look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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.
