12oz bottle from Beer Baron (Detroit, MI). 5.29. 2011 vintage. Served in a Founders snifter.
Pours a murky deep dark orangey yellow with about a half finger pale cream head. Head recedes quickly but leaves a few scattered spots of lacing.
Interesting nose. Bold sour bitter grapefruit citrus, candy sugar, sweet bread, herbal and floral hops with a hint of booze.
Bitter grapefruit hops jump out front in the flavors. A nice little blend of the citrus and herbal hops, dough, sugar, pine and currants. Thr alcohol peeps through occasionally but is well hidden for the most part.
Medium full feel with a good amount of carbonation. Nice & oily sticky slick. An alcohol cooling effect adds to the long bitter hoppy aftertaste.
While it isn't my favorite imperial IPA by any means, this is a solid offering. As a 2011 vintage I'm sure the hops have faded but I could still detect a good deal. I may not buy a 4 pack but I'll definately try this again if I'm ever someplace that has it fresh on tap.

2014 edition. Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Tree House tulip.

s: Mild citrus and pine.
t: Moderate bready malt and pine followed by some bitterness on the tongue.
m: Medium, good body, lots of carbonation tingle.
o: A powerful and tasty IIPA, very good sipper.
Serving type: growler
