Great stuff from this brewery. I would rank this imperial IPA at the top of my list.

From the can, it has great carbonation. Smells piney, and that was surprising, coming from a can. Taste is bitter, really bitter, and it also tastes like pines needles. Mouthfeel is very light. Easiest imperial IPA to drink. I could have four of those in a row.

Excellent product.

From a 12 oz can (best by September 20, 2014) into a nonic.

A-The beer is a hazed honey color. The head is quite sticky and dense with lots of clingy lacing on the glass and good retention. It looks resinous and oily.

S-The aroma is big on the hops as you would expect, but there is a nice balance of toasty, caramel malt flavor. As for hops, I get some orange zest, pine, leaf, and an oily aroma with a moderate amount of sharpness.

T-The taste is also nicely balanced between hops and malt. The hops are more leafy, oily, and piny than many IIPAs these days, but there is a nice, bright bit of citrus (orange juice) in there. A nice toast balances the hop assault. As the brew warms, a medicinal bit of alcohol creeps in, but otherwise the alcohol is well-concealed.

M-In a word, resinous. The body is medium to full in heft with a creamy, smooth carbonation and oily coating feeling.

O-In a world full of IIPAs, I found this one to be well above-average. I like that it is not a super citrusy me-too clone, but it does not beat you up with too much pine and bitterness, either. I mostly enjoyed the heavy, oily mouthfeel (although it did get a little old by the end of the can). This is a solid IIPA that I would definitely drink more of...if we could get it in Colorado
