bomber shared with my girlfriend.
a - pours a translucent amber color with a rocky finger of light yellow head. after calming, i get a thin film that leaves thick rings of lace in the glass.
s - grassy sweet malt, fresh baked bread, notes of honey, citrus, cherry.
t - wow. so much going on here. starts off sweet, almost carmelly, then moves into massive hop character. notes of orange, grapefruit, berry, honey and pine all crop up before fading into a lightly bitter finish. barely any trace of the alcohol content.
m - firmly medium with lighter carbonation. exceptionally smooth.
o - honestly i was pretty blown away. it certainly is appropriately titled. this beer just vaulted into my top 3 favorites for the style (rounded out by dfh 90 and hopslam). worth seeking out.

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.
