Pours a gorgeous cloudy amber with a half finger of white head that sticks around for a while. The nose is huge on orange, but also includes lemon peel, tangerine, pineapple, and sweet malts. I get a pine needle taste up front before the bitterness is reduced by sweet orange, papaya, and pineapple, and then washed away completely by bready malts, leading to an impressively balanced and coherent experience from the beginning of the tongue to the end. Drinks smooth with a medium body, and hides the alcohol content well.

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.
