Bottle from trade. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy light orange with nearly no head. Big citrus hop aroma with serious floral notes. Very nice. Big up front bitter with a strong malt backbone on the finish. Pretty heavy IPA, with citrus, caramel, pine sap, sweet pears, mango, orange peel. Light prickly carbonation and majorly slick. Interesting brew. Definitely a big beer even for the imperial style.

I'm surprised this beer does not have higher review rating. First time having some and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Poured into IPA glass and right away smell the extreme hoppiness. However, it was not as bitter as I expected and had a sweet smooth finish. I feel the 11.5% alcohol was hidden very well. Impressed and will be having this one again...hopefully on tap next time.
