Excited about this bottle that I received via trade.
A-Looking pretty good, golden beer with a decent white head that dissipated quickly.
S-Citrus and tropical fruit flavors, slight pine smell, sweet caramel malt
T-Very malt and fruit forward DIPA, some bread caramel flavors, slightly grain flavor, hop flavor not as prevelant at first but hit on the way back, citrus grapefruit presence there but has a backseat, alcohol flavors seem to sharpen the flavors rather than compliment them, Overly sweet, too much alcohol, and would have preferred more upfront hops
M-Good but not great, slightly grainy feel and alcohol flavor detracted, good carbonation tickle
D-Not a big fan of this one and didn't make it through the whole bottle. I find too much alcohol sweetness in Southern Tier beers that don't compliment the flavors underneath which are usually very good.

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.
