look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: A deep orange/brown with a nice head that is lingers. This beer is also creating some really nice lacing.

S: Floral and citrus hop smell is the only thing I can detect in the aroma. A smell I happen to like a lot, but not a very complex beer. It pretty much has me making the assumption the only flavor will be intense bittering hops.

T: There is an off flavor in this that is pretty strange and I am not sure how to describe it. The booze is definitely noticeable in the middle of the taste and the finish is extremely dry and bitter with floral hops.

M: This beer feels pretty average in my mouth and how I would expect the style to feel. It may feel a little thinner and watery than other Imperial IPA's I have had, but not bad.

O: This isn't one of my favorite Imperial IPA's I have ever had, but its not bad. The alcohol is definitely noticeable in the taste, which isn't a terrible thing, but it's not a great one either. The main flavor is extreme bitterness which I like but it's pretty one sided. A lot more complexity could be present and that much hop flavor could easily hide any flaws. An okay beer.
