Thanks Slatetank for gifting me with a can of this. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a clear copper color with white sudsy froth and patchy lace sticking all over the glass.
The aroma is composed of pine, herbs and a grassy sort of cantaloupe or melon feel begore getting floral and fruity as it warms up. This brew's nose is all about the hops in a strange not so unified way but it is unique and enjoyable.
The flavor starts off a little unexpected with toffee malt then blending to bitter pine, pith, grassy notes and a bit of yeast. A sort of melon flavor is midpalate like cantaloupe before getting more fruity and floral towards the finish.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall a decent brew that I appreciate getting the chance to try. Thanks again Matt for the share.

I purchased this at Yankee Spirits in Montpelier VT, poured chilled from the can into a cervoise.
The color is a radiant golden with amber highlights and thick rocky white head with very fine bead, lace sticks well. The smell is pungent with mango, pineapple and citrus hop aromas with some faint malt sweetness and gentle alcohol accenting. The feel is great, not extremely bitter yet has a nice spiced texture with low malt in the feel and mild alcohol with a semi-dry finish.
The taste is very good with plenty of hop flavor interwoven in the layers of herbal, tropical and citrus with some gentle hints of grassy hop and spice with an almost pine-like taste which teeters between pineapple and grapefruit juiciness. The taste of alcohol becomes more apparent as it warms but at 8% it is still not overboard for the strength. I like this a lot, a high quality Imperial Ipa, very drinkable and packed with hop flavor, not just bitterness.
