4.85/5 rDev +8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Pours a slightly amber or more dark golden color with a nice head that is thin and creamy and left nice lacing.
Aroma is a little sweet and fruity with some green. Citrus fruit and maybe some tropical fruit notes too.
Taste is just excellent. A great balance of fruit (mostly citrus) with green and pine notes. Not one thing takes over. The taste is consistent from beginning to end. Slight malt background with a pine finish. Mouth feel is very smooth and finishes a bit dry.
Overall and excellent IPA. Very well balanced and surprisingly easy drinking. No alcohol taste even though it carries some wight. Just great.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
