Picked up a bomber of this during a search for anything labeled "Imperial". Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was typical for the type, smell was surprisingly subtle for the 10% abv. Where this bad boy stood out was taste, very smooth, with very little actual hop bite! The bottled on date was 04/15/14, so a little bit of age did this one well. Mouthfeel revealed a sweetness that reminded me of a barlywine style, not an IPA at all. Overall, I enjoyed this and would not hesitate to pick up again. I am curious how a fresher (one within 90 days of bottling) would be...but then again, it's outstanding past the 120 day point so...guess it's up to you to decide.
