4.15/5 rDev +7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Translucent copper hue with very light effervescence and a big frothy three finger off-white head.
Aroma: Lots of pine and some earthy hop notes. Caramel malt and just a good barley presence. The aroma seems slightly subdued but is very clean nonetheless. Reminiscent of DFH 90 Min.
Taste: The bitterness shows up immediately and carries through from beginning to end. The hops flavor here is just like in the nose, earthy with very nice pine accents. Like sucking on a pine cone or the smell of an evergreen tree. Its quite robust, especially for 7.2% ABV, and delivers a nice malty flavor to balance the hops and the 93 IBUs. Caramel malt and that hearty barley flavor. Good balance of flavors.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied and a tad syrupy. Average drinkability. Smooth.
Final Thoughts: Really enjoying this one. For a fully robust Imperial beer, it has a relatively low ABV which makes it easier to have in larger doses (it comes in a 16 oz can). Would I drink it again? Yes, it might even make a good substitute for DFH 90 since I can't get that here.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
16 oz. can into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a clear amber with a nice two finger frothy white head that fades to a delicate lace on the sides of the glass.
S: Malty up front with caramel sweetness, but also touches of citrus and some piney hops.
T: Nice citrus with orange and grapefruit balanced with pine and earthy bitterness. The malt isn't as strong as I expected as the hops take over.
M: Medium bodied and smooth with a nice crisp bitterness. Goes down easily.
O: Really solid beer...definitely more IPA than Imperial ESB but solid nonetheless!
