12 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Clear, light golden body with a 2+ finger white head. Nice retention and smatterings of lacing along the glass.
Solid aroma that jumps out as soon as it is poured. Primarily tropical fruit notes like mango and pineapple dominate the aroma, but there is a light citrus and pine resin note in the background. Not much notice of the malt.
The flavor is just as good as the aroma. Very tasty blend here of rich hop flavors featuring the aforementioned tropical hops. A touch of grapefruit and lemon flavor balances the hop notes. A light malt backbone makes for a nice finish.
The mouthfeel is lighter than I expected for an Imperial brew. But, this drinks more like and IPA to me than a double. Still, a superb beer.
