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.

Poured into my crystal mug, the beer is a clear deep golden color and builds a one finger high white head, which dissipates fast, but leaves very good lacing.
The smell is piney with fruit like peach and pineapple. Very inviting!
Tasting the beer, the fruit flavors hit first. The peach and pineapple notes are mingled with some citrus upfront. The middle has a malty backbone, but mild and subtle enough, not to overpower, but to nicely balance. In the finish some piney hops linger on the tongue, leaving a great aftertaste.
A really great medium bodied beer, which fits the style. The ABV us well hidden.
Great beer!

Sampled from a 22oz bottle purchased at Bittersweet Liquors in Greeley, CO.

A – Golden with good clarity and a sturdy white head. It looks alive with a good flow of bubbles and thick lacing.

S – Mostly piney hops with some citrusy and earthy characteristics. It really jumps out at you.

T – Rich and complex with piney and citrusy notes and a lurking sense of alcohol (yet even at 9.5%, it never fully reveals itself though it gets braver as it warms). The malt provides a proper foundation but stays well in the background.

M – Creamy, silky and even a bit oily.

O – An effective and impressive Double IPA that successfully tests the bounds of that style.
