Picked this up at a great beer store, Tops Liquor, while at a conference in Phoenix. Nice copper, ruby pour with a huge caramel colored head and great lacing. Lots of floaties in this one. The nose is all fresh hops and resin with a touch of malty caramel sweetness. One of those beers you enjoy with your nose also. The taste is, as expected, all bitter hops, at least initially. But it becomes nicely balanced while retaining a nice bitter finish. Nicely complex with loads of bitter hoppy resin and pine offset by some nice caramel maltiness. A unique taste that definitely stands out amongst Imperial IPA's. Hugely drinkable, smooth and creamy, and a little chewy at the same time. As always, Mikkeller has come up with a world class beer. Still one of my favorite breweries that I wish I could get more regularly.
