Appearance: This beer poured a dark honeycomb color with an off-white head that rose up about 2 and 1/2 inches high. The head maintained its height leaveing behind a thick wall of bubbles. No beading in this one.
Smell: Has a strong hop aroma, not so much pines but more of a grassy pungent hay and cactus alovera. Sharp. A mild maltiness and just a hint of alcohol can be found.
Taste: The flavors are sweet fruits,masked by a strong hop bitterness. This has a unique hop palate to me, very interesting and distant as well. Perhaps some honey hints in there.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high carbonation. As I poured this beer,the head grew up rather quickly it it began to overflow. I quickly grab my mug and begin to sip to calm the storm. Where am I going with this? Well, when I finally settled the beer down to a good level I realized how sticky this beer was. Sheesh I almost need a shower now.
Drinkability: I must say I am impressed with this double. I would even go as far as to say this is my new favorite double IPA! This beer had me wondering about flavors the whole time. This is a must try, two thumbs up Weyerbacher!!

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!
