Appearance: Hazy golden orange color, with a large, persistent white head, and moderate lacing, and very slight carbonation.
Aroma: Sweet honey aroma, with mild herbal hops. The sweet malt notes dominate the aroma.
Taste: Opens with fairly strong pine tar hops, and lesser sweet honey and caramel malt. These remain well-balanced throughout the taste, there is a burst of pine tar hops at the end of the taste. The strong alcohol presence is very well concealed.
Mouth feel: Rich and almost syrupy, very smooth.
Drinkability/notes: A superb, well-crafted Imperial IPA, well worth a try, even for those who are not aficionados of the style.
Serving type: bottle

Got a growler on the way out of Portland, bring it on the plane !
Light orange, clear IPA. Nice 1/2 inch white foamy head poured into my 10 barrel medium side snifter.
Mild bite from the IPA, nice mild grapefruit, hoppy flavor, very pleasant to drunk, even though it is over 9 %.
Mouthfeel seems 'bout right, a little malty goodness when you 'foam' it up in your mouth.
I would drink this every time at the airport, a nice find there , will probably add it in the cart now, from time to time. Drink it !
Serving type: growler
