Hazy and golden in color. Minimal head with a precise pour from a bottle into a snifter glass.
Smell is slightly bitter, but very fruity. Most prominent notes are orange peel, grapefruit. Whatever hops they use, I'm impressed.
Taste is velvety, floral, fruity, and bitter. It showcases a flavor profile that only a young Imperial can deliver. Fruitier than Heady Topper, Milder than Double Jack, smoother than anything from Lagunitas (and I'm a way bigger fan of Lagunitas than Stone, usually).
You'll appreciate the mouthfeel. It sticks around and makes you want the experience to last longer. Finish is long and memorable.
Overall, it's a great beer, but a bit pricier than several competitors that offer similar young double IPAs for half the cost. That being said, if it's the only beer I'm drinking that evening, it's a solid choice. It doesn't leave me wishing I ordered something else.
