Red-amber with perfect lacing.
Pine hops on nose. Can discern a sweet maltiness. It tends toward the sickly-sweet aroma that I associate with Goose Island Demolition.
Pine then roasted malt. Bitter on the backend. Very hard-core hops now. Keeps evolving. Lots of pine hops on this one.
This brew coats the mouth quite nicely.
The high abv and the intense hops makes it hard to drink a lot of this beer.
The interesting things is - the sweet nose doesn't come through on the palate. The palate is nicely balanced between the malts and piney hops that it's really enjoyable!
Serving type: on-tap

Poured undated 12 oz bottle into pint glass. This is excellent beer. It brings to mind "Pliney the Elder". The flavor profile is very similar. Pours a clear golden-yellow with a tinge of orange, with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Not a huge aroma, but its clean, floral and slightly dank, with some pineapple and peach. The taste is wonderful and just gets better the more you drink it. It's somewhat fruity and buttery with a perfect balance of sweet maltiness and huge hops but low bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and smooth with low carbonation, but still refreshing with well concealed alchohol. Overall, I'd say this is world class...a really great Imperial IPA.
