Pours a clear, copper color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong pine, piney hops, sweet malt, hint of floral, and alcohol. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, pine, piney hops, slight citrus hops, alcohol, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, decent appearance, average aroma, body, and blend. The body is hop forward obviously, but beside the hops the rest of the body is underwhelming.

Nice head here, robust and looking real good in my glass. Full head settles into a nice foam topping on top of the glass. Color is dark orange golden and the beer has good clarity.

On the nose, the hops are very pronounced along with underlying citrus notes, particularly pink grapefruit. Also getting yeasty challah bread notes in the aroma mix.

On the palate, I am hit first with that pink grapefruit. Just like the peel remnants on a grapefruit weave in bitterness on that fruit, in the glass the hops provide a similar sensation as the fruitiness subsides.

On the finish, the hop bitterness has lots of staying power.

Mouthfeel has probably the right touch of carbonation, though I could do with just a wee bit less. Substantive, approaching chewiness / syrup like texture - ok that is an exaggeration, but just sayin this is not a thin one.

Alcohol level given the Imperial styling goes north a bit, which suits me just fine. An enjoyable brew - and now remembering the great time had at Alaskan Brewery last summer - a definite beer lover's stop if ever in Juneau.
