3.68/5 rDev -9.8%

A- 4 Golden color with a slight orange tint. Pretty transparent. Smooth, creamy looking off-white head. Smooth lacing as well, fairly sticky.
S- 4 Malt heavy with a caramel like backdrop, but with a definite citrus and hop presence. The fruity smell is reminiscent of both grapefruit and apricot.
T- 3.5 The malt makes its presence felt even further with the taste of this brew, and I'm left wishing for more of a hop bite to cut into it. I again get some caramel here, and it is pretty sweet overall.
M- 4 A bit on the creamy side for the style, but medium in body and not all that heavy. Smooth.
D- 3.5 I'm slightly disappointed with this ST offering; the 2XIPA is great, and so I had my hopes up. That said, it isn't bad by any means. It's just not what I was looking for in the style being so sweet and malt heavy. That said, it is still a quality brew and worth a shot. I'd probably just want one of the bombers in a sitting.

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.
