A: Pours a great orange amber color, with a nice creamy tan head about one finger, some slight laceing on glass.

S: Aroma is of sweet malts and citrus hops.slight caramel notes.

T: Taste is Highly hopped citus and piney mix with a subtle malty backbone holding it all together.

M: Mouthfeel isa bit on the thinner sidebut very nice.

O: Overall a very hoppy and enjoyable beer, I know the hop craze is getting out of popularity with some folks but I still love the big hoppy beers. Very well balanced with a very enjoyable taste.

On tap in Denver.

A: Clear copper, a little haze to it. Nice foamy head that lasts a while.

S: Malt stands out over the hops. Usually I prefer my IIPAs the other way around.

T: Malt forward beer. But still a decent imperial. Alcohol isn't noticeable at all.

M: Creamy. Nice carbonation.

O: Pretty good stuff. At $3 a snifter during happy hour, I'll be back to get this again.
