A: hazy gold. big white head that has stuck with it. little patches of lacing down the side of the glass. minimal/no carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass.
S: grapefruit juice. green tea. big bouquet of roses and lilies. this bitch is pungent.
T: a sticky mess of grapefruit and citrus. equally as pungent on the palate as in the nose. a lingering touch of sweetness peeks it's head out between the sheets of bitterness. i love big american hops. and this one has plenty.
M: fizzy, but it doesnt even matter on this body.
D: oh boy, i could see how i could get in trouble drinking these all night. strong enough to do damage. delicious enough to enjoy the damage.

On tap at Tap Room in Dublin OH during lunch.
Amazing beer. I now know again why this is one of my favorite beers of all time. After being duped a few weeks ago with buying a bottle that was from 2013 and throwing my tastebuds for a twist, this redeemed that experience. Its a huge beer at 9.4%, but the tast is just out of this world. After that year old, I took a sip of this, and was expecting just a mouthful of bitter hops (which would have been fine!), but then there was the more complex aspect. There was something else in there to cut that biterness a little, but didnt take away from the double IPA flavor. There was a fruity aspect in it, after the initial bitter hop taste. Not fruity like a belgian IPA, but fruity like a cross between a peach and a grapefruit that had sex with a hop plant and brought forth a forbidden fruit - a fruit/hop hybrid that we have all grown to love.

Poured bottle dated 5/29/14 into IPA glass. Not quite fresh but this is New Hampshire, so that will have to do. Slight white foam head and minimal lacing. Beautiful aroma of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is of strong grapefruit and warm burn from the alcohol. Mouthfeel is peppery and a little carbonation as well. Overall, a very well done Imperial IPA that I'm glad I got to try!
