Here goes nothing, as I'm sure everyone has already got enough info on this brew -
A - Cloudy Amber. A modest head that remains partially in tack throughout what turns out to be a quickly consumed brew. Perfect lacing
S - Orange Creamsicle, earthy tones.
T - Just as rumored... flavors of caramel honey, floral hops, citrus finish. Everything in blasts. The only thing subtle is the hint of alcohol once the lengthy burst of flavors subsides.
M - Lightly carbonated to perfection, it's light in appearance, heavy in feel.
Hard beer to sip, as each taste leaves you wanting another. At 10% ABV, dangerously delicious.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
