Very solid, enjoyed this more than Stone 18. This was the perfect Imperial IPA. It came with he hops, the bitterness, the floral aspect, and a nice not over powering malt character.

This looks, tastes, smells, feels, and kicks exactly as an imperial IPA should. It's fantastic, and well worth the price tag.

A - Pours a copper orange with some haziness. Nice spotty filmy lace after each sip.

S - Big citrus nose, highly resinous, floral, caramel.

T - Layers of citrus zest, hop resin, balanced by a semi sweet malts and caramel flavor. bitter drying finish.

O - Really a solid DIPA and my first voyage from this brewery. I'd get this brew again (if they made it) and I'd definitely want to try anything they make.
