a well balanced and aggressive IPA
A - clear, pale, good head that does not fade quickly, and a small amount of lacing down the glass.
S - hop forward, but not sharp or biting. subtle malty background.
T - Wow, what an IPA. This has so much hop flavor, but it isn't overly bitter at all. I was loving the hops so much that I had a hard time concentrating on the malts. However, the malts where there in undertones for sure and balanced the beer nicely. wish i had more than a tasting poor of this one.
M - smooth and refreshing. This was an IPA that could be swished around a few times and it would continue to develop. The carbonation was perfect. it was definitely present, but not overpowering.
D - I would drink several of these at once if they weren't so darned expensive. $6.99 for a single 12oz. bottle. If they come down in price, I will buy some. a fantastic IPA that i am happy i had the chance to try!

4.01/5 rDev +1.5%

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.
Appearance: utterly black with a finger of creamy dark-tan foam atop. Not much more you can ask of a beer.
Smell: rich and roasty, but not acrid, with a good sweetness underneath. Coffee and chocolate come through, along with a nice dark-fruitiness. I'm a fan.
Taste: much like the aroma, in that it is super roasty without being astringent or acrid. Specific coffee and chocolate notes are a little toned down from the aroma, but there's still that subtle element of dark fruit complexity that I like. Quite good.
Mouthfeel: big body with a decent carbonation and a good creaminess. Appropriate for a stout of this nature; I quite like it.
Overall: this is a pretty satisfying Imperial stout. I could see myself drinking more of this.
