Served this 22 oz. brown bottle in a Sierra Nevada Hops glass. No date. The body was pale honey and clear of haze. The modest head was off-white.

The smell was of pine and marmalade. Alcohol was present.

The taste mirrored the aroma. Candied citrus but also significant sweetness. Nicely complimenting flavors of pungent hops and deeply fruity sweetness.

The body was rich, medium to full bodied. Adequately carbonated.

A: Poured a white fluffy one finger head. Carbonation appears to be macro-bubbles that dissipate rather quickly. Color is a chestnut, carrot light orange. Lacing is great just 5 minutes after the pour.

S: Intoxicating. Explosive citrus, honey, malt, and HOPS! The nose on this beer really is fantastic. Is it the force? Yes, tap into it.

T: Ski lodge piney resin, oak, caramel, orange peel, bready malt and lingering mint.

M: Creamy, resiny, and sticky. Carbonation is well balanced like a Swedish massage on the tongue.

O: Some have described as 'sneaky' due to the high ABV. I prefer the term...'Assassin'. You won't even know until it’s too late.

Had on tap at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore, MD

A- Light straw color with a crisp white head. You could put this next to a bud light and get it confused due to it's super clarity. However one distinction that clearly would separate it from a water beer (BL) is the lacing. This one is off the charts.

S- Pure hop aroma- Like taking a handful of hops and just shoving them up your nose. I can smell this beer from 2 feet away. Very enticing.

T- Nice hop flavor, the sugars come to play and really balance the flavor out, not overly bitter but it does come through on the finish. Citrus flavor has a toastiness to it.

M- Medium to full body with some creaminess. Very smooth finish.

O- Great beer. Drinkable even as it warms. Fantastic. You know you have a great beer when you can sit for an hour and it still tastes great.

Enjoyed this 650ml bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a clear copper hue with a white, 2-finger head that last forever and ends in a persistent lace.

S: Strong hoppy aroma with a citrus background..

T: Heavy on the alcohol and very hoppy. Lemons and citrus dominate the backbone of this beer..

M: Very strong and boozy. Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Solid imperial IPA. Very strong yet blended nicely with the hops and malt to be easily drinkable.
