Poured from bottle into a snifter

Appearance- Pours a deep brown color with a one half finger tan colored head. The head fades over a three minute time period to leave a moderate of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell- The aroma is very nice. It is a great combination of some darker, sweeter and hoppier smells. The darker aromas are of a roasted malt and strong chocolate smell and the sweet are a mix of tangerine and caramel with some candied sugar smells. The hop rounds out these sweeter and darker aromas well, with it being biggest of a citrus grapefruit with a nice blend of herbal and earthy hop mixed within.

Taste – The taste begins with roasted malt and a lighter caramel and sweeter citrus taste. As the taste advances the sweeter flavors fade with some coffee coming to the tongue as well as some hoppy tastes of a grapefruit and earthy nature. These flavors take to the taste to its end where the citrus hop gets stronger in nature and is joined by some herbal tastes. Along with the hop flavors that come at the end so too does a semi-sweet chocolate flavor which in the end, when combined with the rest, leaves a bitter roasted flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The creaminess and thickness of the brew is on the slightly lighter side for an imperial IPA with a carbonation level that is average for a normal brew, but a tad too high for an imperial. A lower carbonation level and a thicker body would likely have been nicer for the darker flavors and abv of the brew by really giving the hoppy tastes a chance to permeate the tongue.

Overall – The aroma of the beer and the flavors up to the very end of the taste were fantastic. The weaker mouthfeel and somewhat unbalanced end/aftertaste of the brew hinder it from being a truly great brew though. Regardless of this it is a tasty beer and well worth a try.
