Twenty-two ounce bottle shared by Sasha - thanks. Batch 467/468.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a half-inch thick white head which fades to a thin cap and rim leaving spots of lace.

N: Juicy grapefruit, tangerine, orange, pineapple, fruity and floral.

T: Dank and herbal with some pine and solid malt backing.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Resiny and sticky finish.

O: Strong Imp IPA and very hoppy. Well done.

Opened a bomber purchased from Bottles & Cans in Chicago, batch #467/468, and poured into a tulip.

A - Pours a hazy copper/orange color with 2 fingers of dense off-white head. The thick foam lingers around for a while. After sipping, the head falls leaving a nice ring behind.

S - Dank with tropical fruits. Pineapple, grass and pine assault my nose in the best way possible. The smell makes the corners of my mouth water, very inviting.

T/M - The beginning of the sip is sweet, but then immediately followed with the hop bitterness. The rich, malty backbone stands no chance against the massive hop profile. I love the great fruity hop aftertaste that's left behind after I swallow. Medium/slick mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation.

O - This is everything I look for in an IIPA. Bold, dank, hop-forward, great hop aftertaste. If you're a hop headline myself, you need to try this brew. Definitely well worth it to give it a try, I know I will be seeking this one again.
