Many thanks to jisom123 for sending this bottle!

A - Pours a hazy orange/gold color with a massive billowing head and incredibly sticky lacing, carbonation is small and steady.

S - Alot of sweet, juicy, assertive and pungent fruit resin: mango, papaya, tangerine, and pineapple being the strongest aroma of the bunch. The only indication of malt anywhere in the nose is from the spicy rye and nothing else.

T - Taste follows the nose with a massive wall of resinous and oily tropical from start to finish. Up front is a massive wave of pineapple rinds, mangos, and tangerines and ends with a perfect sweet red grapefruit bitterness. The rye lends itself to a spicy, peppery character that adds to the intensity of the frutiness - lingering fruity spice. As the beer gradually warms a slight touch of caramel malt surfaces but it's buried way down there. There is some alcohol effervescence and warming as it slides down the throat.

M - Medium body, semi-dry finish, slightly oily, and with prickly carbonation.

O - For any lover of Imperial IPA/D-IPA's, this is a "fantabulous" beer and a must try before it starts fading. Thanks, jisom123!!
