Golden amber color with an enthusiastic head in the tall Blanche de Chambly glass. Tangy and spritzy mouthfeel. Flowery, gardenia scent.

Sweet, crazy hoppy. It's like a tangerine float with hoppy Seven-Up. Moderately bitter but overflowing with hop flavors and aromatics. Warm malt, sweet yet zingy. Enough acid to balance the orange marmalade taste. A candy-like flavor-- what are those things-- Cotlets? Except without the powdered sugar, but very deeply fruity.

A thoroughly pleasing big IPA that is quite sippable in the style of a liqueur. From the 12 oz can purchased at the tasting room in Fremont, Seattle.

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a light haze and a light effervescence. Head poured a thick finger of creamy ivory foam with decent retention and which leaves a little lace as it dissipates.

Smell: big, rich, sweet malt with a decent amount of citrusy, piney hops. It's not too bad, but pretty standard for the style.

Taste: herbal, piney, resiny, citrusy hops; nicely strong but pretty smooth. Bitterness is good, although relatively low given the high hop content. Not bad at all.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a good carbonation and a really smooth, rich creaminess. I really like it.

Overall: a pretty good imperial IPA. I feel like the sweet malt and the various hop characteristics are a bit muddled, but overall it's good.

3.84/5  rDev -8.8%

Appearance: Pours an amber verging on golden with two fingers of foam capping the liquid; squiggles of lacing line the glass

Smell: Pine verging on cannabis

Taste: A hint of caramel malt is all there is and the rest is the hops, with the pine building powerfully in the middle; very hemp-like, after the swallow, with a medicinal aspirin finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I am not a fan of IPAs that bring on the aspirin bitterness so I have marked this one down a bit; still a decent beer but not top flight for me

Thanks, mabermud, for the opportunity
