22 oz bomber poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Hazy dark orange color with a fluffy head. The lacing forms sticky rings around the glass as it goes down. Below-average carbonation.
Smell: There are hop, brown-sugar, and rose petal notes in the nose. Grapefruit is present along with other citrus and floral scents.
Taste: Balanced grapefruit-like citrus and honeyed malts. Hoppy, but not overpowering. I would not guess that this beer is 11% ABV. On the sweeter side compared to the majority of its style. Excellent hop profile. This beer is surprising well balanced as there is a solid brown-sugar-malty backbone present.
Mouthfeel: I was a little surprised to find that this beer is essentially full bodied. There is also very little carbonation. Nice mouth-coating. Smooth.
Ending notes: What a great beer! A nice sipper. I would easily recommend this to any hop head. Very enjoyable.

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.
