First off-I have had this beer a few times, and enjoyed it enough to do so. This rating is more in line with the norm for two reasons: 1, I enjoy the beer; 2, I have found I am generally understating vs the norm, and have never given a 5 rating to anything in any category (still). I am trying to adjust my scale to consider a 5 doesn't mean I have to achieve nirvana during drinking the beer. That said:

A: clear amber with good amount of head, resilient, with solid lacing
S: at this time, floral (little country-meadow-ish with some grass notes) and a little orange. Smells like "copper" to me a bit.
T/M: mild sweet up front malts, little caramel. Little orange notes in back of throat, maybe a hint of cherry right before... Resin feel comes in, to dry and tug on the tongue. This to me makes a good full beer, my opinion. Have a malt front backed by a mouth-pulling hops aftertaste that lingers long enough to remind you you just had an IPA.
O: mostly stated above. I have been a huge fan of Burton Baton for years, this beer reminds me of it. The malt-forward, hop-backed nature fits right into a more complex taste profile that interests me.

Mouth Watering Flower Aroma. Great Hoppy After Taste. This Is Now My Favorite Imperial iPA. I Would Liken The Taste To IthaCa Flower PoweR. The Flower Aroma Was Perfectly BalancEd By A Hoppy, Smooth After Taste. My Brother Who Doesn't Like IPAs Thought It Was Good.
