Another imperial ipa from knee deep. I wasn't impressed with Hoptologist but liked Simtra, so let's see where this one falls. Bomber to a snifter, bottled on 1/4/13

Pours a balanced coppery gold with a finer of foam. Really good color on this, right where a dipa should be. Very little carbonation, maybe a single bubble every three or four seconds. Foam has died down a bit, nice froth in the middle with a nice ring around the edges. Good lacing, with a bit longer of a retention time this would have been perfect

Aroma of hops, some spicy resin, lemon and orange zest, along with a subdued alcoholy malt. Some more floral hop and citrus come out as I agitate the glass

Taste is very boozy. Good amount of hops backed up with some sweet malt, but the alcohol is the first thing to stick out and the last thing to leave, not very concealed at all

Feel is full bodied with little carbonation. Good tongue tingle, sticky, nice finish. This isn't something I'd want to have more than a bottle of

This beer could really be a lot better. The alcohol is high and poorly masked with eclipses all the other flavors of the beer. Drop it down a couple percent and add more hoppy citrus. Frankly, this stuff isn't worth $10 a bottle, I'd advise against it if you paid what I did
