Appearance-Amber with eggshell foam out of a 16 ounce can.

Smell-Grass, Strawberries, Raspberries, Bitters.

Taste-Follows the nose with a light cream on the end palate. Sort of like a strawberry creamsicle.

Mouthfeel-Nice weight for an IPA. Heavy but not overwhelming. Finish is a good length.

Overall-I wasn't expecting much but I think this is my favorite I've had from Golden Road. I love the shift to a light mouthfeel on the finish. Nicely done.

Christmas Day and a Better Weather IPA.

Pleasantly surprised on this one, my peeps. A decent amount of juice, the bitterness was ripe like a guava picked from the equater... Hell, Raul is diggin' this like the government is digging into your pension!

I wouldn't exactly say that I am "feelin" in, but I'm into it well enough.

On-tap at Rock & Brews, El Segundo, CA

A: The beer is slightly hazy light amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down and left a bit of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops—oranges seem to stand out in particular—are present in the nose along with notes of pine resin hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but the pine resin hops seem to stand out a little more in front of the citrusy hops. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked the contrasting citrusy and piney hops in the beer as the smell and taste seemed like mirror images of each other.

Sixteen ounce can dated 10-26-13.

A: Pours a clear orange with a solid 1.5-inch slightly off-white head which fades to a thin cap and yields spots and splotches of lace.

N: Citrus (mainly grapefruit) dominates here. Floral with some herbal and caramel malty notes.

T: Citrusy with some sweet caramel malts. Perhaps I should have checked the can date more closely.

M: Medium body and semi-full carbonation. Mildly bitter and dry finish. ABV is noted but fairly well hidden.

O: A good and balanced Impy IPA.
