Pours a clear golden color with a big white head.
Smells of piney hops and some fruit/tropical fruit...hops lead the way of course.
Tastes of grapefruit, pineapple, some earthy/pine. Malty sweetness/bread flavor presents itself in the finish and compliments the hops.
This is a full-bodied beer, smooth on the palate, some lingering bitterness that is well balanced by the malt.
One of the best DIPAs I've had, along with Pliny and Myrcenary. It has a great fruity-hop taste with a complex malt body. Not quite chewy but substantial.
Note: Get this beer fresh. I grabbed a bottle from the brewery and also had one from a bottle shop...the difference was noticeable.

Tipple's Brews - Gainesville - Release #18, 2014 - 1 pint, 6 oz. Bottle
A - pours a nice orange with two fingers of white bubble head that somewhat quickly dissipated. Carb levels coming up are standard. Nice clarity.
S - Nice citrus notes on nose, has nice earthy qualities to it. Hop presence is forward here. Mildly boozy here.
T - Start is nice and warming. Has a boozy quality there (expected for 10+%). Extremely smooth for being an Imperial. Has a very balance hop and malt profile. The end you get that booziness for sure, but between it is a nice caramel, sweet taste.
M - Medium bodied, quite drinkable. Carbonation is perfect. Smooth, very smooth, no real bite to speak of like you get w/ alot of Imperials.
O - Worth a try. Very nice qualities to it. At the price point, it may not be all that, but for what it is it does not dissapoint.
