All I have to say is this...

8.5% yet it drinks like a 6%. The aroma is the best part of this beer. Very drinkable. This is one you have to be careful with. It's very easy to drink quickly. My only complaint is that they call it an imperial iPa. Ibu seems a little light for that.

A - Pours a hazed golden orange with the slightest hint of amber with a nice finger of tan head, dense with great retention.

S - Tons of great tropical/citrusy fruit, thats 90% it but its really great smelling. Somewhat resinous as well, smells like a damn fine DIPA, definitely a bit more reserved on the malts.

T - Just a great, juicy tropical citrus flavor up front, fairly extreme bitterness/resinous qualities set in soon afterwards and linger through the finish and aftertaste. Very simple but very tasty.

M - Incredibly refreshing, decent carbonation, very drinkable, not quite medium bodied IMO. Well done at 8.5%.

O - Not too complex, not very unique, but a really nice, hop intensive DIPA. Almost want to give it a 4.5

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a medium copper hue with a on finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a balmy pine with a secondary tropical fruit.

The taste provided a resinous piney hop at the front with a fade to the tropical fruit and an eventual appearance of toasty caramel.

The mouthfeel was toward the cleaner side of the style.

Overall a nice even tempered DIPA.
