4.6/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: A copper colored look with a moderate amount of white head.
S: Fruit punch hop aroma. This smells like a great hop bill this year.
T: First starts out with strong grapefruit like hops. I tend to think the dry hops were different than the flavoring hops. The initial hop fades into some malt sweetness that balances well with the hops at this point the bittering hops hit the back of the tongue. The finish is sweet fresh tasting malt. The alc. is hidden until the warmth hits the tummy. Quite a ride!
M: Actually this actually feels fairly dry considering a 9% alc. The carbonation dances the flavors across the palate.
O: Wonderful flavor ride! This is a very fresh beer. (Canned this month I believe). I believe the best way to drink an imp IPA is as fresh as possible.
Serving type: can
