Served in a snifter glass, one day after filled in a growler.
Appearance: A classic amber color, notch of semi cloudiness flowing the the body. Head is thick depending on your pour which for me was about a finger's length at the minimum coming off-white with an orange tint to it.
Smell:Smells good, you feel hops all over your nose but I wish it was just a little more potent.
Taste: This beer has hit my top five Imperial IPA's just on taste alone, the caramel notes with and offset bitterness is a mixture that is well put together.
Mouth: Slightly sticky, but i want more, with a taste like this I was expecting more that just medium carbonation.
Overall: Really good beer, has pretty much everything you could ask for. I have a few other Imperial IPAs that I have in mind that are a few steps ahead but this one will go down as a classic. Salud!
Serving type: growler

Went up to Bear Republic a couple of weeks ago to try this on tap. I was bummed because they were out of it. So I ran across it at BevMo they other day while stocking up on beer. I can not write/describe beer as eloquently as others here. So I'll just say this beer is really really good if you like Northern California/PNW style IPA's.
