from a large bottle (what is that 20 ounces??) - poored into a National Mechanics Bill Cosby glass (I didn't steal the glass, a bartender gave it to me... wrapped it in paper too)
Gave Cosby a reddish gold look.... with a thick off-white head. I was celebrating Chinese New Year while drinking this and the bubbles were happy to meander to the top and show me there presence. Happy Chinese New Year!
Yes! Aroma was excellent. Hops. Grapefruit... floral... like a wet, lush morning stroll through the jungle crunching plants beneath your boots...
Taste - Boom! it's a slap in the face with bitterness... thinking at first maybe too much. Hmm... another sip.
Mouthfeel sits well... but kind of soapy...
Drinkability - is average... with 11% alcohol it is kind of impressive.. .but I think 1 (maybe) 2 is enough.

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.
