Sampled from a 22oz 2005 sample. Beer pours a somewhat cloudy honey orange color with a white head that can explode on you if you don't watch how your pour. Citrus, flowers, and pine all attainable from a big whiff of this one. I'm a big fan of this one, wish this was available in my area and six packs would be a huge plus as I would love one of these on a warm summer day.

Picked this up a few weeks back at the Whole Foods on Houston St. in New York City. The reviews for this were great and although I've had a zillion beers of this style, there's something about a good Imperial/Double IPA that I can't resist. That was the case here as the balance, recessed alcohol, and wonderful mouthfeel all combined to make this extremely enjoyable and about as easygoing as a beer of this style could be, while still packing enough of a punch to remind me that this was indeed an IPA!
