Split a bottle of this on this night (or, last night) with beer buddy Phil.
Pours a dark red/brown, decent head. Below average lacing.
Malty nose, some bitterness. No real hop presence.
Sweet, malty palate. Where are the hops? Imperial IPA my ass. Bottled in late July.. something seems wrong.
Solid mouthfeel. All the mouthfeel if a DIPA without the hops..
Perhaps the beer was store or transported improperly, but not at all impressed. Won't be seeking this out again unless I know it's extremely fresh.

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 5/14/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, oak, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, floral, grass, light pine, oak, light vanilla, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, floral, grass, light pine, oak, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a smooth, creamy, and lightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent oak aged DIPA. All around great complexity and balance of citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
