4.11/5 rDev +8.2%
Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Surly tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid three fingers of off white head which recede into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A big sharp and in your face hop aroma with lots of pine, grass, and citrus esters. Strong hop presence upfront with earthy, herbal, and floral hints. Hints of grass and a dank scent of pine resin. Citrus fruit hints of orange peel, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, and lemon. Bready malt background hints of sweet caramel, biscuit, grains, cracker, and yeast. Fairly oily smelling. Nice aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a ripe, oily, and bitter hop driven taste with lots of earthy, piney, and citrus notes. Big earthy hop taste upfront with grass and floral notes. Spicy and dank taste of pine resin. Citrus fruit taste with notes of orange peel, pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon zest. Sweet bready malt presence in the background with notes of caramel, grains, biscuit, yeast, and crackers. Fairly bitter and oily tasting. Good.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Bitter, chewy, and fairly oily. Alcohol heat is hidden well. Finishes dry.
Overall: A pretty decent imperial IPA. Big on the earthy and piney hops. Straightforward but good.

Another beer courtesy of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of citrus, some hops. Taste is also mild citrus, a well balanced hops and malts flavor, just a bit of alcohol, very easy drinking considering the abv. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall I enjoyed this beer, but if you are looking for a hop bomb, you may be disappointed.

porued 16oz can into Duvel tulip.
A - Nice deep orange copper color with 2 finger white head. There was a large slimy mucus glob that fell out of the can. Skimmed it out and will drink cautiously. I'll give it an outstanding rating if I don't include the glob.
S - Earthy dank hops with some tropical scents. Maybe some garlic and onion. Sweet malt and honey.
T - Kinda dank and bitter hop profile. Hints of garlic and onion, with some tropical notes. Sweetness of malt and honey in the middle. Bitter and alcohol burn at the end.
M - Medium bodied, dank and sticky. Good carbonation.
O - This was a bit rough and the big mucus glob didn't help with drinking this beer. I drank some and poured the rest out.
