4.03/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle, 9/25/13, poured into a snifter

A- A clear copper color with a three finger white head.

S- Nice balance between malts and hop, pale malts and citrus hops, smells like a nice pale ale.

T- Hoppier than the nose, getting both citrus and piney hops, nice malt backbone, pale malts and granola, nice balance.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- Alcohol is well hidden and I feel this is truly an Imperial Pale Ale like the bottle says. Very enjoyable, I will pick this up again.

Bought a case when this dropped thanks to a cousin who lives close to the Dogfish head headquarters. I am not as sophisticated as so many others on this site who can review a beer with such detail and eloquence, but I will say this:

This beer is excellent, it is strong, but not too strong. It has a very pleasant aroma and despite its high alcohol content, it finishes very smooth. The granola, which was the ingredient voted in by deadheads, really adds a nice note to the end.
