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

12oz bottle received as an extra from generous BA trader, Ckoz.
Slightly hazy, saffron colored elixir poured into SA glass. Huge two finger, white fluffy head, retained throughout the tasting. Thick lacing coats the glass.
Wonderful aromas of citrus (lemons, tangerines), rind, earthy hops and spice.
Nice amalgam of the smooth bitterness with intermingling notes of earth and spice with the citrus making an appearance at the end for a nice tangy aftertaste. Well done.
Medium body, alcohol well hidden.
Really impressed with this IPL, in fact the best one I have tasted. This would be a go to brew if available in OH. Nice job by Jack's Abby.
