. Pours pretty enough. Reddish orange with a thin head of khaki foam that falls fast. Nose is very sweet fruit. Floral and just a sugary sweetness. Hard to name a fruit. The malt is caramel and also smells sweet. There's no herbal no depth. Just sweet and a touch of alcohol fumes. Taste is cough syrup. Sickeningly sweet fruit meets hop bitter. The caramel is thick and pronounced and then fades out to the alcohol on the palate and the hop bitterness that over rides s the fruitiness. it's got way too much alcohol. it was hard to rate the mouthfeel. For a 12 percent beer it had a 12 percent mouthfeel. For an IPA it had a syrupy sluggish and very slow mouthfeel with some stickiness. Tasted awful and I actually made a face.

Thank you Roguer for the chance to try this beer.

Pours dark for an India Pale! This got me excited. Then the smell got me excited - smells like some of the best IPAs I've had... Pliny, Double Jack... this one's up there. The taste meets and/or exceeds expectations. Maybe a little on the sweeter side, but if that were adjusted more to my taste she'd be getting a perfect 5. Can't be just handing those out to anyone. Still can't believe this beer doesn't score higher. Very creamy mouthfeel with a tickling carb. Awesome brew. Try it if you get the chance.

Pours hazed dark reddish/orange amber. A thin head becomes a wide lasting patch.

The smell is of pine caramel and grapefruit.

The taste of pine and grapefruit mix with a heavy hand of caramel and alcohol.

It is full-bodied. Raw. Alcohol cuts into the body.

A solidly strong Imperial IPA.
