4.47/5  rDev -0.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured out of a growler into my Duvel tulip.

A – Slightly dark golden tan color with a bit of a haze. Fluffy, stark white one full finger head that sticks well to the glass.

S – Floral, hoppy and a nice grapefruit aroma. Very nice all around.

T – Packs a solid hop punch right out of the gate. Grapefruit all over it. Nice subtle floral sweetness. Bit bitter punch at the end. As it warms there is a trace of a butterscotch like flavor. Very nice.

M – Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Crisp on the palate. Drying at the end. Damn refreshing.

O – Very nice all around brew that has a nice bitter punch and is extremely refreshing. Leaves you wanting more. Love it.

Poured from tap at TBC into a TBC Pint.

Color: Hazy orange with a white head.

Smell: Hops and citrus.

Taste: Very hoppy with a great citrus tone.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation, smooth and dry on the palate.

Overall: Went to TBC celebrating my brother's birthday with some delicious Belgian Imperial IPA! Very well balanced and smooth. Had the great hop , citrus and dryness I love in an IPA. Everyone in our group enjoyed this brew. Another outstanding brew by TBC. Cheers!

Poured into pint glass at the brewery.

Appearance: Hazy orange color. Very caramel-like. Great off-white head that dissipates to little or no lacing.

Smell: I really liked the smell. It definitely smelled yeasty, but the citrusy hops dominated tremendously. Smelled very much like a great IPA.

Taste: A little sweet at the front, but turns into a very, very bitter finish. The bitterness put me off a bit. Hoppy throughout though which I enjoyed.

Mouthfeel: I found it to be pretty light-bodied. Good carbonation. Very refreshing.

Overall: A very good Belgian Imperial IPA. Hoppy and smooth; great combination. TBC has done a great job once again.
