3.98/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance 4.0: Beautiful, opaque golden color. Nice 1/2" head. Excellent lacing.

Smell 3.75: Nice bouquet, but not as hop-forward as one might expect. Also, there is a very pleasant butterscotch/ caramel scent in here that is beguiling.

Taste 4.00: Front is sweet and has a very slight alkaline hint. Middle is big but balanced and this is where a wave of hop-madness assaults the taste-buds. Citrus, pine, bitter, alkaline, chlorophyll...just about any hop taste you can think of. Also a big hit of sweet malt at this taste level. Finish is smooth and the tastes from the middle quickly fade away here into a short and refreshing aftertaste that is (of course) hop-focused.

Mouthfeel 4.25: Mouthfeel is actually one of the best parts of this beer and does an excellent job rounding out the various (and varied) hop assaults.

Overall 4.00: Very good Imperial IPA that is as big as you would think and also features an excellent balance of malt and hop. Not the best IPA on the planet, but it is certainly worthy of the appellation "outstanding." Be aware: this is an over-the-top beer alcohol wise, so cancel your helicopter flying school field test if you try to down one of these at lunch. Nonetheless, hop-heads should check this one out of they can find it.
