12oz can poured into an Imperial Pint.
A - Huge rocky off-white head. Sticky and refuses to fall. Golden with an orange hue. Bit of haze to it. Tremendous lacing to the glass.
S - Big and fresh citrus all over the place. Strong, wet and dank. Toasty malt, light caramel.
T - Pronounced malt flavor holds the majority of the beer. Comes across syrupy with layers of toasty breadiness. The malt is sweet almost the whole way. There's a rich caramel complexity that finally gives way to its pine hops late in the second half of the flavor. Slightly rounds out with some bitterness and warming alcohol that lasts into the finish.
M - Barely shy of full bodied, medium-light carbonation, semi-sweet.
O - The look to this beer was fantastic. Smells great. Malt has quite a strong grip on the flavor that doesn't lend itself well to the hops. It's a little too sweet and viscous lacking the stylistic backbone of an IPA. I've not had this beer since it was "Gordon's", but this beer will always bring back memories.

Pour is golden with white head. Sticky and lingering lace.
Lemon zest with grapefruit and pine in the nose.
Spivey punch in the initial sip. Both from the hops and malts. I love the blend of rye and dark Munich. This really adds to the complexity of the hop bill. Easy drinking with medium mouthfeel and a sharp bite from carbonation.
Some more pine and grapefruit in the aftertaste with a dry enough finish.
Overall a solid imperial IPA. Doesn't blow you away but very solid throughout.
