4.22/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Lacking a snifter, tulip or oversized wine glass, I poured it into my big goblet.

A: Not much head on the pour, but a continual rising cascade of bubbles helped maintain a nice layer on the top. A golden honey hue in color. Just a slight opaqueness to it.

S: Potent, crisp early morning pine needle hoppiness, coupled with some rich, mead-like sweet fruit notes, like peaches and apricots. A little booze too.

T: A bitter punch in the mouth, I tell you - the sourness gave the heebie jeebies a little. Sweet honey flavors, not much maltiness, just crazy hops. It feels like I'm drinking liquid gold.

M: This aspect is the star of the show - perfectly thick, smooth, chewy, but not too much so. Just....nice. The carbonation is excellent.

D: I can't put away many of any double IPA, and it's the same for this one - it's clearly high quality but the sour aspects keeps me from wanting more.

4.35/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a deep clear gold with a thin and short lived white head. A little bit of lacing hangs on. The initial aroma is pure Cascade: deep and piney, but developing some malt depth as it warms and open up. The taste is equally big, with deep malts balance off of huge citrus and floral hops. It has nice solid weight to the body and is an excellent Imperial IPA.
