Aptly named, this stuff will take your head off. Very strong beer with lots of hop and malt - a kind of over-the-top use of ingredients for effect - a very good effect. Had this the first time on tap, in bottle since, both are excellent. Alcohol is definitely in the flavor profile, but not a deal killer. I am not a partier, so this is a one-bottle brew (22 oz) for me.

3.39/5  rDev -13.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Orange and strawberry in color. A sticky white head with nice lacing. Nice retention, too.

Nose: Not much is strong or up front. Mostly pine and citrus. A tiny bit of malt.

Taste: Sweet and bitter. Hoppy and syrupy.

Notes: Beer is now expensive, and your options are seemingly limitless. If you are going to brew an imperial IPA, it needs to be unique or incredible. This would have been a really nice IPA, but they tried to sell me on the "imperial" aspect and so I was let down.
