Draft. Large off-white head, clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some orange, spicy. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, rye, some grapefruit. Medium body, some resin, light acidity, nicely drinkable. (Obviously) really blown away by this one -- the flavor components mix into one tasty brew thatís exceptionally smooth and easy to drink.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 S: Intense - grapefruit sweetness, darker character from the rye, pine notes, some alc detected A: slightly haze - orange/gold with a puffy white tight small bubble head, fantastic lacing. T: Less pronounced and complex than the nose, but still excellent. Similar to their other imperials but with a more biting due to the rye, I assume. Tropical fruit sweetness, citrus fruit and rye bitterness substantial malt. A pretty bitter brew. P: Nothing wrong, lingers well O: Just a fantastic beer. On tap the taste is much better (4.7)

Bottle from St Fun.
Pours a decent yellow si, oh yes, with a nose of banana-thin body odor hops. Flavor is a full-on assault of grapefruit rind, orange rind, and grapefruit pulp. Nice but light mouthfeel. I see his stripes andI know heís clean; oh, canít you see what I mean?

Bottle... Poured golden/yellow with a thin head. This quite good. Solid bitterness and balance with noticeable rye flavor. The rye and hop bitterness worked well with either not overpowering each other. Light fruits and esters with bread-like malts and earthy hop tones.

Lots of grapefruits citrus flavors. Sticky but not cloying at all. Obviously there is rye in it too. Totally legit.

Itís pouring a hazy orange with over a 2 finger head of foam..I pulled it from the fridge about an hour ago.
The smell is all sorts of hoppy. Citrus, pine, volumes of tropical fruit pineapple is there for sure, and a nice spiciness from the rye. Overall, not overly bitter in the nose.
And then I taste it and all of what Iíve written is there as well as a very solid malty taste that adds just the right touch of sweetness. Wow, this is very tasty and Iím not getting much, if any, of a booze burn.
Full bodied with lighish carbonation, the mouthfeel is truly grand. Man, that rye really adds a great dimension to a DIPA. Thanks again, Tom! An awesome drinking experience is what I have here.
