Notes/Commercial Description:
This Hop Monster uses multiple kettle hop additions with the technique of doubling the hop amount each addition (exponentially). Add in the hop back and the continuous dry hopping and your starting to get the picture. The beer is finished off with a "body-bag" sized hop-bag full of hop cones and oak chips. There it ages and mellows, disguising the alcohol content for a double strong, incredibly hoppy, yet drinkable beer.

Reviewed from a 4oz taster glass. Had a whole bottle a week ago. It's bringin back memories.

Pours a very clear amber clolor. Nice fluffy head. Very nice lacing.

Smells amazing. Lots of citrious and fruity hops. Smells of pineapple and peach. Some pine hops as well.

Tastes just as it smells with the hop fruits in the background and a nice strong hoppyness that is balanced well with the sweetness. The sweetness of the malt is well balanced with the dryness of the booze.

Mouthfeel is awesome. The frothness of the head that most good IPAs have is wonderful. Nice light carb.

Overall an awesome beer that I hope to have many more times.

Poured straight from the bottle the night of the release.

Pours a beautiful golden yellow with a very light head.

Smell - Very clean smell. Tons of sweetness, honey, some pineapple and a very pleasant hop smell. I get no sense this beer will have any bitterness. By no means does this beer smell like an 11% beer.

Taste - My nose was very correct. this beer is ran by a sweet honey taste followed by a nice hop character that doesn't give off any hop bitterness. No alcohol present at all in this beer. Very smooth and easy to drink. Way too enjoyable for a 11% brew.

Overall - Pliny the Younger has all the hype, but haven had both I can honestly say I think this one takes the cake as the BEST IMPERIAL IPA.
