Many thanks to Alex (page101) for hooking me up with this on an awesome trade! Beautiful amber-copper pour with two finger head with great retention and excellent lacing. I could smell this from across the room after I poured it. Tons of citrus, most noticeably grapefruit, tangerine, and pineapple with a solid caramel malt aroma as well. The head was extremely sweet and creamy on my first sip. The citrus is just as huge in the taste as it was in the smell with some additional pine with a hint of grass. A solid caramel malt backbone balances it out nicely. Excellent mouthfeel with a great creaminess and crisp, dry, bitter hop bite. The alcohol is extremely well hidden. Couple that with the great mouthfeel and you have one hugely drinkable Imperial IPA. Another great beer from one of the most underrated breweries in the country.
