4.2/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Bottled on 5/30/14. Tasted on 7/28/14
Appearance: Half-inch soapy head, nearly pure-white. The color is a transparent, golden-copper. Lacing initially holds a very nice level of retention, but fades fairly quickly. Still have some lace lingering towards the top of the glass after a long drink-down, though.
Smell: Sweet hop aroma followed by some caramel maltiness and hints of alcohol.
Taste: Hops hit you from the onset and stay with you until the end. It's a puckering bitterness. Alcohol warms your throat and nose towards the end. After taste is much more fruity than I would have expected.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth but thick with moderate to low carbonation. Dries the mouth.
Overall: A very solid Imperial IPA that I would recommend to any hop-head. Not particularly my favorite flavor profile for an Imperial IPA, however, I can still appreciated the quality. Would like to try on-tap, would buy a four-pack if I could share some with friends or family. I would give it 90-93 overall.
