3.55/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Copper orange in color with just the slightest haze. Poured with a short white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Sweet caramel malt aroma with light resinous pine and citrus beneath. Medium bodied with smooth oily feel and light, subtle carbonation. Sweet caramel malt up front followed by citrus and then pine bop bitterness that longers a bit at the finish. This was a more malt forward DIPA.

Lower level on the Double IPA rung. Appearance is average. Not a whole lot going on in the nose. Nothing really pleasing about the taste of this beer. Unfortunately, just not a memorable Imperial IPA. Quite boring. Many, many better choices. Will not buy again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a vibrant, slightly hazy, copper coloring, with a steady flow of carbonation and a thin, low profile, white head. The aromas are sticky resin forward, solid tart and sweet grapefruit, pineapple, and tangy caramel in the backbone. Flavors are tropical fruit forward, with a solid dose of pineapple and grapefruit, followed by hints of booze, pine pitch, evergreen highlights, and a heavy hand of dank resin. The body is robust, with a slight edge from the carbonation. Tangy and resinous aftertaste, balanced throughout, with a slick, slightly oily, slightly lingering finish. There is a build to the hops profiles as you drink. Solid brew.
