Draft into a pint glass
A: Soft light brown with a reddish hue. Very murky, almost muddy. Not unlike a lake in a Stephen King movie. Fairly thin, bubbly, burnt sienna head.
S: Strong sweet floral hops. A rich but fairly generic IPA aroma.
T: More complex than the nose leads on. Bitter hops hit first and then again on the back, but in the middle, there is a very distinct sweetness that holds it all together. You can taste the alcohol, but not as much as you might. Good, but nothing truly spectacular.
MF: Nice carbonation brings out the bitter hops. Decent body, but not too clingy. Heavy, but goes down easily enough.
D: Good drinking IPA. Not too heavy, nice flavor, but nothing to write home about. Personally, I prefer Weyerbacher’s Hops Infusion.
Serving type: on-tap

Bought an assortment case in Northeastern PA. Have had the Old Heathen and a couple other brews from Weyerbacher before, but their example of an Imperial IPA is incredible. The malt balances with the Hops to create one of the more drinkable IPA's I've had (particularly considering it's a daunting 9% ABV). Not overwhelmingly carbonated, a great choice for a summer beer!
