Acquired through a trade.

A: Great Clarity, clear, golden/copper color. 1 finger head that faded quickly. No lacing.

S: Tart, Complex, citrus fruit, sweet

T: Less fruity than the smell, citrus and tart aftertaste, big hop presence with a strong hop aftertaste.

M: Clean, Medium carbonation, hoppy bite.

O: Great beer, Great flavor, but drinkability isn't good enough for this beer to be as highly rated as it is.

A- pours a hazed orange amber color with a finger of bone white head. Good retention with solid lacing.

S- big orange/tangerine hop aromas with hop resin and floral notes. Dry biscuity malt sits under the pungent hop aromas.

T- sticky hop resin, citrusy tangerine/orange and grapefruit smack the palate. Slight malt sweetness in the middle with a biscuity characteristic. Prickly hop bitterness and lingering citrus peel hop flavor on the long lasting finish.

MF- slick juicy mouthfeel light medium body and good medium carbonation.

D- super drinkable

Overall an exceptional double IPA.

A: Hazy orange with a finger of creamy white head. Nice sticky lacing.

S: Huge pine notes, grapefruit, and citrus.

T: Citrus overwhelms the front half. Nice fruitness that mixes well with the piney floral hops. Nice betterness with no signs of booziness.

M: Medium body with a low to medium amount of carbonation.

O: Great Imperial IPA, not too strong, great blend and great beer, I want more than a 4 pack!!!!
