3.54/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Huge head on the beer, a dark orange/amber color, pretty hazy with visible carbonation.

Citrusy hop aroma with orange as the predominant character. Some sweet malt in the background as well.

Taste is milder than I would have expected from the aroma, it's very smooth with a strong citrus hop flavor that's balanced by sweet malt. Finishes with a sweet flavor that's close to honey.

I enjoyed this beer, it hides it's 8.2% ABV well. Not my favorite IIPA but I will come back for this one.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a golden orange, very clear 3 finger head. Dense off-white bubbles.

S- Plentiful notes of tropical fruit, also floral and piney notes.

T- Wow! This Imperial IPA has great balance. Sweet up front, tropical beauty, followed by bitter hops, then a well balanced malt backbone with a dry finish.

O- Quite good Imperial IPA. Worth trying, reasonably priced.
