Pours clear blonde with a few bubbles rising from the bottom. Decadent head on this one with great retention and splotchy thick lace. Nose is bountiful with hops , orange and tangerine citrus, caramel and toffee malt, a little pine and a little bread. As it warms the malt deepens adding a nice honey quality. Really friendly nose on this beer, almost courteous. Taste is earthy with hops, caramel and toffee. Hops are graceful and sweet on the palate and the bitter is just a touch. Finishes with oily pine, floral, grass and plenty of bread. This one has a smooth and silky mouthfeel, exceptional balance and is heavenly to drink with just the right amount of dryness and bitter. Subtle aftertaste that is juicy and fruity with melon and engaging with smooth malt.

A-A lightly tarnished orange with a thin cap of head.

S-The nose is attractive. Piney, grapefruits, bubblegum. A bit hempy and the citrus seems sweetly candied. Heavy on the hops.

T-I enjoyed the nose more. It seems to unravel a bit here. All the hop aromas in the nose don't really mix as well with one another. The malt is more noticeable here. There is a hefty dose of syrupy caramel and bread.

M-Full with sneakily strong bitterness. Hints of alcohol. Prickly carbonation.

O/D-Has its high points. Like its non-imperial brother, The Kind, Too Kind has some really neat pieces within its entirety. I was happy to try it despite its shortcomings in some areas.

A: This poured a clear gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like bitter citrus zest and copper hops, with some candied apricot.
T: It tasted like bitter citrus zest and candied apricot, with a little honey malt and copper hops. It had a fairly clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was moderately thick with a decent amount of carbonation. Good body.
D: This was a decent double IPA. Nothing special, but the scent and taste and body were all enjoyable. The finish was fairly smooth, and the alcohol was well hidden, so it was easy to drink. Not a bad brew, and considerably better than their standard IPA.

Bottle from Binghamton Beer Depot. From notes.

A - Poured bright and slightly dark golden. Two fingers of white head on top with good carbonation coming up. Great drapes of lace and a film of retention.

S - Big citrus, peach, orange, grapefruit, pine. All hops. Nice stuff.

T - Orange, citrus, peach, grapefruit, pineapple. Not much malt to speak of. Good hop complexity though, and quite tasty. Mild alcoholic note.

M - Nice carbonation. Full body is quite nice. Bitterness isn't gripping but present.

O/D - Well put together DIPA. No flaws to speak of really. Not flashy, just well made.
