4.26/5 rDev +13%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A - Carmine colored withe a trace of white head and scattered lacing. Clean and clear.
S - Grassy hops, grapefruit, some cinnamon.
T - Strong malt upfront, smooth and sweet but lacking in balance and crispness. A sugary feel in the aftertaste. Alcohol is pronounced, almost like a scotch ale. Hop bitterness is present but as an afterthought. Some hints of raisin and plum.
M - Light carbonation, which is perfect to enjoy the flavor profile. There also a tacky feel to this
This almost takes Imperial a bit too far, and the 10% ABV is sneaking up on no-one. Tasty - Yes. Is this losing its IPA roots - Yes.
Serving type: bottle

Had on draft at Lures on 7/2/14 in a short wide mouth glass
A-Pours cloudy amber with a decent off white frothy head that lingers long and leaves excellent lacing.
S-Aroma is pine, grapefruit, sweet floral and citrus hoppiness.
T-Taste is heavy sweet, with grapefruit, honey, and pine with a light malt.
M-Average carbonation, medium body, slick texture and a long sticky finish with overtones of grapefruit and honey.
O-Overall a decent DIPA a great blend of hops and malt that hide the 10%.
Serving type: on-tap
