---from bottle to stemmed tulip glass---
*this beer was bottles 23 days ago, fresh as can be*
Honey gold (fitting, right?) one finger of off white head that shrinks down to a constant cap on this beer. Perfect lacing til the last sip.
Dank earthyness, hints of citrus and honey.
Super bitter up front - gives way to funky/earthy hops and malty backbone. Lots of honey aftertaste...
Medium body, super sticky, the honey is a much appreciated addition to this earthy double IPA. Slight alcohol warming sensation after each sip.
I dig! Not your average double IPA. This steers clear of the citrus bombs that reign supreme in the Double IPA world and delivers an earthy, sweet, bitter IPA that will rock your socks off. Have 4 of theses and call me in the morning. Alcohol tries to peek through, and does on occasion, but is drowned by the thick honey sweetness.

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.
