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.

Served in a snifter on draft at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is an orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Awesome lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Tropical, floral, citrus, grassy, pungent, tangerine, grapefruit, candied orange, toasted, caramel malts, and a little alcohol.

Taste: Same as above with mild tingly bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, mild mild tingly bitterness, and just a hint of alcohol.

Overall: For an 18th anniversary, this was a delicious and fine choice. Got to get more of it before it disappears.
