12oz bottle into a tulip glass.
A - Pours a clear gold/amber color with a beatiful, large, snow-white, and rocky head which leaves an excellent lacing on the glass. 4.5/5
S - A lot of aromatic hop dominating some toasted malt. A bit disappointing in terms of complexity... 3.5/5
T - Sugar is well present up front with notes of toasted malt. Then hop shows up with a lot of flavors and ends with a slightly hash/astringing feeling. Alcohol adds some spiciness to it. 4.5/5
MF - Medium body with a good carbonation. Bitterness is quite hash at the finish but kept reasonable. Feeling could be slightly smoother. 4/5
O - The excellent mix of flavors lingers and makes this beer a solid Imperial IPA. Only the aroma is a bit disappointing. If you're a hop lover, seek it out, it won't disappoint you! 4/5
