look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

This ale pours a deep copper color with a thick off white head which leads to a thin cream lacing throughout the pour. The aromas are sweet and malty; not what I'd expect from an imperial ipa. There are notes of hops but they are subtle. Lots of caramel and a little vanilla on the nose. The flavor is deep and rich, with hops up front followed by a sweet malty taste. Alot of oak and vanilla on the finish. The taste is rich and satisfying but subtle for an ipa. This is a pretty awesome beer just hard to view as an imperial ipa due to its sweetness and lack of hops. Not what I expected but damn good none the less. Can't wait to try the unaged version of this one.
