look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head which slowly fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A ripe, juicy, and dank hop forward aroma with big hints of citrus and pine. Upfront citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, lemon, pineapple, tangerine, and apricot. Dank and spicy pine resin along with some grass and floral hints. Sweet malt background with hints of sweet caramel, grains, yeast, and cracker. Very hop forward and juicy. A pretty good aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a very ripe, juicy, and dank hop dominated taste with big notes of citrus, pine, and grass. Citrus hop presence with big notes of grapefruit, orange pulp, mango, pineapple, apricot, lemon, tangerine, and melon. Big dank presence of spicy pine resin and grass. Sweet malt backbone with notes of caramel, grains, yeast, cracker, and slight honey. Very juicy and bitter. A pretty good hoppy taste.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy, oily, and drying on the finish. Somewhat boozy as expected with the 13% ABV.
Overall: A very good imperial IPA. Huge juicy hops all over the place. Not for the faint of heart but great for a hop head.

Pours dark orange, decent light beige head that goes (not too fast) to a nice lace, with lots of traces on the glass.
Fruity hop smell from afar. Close in and you get huge tangerine, pineapple, sweet peach, extra faint tropical notes too, grapefruit, fruit jam, caramel, warm alcohol (not too much tho), faint pine and breadiness.
Starts really sweet, full off peach and tangerine jam, pineapple syrup, faint papaya and passion fruit, grapefruit and oranges (with lots of bitter peel later on). Strong alcohol and bitter hops settle in, both rather pleasant, not disturbing. Big green profile, leafy, dank, touch of pine, big hop oils, with a really big bitterness in the end. The alcohol helps push the fruitiness through the bitter "barrier", leaving lots of the sweet tastiness in the aftertaste, at the cost of some extra booziness.
Medium body, a bit oily, medium carbonation. Alcohol is almost anesthetic towards the end, really piles up, so be careful. So does the syrupy sweetness.
Lots of tasty hops and almost decently handled huge abv, quite a monster of a beer.

Beautiful IPA: nice white head, slightly hazy orange body.
Hoppy aroma with sweet caramel and biscuit as well.
Incredibly sweet, from malts to hop profile to sugar. Fruity, tropical, thick and syrupy. The bitterness is overwhelmed by the sweetness.
Sticky and syrupy.
This reminds me of Devil Dancer: potent, incredibly sweet, and hoppy. Too sweet for my tastes.

A: orange. Clear. Medium-small frothy head. Great lacing throughout drink.
S: herbal. a bit of alcohol
T: fruity. Sweet. Mango, orange and residual sugar dominate the palette. Warming alcohol flavors at the end. Balanced extremely well.
M: medium carbonation. Medium-heavy body. Sweet.
O: probably one of the best imperial IPA's that I have tried. The balance between hops, malt, and alcohol is impeccable. Bravo. Would have rated higher if aroma was more prevalent.
