This is a golden amber in low light. The nose has a golden ruby red kiss of grapefruit. There’s sweet citrus aromas as well as some hints of cherries around the edges. Not hoppy so much as fruity—very pronounced fresh fruit flavors come across more than any citrus or pine hops (although there is a little piney chew to give it another layer). I get the cherries, as well as some berry notes, and it has a sweet finish. For an imperial IPA it was a complete surprise. Dessert-PA, anyone?

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.
