No freshness date.
Appearance is a redish orange, medium white head. No rising bubbles. Good head retention.
Smell is of VERY strong bitter hop resins, kind of citrusy.
Taste is super heavy! The hops wrek the weigh the tongue down and completely destroy the palate. I have had this beer a few times now and it never fails to kick my ass! Very strong alcohol presence. Super bitter hop resins attack the palate de-arming its defenses and leaving it completely vulnerable to attack. Medium consistency. Medium carbonation. I can honestly say, maybe to many hops were used for this concoction, or not enough balance of other ingredients. This is a good example of extreme beer at its most extreme.
Drink this beer slowly. Sip on it. It will fuck you up if you don't take it seriously, trust me, I know from experience.

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.
