Much floral coming through. Wish it was in a better way. Not as hoppy or citrusy as I expected for an imperial IPA. Something is a miss, a revisit may be in order~

Bottle > Pint Glass
A - Pours a nice golden orange, thin soapy half a finger of head, little lacing.
S - Big juicy citrus up front, then some really sweet candied fruit, some alcohol, other sweet malt, definitely a dank quality to the hops.
T - Not bad, the 9.5% doesnt really come through in taste which is great, a nice bitter and tart citrus punch in front, big sweetness in the middle, finishes on the drier side.
M - Very clingy sweetness, mild bitter aftertaste.
O - Solid double IPA that packs a punch, and is still a bang for your buck.
