16 oz. standard pint glass, on tap at Tyler's Tap Room, Durham, NC.
A - Cloudy, amber-y orange/brown color, with just a hint of lace at the top of the glass.
S - Malt and citrus-y
T & M - Wow, first sip get a tremendous hit of citrus, specifically lemon, from the hops. It's almost astringent, but it blends quickly with the background sweetness before resolving into a hoppy, tongue-drying finish. You can tell that the alcohol is there, but it is fairly well-hidden (if I didn't know it was 9.5%, I would have guessed it was ~ 7%). Carbonation on this one is low, and it goes down pretty smoothly. This is a heavy beer though, and it thick and almost syrupy. Had it with Tyler's great blackened crab cake and have to say it was a perfect match.
D - Surprisingly drinkable given the ABV, but I suspect that would sneak up on you pretty quickly.
This is good, but not *great* imperial IPA; would prefer the hops to be a bit more prominent throughout the taste. Would definitely order it again though.
Serving type: on-tap

3.8/5 rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Fairly clear deep golden with a lingering frothy ivory head.
Aroma is resin, citrus, lightly floral, and malty.
Flavor has a strong, slightly sweet malty base, with notes of resin throughout. Citrus and bitterness are secondary.
Body is fairly full, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
Not as hoppy as I expected. Fairly sweet, and I hoped for more character.
