This brew poured with a full finger of pure white head that left a nice amount of lacing on the glass. The body is orange with a lot of carbonation. It also looks like there is some “stuff” floating in this. Interesting. On the nose, I get a lot of pine and grapefruit and a hint of sweetness on the end. On the taste, the first thing that I get is pine, then grapefruit and then another taste that I can’t really identify. I think it’s caramel or some nuttiness? This nuttiness hangs around until the finish and lingers for a while. The alcohol in this brew is significant, but it is insanely well hidden. This is a very enjoyable IPA. This brew was 102 IBUs, but doesn’t hit you in the face with hops. This would be up there are one of the best Imperial IPAs that I’ve had. Go out and get this if you haven’t tried it.

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.
