4.35/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance is a clearly transparent copper body with tinges of amber, head is white pillowy foam that mostly sustains, big thick lacing on the glass
Smell is dominated by floral and citrus hops (cascade?), but there is a surprising presence of caramel malts and honeyed sweetness as well as moderate alcohol
Taste is a mix of those sweet juicy hops and considerable caramel and bread malts as well as a moderate alcohol presence, the citrus sticks out midway with some honey sweetness and finishes oily and sweet
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, smooth texture finishes oily and slick, moderate carbonation
Drinkability is moderate, this is one hefty but sweet and balanced east coast DIPA, the 11% abv hampers the drinkability, but I completely enjoyed all 22oz in one sitting, I was blown away by Choklat in NYC and Unearthly does not disappoint, I am looking forward to sampling more of these big beers from Southern Tier!

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.
