On first pour, I can tell this is going to be a little different. The beer immediately foams up to the top of the glass, almost overflowing. It takes a long time to settle, and it settles unevenly, looking like the sudsy foam of an overflowing washing machine. One it settles, it looks pretty good: there's still plenty of head, tons of lacing around the glass, and a cloudy orange beer underneath. It looks good, but I think the carbonation needs to be controlled better. I did not shake the beer or anything. It has been sitting in the refrigerator. 3.5

Smell is pretty good. At first, it was sweet and citrusy, like some kind of lemon candy. As it warms up, it's starting to smell kind of sweaty, but not terrible. 3.75

Taste is surprisingly good. There's none of that funky smell in the flavor. It's light citrus and smooth, sweet malt. 3.75

Feel is decent despite the appearance of over-carbonation. Not quite the dense, sticky feel of some of the top-tier DIPAs, but solid. 3.75

This is a well-made IPA: smooth, tasty, and easy to drink.

Poured into an IPA glass. Moderately hazy golden amber color with a frothy large white head. Nice retention and good lacing. Bright aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, mangoes, and a bit of pine - not much malt presence here. The taste followed with bitter orange, grapefruit, some berry, some pine, and a bit of piney resin. Present but understated malt presence but enough to provide slight sweetness and a nice body. A great beer.

Great nose on this one. Prickly citrus hops linger on the palate. Tons of fruity hop aftertaste. This is a SOLID imperial IPA. Of Blue Pants offerings, I put this one right there with their pils, which is world class. Great DIPA, get it if you can.

Review #800! On tap at LD's Beer Run, Jackson, MS

A: Opaque amber with a thick, white 2 finger head that almost refused to settle. Thick lacing.

S: Good God, I could smell this beauty for days. West Coast hoppiness, heavy citrus love, featuring orange, lemons and mangoes. Lots of pine resin, too. Can one have an olfactory orgasm?

T: And the West Coast hits home with a sledgehammer. Nothing subtle about these hops. Aggressive, sultry and citrus-y as hell. Low bitterness. High taste factor.

M: Medium with medium, creamy carbonation.

O: This came as a complete surprise. One of the best DIPA's I've ever had. Must have more. Fresh and deadly.

3.5/4/4.5/4/4.5
Clear, dark gold. Smells citrusy and sweet. Really hoppy, vaguely caramelly. The taste is a well-executed, consummate DIPA a la old-school 90 Minute. Tons of malt then WHAM! classic American hops. Citrus peel, pine needles, dank weed(s). It's really good. Highly recommended.

Had on tap at Hop City in Birmingham, AL. Huge fan of hops and this delivers with no bitter aftertaste.

Reminds me of some of the West Coast Imperial IPA's. Don't let some of the earlier ratings fool you; this beer has gotten much better. It's very drinkable for a high gravity beer. Nice balance and not too sweet. Very pleasant hop aroma.
