This one is dusky amber-orange and thick in the body, a darker and what's become more the norm for the style. The head is just a shade or two from white, a foamy half-finger that holds up well and leaves good lacing in its wake.
The aroma and flavor are good, and this is a solid IPA that just needs more punch. Grapefruit with some orange rind zest balances caramel malts, with a bit more juicy hops in the taste along with light resinous bitterness.
The mouthfeel is fluffy and pretty creamy in the medium body, and that without sacrificing crispness, but a graininess that builds up keeps it from being as clean as it could be.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a dark caramel, murky color with three fingers of khaki white head. Lots of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled earthy rye malts, caramel, toffee, lemon, citrus, tangerine and some unknown spices.

Tasted earthy rye hops, caramel, orange rind, lemon, citrus and slight dried apricot.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long finish.

A pretty good earthy imperial IPA. A couple of my ratings probably could have been a bit higher.
