4.59/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

I had this from the 750ml growler courtesy of tenderbranson69, enjoyed chilled in a willybecker.

The color is golden lemon meringue with thick 2 fingers of rocky white head while a web of lace sticks to the glass with fine bead. The smell is great with lots of hops- tons of citrus and dank herbal aromas with some tropical fruit which brings to mind pineapple mostly. The feel is great -resinous texture of copious hop oils with light sweet malt and semi-dry finish with moderate carbonation -the alcohol is hardly detectable and bitterness only really increases in the end with low astringency throughout.

The flavor is wonderful with a bevy of fruit from the hops which seems tropical up front but the flavor verges on grapefruit and slight tangerine with more pineapple and herbal flavors continuing throughout the taste with only a slight sweetness of malt and gentle astringent tea-like taste with an almost spicy element toward the finish which is dry - tons of juicy and dank hop flavors which are fresh and vibrant. Overall one of the best Imperial IPA's based on freshness and pure hop intensity without being an assalt of hop bitterness, very fresh and intense with lots of Mary jane type similarities from the cousin in this. The smell and moutfeel with only a little grassy hints in the finish.

Serving type: growler
