Received in a recent trade and I'm stoked to be able to finally try this beer...
I drank 3 of these from the can and poured one into a glass... Very hazy and full of yeast particles, this definitely isn't the most attractive brew... Now I know why they want you to drink it from the can...
Probably the highlight of the beer... Very pungent citrus hop aromas... Pineapple, orange, lemon... the aromas coming out of the can are ridiculous... They are deep and juicy and dank... Crazy aromas... Not much in the way of maltiness in the background but that's ok to me...
Hop flavors are citrusy in nature with the pineapple and orange holding the forefront... The flavors are good but don't really hold up in measure to the pungency of the aromas... I don't detect any booze whatsoever so that's a good thing... This is a good Imperial for sure... It's not overly boozy as some are and the bitterness is held in check quite nicely..
I liked this beer a lot and would buy it if available locally... Would I trade for it again? I'm not so sure about that... It was good but just not world class level... at least to me...
