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.

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.
