3.73/5 rDev -8.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Pours a copper-orange color. A vigorous pour produced several fingers of foamy white head that eventually dissipated to about two fingers. Lots of sticky lacing.
S: Distinct aromas sweet citrus and resiny pine. Very strong notes of alcohol, very sweet caramel, grass, and grapefruit.
T: Very very sweet. Caramel is one of the most dominant flavors in the taste. Slight note of citrus and piney resin come through in the finish. Surprisingly little bitterness for a DIPA. It could use some too - this brew's maltiness boarders on cloying.
M: Full bodied, thick, syrupy, hoppy oil. Feel the alcohol warmth as it goes down.
O: A fairly good IPA, but nothing to get too excited about. I would recommend this to someone that cannot handle really bitter beers, but the lack of hop bitterness in this brew let to a beer that boarded on sickly sweet IMHO. Fair, but not great.

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.
