A garnet amber brew with a great tan head. It pours clear with a slight fog showing all it's carbonation streaming to the surface. Nice webbing that sticks to the glass and lingers forever.
Juicy fruit gum, tropical fruits and toasty grains... This brew has some great Imperial IPA scents. Personally I like my IIPA's to be punch you in the face bold but this one is super just the same.
Flavor is good but slips even further from the bold mark that I prefer. Pineapple and toasted cereal balance each other and a tart hop bitterness rounds out the package.
The mouthfeel is prickled with a well deserved dose of hop bitterness and an even healthier dose of carbonation. The hops really have a hold on this brew and the finish reflects the bitter cones presence. Not the best IIPA but a damn fine one. So glad I got to check this one out.
