Had to review after seeing what I thought was not an accurate first review. Problem is I am having a spicy BBQ dinner during the review. This is a big bold and alcoholly tasting double but has a smooth character. Boozy smell, hits the mouth big and boozy witha big hop bite, but taste is more malt than hops. Gotta be ready for this one but not bad i think could be put together a tad better.

This Imperial IPA pours to a brief-lived, medium creamy ivory-colored head on a slightly hazy, effervescent pale-amber body; lacing is good, consisting of sticky slabs and caverns. The nose is medium in intensity: pineapple backed by orange and sweet florals that hint of cotton candy and fennel seed; significant alcohol overtones ride atop it all. Up front, the palate is sweetish grassy pineapple and bready malt, with hints of perfumey florals; midpalate, an assertive bittersweet nuttiness emerges, as does a light rind-like citrusy bitterness that partially balances the sweetness. The bready malt foundation, apparent from the start, plays a progressively larger role from mid-palate on; this beer is definitely on the malty end of the spectrum for the style. The finish is quite nutty/bittersweet and boozy, followed by the onset of a light-for-the-style grassy/pineapple bitterness that lingers for a few minutes. Retrogustative olfaction is moderately grassy. Mouthfeel is on point for the medium body, and the texture is slightly creamy, moderately astringent, and slightly peppery from the restrained carbonation. (growler)

A: Pours a clear orangish copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass rather slowly and a hint of garnet red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dense foamy beige head that reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium to thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith, tropical/pineapple, and pine hops with a lighter amount of sweet caramel malts.

T: Upfront the beer is rather sweet with moderate to strong flavors of caramel malts with some light honey and toffee sweetness. There are moderate to strong flavors of hops - I detect some citrus/grapefruit pith, tropical/pineapple, and pine/resin. There are moderate notes of alcohol towards the finish. Moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which lingers for a moderate amount of time.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Sticky with a light amount of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: This beer needs to do a better job of hiding the alcohol - it is far to in your face and astringent and takes away from the hops and malts. There is lot of sweetness and a lot of bitterness in this beer but somehow it does not quite seem to be in balance. Not sure I will be grabbing anymore of these.
