12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint glass.
A - Tall and tight off-white head holds beautifully. The pour goes right through a whole cone hop in the neck of the bottle resulting in a hazy amber beer. Tons of sticky lacing all the way down.
S - Splendid wet feel to these hops. I get nice citrus and pine but an underlying flower like bouquet. Toasty malts also sit in the background.
T - Malt plays an important role in this beer. It comes across as very toasty with a dry feel to it. The malt carries through nearly the entirety of the flavor. Hops show up early and are citrusy here as well. The flavor finished up with a melon/pine hop note and some spicy alcohol. The bitterness is present throughout the whole flavor and although it finishes with a strong bitterness it never becomes overly sharp.
M - Semi-dry, medium to medium-full bodied, medium carbonation.
O - Excellent looking beer and also a cool perk having a hop cone in the bottle. Great freshness to the beer. Balanced yet hop forward and spread out bitterness instead of all at the backend.

Pours murky golden amber with a thick, foamy head. Lacing sticks. Two hop cones float it in. The floating, soggy hop cones detract from the appearance, in my opinion.
The smell is of pine and caramel. Robust.
The taste is piney, spicy, citric. Caramel backing balances it. Some alcohol shows in the potent finish.
On the thin side for an imperial, but it holds together well enough for a long, hoppy finish.
Overall, a good Imperial IPA.
