look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - Pours a clear, light, straw color that builds a really pleasant 2-finger, creamy head. Sticks around forever too, considering the ABV of this IPA. Minimal lacing to say the least. Can see a steady stream of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass.

S - Actually smells fairly mild for an Imperial IPA. The nose is mostly piney hops, but not much citrus or grapefruit. Not much of a wallop on the bouquet but at least it seems balanced. Floral notes dance around the hops but are clearly crowded away from the dance.

T - I take my first sip and... bam. There's the wallop. Very bitter hop-forwardness with not much citrus to back-up the calvary. Unfortunately this one seems a bit one-sided towards bitterness, which I thought due to the mild nose might be a bit more complex, but not this time. Upon further drinking and warming up, the citrus does make an appearance, but it is a minor role and is quickly drowned out by more hops.

M - Feels medium- to heavied- bodied. Definitely is no weak foe to crush. Strong carbonation which tingles the tongue and helps activate the taste buds. Enjoyable to drink.

D - The drinkability really takes a hit due to this beers bitter-forward taste. Would be hard to pound a few of these within the course of a night. A bit disappointed with this beer from a solid brewery.
