A - Dark amber-copper color with a finger of frothy off-white head. Fades fairly quickly.

S - Grapefruit, tropical, citrus, pine, grassy, floral hops, sweet caramel and bready malts, a bit of booze.

T - Grapefruit, pineapple, tropical, orange, citrus, pine, and grassy hops, lots of resiny bitterness, sweet caramel and bready malts, brown sugar, a bit of booze.

M - Medium-full bodied, moderate carbonation. Smooth with a dry, bitter, and resiny finish.

D - Big, bold, and hoppy. Great complex hop profile and bitterness throughout.

Poured this Imperial IPA from a 375ml bottle into a pint glass. This IPA poured a cloudy orangeish color, produced a thick tannish head, and it featured above average retention and off the charts lacing. The aroma of this IIPA is full of hops. Everything I would expect with the name 1000 IBU- Despite all of the hop citric and piney aroma there is a nice bit of caramel malt that comes through. Medium bodied, a baseline fresh baked bread gives way to Piney ( and I mean Piney), citrus flavor. This is a very bitter brew, and i will add that the bitterness just does not show up for a moment and abruptly leave- the bitter flavor sticks to your mouth and throat almost the same way as its lacing sticks to the pint glass. (A LONG TIME) This is the most "bitter" IPA i have sampled thus far.Finishes dry, warming alcohol effect as you swallow. Excellent session beer,for anyone who loves hops....I suggest that you must try this. Shot out to my boy the St. Charles Whisker Biscuit for picking this up for me.

A: This beer has a reddish-amber clear body. It pours with a yellow-brown head with good lace and decent retention.

S: The scent of sweet caramel, strong pine and heat are the major notes backed up with some subtle floral characters.

T: This IPA has an interesting flavor profile. It starts out tasting like a very subtle IPA with some hoppiness and sweetness but then slowly the bitterness builds like a spicy pepper with increasingly intense piney hop flavor which is then balanced by the caramel sweetness that lingers on the tongue.

M: The beer has a medium body with light carbonation.

Overall this is a good IIPA but it could use a more complex hop flavor and use a bit more carbonation to balance that flavor.
