A: Clear amber hue with a big fluffy fizzy 3 finger head. The head is off white/tan color. Lots of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass keeping the head large. Leaves thick fluffy lacing along the sides of the glass.
S: Good pine resin hops with slight hints of oats mixed in there.
T: Sweet mango hoppy flavors up front the blend into a honey granola flavor. Tastes like my wife's homemade granola. Sweet finish with a nice honey/oat flavor and slight citrus sweetness in there as well. The alcohol is not noticeable at all which is impressive for a 9% beer. The hops are not over powering or too bitter. Nice sweet balance with this brew.
M: Thin to medium mouthfeel for this beer. Seemed like it would be a lot creamier after the large head that formed on the pour. The carbonation is adequate for this style.
O: I think DFH did an excellent job mixing granola with an imperial pale ale. The granola flavor really stands out and helps to leave a nice sweet finish on the palate. I like the fact that you can taste the granola and the hops of the pale ale. Very well done, I will need to pick up a few more of these.
