look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear medium amber in color, with a moderate, persistent, dense off-white head. Thick, sticky lacing adorns the glass walls. The carbonation is slight and slow-rising.

Aroma: Dense caramel opens the aroma, along with delicate tropical fruit notes and pungent pine tar hops. There is more than a bit of spicy and vinous alcohol, to be expected, considering the high ABV.

Taste: Sweet caramel, and spicy alcohol immediately present at the opening of the taste. Soon after, a strong wave of light tropical fruit and pine tar, both courtesy of the hops, present. As the taste progresses, the sweet alcohol and hops vie for supremacy, with the caramel fading a bit. Finishes with a long, lingering tropical fruit and pine tar hop flavor, and sweet alcohol.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very full, pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A fine example of an Imperial IPA and a wonderful accompaniment to a cold autumn day.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twenty-two ounce brown glass bomber with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
