Pours hazy gold with two inches of pure white fluffy head that slowly dissipates to ring the glass and etch it all the way down, leaving oily residue from the hops.
Smell is an explosion of tropical and piney hops; evergreen, guava, and pineapple. Lovely.
Pine is first followed by pineapple, then peppery alcohol burn. Slowly unfolds to resinous astringent tea-like bitters. Not much in the way of malt, but there is enough sweetness to balance the 86 IBUs and almost 10% alcohol.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin for such a big double-hopped big imperial, but I kept trying to just smell the beer and couldn't help but sip it. So it's also highly drinkable. It's just not as balanced between bitter and sweet, malt and hops. Assertive is an understatement.
