Served in a snifter at The Avenue in Allston.
Appearance: A small head was poured on the beer that is for the most part still there. It is a pale yellow orange with a little haziness to it and good vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super tight lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Tropical and citrus. Mango, peach, tangerine, grapefruit, and pine followed by sweet and bready pilsner malts. The floral bouquet on thus beer is fantastic.
Taste: Same as above with some mild hoppy bitterness in the rear. Nice balance to the beer too.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, chewy, medium bodied, a little tingly bitterness, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Me likey this double imperial. Smelled great, but the flavor was a tad lesser that what I smelled. I could drink several of these every day.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to jlindros. Pours a bright yellow gold color. It's quite transparent. There's some sediment at the bottom of the bottle, but a gentle-ish pour didn't disturb it and cloud things up. Big puffy white head. Lots of lacing. Big clumps on the walls of the glass. Excellent retention. Floral and citric hop aroma. Pale bready malt sweetness. Some peach, white grape, mango. It's all a bit mild, though, and really could be juicier. Surprisingly little lager yeastiness. Taste is similar. Some lemon, peach, grass, pine. Again, fairly mild. Moderate bitterness. Very clean. Some pale malt sweetness, doughy sugars. Little bit of solvent bitterness in the finish. Light and crisp, particularly for the abv. Pretty good beer.
