3/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

appearance a light caramel color with about an inch of head.

smell for an imperial ipa i would have thought of it to have a much more hoppier than it was... somewhat dissappointed in that

taste somewhat of a malty, mild hop taste. being not much a malt fan i thought it was ok for an imperial ipa

mouthfeel a smooth beer for a 10% abv..

drinkability being that it a 10% imperial ipa not many would be able to be had....maybe as a night cap

On tap at Quotations.

A-Pours a hazy, caramel apple amber with virtually no head.

S-Brown sugar, caramel. Wait, this is a DIPA. Where are the hops?

T-Very malty with caramel notes and some pine hops in the finish. Also unexpectedly boozy.

M-Medium to full bodied, coats the tongue.

D-Too hot and heavy, and not in a good way.

22oz bottle.

Poured a medium to deeper orangish/amber color with a huge sized (5 finger) off white head. Aromas of foral hops, citrus, toasted malts, and lightly earhty. Tastes of floral hops, toasty, caramel, citrus, and a little 'sugary'. Overall the alcohol was well hidden.
