I've been wanting this brew for some time and found it in Cleveland. Boy this beer is excellent. Poured a clear amber hue with a 2 inch beige head that left a excellent amount of sticky lace on the glass. My lips were also smacking with a sticky and salty residue. Upon pouring, a blast of pine and grapefruit (chinook and cascade hops)hit my nose with a yeasty dough scent. Great caramel flavor beginning with a long grapefruit bitter aftertaste. Smooth, crisp with a medium body, soft cabonation somewhat syrupy and dry ending with a hint of alcohol made it perfect for a session. Overall, I could drink this brew all night. The aroma, taste, appearance and mouthfeel was a near perfect harmony. The bad thing is, I can not found it anywhere near me. Enjoy

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.
