3.35/5 rDev -18.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Appearance: Golden yellow with one finger of head that fades slowly to a thin cap with a curtain of lace.
Aroma: A piney, hoppy bouquet with hints of melon, grapefruit and toffy.
Taste: A strong malt backbone from start to finish with a creamy body, topped by some potent bitterness that really get going towards the middle and ends up fairly harsh by the finish, which is lingering and a bit unpleasant. After a few sips the aroma gets a bit katty.
The Rest: A decent beer lacking a bit in the balance department. There's a great, malty base in there that unfortunate gets overwhelmed by some over the top bitterness. I realize that this is an imperial, but the bitterness is just a bit to ragged and harsh for me to really enjoy this beer.
Serving type: bottle
