I have been waiting to try this beer...and worth the wait it was! Local restaurant has this on tap here in teh 'burbs of Chicago is awesome! The beer is slightly cloudy golden with thin head. The aroma was a powerful citrus and pine...everything one would want from an Imperial IPA. The citrus/pine help to balance the 10% ABV....a few of these and one will be slammed!!!! The high alcohol and powerful flavor makes this a tough session beer! Morning after would probably be like having a car deoderizer in your mounth. Stay thirsty my friends!

Not uber fresh, bottled January. ChurchKey in DC. From notes.
A - Poured hazy dark golden with a thick off white head of two fingers. Great lace rings and a half finger retention.
S - Pungent hops, honey, dank, melon, pine. Quite nice.
T - Woah. Big pineapple core, pine, lot's of citrus, honey, bread, gripping with lot's of resin. Excellent stuff. A bit floral and some boozy, syrupy fruits come out later.
M - Good carbonation, full body, nice honey and bitterness to finish with some booze.
O/D - This is legit. Lives up to the hype for sure. So flavourful, complex, and lovely to sip. Not as easy drinking as Heady Topper, but they're different styles of DIPA. Lovely in it's own right.
