking forward to this!) Layers of hops unfold. That tropical profile follows in the flavor--is it the "nectar" that I detect? Grapefruit prevails the more it warms up. Pine is present as well. Good robust flavors Alcohol slightly apparent as it warms.

M - Full mouth feel, foamy carbonation, clean finish. No sticky resin lingering.

O - I like this DIPA, its a bit different than the PNW doubles Ive had. Its definitely worth a try for any imperial india pale ale lover.
