4.23/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
4 oz. pour on tap at ChurchKey in NW DC into their characteristic snifter glass, drank over 30 minutes
A: 3/3 - golden-orange coloration; although it's dark on here, the clarity looks high; frothy white head on first pour eventually settles into a 1/4 finger glass lacing; tight white bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass throughout; large alcohol legs (especially for 7.4% ABV)
S: 10/12 - big IPL-ish mixture of PNW hops - citrus and piney, pils breadiness, lager yeast and alcohols
T: 16/20 - nice tickle of bitterness on the anterior tongue gives way to PNW hop flavors that match the nose; evolves with the pils toast followed by an alcohol sizzle; finishes dry and quick
M: 5/5 - thick hop oils comprise an imperial style; high carbonation --> bubble and effervescent, alcohol coating
O: 9/10 - solid imperial IPL that I've been eager to try for a while and this didn't disappoint; I'd put the intensity of the hop aroma and flavor up their with Jack's Abby's IPLs; recommended
TOTAL - 43/50
Serving type: on-tap
