The beer comes in a rich red amber.

The aroma has big sweetness, resinous pine with a hint of citrus.

The flavor hits of a big sugary sweetness that sticks on the lips, but not too heavy of malt. Lots of spicy hops and resinous pine. Hints of citrus and grapefruit.

A big sweet and sticky DIPA, if that is for you.

Poured from a bomber bottle into an IPA glass. Purchased for ~$9 at B's Craft Beer Lounge in Langley, BC.

Appearance - slightly cloudy amber with a nice, thick white head. Great lacing.

Smell - Big hop smells. Citrus, pine, tropical fruits, grainy caramel/toffee. Mouth-watering.

Taste - Very juicy. Big hop flavors. Maltier than the nose hinted, with caramel toffee and sweetness coming through. Not outshining the hops, though. Tropical hop flavors dominate the palate - mango, passionfruit, pineapple, tangerine with strong pine and grapefruit also present.

Mouthfeel - Medium-full body, good carbonation

Overall - Fantastic Imperial IPA. Big and juicy, on the sweeter side. Would buy it again and actively seek it out.
