Poured into a snifter. Began reviewing halfway through bottle, after letting it warm up significantly.
Appearance: Golden yellow, barely fading to amber in color. Light, white head develops and lingers, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on top.
Aroma: Deep piney hop scent. Not overwhelming, and definitely enjoyable, but nothing fantastic. I'm catching a very mild fruit flavor in there as well, peach maybe?
Taste: At first light and citrusy, the heavy taste of the hops hit soon after, leaving a bitter streak down your tongue and slightly in the back of your throat. It's definitely got some power even for a double IPA. The pine and hop taste sit in the back of your throat long after sips. Slight numbing of the tastebuds and roof of the mouth are becoming noticeable.
Mouth-feel: There's a special crisp to it that's enjoyable at first, then the heavy hop flavor comes through right after and washes it away. The lingering of the hops leaves a heavy feeling in your mouth, quite different than the beginning taste.
Overall Impression: I'm guessing when they say 'pilsner-based Imperial IPA' they mean the type of yeast. I'm not usually a huge fan of pilsners at all, so it's interesting to me to finally taste a super hopped up version of it that's actually enjoyable. While it's definitely worth trying, the overall taste is a bit too much. I feel that the beer doesn't evolve over the course of drinking it, it always seems to keep with the hopped flavor, but I did find it worth trying. It definitely really shines once it's warmed up. Don't think I could drink multiples of these in a single night though.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Pours dark orange with a little haziness and a nice white head. Leaving a bunch of lacing as the head fades. The first thing that I smell is caramel malts followed by some pine and citrus. On first sip I thought that it was a bit malty but as drink it's really growing on me. The hops are there and although this beer doesn't quite have the hop presence that I tend to like this beer is really good. It finishes relatively dry leaving a perfect bitterness on your tongue that makes me want more and more. Overall this beer is very balanced and drinkable.
