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.

Wow!! This one was a very pleasant surprise, after having Ethos, my expectations were that this one would be inferior, but in my opinion, that was NOT the case. One thing, I prefer piney IPAs vs grapefruity ones, which makes me biast in favor of this one.
As mentioned above, this has a piney hops flavor to this one, a lot like Sierra Nevada's Torpedo, which I adore. I'm not experienced with the ESB part, so I can't say much there, but overall, this beer absolutely hits the spot, and I will be a regular customer year round.
