4.25/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on January 4, 2013.
It pours a fairly cloudy pale yellow-amber with a decent but short lived white fizzy head. It looks exactly like an IPA should so give that a 5.0.
The aroma is like a volcano of floral, perfume, bitter hops tearing through my nostrils like a nasal spray through a stuffy nose. Woah! Is that strong! Also a tad zingy.
The body is around medium and is also creamy.
The taste is a carnival of hops with a low profile grainy character that is like David when compared to the Hop Goliath. But in this case Goliath wins.
I can see why hop lovers give this a world class rating. Me, I like my hops to be more subtle and balanced rather than the entire package. But when it comes to being an Imperial Double IPA it has to be one of the best anywhere.
