On-Tap at Liberty Tavern in Arlington, VA and served in a tulip glass.
Pours bright golden orange with even brighter white head that fills a full two fingers. Lace remains throughout the drink. Nose is the only thing not bold in this beer - some light fruitiness (apricot?), and a deep grassy/hoppyness.
Taste is excessively earthy, quintessential hops, with some nice fruit tones and a lot of pine. Quite a bit of balance for a beer this bold, great overall drink. Medium body with an oily texture. Overall a great beer that definitely doesn't disappoint.

4.81/5 rDev +7.1%

12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a dark honeyburst color with a medium sized white head that has great retention and lots of lacing.
Smell is of floral hops, honey, hints of citrus, and a sweet toffee .
Taste is sweet up front with honey and a bite of grapefruit, combined it is nice. As if moves through the palate, the alcohol shows up and reminds you this is 10% and finishes with punchy hops. Mouthfeel is a bit on the oily side, smooth, fairly heavy and even has some creaminess to it.
Overall, an awesome Imperial IPA that you have to make sure and get each Winter before it's sold out.
