Pours a mild amber with a one-finger head into my glass. Average color for the style. I always like the brighter ones.

A lot of pine hop essence upfront in the nose. Not much to go by otherwise. The ABV is the first sign that this may not actually be an Imperial IPA.

The taste reflects the aroma. There is more of a focus on pine than citrus with the hop selection.

Bitterness with biscuity bread make up the mouthfeel. Wow. The alcohol is still quite strong, despite the lack of ABV.

Hopheads should definitely check this out.

7 C-hops in all: Crystal, Cluster, Cascade, Chinook, Centennial, Columbus, Challenger, at 100 IBU.
This billing alone is mouth-watering. The aroma lends grapefruit mostly, citrus on the palate, smooth creamy finish. Lacing was very persistent, and a bomber wasn't nearly as much as I would've liked. A real treasure overall.

Poured from a bomber into a weizen glass. Reviewed live.

A- Pours out a lovely finger width white head with a dark copper body with high clarity underneath. Thick sheets of lacing that look very nice. Appealing.

S- Pine and citrusy hops. Some peaches and pineapple make for a fruity, floral IPA. Very pleasant. Some dark bodied malts make themselves heard as well, but not loudly.

T- Strong malty backbone with piney and smooth bitter hops. Complex, not overwhelming and actually quite drinkable for a DIPA.

M- Creamy, very wet and smooth. Nice feel.

O- Very drinkable DIPA, tasty, nice smell, great feel. Really quite nice.
